Wow, they think Mac users are second class citizens. Look at Norton 360 for Mac, it's a crippled version of Windows. Really disappointed that this feature doesn't support macOS.

Thanks for replying. Well I am aware of it but looks like it won't support macOS. Most of the Macs are already powerful enough to handle crypto mining. Just look at M1 based MacBook Pros, it outpaces most of the PCs sold today.

Mac users are second class citizens. Who could forget the endless "MaCs DoN't Get ViRuSeS!!1!" that has been endlessly (and baselessly) stated forever.
Furthermore, this is a BETA release, if you bought Norton for a BETA and didn't read the fine print, that's on you.

Apple has been targeted in a $50 million ransomware attack following the theft of a trove of engineering and manufacturing schematics of current and future products from Quanta, a Taiwan-based company that manufactures MacBooks and other products for Apple.

@BabayFarqs you STILL don't know the differences between malware, viruses, trojan, ransomware, do you? macOS and Linux are more secure by design and DON'T GET VIRUSES. Just google the differences!! 

Thanks or replying Gayatri but we need support for Mac too!!

Hilarious response from a Mac fanboy. Nothing I said implies what you concluded. It seems it is you who doesn't understand those terms.
