“Great Product, have used this for years!”

OverallFeel protected on and offline. Runs in the background and alerts you whenever issues are found. Great product to invest in.
ProsGreat product that works efficiently, and effectively. Used this product for years and runs seamlessly without and hassles in the background. I would suggest try a free version and you will definitely purchase after trial. Used at home and at work.
ConsDon't really have cons, except you don't get full features for product unless you purchase but that is expected for most free trials.

“The most reliable antivirus”

OverallIn general terms, if you have the money to license the product, it is highly recommended for medium and large companies.
ProsIt is an antivirus that I have known for many years and it makes me feel safe, both at home and in the companies I have worked with. It just gives me a lot of confidence
ConsSometimes I feel that the computer, depending on the processor and memory, gets a bit slow, also the price is a bit high for small businesses.

“Thorough and reliable ”

OverallSecurity and peace of mind.
ProsThe thing that I like the most about this service is that it is simple to use and has been very reliable. I use this on my work computer and have not had any problems with viruses in 4 years.
ConsThey do tend to like to up-sell a lot. Which is understandable, but I do think that it is overboard that it shows an error message like something is wrong, but really they just want me to purchase something.

“The software is functional, versatile, and performed as expected.”

ProsIt performed exactly as expected, there are many customizable options, and I was able to apply the antivirus to multiple devices. I was charged an annual renewal fee this year, however I wasn't prepared and I contacted customer service and they refunded me immediately and offered a 6 month subscription instead of a year. It was a very pleasant experience.

“It complies with all the functions of a normal antivirus and much more.”

ProsI used it by chance because my computer has it incorporated and when using it I am very satisfied with this antivirus, what I like the most is that when I detect a virus it does not erase the documents.
ConsIt has worked quite well so far, the only drawback I have observed is that it is a bit heavy, otherwise I have no complaints.

“Excellent protections from viruses and malware”

OverallThis is a solid computer security system that won't let you down when a threat is made. I will repurchase from the original store I bought this, as it was less expensive than the advertisements I receive directly from McAfee.
ProsI purchased this software a year ago at the recommendation of a sales agent. It was affordable and effective. I have not had any issues with security and it did a great job of alerting me to any potential threats.
ConsQuite a bit of advertising to repurchase when you are near expiration

“If you want to be safe, get this software, stop looking around”

ProsVery easy to set up. Does that promises. Some other antivirus put you pc very slow, this one continues protecting without affecting your PCs performance.
ConsA good software cost, this one is no the exception. There are some other antivirus out there that handle a better price, but this one is worth for its price.

“McAfee security is not so great”

OverallMcAfee security is okay for light internet data users and not for heavy users as they are less prone to virus attacks.
ProsMcAfee security is very easy to set up without any complication, even a computer learner can run the set up.
ConsMcAfee security doesn't seem to see certain computer virus and is seen as a virus when run be another spyware application.

“Protects my office computers.”

ProsIt's there and it does it's job. Before we had it we got a virus and spent a lot of money to fix the issue. Customizable.
ConsSome programs require you to turn off the fire wall in order for the program to operate properly, and it's difficult to know at first what is blocking the program from working.

“Great software tool!”

ProsMcAfee came with my laptop and has been helping ever since. The scans help my computer be protected from viruses and I enjoy get the notifications on updates and systems that help.
ConsThe scans can slow my computer down and take awhile to be preformed. The Internet goes slower due to this

ProsExcellent antivirus that keeps my computer free of malware and viruses, the system is very reliable, easy to configure and use.
ConsI have only used the free version and it has been very good, I imagine that among the plans offered is better and greater its functionality, specifically so far I have no bad experience.

“A Tad Irritating.”

OverallMcAfee can get things done if you are able to work through the program without getting frustrated, however I am unlikely to recommend it to anyone due to the awful experiences it has lead me through.
ProsI like how the software protects ones assets, allows one to run protective services and gives offers and options to utilize different ranges or parts of products (full membership or free versions).
ConsI absolutely detest how the McAfee software has countless pop ups, invasive notifications, constant redirects and sometimes unresponsive pop up options. I cannot stress enough how annoying the software can be for a beginning user, even helping someone with the software is infuriating. McAfee software, including the antivirus service was the single reason I moved to Norton... The UI of the software and irritating nature of its 'help and support' functionality just was not easy to work with or get through. I even had difficulties and the above mentioned issues with pop ups and unresponsive buttons when uninstalling the software.

“Bad!”

ProsI dont have a lot of good coments to do on this software other than the fact that it kind of easy to use...
ConsThere is a lot of cons but to give one example, one time we had a client that had a lot of trouble with his computer, we scaned the computer with mcafee but it didnt found anything (not even with the active protection), so we scanned with a free software (Malwairebytes) and found a ton of malwair and stuff...

“Great encryption and decryption software to manage the company's data.”

Pros1. The UI is very superb. The drag and drop feature helps easily encrypt and decrypt the data. 2. The security software is super fast and it does not affect the computers performance at any cost.
Cons1. It seems bit costly when compared to the other similar software. 2. The notifications to upgrade is bit annoying. It shows every time when I switch on the computer.

“McAfee is the best for all Security on the web”

ProsAs we do e-commerce in this day and age for everything, we had to go with McAfee as it's always secure and always alerting us if anything the Potential Threat. Before we had it we were falling victim to many viruses and having to clean and scrub our system on a monthly basis.
ConsI can be a little bit more costly than other options but it's definitely been proven out to be the best.

“It's a great software to protect and transfer the company data outside the network. Especially when ”

Pros1. Its easy to use single interface helps to transfer data securely between multiple places, mainly for multiple offices. 2. The configuration is so simple. 3. The Security features and the encryption features are one of the best, which secures the business data with high grade encryption.
Cons1. They don't support for MacOS Server version. Currently only supports Windows NT servers and Linux variants. 2. It seems bit higher price for small business. They don't have pricing for small business people.

“Easy and Universally Recognized Increase to Web Security”

Pros1) With Wix.com, you can easily connect McAfee to your website. Automatically they will do a system check of how secure your website it, and put in layers of security. 2) McAfee does an excellent job communicating what their service provides, and has excellent answers online if you want more information on beefing up your security.
Cons1) There aren't any cons I've run into with McAffee.

“It has remarkable features in terms of its function, it is one of the most popular antivirus”

OverallThe program has a very good security, since it makes copies of the most important files of the system and stores them in a secure way. Like any good antivirus, it has a tool for Internet updates.
ProsIt consumes few resources, continuous checking, simple and effective in its handling, large amount of detected viruses, it does not take away almost resources
ConsPeriodicity updates, some viruses escape, slows down a bit the Internet browsing, is not updated very frequently

“Customer Review”

OverallSatisfying but overall its not a compact software which can get proper security.
ProsMcAfee is one of the most popular global open source security base software. It 's simple user friendly software where any kind of user easily use this software. Easy to download and also easy to get crack version of this software. We can easily found malicious virus or spam by using this software.
ConsThe main cons of this software is , while it is open source software , when we download some of utility software e:g Adobe Reader , we also need to download McAfee software which is totally unwanted.
