App Reviews

  • Great! Except....

    By skulivan
    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.
  • Great Security App

    By PeakA&Pals
    This app is perfect. I originally used McAfee to keep my computer safe from malware and it worked quite well. Then I heard of this app. My oh my was it good. It had a safe place for my precious photos, with password lock. And it had safe web, which is a very nice touch. I use this app alongside an adblocker (I use Adguard) to keep my mobile browsing ad free and safe. By the way, you can link your phone to a pre-existing McAfee subscription like the one I used for my PC so you don’t have to buy several of them to protect your devices. I do have a minor complaint though, even though McAfee has a very user-friendly interface, it lacks the ability to have more advance options to specifically target certain things like malware. Plus the app can be a little buggy. Otherwise great app, worth your time. P.S. I am 14 years old. Thanks for reading this. Now get off your phone and go outside!
  • Is it worth it??

    By Tw2icer
    Security is one of the upmost important things to me, and I’m sure to a lot of you too! Now Mcafee has a mobile security app for devices. I personally was excited for this app. After downloading and registering I scanned my phone. It was easy and a little too quick but who doesn’t like fast and efficient?! Makes me wonder if I even needed it for my iPhone. One of the worlds greatest phones, My iPhone was fine before the install and I really don’t see how it would work on a phone with a real issue. The app is really limited on what it does. It contains 4 different scans that are great but what about scanning apps and programs and emails? It doesn’t really tell me what it really scans other then the 4 main options on the dashboard. So with or without I believe my iPhone will be just fine. I hope Mcafee develops the app more and can show you how the app works when your phone is under a real threat.
  • 1803 windows 10 update left me B@@!$ out!

    By penny wilde
    All my devices got hacked with bad@$$ 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
  • Satisfied

    By The Black Ragu
    My name is Richard, and I’ve had my home PC for about 10 years. For the first three years, I have no security other than the security provided by HP and Windows, and had nothing but problems being able to get online, was any kind of a efficiency, due to all the bugs and viruses, that had infected my operating system. I’ve had mcAfee total protection for the last seven years, & I’m as satisfied as I can be, without having to spend extra for A VPN, or military encryption software. So thank you very much McAfee keep up the good work👍🏾!!!
  • 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..
  • Initial concerns

    By Bigdud73
    So I just recently installed the app and created an account (less than 2 weeks ago). So this is just an initial review. My first concern is you expect me to I trust you with my security but you can’t process special characters in passwords. That is a serious oversight that must be addressed immediately. Besides that glaring flaw things seem to be running smoothly. The program doesn’t seem to slow down my phone; I like the fact that pictures are encrypted but not backed up to the cloud. The built in VPN feature is also very convenient. Please address the password special character limitation.
  • 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.
  • Can’t control background scan or request Signature updates

    By cf67polv5
    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.
  • Purchased From ITunes Store

    By ❤️breaker
    Purchased app from ITunes and after running scans for several days when I connect to WiFi, I registered the software and had problems from the get go. I cannot access my contacts, the location is incorrect, the IMEI incorrect and it says I am not using a SIM card also incorrect. After speaking with tech support they want me to buy a subscription as it says the software was downloaded today but the subscription expired yesterday incorrect. I would like to have a software such as this for my phone but now My concerns are if I pay will this info then be correct? If not, it’s useless and time spent wasted and money spent wasted.
