    Mac has a firewall but it is not activated by default. You'll need to get into System Preferences by clicking on the Apple icon in the upper left hand corner and then go to Security and Privacy. Find Firewall and go to the lower left hand corner and click on the lock to unlock it and make the change to activate the firewall. Save it then click on the lock again to lock it. Avast has a free anti-virus for Mac,install it. For added security,take a small piece of black electrical tape and cover the camera lens and microphone ports.
