Mac Virus Removal

Mac Virus Removal

Some people believe that Macs are incapable of getting viruses. Some people have even said that there is no such thing as a virus for Apple products. Unfortunately, that is not the case. There are a significantly smaller amount of malware, spyware and adware programs designed for Mac OS. But sadly they do still exist. Sometimes they are so well hidden that you can't even tell that you have a piece of malware installed. The good news is we can still remove these from your system!

How Do I Know If I Need Virus Removal?

Symptoms of a virus or malware can vary significantly depending on the type of malicious software that has wormed its way into your computer. You may be experiencing major slowdowns that seem like your processor isn't able to keep up with you anymore. Or you may start seeing applications that you never installed appear at random on your desktop. It could be advertisements popping up at random. Or maybe your Mac becoming entirely unresponsive or reacting abnormally to keyboard and mouse inputs. Some malware may even disable certain functions of your device like your Bluetooth, WiFi, etc.

How Can I Protect Myself?

In a similar way to the limited number of viruses and malware out there designed specifically for Mac OS, there is also a very limited array of Anti-Malware. So while steps can be taken to avoid compromising your system, the quality and reliability of such software are not fully up to par with it's Windows brothers and sisters. While Windows ships with Windows Defender installed Mac OS doesn't come with any proprietary anti-virus solution pre-installed either. So even with these preventative steps taken to prevent you from ever being put in this situation, nobody is impervious to it.

What Should I Do?

If you are experiencing any issues like this we recommend that you discontinue use of your device immediately, remove it from any type of internet connection and let a technician scan the device for issues. Any time malware is concerned you are at risk of compromising your data. From theft, partial loss, or possible total loss.
