Goodbye phishing email
Found the problem and quickly eliminated it.
A Valuable Tool
This software identified and removed many malware files from my old computer. One file was hidden and locked and the Support Team was great in giving me tips on how to locate it, which I eventually did. Now I have a new laptop and, even though it is, it seems to pick up malware daily so using AntiVirus Zap is crucial for keeping it virus-free.
I selected a quick scan. Found 4 threats and deleted them. Works as advertised.
Caught 40 things that got missed before
Holy Cow! 40 threats caught! How could so much get missed by a bigger named app? ZAP is amazing! I kept seeing three threats that I just couldn’t figure out, and they couldn’t get removed either by an app or manually. ZAP got them… and 37 more!
Found 100+ Malware files that I could not manually delete.
Well worth the $4.99, found over 100 infected files that i couldnt manually delete. So far so good!
FINALLY AN APP THAT WORKS
I HAVE BEEN TRYING FOR MONTHS TO REMOVE THE MAC TONIC / MAC ADVANCED CLEANER / MAC AUTO CLEANER BUG ON MY MACBOOK. AFTER RUNNING THE APP, IT LOCATED ALL OF THE FILES THAT WERE CAUSING ME PROBLEMS. THIS APP IS WELL WORTH THE MONEY I SPENT.
I had before Thor Antivirus which appeared as a fake. This one looks just perfect, found viruses and infected emails and removed them. Will let you know more later, because I use it a first day
WORTH EVERY PENNY, DELIVED AS PROMISED, TRY IT YOURSELF
Didnt know that i had to have a malware remover
This app is excellent. Highly recommended for every macbook or iMac.
Completely effective, great customer support
This zero’ed in on two malware/adware programs that had latched onto my computer. One of them seemed to keep returning, so I contacted support, attached the log file, and was recommended to try the browser restore scan then do a restart, which worked. The fact that it works as well as it does, as affordable as it is, and as straight forward as it is, is impressive enough. But to have support follow up with a genuine interest in resolving the issue is something extremely rare to come by these days. I can honestly say: don’t bother with anything else.
Glad I bought it
This is my first review and am taking the time because it works. I had that vicious MacCleaner malware, so i knew i had an issue. It found and cleaned all of those…..found a total of 35 infected files. I’m new to the MacOS world, and I thought they were impervious to malware. Glad I bought it. Well worth the price.
Best App Ever for Mac
I love this this app. I typically run a scan once or twice a month, to ensure all malware/viruses are caught and detained. The only thing I’d like to expand within this app is the conclusion of the virus/malware removal. I wish their was was a more inclusive notification of when the bad items are removed and efficiently cleaned from the computer. Aside from this minor detail, the app is the best.
2 malware and 1 trojan found and removed!
Great app at a small price for the performance! I’m super happy with this app and will tell Mac owners about it.
It found bad things right away
Admittedly, this was the first time I’ve ever used this, but it found some bad stuff and I was able to delete or send to trash.
Worked Great even for a beginner!
A friend told me about Antivirus Zap when I was having malware problems on Mac office desktop. It was a quick fix. I also have a Mac Book and another Mac desktop in my office at home, and I ran it on all three and they are all in great shape.
Didnt know macs could get threats
solved my crisis
I clicked on what I thought was an adobe update (duh, it wasn’t), and my internet experience afterwards was a mess: pop-ups, email not working properly, ugh.
This app worked as I had hoped. It zapped almost 30 problems, and after checking the web browser, all seems to be good. Whew.
Worked great !!
The scan found two threats that i had no idea were on my computer. awesome !
Worked better than others I have tried
For me, Antivirus Zap found threats that were missed by one of the most popular free home solutions (name begins with “S”). I’ve been using the latter for many years and will continue to do so in conjunction with Antivirus Zap, just in case, and also because “S” warns me of sites with potential problems before I visit them and lets me configure the type of content that will triger warnings. Also, I occasionally use another malware solution (abbreviated name = “MB”), which was heavilly endorsed to me by Apple Tech Support, and Antivirus Zap detects threats that were missed by that one, too, although it’s possible that these anomalies were due to the state of my computer at the times I have run“MB” and whether its viral definitions had been updated. I’ll need to do additional comparisons regarding Antivirus Zap and “MB.” Also, the fact that Antivus Zap came out on top may be because Antivus Zap was a paid app, whereas I’ve used only the free versions of the other two utilities.
Found 25 threats
Works great, cheap, easy peasy. No reason not to buy this.
Easy to use
Easy to use, fast and better than the more expensive anti-malware apps.
Easy and does a great job
Two of my favorite things to say about an app is that it is easy to use and that they do a good or great job. This is one of those apps. I know I had to pay for it but compaired to some of the higher rated security apps, this ones best. Only one thing would make it better an that would be it would be free. It has caught viruses and moe that the following security software/apps has missed: Sophos, McFee Security, Fyde, Adguard Pro, and Trend. Now maybe some of those would have caught the viruses, content shield, and more.
I don’t know what made me actually pay for this app when I only wanted the free version with the others, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is I feel that it is doing a good job and it does give you the option for quick scans, or extensive scans, which is nice.
Simple, and Works Well
One reason to own a Mac is that they don’t get viruses etc. as often as PCs. BUT they do get them! We avoid advertised sites and other sketchy-sounding sites, but a few months ago, we started getting alerts that our Mac was infected so Click Here. Obviously an attempt to trick us into downloading viruses! We found this app when we searched for virus scan products for Macs. It’s easy to download and install. Very easy to use. We like that it runs in the background and offers a number of options, such as Quick Scan, Normal Scan, Full Scan, Directory Scan, and Browser Restore Scan. They all seem to take a few hours—even the Quick Scan. But initially, a Full Scan found over 30 infected files. We checked the boxes to allow the app to remove them. Recently, we ran the scan again, and it found 2 more infected files. We plan to run this every week or two from now on!
Works Great, Best $4.99 spent
Updated my adobe flash, the update installed adware/malware and then tried to sell me an ap to get rid of what it just installed. Now I understand why Steve Jobs didn’t like adobe. Anyway downloaded this ap, fired it up for a full scan. It found 39 infected files. I erased them and all is well again. Thanks
I suspected malware, but other programs did not unearth any appreciable threats. My iMac was running slow and appeared to be processing several bacground routines of which I could not see. Yet, I noticed several anomalies, which changed the rendering of specific application icons. This suggested possible malware incursions. The Antivirus Zap located 44 threats one iMac, 8 on another, and two between another iMac and MacBook Pro. It turned out that all four machines found malware associated with an App Store recommended application of which I had been using with confidence. I will contact the developer to be aware of the malware anomaly and/or incompatibility.
