Mac security software can be relatively expensive, but not if you go for one of these great deals that offer huge discounts. We're expecting the whole of November to be awash with deals thanks to the fact that Black Friday essentially spans the entire month, right into December, in fact.
So it's well worth keeping an eye on this page as we'll be updating it regularly as new deals become available, including on 27 November - Black Friday itself.
Although some of the packages here are solely focused on macOS, others will also protect Android and Windows devices you might also own, and that makes the price of protection much cheaper per computer.
You probably know that Macs offer good security by design, but antivirus software adds another layer of security and typically offers a lot more than just protection from viruses.
You can still buy plain antivirus, but you're better off going for a security suite that comes with extra features that can help to protect your identity, passwords and financial details: these are the thing that criminals are after, and they'll often use cunning ways to extract them rather than spending time trying to break past Apple's defences in macOS.
Good security software should warn you before you click on a dangerous website, or open a 'phishing' email with a dodgy attachment, which could trick you into handing over your bank details, passwords or other sensitive information.

How to find a good antivirus deal
It can be tricky to know where to start with antivirus.

You can rest assured that we will only share deals here if we think they’re good enough to be worth buying. Everything we share here will be a great saving on a service we trust.
We’d recommend taking a look at our article all about the best Mac antivirus to help you get a better understanding of which services we like most.
You’ll find that antivirus discounts can be huge, often at more than half price for your Mac or mobile devices. Discounts can sometimes be found on antivirus providers' websites as a digital download, while third-party retailers like Amazon, Argos and Currys PC World often have cheap boxed versions, and there's usually the option of a code via email from Amazon meaning you get it instantly.
