McAfee is a reputable name for digital security, with software that hits most of the important buttons. Its Antivirus software is extremely efficient at detaching malware from your mobile or PC. Users also love its iOS and Android apps. You can increase security by using Windows Hello or a finger print sensor, or setting up other devices for authentication at the point of entry to your home network and also encrypting files and data on your device.

All of the features we tested were functional. The quick scans took only 8 minutes to find any intrusions into areas that viruses are known to infect such as registry files or system files. The full scans took a little longer, but they were still shorter than average in 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.

Twitter and Facebook are the only way to contact customer support. Contacting customer support via email or phone is not an option. You can also get solutions to common problems with the comprehensive troubleshooting guides and an extensive FAQ library. If you’re looking to get the most customized tech assistance you can avail McAfee’s Techmaster Concierge service and receive one-on-one support for your computer, smart devices, and other technology.
