    Great security at reasonable prices. Plus it has a neat little widget to keep all those necessary tools to keep you safe and informed close at hand! I've heard that it causes a lot of phones to run hot, or use a lot of memory.. I've not had that problem personally. However I've got a newer phone with a lot of RAM and a large drive. Soo, no overheating here. It runs smooth, keeps me safe, and freed up a TON of garbage. Afterwards my phone just seemed like it was fresh from the box again. Happy!

  2. A Google user-avatar

    mcafee It is not scanning my device's files!! Yes I have enabled all the permissions. Whenever I start the scan it does nothing for a minute and then shows scan complete, and no issues found. I have 200+ GB of data in my phone, theres no way it can scan through it in less than a minute. And no, it has not scanned my phone even once so it does not know what files to skip. This is clearly an issue

  3. Michael Lee-avatar

    It was a little confusing at first learning the technique of getting coverage on all of my devices [ 3 ] and learning how it interacts with my devices .... but it is a great benefit to be able to have more than 1 device per subscription. Had some tech difference with online support that really got temper going ... never been so angry without someone whose native language is not English ... I could not understand him clearly and his tech knowledge was not the standard type but poor.

  4. Lee Rierson-avatar

    While I had the service was great, but for whatever reason all of a sudden it doesn't allow me to renew with monthly subscription, I am on a limited income, reason for monthly renewal vs yearly. I am very disappointed in what's going on, & why was i not informed of this, my new card was definately on file.

  5. BARRY VARGUS-avatar

    I actually Pay Money for McAfee & True Key to be on my Laptop & my Mobile. That's what makes it worse that in a Year, McAfee hasn't Fixed "Stay Signed In For 7 Days" in mobile settings. Actually, I've given up! Many problems with McAfee's Mobile app! NEVER AGAIN! BV 03/11/29: Thanks McAfee LLC Everybody I hope to update this review with 5 Stars shortly, it may have been a misunderstanding? BV On 03/11/20 McAfee wrote me & told me they're creating a ticket to look in to Year Old Problem. Nothing!

  6. susan wilson-avatar

    Excellent!...have had it on my 2 desktops for quite awhile but not on my cell... had Lookout and there is no comparison you guys have it all so I called u and got it directly from you with a download link and did the DL and instantly was one happy lady and still am!!! ...loved calling u people too as it made me feel terrific to purchase from a live human being...BIG SMILES!!!

  7. Matt Ad-avatar

    I love it. It really is one of the best it runs in the background that's good. And the cleaning of the unused Data is not really annoying and it really works. Well basically all the free features are good. And the antivirus scanner is good

  8. Zegota Shalom-avatar

    This program is right up there with Norton and will automatically protects you online, and guuard you from malwaires. (sp). It has been almost three months now, since installing on my android phone and Dell Desktop. I am very pleased with the protection and how it can protects other devices you may have. No problem with this program, or use of memory. I can highly recommend this security.

  9. Karen-avatar

    Like the ease of use and having battery boost, memory clean etc in one app! But where is the Safe Connect VPN? I have VPN on my desktop, but can't locate on my phone....I purchased the McAfee Pro plan and have auto renew subscription. I purchased this plan because of the VPN. 3/19/20. Downloaded Safe Connect--Thank You! It does not play nice with my credit union app, Facebook or some of my store apps. I purchased McAfee with Safe Connect specifically for these apps. Still giving 4 stars.

  10. Concerned 44-avatar

    I have coverage for 3 devices from McAfee. The only one I have in use is protection for my computer. McAfee sent me an activation code for the other 2 devices, one of which I am trying to install on my tablet. I can't easily find a place to enter my activation code. Nothing happens when I click on Download! What can I do?

  11. Ricky Whitaker-avatar

    Awsome! Lower response to (mirror): There is a difference between mirroring and backups... McAfee provides data protection by backing up your "chosen" items . MIRRORING WOULD eat your smartphones lunch, and slow your device to no response. Plus you would have to have a identical target to mirror to. McAfee does what is practical yet safe. (Backup or RAID 0 - STANDARD BACKUP)... Mirroring is typically a Network System function to ensure no downtime in Network operations .

