Re: Too much security on Mac OS, is it safe ?

Yes, nowadays lots of security demand is running, unless and until you dint secure your database, anyone can access or steal your identity. Higher level security included in Mac systems are as follows:
  • Mac uses UNIX type access permission which let you know that each and every file and folder will ask you for the permission.
  • Mac has networking and security page which is useful for security like All Secure 1.0 from Edge Rift, Inc 01/13/2009 Secure everything.
  • In Mac application when we open the home screen a prompt appears for the basic security which needs every user to protest from the intruder to access any valuable information.
  • If the user on the internet and accessing bank services so it?s very simple task for the hacker to steal his password or account number with help of different type of software. And it helps to free from antivirus.
  • Mac prevent from this with highly qualified software which is inbuilt.
  • There is a logic behind in? Sign in? feature in Gmail when we try to access that browser its help to protect from the intruder.
  • Mac uses antivirus 1.3 from PC Tools. With this software you are protected against the most nefarious cyber-threats.

I refuse Apple?s new security demand, it?s to lengthy procedure and we have to pass out our personnel information again and again as it prompts a lot of pop up and forces us to fill all the password and keywords ,even though the software is well tested and free of virus. Mostly its show unnecessary prompt regarding malicious content even though if the product is from trusted source, which is unwanted security.

Of course it is good, nowadays you need high level of security to keep your data safe. I have used both OS (Mac , Windows) and always like to keep important data in Mac because less chance of lossing data and virus attacks.
Within 4 years I have formatted my Windows hard drive several times but in Mac never needed.
