Mcafee Antivirus comes with a security package that comes with a VPN, password manager, and a file shredder. The antivirus software performed well in independent tests, but it fell short of the top performers for certain categories, such as blocking all threats or preventing false positives. It offers a broad array of other features, though, making it one of the most cost-effective options.

For example the Safe browsing feature uses a color system to determine whether a link is safe or not. If a website does not meet the requirements and is flagged as dangerous. You are warned to avoid clicking on that link. McAfee’s shredder can be a helpful feature that secures the destruction of files based on the degree of security set. The default settings delete all trash files and temporary Internet files. However you can choose which folders are destroyed.

McAfee also monitors your online behavior to determine your patterns. It will notify you when it notices patterns that suggest you’re about to be attacked with ransomware and create protected copies. The company monitors your computer to ensure that suspicious processes are not running in the background, gathering information and threatening you.

McAfee Total Protection offers an in-app support feature that can assist you with all kinds of problems. If you would like to speak with a customer service rep you will be directed to their website. You’ll need fill out a form that includes your name, number email address, and a description of the issue.
