macOS Security Features
Back in the day, it was widely believed that Macs would never get computer viruses. That isn’t necessarily true, but there are a lot fewer threats to Mac systems than there are for Windows.
But Macs do a lot to protect their users, including systems like System Integrity Protection, Gatekeeper and code-signing checks. Newer features, like the baked-in T2 chip, can go even further to encrypt and secure a Mac’s drive by barring unsigned operating systems or apps from booting after a teardown.
