MacScan is a utility designed to help you find and remove malware and privacy threats from your computer. The application is very simple to handle, offers you a wide range of useful instructions and tips, and provides you with various helpful features.

In order to get your hands on the trial version of the program, you first need to provide a valid email address on the homepage of the developer. The download process will start as soon as the aforementioned step is completed. Once the utility is saved in your Applications folder you will need to download and install an additional tool in order to find and remove malware threats from your Mac.

You can choose between 2 scan types: one looks for malware threats while the other searches sensitive web browsing files. You need to complete both scans and remove the unnecessary data if you want to keep your Mac clean and protect your privacy. The app also lets you create custom scan profiles, a feature that comes in handy if you want to scan a certain directory on your Mac.

The program will look for privacy and malware threats and provide you with a detailed report. However, you cannot remove any files if you're using the trial version of the app. Furthermore, the utility might take a while to complete the scanning processes and doesn't let you access the Preferences panel or use other built-in tools while finishing the scan.

Briefly, MacScan is an application that might come in handy if you want to protect your Mac from malware and privacy threats. However, I'd suggest you test the trial version before buying the app to see how it works on your Mac.
