| CompuTip - Can Macs or IPhones Get a Virus? J-329

Do you have a Mac or an iPhone? Can you get a computer virus?

🍎

The answer is: Yes and no. All Apple products have strong built-in safeguards against viruses. But Mac computers can and do get infected. IPhones almost never do. See here.

According to Malwarebytes Lab's 2020 State of Malware Report, "We saw a significant rise in the overall prevalence of Mac threats in 2019, with an increase of over 400 percent from 2018."

To be on the safe side, it's a good idea to download and install an antivirus program on your Mac. Check out this article by Digital Trends: The best free antivirus platforms for Mac in 2020. It includes a recommendation for Avast Security for Mac.

 

For more information on Mac security, see this article by How-to-Geek. It includes several useful tips.
