You Guys Should Stop Feeling Superior For Being A Mac Owner

Having a Mac is likely to give people a feeling of superiority, but to what extent will it be?

The dispute between Mac lovers and PC users doesn’t seem to subside anytime soon as a security report has recently stoked the flames when saying that Windows PCs are safer from malware.

Published by an antivirus company named Malwarebytes, the report uncovered a number of different malware types across popular operating systems like Windows and macOS. There’re plenty of findings to chew on, but the most eye-catching part that appeared to surprise most people is that MacOS devices are more exposed to malware attacks than Windows-based PCs.

Mac 1
Macs saw 4.8 threats per device in 2018 but last year, the number skyrocketed to 11.

Based on the data compiled by the company over the years, Malwarebytes have started to calculate the average number of detected threats for every device and an overall figure for the operating system. Macs saw 4.8 threats per device in 2018 but last year, the number skyrocketed to 11. In the meantime, each Windows PC only averaged 5.8 threats per device in 2019.

Malwarebytes said in a statement that threats detected on Macs basically came from adware and “seemingly trustworthy” programs like MacBooster and MacKeeper. Many users have yet to learn about such apps carefully, leading to their Macs being more susceptible to malicious backdoors and malware.

Mac 2
Having a Mac is likely to give people a feeling of superiority.

A commonly-held truth was saying that MacOS is more potent than Windows when it comes to security, but now the report was bound to cast doubt on that opinion. However, the quickest explanation to keep in mind is that the number of Windows users was so much bigger than Mac, so you’ll see a lot more what people had to struggle with the old-fashioned operating system.

Agree to disagree, if anyone out there still keeps a feeling of being superior for having a Mac, he should have rethought, actually.
