McAfee Antivirus Review

McAfee is a trusted name in digital protection. Its software provides all the necessary features. Its Antivirus software is extremely efficient at finding malware on your mobile or PC. Users also love its iOS and Android apps. To increase security, you can use Windows Hello or a fingerprint sensor, set up alternative devices to authenticate when you enter the door of your home network and then encrypt data and files stored on your device using McAfee’s password manager.

All the features we tested were functional. The scans that were quick took just eight minutes to look for intrusions into areas where viruses are known to infest such as system files or registries. The full scans we ran took a bit longer, but were still less 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.

Customer support is available via Twitter and Facebook but not via email or by phone. There’s also an extensive FAQ library and a vast set of troubleshooting manuals that will aid you in identifying solutions for common problems. If you’re looking for customized tech assistance you can sign up for McAfee’s Techmaster Concierge service to receive one-on-one assistance for your computer, smart devices and other devices.
