  1. A few weeks back, I got a response from PC Matic Product Support about there being no timeline for PC Matic for Mac to receive translation for Apple Chips. I'm currently a Malwarebytes subscriber, but I plan to switch companies due to the lack of scanning for Windows malware. If there's any alternative company I'd want to do business with, my first option would be with a business who's product is completely sourced within the United States. With this in mind, I would like to stay updated on when PC Matic for Mac will get full native Apple Chip support. Therefore, I decided to create a topic for people to discuss the potential release of PC Matic for Apple Chip Macs. If anyone has any information regarding PC Matic's native support for Apple Chips, please be sure to let me know.
  2. If you have Screen Time enabled, and haven't yet added PC Matic to the Always Allowed list, you might want to do so now. In fact, it should be mandatory upon installation. I just discovered that if the feature kicks in when a sub-feature like Downtime or App Limits triggers it, it will prevent the app from running until you return to your Mac, leaving your Mac vulnerable to malware and attacks. To resolve this issue, you must perform the following steps: Open "System Preferences" from either the Apple contextual menu, the Dock, Launchpad, or the Applications folder in Finder. Click "Screen Time" to open the Screen Time preferences. Click the "Always Allowed" tab. Click the search bar, and enter "PC Matic". Check the box next to PC Matic. If a four-digit passcode is set, you will be prompted to enter it. The attached image shows what the window looks like when you complete the above steps. After that, you shouldn't encounter anymore issues with Screen Time stopping PC Matic from running. I hope every end-user of PC Matic for Mac finds this article helpful. I'd hate to see what would happen to other PC Matic users if Screen Time did this to them, too.
