Logs

On the Logs screen, you can see what Antivirus for Mac has done to protect you. From here, you can also see the list of quarantined files that may contain malicious software.

Use the dropdown list next to Log Type to select which kind of records you would like to see. You can choose from four types:

Log Type

Description

Scan Results

This list appears by default when you first open this page, and shows all the files that may contain malicious software found while scanning your Mac.

Unsafe Websites Found

This list shows all the websites blocked because they contain malicious software or seemed involved in online fraud. The Page Rating column shows the risk of opening a particular site.

Because some attackers have found ways to sabotage legitimate websites with malicious software, seemingly trustworthy websites may sometimes appear here.

Websites Filtered

This list shows all the websites blocked according to the Website Filter categories that you have selected.

Updates Received

This list shows all of the updates downloaded by Antivirus for Mac since the last time you purged the list.

Folder Shield

This list shows all the programs blocked because they tried to open or make unauthorized changes to files protected by Folder Shield.

Use the dropdown list next to Period to broaden or narrow down the results shown for a particular log. You can see just the results for Today, the Last 24 hours, the Last 7 days, or the Last 30 days. Choose Customize to select specific dates.

Selecting Scan Results as the Log Type displays a List Quarantined Files... button at the bottom of the window. Click it to see the list of files quarantined during previous scans.
