Macintosh computers or better known as a Mac have always had a big advantage over PCs because of their immunity to computer viruses. It was virtually impossible for a Mac to get a vicious virus that affected so many of their PC counterparts. However, this has changed in recent years. In 2006, the first virus was reported on a MAC system, and they have become more vulnerable to various hackers as well as online criminals.
For Mac users who want to protect their systems from nasty viruses and hacking, there is a program called MacKeeper. This software encompasses several utilities that will keep your Mac secure, fast and clean without compromising any of its essential features. MacKeeper will manage all of your start-up tasks and maintains a user-friendly approach to keeping your Mac running smoothly. It also fixes many of the common issues that MAC owners frequently deal with.
Update Tracker will keep your Mac up-to-date. It will notify the user if there are any updates available. Login Items will make sure that the start-up of your Mac is quick and efficient, and Default Apps will let you define and customize which applications you want used to open certain files.
MacKeeper includes two utilities that protect your Mac in real life and in the virtual world. The Antivirus software will secure every single action that users perform, and provide the maximum level of security. Antitheft includes a tracking device so it can be located quickly and easily if the Mac is ever lost or stolen. If the Mac has been stolen, users can log in to their account at the MacKeeper website and report the theft. A detailed report will be generated automatically and a photo of the thief is taken. The report is updated every five minutes.
MacKeeper enables users to delete unwanted files permanently, encrypt data, and recover any mistakenly deleted backup folders and files. The data encrypt or ensures that sensitive data is completely invisible. It uses a password to ensure that data cannot be retrieved using Terminal or Finder. The Undelete function scans the hard drive for files that have been deleted but can still be recovered. This is a full scan, which can take up to several hours to perform, depending on the hard drive size. The Backup utility will schedule regular backups so you won’t lose any important data. The Shredder utility will permanently destroy files, and cannot be restored or recovered, so use with caution.
Slow Mac Issues
Issues with a slow Mac usually means that there are excess files, duplicate files, cached web pages, full trash bin and ‘junk’ files. MacKeeper takes care of all of these issues with the utility “Fast Cleanup.” This utility runs four separate utilities in order to determine the exact cause of the slowdown. Fast Cleanup will compile the results and let users know what needs to be cleaned up. It’s a fast, easy process and can clear up 50 gigabytes or more of space.
