Don’t take our word for it

“As the top Apple tutorialist on YouTube, Malwarebytes for Mac is one of very few pieces of software that I recommend to ALL Mac users.”

‒ David A. Cox

“No intrusions” – On the recommendation of Apple and a friend who is in cybersecurity, we bought Malwarebytes. We have had no intrusions into our computers, and have had many quarantines over several years of suspicious attempts.”

‒ Old A

“I depend on Malwarebytes to protect my mac” – Malwarebytes just works in the background to scan and protect my information. In my 36 years of computer use, all on a Mac, I have never had a crash or lost any information.”

‒ David
