Question: Anti Viruis Protection

I was wondering if it is a good idea to get anti virus for an apple computer. I never really worried about it because Apple is the best computer out there. Please advise. I have a 27 inch mac and 13 inch laptop.

What product does everyone recommend? I currently have AT&T as my internet provider.

iPhone 7 Plus, iOS 11.2.6

No Anti-Virus software or so-called “cleaning” apps are needed or recommended for Mac OS. They can conflict with Mac's own built-in security. At best they will slow your Mac by using unnecessary resources and at worst will bork your entire system.
