About SecureMac

Protecting and educating Mac users since 1999

Before SecureMac was created, no central resource existed that was devoted to Macintosh security, and it was rare for Apple news sites to report security issues. SecureMac was founded on the principle of raising awareness about Mac security, and initially started as Mac-oriented security news portal.

It soon became apparent to SecureMac that Mac users sought security solutions that no company provided at the time. With high demand, SecureMac began to grow, expanding its team and providing security consulting services. SecureMac's rapid expansion culminated in the development of MacScan and PrivacyScan, its flagship products for security, privacy, and anti-malware.

Today, SecureMac is considered by many to be a key contributor to the Mac security world. Over the years, we've received many accolades and awards, which only strengthens our commitment to providing security solutions for our users. We’ll continue to lead the industry with research, news and products to help protect those who love their Macs.
