Securing a Macbook Pro

By trailrunner ·
Hi everyone,

I just bought a 2017 Macbook Pro (with i5 cpu and 256 gb storage). I want to make sure it's well secured before I start using it. Can anyone provide tips for making my Macbook Pro more secure? It will be running the newest OS Mojave so maybe there are specific tweaks I can do in Mojave to make it more secure?

For example, do I need to Disable remote management in System Preferences or is this already disabled by default? Useful firewall settings in Mojave?

I've been using Windows for a long time and so I appreciate any tips to make my move to using the Mac a productive and secure experience. Thank you!

Use firewall, malware and adware protection and antivirus because Macs now are quite vulnerable to attacks!
