McAfee AntiVirus Review

McAfee AntiVirus provides a complete package of security and protection features. From an antivirus scanner and password manager to help secure and organize your most crucial information to tools that enhance PC performance, McAfee is one of the most complex and comprehensive offerings in our 2024 Antivirus Review; offering protection from cyberjacking, ransomware, malware, phishing scams, spyware attacks and other common threats against your system.

McAfee AntiVirus can be installed quickly and is ready for action immediately after. Its main window presents you with either an report that your protection looks strong, with advice on how to maintain that state, or it warns of potential threats. In addition, six panels appear below: Check Your Protection Score, Antivirus, Secure VPN, Tracker Remover and Protect More Devices.

Install McAfee on any of your devices – computers or smartphones alike. Use the McAfee App to search and automatically install software onto specific devices, while sharing its unique activation code via QR codes or emails links for mobile installations. Activate it now – it may come in handy should you need to reinstall on other devices in the future!

McAfee AntiVirus’s antivirus scanner successfully detected and removed every piece of malware on our test system, an impressive feat; yet to stay safe it’s advisable to run full virus scans after installing any new programs or opening suspicious files just to be safe.

Antiphishing capabilities complement malware removal capabilities very effectively; we conducted extensive antiphishing tests with 100 active phishing URLs and it managed to keep 53% from entering their browser, while eliminating payloads on 46% – a very impressive performance that rivals any antivirus product we’ve tested in terms of detection capability.

Though McAfee offers excellent protection, I wish its interface were simpler for accessing its various features. For instance, its Password Manager exists as its own separate application while TotalAV and Bitdefender include it directly into their antivirus tools. Furthermore, accessing Parental Controls or Identity Theft Protection requires clicking three distinct menus.

McAfee Customer Support portal features helpful articles and guides designed to assist in self-resolving most issues; however, should you need direct help, you have two methods available to you: email or phone support is always available 24/7 while email response time was fast in our tests; phone support was 24/7 but required lots of personal information such as your phone number and location in order to provide support compared with its competitors who typically only request your name and email address to provide help – despite this minor drawback, McAfee customer support is excellent and should be considered one of its main assets compared with its competitors: its overall customer support is excellent; overall it makes this an essential addition for any business looking for good customer support services: it makes an invaluable partner ally.
