Scan Exclusions

Configure scan exclusions to increase the scanning performance and skip scanning files that are known to be harmless. When a particular scan type runs, Trend Micro Security (for Mac) checks the scan exclusion list to determine which files on the computer will be excluded from scanning.

  • The file matches the full file path (directory path and file name) specified in the scan exclusion list
