Antivirus Software for Personal Devices

Check with your Internet Service Provider (AT&T, Comcast, Mediacom, etc.). Most provide a free, full-featured (McAfee, Norton or similar) antivirus solution to their customers for both Windows and Mac devices. Alternatively, Microsoft provides a free built-in and/or downloadable solution for Windows devices (see bullet point below for details). Apple does not provide an antivirus solution for Macs like Microsoft does. You should check with your ISP to download and install the solution they provide to their customers.

Please Note: Other antivirus solutions are available for download but please investigate those claiming to be free. Many are simply trial versions to get you started. A paid subscription is required for updates and continued functionality once the trial period expires.