  12. Luis Mercado-avatar

    I downloaded to lock some apps but most of the time when i tried to open a lock app ,,type my password and it takes me back over to type my password over and over,,,,password is correct because it works sometimes ,,, not good if you need to open an app quickly (Update) 3/15/20,,,The lock app feature for some reason is working fine now

  13. Cathy Porter-avatar

    FINALLY! I have figured out how to install or upgrade to subscription. So let's see how McAfee mobile compares to PC model. Paid subscription PC and mobile numerous attempts to upgrade mobile protection for my phone will not work. So I'm stuck with free after paying for protection. I will not advance my star opinion until this problem is rectified.

  14. Randy Cox-avatar

    Over the months I've come to trust McAfee although I always double check to make sure the VPN comes on when I'm away from home, it does. Really nice to not have to worry about security and privacy... Although I always double check! 😉 Well worth the eleven bucks a month to me. Thanks Months later, the VPN doesn't come on automatically I have to go to the app and do it manually.

  15. Denis Soloviev-avatar

    App is pretty good, no problems, ive been subscribed to the Pro version for the last 6 months, 2.99 is more than affordable. But today I got an email saying the price is going up from 2.99 to 11.99. Thats right, the price QUADRUPLED. Sorry but there's absolutely no way Im paying 150 dollars a year for this. Very disappointed!!!

  16. Vidyasha N-avatar

    Tried to renew for a product but was billed for another more expensive product! Total nonsense of a customer support, the phone number does not work nor the online assisant and neither the multiple tickets logged have been considered. Refund is supposed to be done within 30 days which is not gonna happen here. Be assured McAfee this is the last time you've conned me! Gonna switch for another more ethicl anti-virus software.

    I had downloaded mcAfee with my subscription in January.20 it disappeared completely yesterday from my phone still OK on computer. I reviewed my a/c it showed "2" phones and computer, I called service, notified long wait "jason " replied and said he must check my computer showed me warnings CLSID, then said I needed a better version "$199-500 saw a company in California. Hung up immediately knew I was scammed. Cannot reach you today none of my numbers work and I am afraid now

  18. Max Mayrand-avatar

    Since last update this app is draining my battery like crazy even when my phone is inactive. I always liked this app and all of it's features. Edit: The reset didn't work for me, but i uninstalled it, which i had to search how to because it didn't let me. Then i reinstalled, it seems for now at least, it is back to normal battery usage. Don't know why it bugged like this, but it is a great app. Gave back my 5 stars rating ***** :)

  19. Evelyn Wright-avatar

    I had installed McAfee mobile security with vpn app. One day when scanning i find it says i have a virus (malware) under this app. I try to resolve it , even uninstall it , only for it to say i have to deactivate because of device administator. It won't allow me to do this. It will go through the act of uninstalling only to still be there. Now i'm sorry i installed this app. I even sent message to your support team! E. W.

    While the threat scanning may be decent, the location service of the other devices under my license is absolutely the worst. It never seems to function as advertised; when I decide to locate a 2nd device under my license, it reverts to the 1st device. It wastes more time than the app is worth. Seriously folks, look for a different app to totally protect your investment. Robert Krecker, CPP Board Certified in Security Management

    Antivirus is getting disabled every half an hour and I have to go to accessibility to restart it. Battery saving option is also disabled and I have enabled it to run in the background, still it's getting disabled. Scanning for virus by it, plus by Google play protect, is not showing any virus activity. Requesting you to look into problem. Edit : initiated contact as per your suggestion

    Dear Mr McAfee, Your Support Team is in need of serious training. I refuse to waste anymore time attempting to get issues resolved. Simply test this in your LAB to determine issues. App lock needs to be fixed. Android Samsung s8+. When enter 6 digit code it requires 3-4 times before working. My past experience calling and or chatting with McAfee is a very long waste of time as the agents are not trained well enough to solve issues. So I will not be wasting more time on this. Please have your development team look into bugs.

  23. othababy-avatar

    I love McAfee. It protects, cleans, boosts memory, and boosts my battery power. Thats just the tip of iceberg of what it does. And price is reasonable. Have been a user for many yrs. Thank you McAfee 😊

  24. Bob Wells-avatar

    If you are purchasing this app after reading that it has a VPN as advertised, don't do it because it's false advertising and you need to purchase another app for the VPN. They should not be allowed to have WIFI VPN Guard in the description for this app and should have that removed. The VPN was the main reason I purchased this app and by the time I found out it was too late. Yes I'm aware now that I have to purchase the "Plus" feature but it does not say that in the app description..

