The Mac I use, that has my parents information on it and all that, just got a very bad virus alert, but I hopefully figured it out

Here's the list of things I did

1. Logged out and said DO NOT OPEN THE WINDOWS
2. Logged back in and clicked safari
3. X'ed out everything that had a virus alert
4. Cleared the history

Do you think it's fine?

If the virus is already on your computer you gotta run anti-virus.

>Clears browser history to stop a virus from infecting the files
You really are new to this, aren't you? Anyway, you shouldn't have gotten a virus from that agar.io link unless you clicked on an advertisement in it. If you want to rid it, if one even exists (Sometimes they're false alarms), run an anti-virus. Not Norton.

It could've been a false alarm, it's running normally rn

Maybe there is an keylogger running in the background right now.

That's a possibility and its that's the case, I recommend you to download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Like really. If its keylogger, all you games and everything else would have a chance with data being stolen.

Yes your computer is fine could be minor adware but try not download unpublished programs or opening any type of websites. agrari.o is an example some are copies not to pertain to the official game these copies lead you and open suspicious warnings that if you click can lead to virus so try preventing that overall it's fine try activating and anti-virus if you have

What website? (It doesn't really matter)
You should download MBAM anyway just to be sure nothing happened to your Mac.

You can still get viruses on a Mac, it's just less common becuase most virus are for PCs. The reason being that the people who make viruses want their virus to be on more computers and there are more PCs.
