Specs: Macintosh
What's the deal with ZipCloud? Recommend? If not, who?

I received an email from ZipCloud inviting me to accept a license for only $1.00. I see some comments on the internet from people wanting to 'un-install' ZipCloud. There must be a reason.

What would you recommend?

Await a Mac person but in the meantime keep clear of ZipCloud because it looks dubious.

Bitdefender for Mac - freebie version - is OK. and of course there is a paid for version. Checkout the two versions.

ESET have a version for Mac. I abandoned it as it it seemed to slow the system. Bootup took forever: constant popups tellng me what it's just done or is about to do; innumerable false positives... It also failed to find things on both the Mac drive and Time Machine external drive, which Bitdefender found easily. Whilst no utility finds everything when a given pest is new on the scene, one does expect them to finf a pest once it's been about a while and well publicised; ESET was a disaster in this regard.

I also run ccleaner for Mac at intervals; again the freebie version.
