Online Course: The Practical Guide to Mac Security

Mac Security Course Free

The Practical Guide to Mac Security is a FREE course with 24 lessons that will enable the typical home and office Mac user to secure their Mac from dangers like malware, online account break-ins, data loss, and online scams.

The course includes a free e-book of the same name with even more information and details. This is the second edition of my book The Practical Guide to Mac Security, updated for 2017.

This course is meant for casual Mac users who use their Macs at home or in the office. The lessons will allow you to secure your own Mac without needing to understand complicated computer techniques. It is an everyday guide for everyday Mac users.

Want to know more? You can read about the course, check out sample videos, and see a complete table of contents at the special coupon link below.

Get the course for FREE!

Why is the course free? I (Gary) think that it is very important that every Mac user know the basics of how to keep their Macs safe and stay safe online. I think it is so important that I have decided to make this course completely free so no one has an excuse not to learn about Mac security and Internet safety.
