    Unfortunately I can't do anything with the software. I don't like the graphics or the menus.

    It's far too complicated for me to use and it doesn't appeal to me at all.

    Samuel
    08/12/2018

    Tried it out for a short time and did not approve! I prefer other programs.

  • Karsten

    The software doesn't appeal to me visually at all, so using it is no fun!

    Rick

    Even after a few days, I am struggling to use it.

    Gaby

    Somehow the producer's promises sounded quite different. The program does not appeal to me!

  • Leo

    Using the software takes up far too much time. That is too annoying to me!

    I would have liked there to be more options to get in touch with Customer Support. The provided FAQ really didn't help me either.

    The manufacturer claims that the software ensures a safe time on the Internet! I cannot agree with that!

    Somehow the ad blocker doesn't work properly. Surfing like this is no fun!

    The program seems to put a heavy load on my computer and has definitely made it noticeably slower!

    Fabrice
    29/11/2018

    Since I installed the software on my computer, various games have crashed regularly and run noticeably slower.

  • Stefan

    There are some programs that have a significantly better price-performance ratio than this software.

    Marius
    27/11/2018

    Far too few updates, so that software can't detect new threats at all.

    Melina
    26/11/2018

    User-friendly and clear...no way! I can't find my way around the complicated menus at all.

  • Tina
    25/11/2018

    In my opinion, the software's range of functions is too limited, and it does not live up to my expectations.

    Theo
    24/11/2018

    The program regularly hung on me and so I couldn't carry on working. Therefore I have uninstalled the software.

    Heinz
    23/11/2018

    Unfortunately it did not work with my virus software at all, no idea what didn't properly fit together there.

  • Erich
    22/11/2018

    "It pushed my CPU really hard, I probably need a better machine :(
    I wish I had known that before, it would have saved me some frustration!"

    Mira

    The installation was far too awkward and complicated, there is still some room for improvement.

Real-time protection

Through the McAfee real-time protection, users are protected against viruses, trojans, spyware, malware and other harmful objects at all times.

The Active Protection from McAfee automatically scans suspicious material and determines how dangerous the content is. Through the advanced spam protection, users do not have to worry about annoying advertisements or phishing.

 

McAfee inspects the email inbox and all files downloaded from the Internet. This ensures that malware cannot enter the computer via email or through a download. Thanks to the regular automatic product updates, the anti-virus software is up to date and detects the newest hazards. All threats are isolated and completely removed from the computer. This works smoothly in practice.

Safe surfing

addition to the basic protection against viruses and other hazards, McAdffee has  web protection. This consists of multiple elements and guarantees a worry-free stay online. Thanks to several layers of security, criminals cannot access personal data on a computer.

Performance

McAfee is one of the most experienced software developers. That is why they do not just pay attention to a high degree of user-friendliness with their anti-virus program. Thanks to resource-friendly technology, the software does not make high demands on the computer’s hardware. The real-time protection that runs in the background of the operating system does not impact the computer’s performance negatively. The software only impacts the hardware more if the user performs an active search. Nevertheless, users can work with the computer and use other programs at the same time without any restrictions. This is particularly important, because scanning with McAfee needs somewhat more time than with most comparable programs.

Special Features

When compared directly to significantly more expensive security solutions, the McAfee anti-virus program has fewer additional functions. The manufacturer concentrates on what is most important and distinguishes itself with excellent virus protection. In addition to the standard functions, McAfee offers its users valuable 24-hour data theft protection .

 

The anti-virus software can be installed and used on any computer by entering a secure activation code. Users can access their personal data at any time and from anywhere. All important files are automatically encrypted or blocked by the software and therefore protected against curious eyes. Users can even delete or lock their personal data remotely with McAfee and avoid theft.

User-friendliness

After purchasing the software, users receive an activation code and can simply download McAfee on to their computer with this code. The installation only takes a few minutes and is self-explanatory. After that the software will update itself to the latest version and inspect the system. The real-time protection is then activated. The buyer does not have to do anything and can let the software do all the work. The anti-virus program is very user-friendly, has an English user interface and can be operated intuitively. In the standard version, McAfee only works on a Windows PC with Windows 7 or higher. The software works on Macintosh systems, Android and iOS devices in the plus version.
