Limited Time Offer: Download MacScan for Free Today

In celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day, MacScan is giving away their anti-spyware software at no cost. Interested users simply need to download the 5.1MB installer, run it, and use the promotional code ‘PIRATE’ at the purchase prompt during checkout.

This offer is valid until midnight PST on Monday, September 20th, 2010, and includes the download, installation, purchase, and registration processes.

While I’m not particularly keen on Talk Like a Pirate Day, I do appreciate freebies.

Normally, this software is priced at US$29.99.

The necessity for Mac users to implement anti-virus or anti-spyware measures is a topic of ongoing debate. Opinions vary widely, with some advocating for the mere use of common sense, while others recommend maximum caution.

For those who prefer to err on the side of caution, this is an excellent opportunity to enhance your Mac’s security at no cost.

Given the theme of this announcement, I’m apparently required to use at least one pirate-themed word. So here it goes: “Djibouti.” Are we all content now?

Important note: For those outside the USA, make sure to adjust the currency to US Dollars on the checkout page to avoid being charged $0.01.
