Mac security facts and fallacies
Mac threats have had exponential growth since 2010, when
adware and Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) weren't
really a thing on the Mac yet and when new malware sightings
were few and far between. We're seeing large numbers of
people infected with Mac threats every day, on a much larger
scale than even just a few years ago.
Clearly, there is an epidemic problem with threats--mostly
adware and PUPs--on the Mac, and also clearly, the built-in
security in macOS is not adequate to deal with this problem.
It is becoming increasingly necessary for Mac users to have
an additional layer of security, and in particular, to have
something that is effective against adware and PUPs. If
you're a Mac user, you might consider downloading software
such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac, which removes
adware, PUPs, and malware for free.

1. If you didn't go looking for it, don't install it!
2. If you installed it, update it.
3. If you no longer need it, remove it.
Home Computer Security (for all computers and all users)
The Mac Desktop, like a furniture desktop, may be kept clean
ready for some new project, or like some, piled with things
(icons), such that one has to sort through to find this or
that. There are several good reasons not to clutter your
Desktop unnecessarily. One is that every icon is a running
process that does take some Processor time.
