Malwarebytes is THE software to prevent Malware on your Mac. Get it HERE:
Malware on Apple Computers is scarily common these days (and I hope my friends who work for the Big Apple will back me up with that in the comments!).
While adware (the most common form of Malware from my observation) won’t harm your computer, it can lead to things like identity theft, stolen credit card information, etc. I realize this class may sound like a blatant pitch for Malwarebytes, but the reality is it IS THE BEST ANTI-MALWARE SOFTWARE AVAILABLE! Get it here:
While Malwarebytes will do 90% of the job when it comes to removing malware, there are a few additional steps you may need to take to prevent your Mac from becoming REINFECTED.
Step 1: In each of your web browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox) go into each App’s Preferences and make sure your homepage is whatever it should be. If you see any “funky” language, just delete it and replace it with a website you frequent (usually Google, Facebook, YouTube, or a news site). Also be sure to make sure your extensions are clean of any potential malware.
How to Resolve a Hijacked Web Browser
First Force Quit (Command + Option + Esc) your browser and then HOLD DOWN THE SHIFT KEY when you go to reopen it. Even after you have resolved this, I still recommend running Malwarebytes a second time.