  25. Devious Dan-avatar

    Does its job. I have McAfee on all my devices that use an internet connection, and I've never had a problem, I enjoy the mobile app because it allows me to delete unwanted/unused files easily and helps keep the memory usage down. Scans are quick and give me confidence my phone is virus/spyware free.

  26. Tairo-avatar

    Works great though I have issues with the VPN not connecting 1/10 times. The VPN is trying to connect but displays error after some time. (Edit: I was able to solve the issue somewhat after contacting support, VPN works perfectly for Wifi but doesn't work 1/10 times for mobile data).

  27. Carmen Thacker-avatar

    I really like the app overall , it really does help my device . What I would add to the app itself is the options for small scan, full scan . And maybe the battery performance scanner I believe it's called? But other than those I love this app.

    It's fantastic I feel like I rest easy knowing this perfection is here. And the benefit the won me over is the unlimited devices. I have been a long time customer of Norton's and felt they have become too expensive for me now so I thought I would try McAfee.

  29. Nieners 9-avatar

    I used to think very highly of but since getting a new phone and updating this app my homepage widget will not stay on the homepage I have to keep going back into settings and even though it says that it's on I have to keep turning it off and turn it back on for it to show up on my home screen again only for like a couple minuteskind of frustrating to have to go through a bunch of hassle every time I want to clean it instead of just being able to use my widget quickly.

    This app is so good that I've been using it on ALL of my devices. I purchased a brand new Chrome Book, so I'll give you one guess what I did as soon as I got home... Yep!, you guessed right. If you don't have this app Already' then get as soon as is possible. And remember... IT'S FREE !!!

  31. yossrabechir-avatar

    It has blocked unsafe sites and threats. A previous virus protection software allowed a virus to infect my computer and it cost me $400 to clean the system without losing data or licensed software. McAfee was recommended and have been using it for more than 5 years with no incident.

  32. Danielle Berry-avatar

    Despite having paid a subscription this app keeps telling me I have a trial version & to pay to upgrade. Despite following the link and instructions in my email this has occurred, not was there a place to enter my activation code on install with no apparent way to rectify this. I've seen in another review the advice to sign out & sign back in however the option at the bottom of the menu list is not to sign out but to uninstall. For such a large and well known company this is disappointing.

  33. Chandran KM-avatar

    Quite good. The big problem is with the icons of the bookmarked links in the web browser. Once I run the virus scan, all the 500to600 icons of the bookmarked links disappear or get changed to something else.

  34. Billy Davis-avatar

    When Intel bought McAfee in 1999 they went straight to # 1 (Best) antivirus software engineer for computers and now they took it mobile for the # 1 software for smartphones. I would like to say keep up the great work and Thank you for protecting my PC and phone.(and other gadgets to come). Thxs McAfee .

  35. Teresa Bhora-avatar

    Phone tech support took an hour with no results ( a lot of repeating was necessary because overseas). Just reinstalled at least 3 times. Then was referred to another team, to call me within a 2 hour time frame the next day. I did receive a call from another country with a four digit phone number. Not knowing if it was spam or not I didn't answer. But they left a voicemail and an email to try again. It is a subscription issue, not a technical issue with no straight answer- only the runaround.

    I did have AT&T Security on my phone but there was an issue with the app I think someone was trying to hack into my phone. I uninstalled AT&T Security and installed Mcafee Security I haven't had any issues so far! Thank You Mcafee developers for making my phone and Desktop secure!! If I could give 6 stars I would.

  38. Wendy Robinson-avatar

    I'm a subscriber to Mcafee Livesafe. Adding my phone to my account entails sending an email to my phone which has a download link. It downloads this app with no obvious way of signing in so I get ads and the phone doesn't show up on my account. Have told Mcafee but no response. Very poor.

  39. Rob Hoerntlein-avatar

    This does many useful things in addition to security, including memory optimization. One thing that makes me wonder somewhat is that it doesn't update automatically. It marks some of the preinstalled apps as viruses, then offers to remove them.

