Overall Score


McAfee is an antivirus giant, now owned by Intel (since 2011) is probably the most well known security software out there. However, in 2014, Intel confirmed that they were going to drop the McAfee branding and concentrate on a design much like the rest of their products. The software itself is still feels like a McAfee product, even with the re-skin of the interface from intel, and of course still picks up those nasties as effectively, if not more efficiently than ever before! Intel have also introduced products for small businesses and enterprises, which would make sense seen as Intel’s market is so broad. Pushing a commercial product like this to their clients in the commercial world should be easy, but does that mean you should use their product?

McAfee Total protection is the top of the range antivirus suite they offer and at only $6.65 s month obviously this is a great saving and we’d definitely say it’s worth shelling out whilst the offer is still valid. The product is an award winner so this implies the product is going to exceed expectations, along with its huge feature set (much more than just an antivirus package) and fresh new design it’s definitely worth a look! To top it all off, McAfee say you can ‘Protect every device you own with the same subscription at no extra cost’. This completely obliterates the competition by eliminating the idea of extra licenses for additional devices, which is outstanding value for money!

Product Reliability

Product Reliability

Reports and tests prove that McAfee is very good at detecting what’s good and what’s bad, which ultimately means the end user won’t get frustrated from legitimate software being banished to quarantine - this makes for a top-notch user experience, along with the polished user interface and immense feature set.

Customer Support

Customer Support

Like most antivirus/security company website’s you get a dedicated support centre to guarantee you can find the solution to any problem. Just like Norton, you get a categorical breakdown of supports sections and search functionality. However unlike Norton you can’t get into live chat without filling a form out - the form idea seems to be a universal idea from security companies, implemented some way or another probably to prevent spam on their sites. It may take a little longer for you to connect to a support representative however you are guaranteed a great service. A bit of typing before connecting means you don’t have to introduce yourself and answer the generic ‘get to know you’ questions when joining the chat or phone call - which of course will save your time! Oh and at peak times, we waited an average of 2 minutes to get connected, which we think is awesome!

Product Features

Product Features

The feature set from their Total Protection suite is exceptional in comparison to the opposition. You not-only get an antivirus but also password storing, anti-spam and encryption software all built into the one package. It seems like McAfee are concentrating on preventing malicious attacks rather than just dealing with the problem when it occurs, which is a step-above the rest and should give you a lot of confidence when using this sleek software suite.

So far the worst Antivirus for me. Not recommend.

Michael - 2 weeks ago

I have been using this product for several years but am going to change to another antivirus. The reason being no matter how many times I set it up to do a full scan twice weekly at 7 pm it never does. If I do the full scan manually it always stops at about 40% and again at 65% and I have to keep clicking on it to make it carry on with the scan, so no question of being able to leave it to do a full scan on its own.

Absolutely useless. 2 computers severely infected and slowed and this product showed nothing. Used a FREE software which found several infestations and resolved them. Called their customer service and they offered me a lifetime discount of 80%. They know its useless. Get yourselves free software does a better job overall on all uses. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE nice packaging, but totally useless. Nothing free version of AVAST or CCleaner cannot perform substantially better.

Have been using for a number of years, works in the background without any problems whatsoever, where other users have complained about being slow this is probably due to an update taking place whilst it may seem to take a while to update its no inconvenience. It's not that confusing in fact it's quite simple if you just step back and look at what it gives you.

McAfee is okay but seems like it has slowed down my PC.

Ishtiaq - 10 months ago

Heard lots about this product but seems to confusing to install. I have since refunded.

Ian Andrews - 1 year ago

Never had any issues with McAfee, always been with them and probably wouldn't change. However I'm very very tempted to try TotalAV out. Maybe when I'm due for renewal i'll give it a whirl?

Johnea Reynolds - 1 year ago

I've been using the Total Protection for all devices over 2 years now. Great software and I'll renew again next year. Norton is good, but when it has a glitch, it's a big one and it interferes with other programs and slows down computer at times. fee McAfee for me.

I can't believe I paid for this software.. I seem to have even more issues on my pc since using McAfee. Pop up ads everywhere, and when I scan my machine it says that my pc is totally virus free. Useless.
