Avira Free Antivirus for Mac Review

Avira Free Antivirus For Mac

Avira Free Antivirus for Mac is an excellent example of free Mac antivirus assuring ease of use and perfect malware detection. Avira Free Antivirus for Mac can detect flawlessly 100% of on-access and on-demand malware, or malicious code detected as opened and executed files and during an active scan.

Like Avast Free Mac Security, Avira Free Antivirus For Mac is targeted entirely on detecting malware, and it doesn’t offer many more features. The antivirus user interface is clean, mobile-looking and user-friendly: all you have to do is choose if scan immediately, schedules a scan, or take a look at the quarantine area where malicious code is stored if detected. Settings let you choose either delete immediately malware files or move them to quarantine and if scanning archival files or not.

During scans, you can keep an eye on the data scanned count, and you’ll see a progress bar. Unlike Avast, Avira Free Antivirus for Mac lets you easily schedule scans. You can choose to perform a scan every preset period keeping your Mac clean. It’s possible to perform a quick scan only on potentially dangerous files or a complete computer scan. It’s possible to choose to scan a directory or Critical Locations. The full computer scan will affect your Mac performances. The quick scan is slightly lighter instead.

An Avira’s Browser Safety extension is available on Chrome, Opera and Firefox: it keeps you aware of suspicious websites during navigation and on companies tracking your behaviour, blocking them if you want it.

Avira Free Antivirus For Mac is free forever.


Avira Free Antivirus For Mac is the best malware protection for your Mac: with a 100 percent of malware caught during tests, it boasts scheduled scans and a quick scan mode. The full-system scan impact is a bit disappointing.
