The product is no longer a simple antivirus like many other antivirus's. Along with being a great antivirus and security tool, you also get malware protection, network security, online web advisor, and optimization tools. All the features will be reviewed and an unbiased verdict will be given.

Security

Security is top notch in McAfee's latest version. The security features and performance are ranked among one of the top performers. The database about the latest malware and attacks is kept updated to protect millions of its users. Every antivirus scans all the files and folders, but McAfee antivirus also checks suspicious activities that are going on. Activities like programs running automatically or files moving by themselves. Suspicious activities are then compared with “reputation indicators” that are then by the company’s Threat Center.

Browsers are equipped with tools to detect suspicious links. McAfee's browser extensions are also available for browsers like  Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. The tool is well made to help you avoid suspicious links and even keeps malware from downloading. Along with browser protection, you can keep your children safe. The social media guard is an excellent feature. It monitors your social media activity, identity thieves, malicious posts and accounts as well. It is a good tool to keep your children safe.

McAfee Active Protection

McAfee Active Protection keeps you secured from various web attacks. The software scans, and blocks the dangerous emails. There are online threats like viruses, trojans, and spyware to secure your web content. There are layers of internet security that block sites which try to gain access to your personal information. You can consider it as a traffic cop that's constantly patrolling you. There are color-coded icons next to the search results indicating site as safe or warning you for possible malicious code, phishing, or spams.

Ease of use

The antivirus with all of these security checks barely showed any sign of slowing down my devices that shows how well structured the antivirus is. Additionally, this software is made easy to use for an average user to understand. The program is well designed and managed where you can jump straight to your desired location in a single click from the tabs at the top. The information about your scans is all shown in a nice way in the main window. Scans can also be scheduled. For anyone who likes a simple and clean interface, McAfee is the best choice.

No matter which subscription you select with McAfee, you’re entitled to around-the-clock free support. Unlike some antivirus tools that make you pay for customer support, I was happy to see McAfee’s support is available for all its users. The company’s website has several great sections that give you articles, tutorials, and easy guides on how to fix some of the most common problems. If you need help finding something, you can chat with the company’s virtual assistant, an automated chat that finds specific answers on the company’s website for you. If you need more personal support, you can call the company. I found that the McAfee support team was able to answer all my questions and helped with everything from payment issues to installing specific tools. They even helped me remove a virus I couldn’t clean on my own.

Market Leader

The premium antivirus is placed at $44.99 with $65 off deal where you are entitled to round the clock support. Unlike the few antivirus tools, McAfee doesn't charge you for its extra support. The amount is paid for 365-day support as well. You get a firewall, encryption and monitoring services, password manager and an update checker as well. A single product license enables you to install the antivirus up to 10 devices. It's of great value as it saves money along with easy maintenance of a single license. Users loving the desktop interface will enjoy the mobile application even more as it offers better tools. File protection, battery and performance optimization, theft prevention, and antivirus sweeps.

A Complete Product

The product is called a premium product due to its exceptional performance without compromising on any other features. It protects you from every kind of suspicious activity for up to 10 devices with excellent pricing options. The new interface is easy to use and the antivirus ticks most of the features required by a consumer or an enterprise.
