Responding to Alerts



Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated Mac User Guide.

If SecureAnywhere detects a potential threat on your Mac, it may display an alert.

To respond to an alert:

  1. When an alert displays, it prompts you to make a decision:
    • If you aren't sure how to manage this item, we recommend that you click OK to block it.
    • If you are absolutely certain that the detected activity is legitimate, click Ignore to proceed.


    The system moves blocked items to quarantine. For more information, see Managing Quarantined Items.
