Avira Free Mac Security
Keep your Mac protected with Avira Free Mac Security

The Mac isn’t a platform that is traditionally associated with security issues, but in reality it is just as prone to them as Windows and almost any other operating system. These days, the increased popularity of Macs means that the platform is just as much at risk of virus and malware infections as others, but this is something that Avira Free Mac Security aims to address. The application offers protection against a range of forms of malware and is as discreet as possible.

The idea behind Avira Free Mac Security s that it should be all but invisible to the user. It works silently in the background, only appearing and asking for input when absolutely necessary. Right from the word go, the software offers protection, checking for new updates and malware definitions as soon as installation is complete. After a scan has been performed the app will slip into the background and continue to do its job.

Avira Free Mac Security constantly monitors your system for potential security problems, including real-time protection being switched off. By default, should one or more problems be detected, they can be fixed in one fell swoop with a single click, but you do still have the option of dealing with them all individually if you prefer. Heuristic detection means that even without the very latest definitions install, suspicious activity should be detected.

Avira is a trusted name in the security world and this Mac release shows the usual signs of quality and as an added bonus it is available completely free of charge. The absence of a price tag applies not only to home users, but also businesses meaning that this could be a great security tool for any small company on a budget.

Verdict:

 Such a great security tool, it’s amazing to find that it is free of charge. A great tool for travellers and the careless alike.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
