ClamXAV for Mac

03 March 2021

Virus checker based on ClamAV.

What is ClamXAV for Mac

ClamXAV is a popular virus checker for OS X.

Time to take control

ClamXAV keeps threats at bay and puts you firmly in charge of your Mac’s security. Scan a specific file or your entire hard drive. Set it to scan automatically or run instant checks on suspicious files. It’s entirely up to you.

Silent and deadly

ClamXAV is light on processing but heavy on malware. You won’t even notice it working away in the background - but threats to your Mac will, as virus definitions are constantly updated.

You and your Mac

Whether you’re a home user, business user or education user, ClamXAV provides effective malware protection on a single Mac or an entire network. With generous volume discounts available, it’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

What's new in ClamXAV

Version 3.2:
  • Now runs fully natively on M1 Macs

No performance degradation on my iMac running Big Sur. Sophos Home Premium was a big drag on my system.

All this whining about fees and then AVG and Avast started to meddle with SSL and selling browser usage data. Be the product or pay a fee. I know what I choose.

Worked reliably for years. I don’t mind the price, since such a piece of software requires to be constantly looked after.
