The truth is that we all stand a risk of being attacked when we jump online, with hackers striking every 39 seconds on average according to a Clark School study at the University of Maryland. As such, it's important that you invest in a decent antivirus to protect yourself online—even if you're browsing on a Mac.
While other programs sacrifice performance in exchange for security, TotalAV actually comes equipped with a suite of features that can boost your device's performance, all the while giving hackers the boot. The software is compatible with Mac, PC, Android, and iOS — so will work with your device of choice and it's currently up to $80 off (click here to learn more).
Delivering complete antivirus protection, TotalAV performs a full system scan to locate, quarantine and eliminate malware, Trojans, adware, spyware, and more online threats. TotalAV prevents unauthorized users from tapping into your private data with a two-way firewall, and it features a VPN to keep you safe whether you're banking online or just posting on Facebook.
However, what really makes TotalAV stand out among other security tools is the suite of performance boosting features it comes with. TotalAV locates and removes files bogging down your computer via the file manager and removes any unwanted caching or browsing history for faster surfing online. You can even easily identify specific errors and programs that are dragging down your device and eliminate them for better browsing.
Rather than force users to choose between speed and protection, TotalAV delivers both in a single award-winning system. For those curious about how TotalAV can elevate their devices' security and performance, you can learn more here.
