Just like every other antivirus, this McAfee Antivirus review although offers amazing features per package at a relatively reasonable price, but you might have to pay additional money to be able to access the total protection packages with which comes the anti-malware, file protection, and anti-theft for your Android, Mac, or Windows device. Also, you can use the anti-spam to block spammers and dangerous emails and the True Key app to keep your usernames and passwords safe.
Need I say that there are numerous extra features with the most inexpensive package which to me, is a good thing.
The antivirus is pretty easy to use as you can run a quick and full scan with only a few clicks and you can also set the software to scan for threats automatically. It comes with all the features, and once you are done installing, they become enabled- you don’t even have to restart your devices before use. As mentioned earlier that it comes with anti-spam, firewall protection, and parental controls, all of these can be accessed from the user interface because the process is self-explanatory which makes it easy to use.
However, as good as the McAfee Antivirus brand is, it definitely has some Pros (the good side) and the Cons (the bad side).
Pros are as follows:
- It is easy to install, use and manage: As mentioned earlier, the user interface is set up in a way that quickly helps you to navigate through the settings where you will be able to choose the settings you most prefer. Also, you would be able to update the software when necessary because it does not use heightened “techy” language.
- Effective Virus Removal: The McAfee Antivirus brand is trusted to help get rid of any malicious threats as well as dangerous viruses from your PCs and other mobile devices. Its effectiveness is 100% guaranteed.
The Cons include:
- It is a bit pricey: Well, this should not be a new thing to you if you are familiar with other antivirus brands. Most antivirus brands are either way too expensive or relatively above the normal average price. Do not forget that you might have to pay extra to be able to access some other features.
- It uses more system resources than other antivirus packages.
