User reviews of McAfee Security

    So Far So Good

    I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to give my approval for McAfee after having issues with malware and viruses on my company laptop. Working remotely opened my laptop to threats I hadn’t paid much attention to before. I’m not certain how it happened, but going to my company’s website somehow triggered an attack and prompted me to download a fishy looking mock-up of the “new browser” (misspellings was the first red flag). I didn’t proceed, but trying to back out of the browser even was problematic. Thanks to my renewal of the McAfee Anti-virus and Protection Software, all I had to do was initiate a scan and it quarantined and removed the threat within 15 minutes. Unfortunately, the company website is still doing the same problematic prompting and will automatically trigger the process all over again and I have to run the scan again, but I believe that has something to do with the web domain more than with my McAfee protected system.

    Can’t control background scan or request Signature updates

    App Settings have no background scan control. After executing an on demand scan there is, in my opinion no reason for additional background scans especially when the device hasn’t even been in use. If it had background scan controls it would be appreciated. I shut off background activity in iOS and scanner settings but it runs background scans anyway. A waste of battery charge. Also there seems to be no way to request a manual. virus signature update. If it had these capabilities I’d give it 5 stars but without some user control I can only give it 2.

    1803 windows 10 update left me [email protected]@!$ out!

    All my devices got hacked with [email protected]$$ mean worm trojanspysomeware after update. I purchased mcafee aftet i got hit cuz microbrains support advised me only use defender...mcafee couldn’t find it after and remove it with their scanners but i have no blame for them, after I started using security no malware at all! Before hand all my accounts from fb to Experian were taken over. To people out there over 40, take these kids seriously when they tell ya passwords are weak, but strong ones get taken too. Pay the year, save 20 hours or more of your time! Do it

    #Improvements to be made.

    Hi. I bumped your rating up to 4 stars because you now include WiFi VPN in your mobile app. As for the 5th star I knocked off, that is because your VPN doesn’t seem to work with outlook mail from Microsoft. I get a connection issue reaching outlook mail servers and I have to disconnect the vpn services. Also it would be very nice to also use not only a VPN but a Proxy url as well that users could install in the settings app in the WiFi to block certain things as well as create a 1st line of defense against ads. I would also like to see you guys issue a certificate that would then be able to be a profile on the end user as well as have your safe web vpn be adjusted with a feature you had a few years back that allowed users to see and identify the bad websites in real time by the use of a green circled check mark or a red circled Do NoT Enter sign next to each link. I really liked that feature. It’s too bad that was taken away. I will bump back up to 5 stars if these are implemented. I would also like to see a way users could filter out websites based on topic or issue with the Adblock VPN or the SafeWeb VPN or a proxy or certificate for each subject people might want to block that would communicate with the VPN for safe web.

    Great! Except....

    I really like the McAfee Security however, there are some very annoying issues: 1) when protecting more than one device a) had to install several times on each device to get that device to show up in my list of protected devices. Also, the labels aren’t the same as the names I gave them 2) Account homepage still lists duplicate devices when you get a new subscription-still haven’t found a way to delete the devices from expired/previous subscriptions Overall, the actual product is the best in my opinion. Although it takes a bit of finesse to get things organized so you really know your devices are protected using the exact same subscription and its parameters. McAfee needs to streamline this process and let people know to install the software on your Pc FIRST. Then from that Pc, send msgs to your other devices. This way all/everything is in the same place to be administered. If you do not do it this way, it’s all confusing and your list of protected devices won’t be right.
