Free Anti-Spyware for Mac
Who doesn’t love free software? MacScan is a full service anti-spyware detection tool for Mac OS X and for a short time is available entirely for free, so you need to jump on this one quick. For a limited time only (just today: 9/20) you can download this anti-spyware tool for FREE.
Get the free anti-spyware tool for your Mac:
- Go to the MacScan download site for the 5.2mb installer
- Launch the app and when prompted, click on “Purchase MacScan”
- In the ‘Coupon Code’ section on the right hand side, enter in “PIRATE” to bring the cost to $0 (make sure the currency is set in US Dollars)
- Continue through the checkout to get your MacScan serial number
- Download, install, and register by midnight PST today 9/20!
After you get your serial number you just need to register it with MacScan by selecting ‘Register MacScan’ from the menu, this will unlock all the features.
If you happen to miss the boat, you can still download and use the spyware detection tool for free but it has some limited functionality and will expire after 30 days. There really isn’t that much spyware floating around in Mac OS X which is a wonderful thing, but it’s still nice to have the ability to check in case you suspect spyware is installed.
If you want to dig into the nittygritty of it, we have covered how to check spyware on the Mac before using completely manual methods, it’s a much more technical approach than using a 3rd party utility like this though.
Hats off to TUAW for finding the deal.
