SecureMac MacScan 2.5 Review

Pros: Easy to operate ; Quick scans;
Cons: Strictly protects against spyware; No browser protection;
The Verdict: MacScan 2.5 offers spyware protection through a quick and easy process.



MacScan is the answer for those looking strictly for spyware protection. Pinpointing Apple-specific threats, including the DNSChanger trojan horse, this software detects and removes spyware. Although the interface isn’t as sleek as Intego’s, we had no problem tweaking options or using the scan scheduler. Running a scan on a new Lepoard-based MacBook Pro took just 5 minutes, and the MacScan spotted one threatening cookie. With MacScan’s Blacklisted Cookie Scan, you can remove blacklisted tracking cookies from a list of browsers without losing all your saved usernames and passwords. In addition, automatic updates makes sure your software stays current to protect against the latest threats.
