  • I have had Trend Micro since around 2005 for windows XP and it has worked great. I have recommended it to many friends and family.
    last year 2017 I bought a Mac Book Pro.
    I would not recommend for Mac users.
    Trend Micro parental controls even on High (child) setting won't stop porn sites from opening up.
    I chatted with customer service about this issue and after he did some checking I was told that their product has limitations on Mac and this is one of them.
    So, if you have a Mac and want great parental controls DON'T get Trend Micro.

  • Garbage. I installed on Mac and I can't even FORCE QUIT the program as it just sits there hanged and unresponsive to anything like it was my new desktop background. That's a first for me, how'd ya manage that Trend? Do I now need to buy another anti-virus to remove YOUR antivirus, is that the deal eh? smh
