2 posts in this topic

I wanted to let ESET Security Forum users know about this new version released by ESET, as it provides a great amount of fixes and a few new features that might interest other macOS users.

In particular, you can now:

  • Hide the menu bar icon, so you can set your preference between using the Dock icon, menu bar icon, or no icons at all

Thank you to the developers for fixing a large number of major and minor issues. :D

Apologies to the ESET team if this is against the rules, I know @foneil usually does this, however this update is quite important for resolving a large number of issues that would benefit being announced on the forum (and you have already listed the changelog and version on the ESET website and KB article).
