    • Smart Scan:
      Check files and folders that are most likely to contain malicious software. Quicker than a Full scan and generally detects the same threats.
    • Custom Scan:
      Check files in a specific location on your Mac.
    • Full Scan:
      Scan all the files on your Mac. Takes longer than other types of scans but checks every file on your Mac for malware.
