Confidence to play, work, and enjoy life online
People want to enjoy the benefits of connecting, surfing, and shopping online and don't want to think about security risks. At McAfee we live and breathe digital security, relentlessly working to stay several steps ahead of the bad guys. Every second of every day, we focus on one thing: keeping your digital life safe, so that you can surf, shop and socialize online with confidence.
Protect Against Viruses and Malware
How would you live without your computer? It's how you get the news, share with friends, schedule your life, shop, and bank online. McAfee helps keep your PC safe from viruses, Trojans, spyware, and malware it might pick up from email, USB sticks, removable hard drives, or simply browsing online. With McAfee security software working in real time, security is there when you need it, invisible when you don't.
Complete Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, and Anti-malware - Relentless security software scans and blocks dangerous emails, risky web content, and online threats like viruses, Trojans, spyware, and rootkits.
Real-time Safeguards - Cybercriminals are masters of disguise. McAfee Active Protection™ immediately looks at suspicious material and determines its risk to help keep your computer secure.
Two-way Firewall - Extra layers of Internet security software block bad guys breaking in or sneaking out with your personal information. This traffic cop patrols nonstop to prevent malicious software from gaining access to your PC.
Safe Searching and Shopping - Color-coded icons next to your search results let you know before you click which sites are safe and which may install malicious code, phish for your identity, or send you spam.
Fast Start-Up and Scan Times - We invest in performance to help you enjoy your digital life to the limit--surfing, shopping, and socializing with minimal interruptions.
Digital Data Shredder - Permanently destroy sensitive files to be sure they cannot be retrieved by other users when you donate, recycle, lend or upgrade your PC.
PC Tune-up - Unused applications, cached browser files, and other junk slow down your PC. McAfee QuickClean™ software removes the clutter so your computer can keep up with your digital life.
NEW Exclusive Anti-bot Protection - McAfee now blocks stealthy botnet software by denying its attempts to connect your PC to web addresses that belong to crooks. This extra defense helps prevent your computer from sending out your personal information to Internet crime networks.
NEW USB and Removable Drive Scan - Portable storage devices can be infected in their travels, spreading malicious code from system to system. McAfee scans and blocks this portable payload of viruses, Trojans, and worms before it can wriggle into your PC and your network.
NEW Pre-install Scan - Many people get McAfee protection because they are already infected. To help you salvage your system, McAfee works to remove infections as our software installs.
Block Spam and Dangerous Email
Unwanted email is more than a nuisance that wastes your time. Spam introduces offensive and obnoxious content, plus attachments and links may expose you to viruses and worms. McAfee uses the most advanced spam filters, active analysis, and global threat research to screen out unwanted email.
Anti-Spam - The majority of emails are spam, and much of that spam is dangerous, offensive, or both. McAfee spam filters constantly protect you from exposure to this shady side of the Internet.
Protect Your Family
You would like your kids to be able to research, play, and socialize online. Yet it can be hard for them--and for you--to know which specific sites to trust. McAfee parental controls allow you to set rules based on age, categories, and your preferences so your kids can use the Internet safely. These parental controls let you filter your children's web access, limit online time, and track their usage.
Parental Controls - Free your kids to learn and explore online. McAfee lets parents use age-based rules and adjustable categories to block inappropriate sites and limit online time.
NEW Surfing Report - When you need to know what is happening online, this report shows login times, attempts to access forbidden sites, and total online time. You can also see who is online when.
Protect Your Personal Data
Whether you face loss, theft, or natural disaster, when you least expect it, you may find your most treasured digital files have disappeared. Keep your essential family photos, tax records, and music safe by backing them up to password-protected, encrypted online storage. Your priceless photos and files will be ready and waiting, even when your PC isn't.
1GB Online Backup - Some memories can't be replaced--unless you have them backed up online. Save your most important photos, music, as well as personal and financial files automatically to a password-protected, encrypted safe deposit box in the cloud. You can recover them whenever you need them.
