Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are among the best times to think about renewing your security software, and even though those dates are over for the year the sales are still on for now.

Antivirus companies offer enormous discounts around this time of year, meaning you could protect your Mac or iPhone for a fraction of the price you’d normally pay. Here, we round up the best antivirus deals for your Apple devices and beyond.

Best antivirus deals for Mac and iOS

Below are the best antivirus deals available to buy right now. They'll be available for your Mac, but most offer the ability to download and install on more than one device, including a Windows PC and mobile devices.

How to find a good antivirus deal

It can be tricky to know where to start with antivirus. Protecting your tech from malware, ransomware and other cyber attacks is such an important thing to do, but most of the services available appear to be very similar to one another, so it’s hard to understand which are the most secure, and which are the best value.

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.

Keep an eye out for deals on antivirus with zero-day attack detection and ransomware protection, and it’ll be even better if it has a cloud element or artificial intelligence.

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, and you can also see our sister site Tech Advisor’s list of the best antivirus for Windows.

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.
