The Best Antivirus for Mac 12.8 – Norton Download 2022
Norton for Mac 12.8 package tries to get you to download the company’s free Identity Safe, a password-management app that’s available to anyone without any purchase. However, even after declining to use it, it shows up as an option in the browser and, inexcusably, the Norton Security installer adds a browser extension, though it doesn’t activate it. I’d prefer to be able to decline this and have it go away. And Norton should absolutely not be installing even non-activated unrelated software extensions.
When asked, the company told us that “Norton Security for Mac conducts manual and automatic scans which compare the signature of the files on the device against known attack signatures to identify threats. These scans take place when files are created, copied, or modified in addition to disks and removable media. No user documents are submitted or uploaded to Symantec during this process.”
