During virus scan, Kaspersky Security Cloud 19 for Mac checks your macOS and files on your Mac for viruses and threats. You can run different types of scans, which vary depending on their duration and scope. 

  • Full scan. The entire computer is scanned. This takes considerable time.
  • Quick Scan: Startup objects, system memory, and hard drive boot sectors are scanned. This scan does not take much time.
  • Selective Scan: A selected file or folder is scanned.

You can:

  • Run a scan from the application interface
  • Run a Full or Quick scan through My Kaspersky 
  • Set a scan schedule so that scan tasks run automatically
  • Edit the scope of scan tasks
