Introducing MacScan 3.2 from SecureMac

Released June 13, 2019

New version improves privacy in Safari, offers significant UI/UX upgrades

Las Vegas, Nevada — SecureMac is pleased to announce the latest version of its award-winning security software for macOS: MacScan 3.2. This release offers some significant improvements, including UI/UX enhancements as well as a big change for Safari users concerned about privacy.

We’ve seen some seriously disturbing cybersecurity news of late, from entire cities crippled by ransomware to 12-year-olds on dating apps. And unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be much good news on the macOS front. At a recent Mac security conference, a number of researchers and developers noted the dramatic surge in macOS malware—and at Apple’s own Worldwide Developers Conference last week, privacy and security issues were, tellingly, front and center. The days of naively believing macOS to be a “safe” alternative to Windows are definitely at an end.

Fortunately, MacScan 3.2 continues to build on the success of previous versions, delivering the most powerful and intuitive MacScan yet, and allowing macOS users take control of their digital security and privacy like never before.

MacScan 3.2 introduces support for Full Disk Access in macOS 10.14, which means that Mojave users will now be able to detect and clean privacy threats in Safari using MacScan’s Internet Clutter Cleanup feature. Internet Clutter Cleanup offers a fast and easy way to scan for and identify privacy threats hiding in Safari—and delete them with a click. It’s also possible to blacklist tracking cookies to keep repeat offenders and known threats from ever making it onto your system.

In addition to these privacy enhancements in Safari, MacScan 3.2 will offer a range of UI/UX improvements, as well as a minor bug fix that ensures scan logs will display properly on all versions of macOS.

Lead Developer Nicholas Ptacek summed up SecureMac’s development philosophy this way: “Computer security has traditionally been viewed as something complicated and scary, so one of our goals with MacScan 3 has been to make the process of securing your Mac as easy as possible for computer users of any skill level. To that end, we’ve worked hard to provide an intuitive user interface so that our customers can spend less time worrying about security and more time getting things done on their Macs.”

In addition to the improvements in version 3.2, MacScan will continue to offer the same powerful set of security features that has made it so popular over the years:

  • Scheduled scans for protection and convenience. Detect and clean all sorts of malware—from trojans and keyloggers to adware and spyware—at a time that works best for you. Lightning fast scans that run when you say so, allowing you to stay safe while getting the most out of your Mac.
  • Automatic malware definition updates. Malware authors are unleashing new malware single every day. But with automatic definition updates, your MacScan will always have the latest intel on what the bad guys are doing—detecting the new threats as they appear and keeping you safe.
  • Robust help and support. With a comprehensive user guide and one-click support, MacScan users never have to go it alone. All the power of one of the most intuitive, well-engineered security tools around, with dedicated support from the folks who built it.


MacScan 3.2 is available from $49.99 for a one-year subscription, with cost-saving options for multi-year plans as well as licenses that protect up to three machines.
