McAfee Antivirus Review

McAfee has been in the antivirus business for a long time. It was founded in 1988 and is also recognized for its firewalls, antispam products, encryption of files and public key infrastructure. It is best known for its anti-virus products and has a strong foothold on the market. Security suites that it offers provide comprehensive protection against malware and viruses and are protected by a $1 million identity theft guarantee.

All McAfee plans include a full comprehensive malware scanner that can stop the entry of malware into your system and kill or quarantine any viruses already inside. Its real-time protection engine is designed to stop malware files from downloading. It also redirects data and encrypts it to ensure that your online activity cannot be intercepted and used against you.

During our tests, McAfee always received top marks in test of AV-Test’s 0-day and our malware protection test. It also scored well on our privacy tests, scoring 100% in all of the categories.

The interface of the suite is simple to navigate and easy to navigate and clean. It’s a little hard to access features such as parental controls or identity theft protections. The dashboard is divided into distinct menus. Help is quite difficult. There is a McAfee community forum is active, however you’ll have to pay for Techmaster Concierge to get help with more complicated issues.

McAfee’s system scan could not eliminate some junk files from our test systems. It also does not provide the ability to drag and drop a directory or file into the suite to scan like a lot of competitors do. This is a major no-no for a security software that costs this much.
