SimpleumCheck free download for Mac


Version 3.0.0

Provides security checks and recommendations.

SimpleumCheck overview

SimpleumCheck is a free "security advisor" for Mac. This resourceful little program makes a security check on the computer and shows you what security settings you should make. On our website we inform in detailed F.A.Q. articles about where and how you can change the settings. Basic-Check, Professional-Check and Paranoid-Check provide enlightenment and certainly also some astonishment about which security settings are not enabled by default. All three stages of the checks are always automatically run. You can decide what recommendations you want to follow.

  • The Basic-Check and the corresponding changes of the settings are recommended for each user.
  • The Professional-Check is particularly valid for professional/business use and is also aimed for secret holder etc. However, we recommend that each user also look at these results and consider the recommendations.
  • Those who would like to follow the recommendations of the Paranoid-Check are ready to give up comfort and functionality for a high level of security. Here, for example, Bluetooth and the microphone are turned off.

Pros: easily provides useful info to enable anyone to improve the security of their system. Cons: too much info! SimpleumCheck has created a database of recommended settings to increase security on a Mac. They have broken things down into three categories: Basic, Professional, and Paranoid. Each category has around 20 checks that are broken down into high, medium, or low risk as well as showing which checks that your system passed. That is a lot of info, but if you want to simply focus on the high risk items then you can get some good things done in the first ten minutes of using the app. Every recommended setting has a "Learn more" link that opens a web page with a brief description of the setting and clear steps that show "How to fix it". With this web information, SimpleumCheck becomes a useful free tool for all levels of Mac users that want to learn about taking care of their Mac for themselves.
