With a focus firmly on the basics of Mac malware eradication and online identity security, Malware Premium + Privacy for Mac eschews the popular concept of a comprehensive security suite for a more discerning approach to defense.

While the program combines ultrafast scanning with a global VPN that five users can use to anonymously connect to the online world, Malwarebytes Premium + Privacy does without a password manager, parental controls and a firewall. Further, the effectiveness of Malwarebytes protection is questionable because the software examines only a small portion of your computer’s files and it has not been subjected to third-party evaluation.
