  • McAfee App Sent Phishing Message

    By Beekeeper911
    I received the following alert from the McAfee App, that my Wi-Fi was under threat & I should disconnect - “1 threat found. Scan complete. [(MY WI-FI NAME)] - Your personal info is at risk, Disconnect Now!” I was uncomfortable about this message using my Wi-Fi name in a pop up, so I called McAfee & they were unaware of why this message was sent. That Representative told me that it was a Phishing attempt & to disregard the ‘email’! She sent me to Technical Support, when I explained that this alert came from the App. Tech Support was also unaware of this message, but after speaking to someone, ran me through disconnecting & reconnecting my iPhone from the Wi-Fi. As I have not had Wi-Fi trouble, there was no reconnect issue. But then, the tech told me that my PASSWORD was weak (it is very strong) & that I should change it. This felt fishy to me. I tried to tell the McAfee Tech that they should check to make sure THEIR APP hadn’t been hacked. I did not feel that they understood. I then called AppleCare to report this. AppleCare does not have an avenue to contact developers about such issues. I am hoping that McAfee will read this review and check their system. I am trying to be helpful here, and I see that someone actually responded to a previous concern.
  • Tried others and wasn’t happy

    By Lil'Ed@256
    Soooo glad I decided to give this app a shot.. I wasn’t very impressed at all with look out or norton.. McAfee has been around since I purchased my very first computer when I was in my late teens.. it saved me then and I know it will save me from issues now.. thanks for having a brilliant mind and 5 steps ahead of the evil people.. ***UPDATE*** this just doesn’t get any better.. what are you waiting on.. don’t let online scammers steal your identity.. jump on the McAfee wagon.. still loving this app MANY MONTHS later..
  • Not what I expected

    By CoFeMomma
    I subscribed to the 5 Device Protection Plan for our family PC, and all of our mobile devices. When I added my phone, it took me to the App Store to download the McAffee App. Before downloading the app I made sure to read thru to make sure my phone was compatible. The app says it is compatible with all iPhone iOS devices, so I started the download. When the app opened, it looked nothing like the preview on the App Store. There is no scan button at all. Then I find out that Apple doesn’t work with other antivirus programs so I basically paid for a plan I don’t need. I will still keep my subscription, I will just downgrade to the basic PC plan.
  • Works great but missing some awesome features

  • Really useful!

    By Carsonnian
    I’ve found myself doing scans often, and I feel my devices are much safer with this app on it! I personally love the anti-theft feature, which you can trigger via another device to have your device go off, whether notifications are on or not!
  • Great UI refresh. Well done McAfee.

    By Stkino
    I have been complaint to McAfee about not having any security features, but they don’t let me down this time. WiFi security and safe browsing can definitely protect my privacy and secure my data. Love it the new update. Highly recommended.

    By Chachota
    I finally discovered a system to find my cell phone. I am sooooooo excited- you have no idea. I have bought so many gadgets but none work as well as this. Thank you from an “older person” who really really appreciates this feature😍
  • Need improvement

    By Possum51
    Being able to secure your photos is great. Retrieving them to view and or share isn't an easy thing to do more so when the app wants you to delete them from your phones photo albums. Plus with iPhone I can’t link mobile app to my mcafee account, why is that ?
