Did anybody try antivirus for MAC? Is it worth?

Anyone who thinks a MAC cannot get a virus is wrong. I worked as a contractor for the U.S. Navy - as a systems administrator and for my assigned systems, was the security administrator as well. I got notices twice a month when the U.S. Department of Defense released Information Assurance Vulnerability Alerts (IAVAs - you can look them up on the web). While admittedly it was RARE to see a notice of a MAC virus, it happened now and then. And all it takes is one virus to really ruin your day.

Mac's can't get a virus. So unless it does malware as well (they can get Malware), it's a complete waste of time and resources (and money if you paid for it).

I run the Bitdefender entire home solution known as Bitdefender BOX.
It includes a/v software for the Mac. I feel better that it's there. I don't want to pass along any files that might have a virus or anything malevolent to my friends.
I would highly suggest this solution (BOX) if you have any kind of smart home.
Yes I feel better protecting my Mac, and preventing ransomware.
Yes, I would suggest an a/v program.
