McAfee Antivirus Review

Mcafee antivirus is an anti-virus suite that includes a password manager, VPN, and file shredder. Its antivirus software was able to perform well in independent testing however, it fell short of the top performers for some categories such as blocking all threats or preventing false positives. It is a comprehensive set of other features, though, making it one of the best value choices.

For instance the Safe browsing feature employs a color system to indicate whether links are safe or not. If a hyperlink is not safe, it will be flagged as dangerous and warned you against clicking on it. McAfee’s shredder is an additional useful feature that can safely destroy files according to the level of security set. The default settings erase all trash files as well as temporary Internet files. However, you can customize which folders are destroyed.

McAfee also monitors your online behavior to identify your patterns. If it finds any pattern that suggests you’re in danger of being attacked by ransomware, it will alert you and create encrypted copies of your files. The company also examines your computer for suspicious processes, and ensures that they’re not running in the background and collecting information that could be used to harm you.
