McAfee Antivirus Review

Categories: Open Mic

McAfee is a well-known brand in digital protection. Its software has all the right buttons. Its Antivirus software is extremely efficient at detaching malware from your computer or mobile device. Customers also highly rate its iOS and Android apps. For extra security, you can use Windows Hello or a fingerprint sensor, or set up other devices to authenticate your access point of your home network, and then encrypt data and files stored on your device with McAfee’s password manager.

All of the features we tested worked. The scans that were quick were quick, taking just eight minutes to detect intrusions within areas where viruses are known to infect, such as system files and registries. The full scans we conducted took a little longer, however they were much shorter than average for the field.

The antivirus itself is easy to navigate and uses a clean interface with all functions carefully grouped into their own tabs for convenience. The Tracker Remover feature is especially helpful, deleting cookies and temporary files that can eat up space and potentially provide hackers with sensitive information. Unfortunately, accessing some of the most important features, such as parental controls and identity theft protections, requires you to log into a separate online dashboard.

Support is available on Twitter and Facebook, though not by email or phone. There’s also a comprehensive FAQ library and a thorough set of troubleshooting guides which can assist you in solving common issues. McAfee’s Techmaster Concierge is the best option to get personalized tech assistance.