  40. Kevin Chapman-avatar

    Uninstalled immediately I copied and pasted my activation number right from my email. Of course it didn't work. I Don't have the patience to fool around and jump through hoops. PS AVG worked first time

  41. Anna Petersen-avatar

    App sends text messages to my phone and knowing how long we have coverage left and despite being told by message that my subscription has expired. I purchased it in Sept 2018 for 2 yr & still has time left. Tried calling customer service and spoke with a young man that didn't understand anything I was explaining to him.

    This new McAfee software is the best yet. I have switched programs over the years, but I always come back to McAfee. First rate Anti-Virus, Spyware and all around protection on the market. I recommend it to everyone who is serious about protecting their data.

  43. Randy Bristow-avatar

    One of the highest ratings in AV-Test year after year. No big frills here, just outstanding phone protection. If you buy a pretty car with a bad engine... You just have a pretty car that doesn't run! I love McAfee because it works and is rated to work very well. Great phone protection here.

  44. Starr Perkins-avatar

    Keeps overloading my phone systems causing my phone to constantly overheat , kills my battery life and causes my phone to crash. I let a free app that never ga e me anypronkems to a paid service. I think I'm going back to the other app.

    Howany people are paying for a subscription but dont use their computer.... I am one of those checked my email this morning and you took out my auto renewal.... welll I havnt had a computer turned on for about 2 years.... do you not do any proactive customer service? Or do you just let people waste their money. Canceling my subscription is not as easy as it sounds. There should be a large button on the account page that states CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION. but nah we want to be sceevy!

    So Far so good 👍 I have Total Protection installed on 2 Android phones, and my Laptop. I have not received any email scams and although scammer calls still call me, I have not had any negative incidents of any devices. Thank you McAfee! A Much better experience enjoying my time on the phone and on my laptop!

    When Intel bought McAfee in 1999 they went straight to # 1 (Best) antivirus software engineer for computers and now they took it mobile for the # 1 software for smartphones. I would like to say keep up the great work and Thank you for protecting my PC and phone.(and other gadgets to come). Thxs McAfee (dad's phone).

    The app warns us if we download malicious files. I have pro subscription which protects my laptop.Whenever i login into mcafee mobile with the same account,it says 'free' in the subscription.Why cant i get pro on my mobile.Also the app takes a lot of time to open.Sometimes it does not even open.

  49. darren elkin-avatar

    Can someone tell me how the cost of this app is going up to 119.99 from 24.99 when I have to renew in December 2020? Is it gold, did the owner of McAfee get a divorce and need more money? This is highway robbery, please explain how one can justify this going up this much?

    Worst ; useless soft ; # I buy this product ; after use 4 to 5 month is bad experience # " After 4 to day mobile problem after unstilll this soft then mobile is work fine.... Today face sim not detect and mobile hang # rest mobile is ok ; this soft is useless not scan virus, and also hang problem..... Don't buy this soft.. Experience so bad

  51. Nick Rowsell-avatar

    Great app given it's free. Does the virus checking and also has a great app killer (memory booster) on the dashboard. Not had any issues. Ads not too intrusive.

  52. joseph Wachira-avatar

    Good stuff 👍. Unfortunately, safe web does not cover duckduckgo browser. The VPN is not inbuilt in the app also. A firewall integration would also be a nice thing.

  53. Thomas Corwin-avatar

    Ive used mcafee at home for yrs and they have always alliminated any and all threats and virusus. Even when i used them on a friends computer that had 119 virusus on it it took 2 days but when i gave it baxk to him vurus free he became a mcafee subscriber then and there. Why would i choose any thing else. Thank u mcafee

  54. kil dem ol-avatar

    Accidentally installed a malware from unsecured sources. All of the anti-virus on android, didn't detect it at all. However, this Mcafee did detect the unwanted malware. Glad this anti-virus is more handy than the others.

    Would be nice if the cancel button on the login screen wasn't directly under the fingerprint scanner on a Samsung note 10+. Also when in landscape and it tries to ask for pin or fingerprint it cancels the operation because it's in landscape. Have to reopen the secured app in portrait to unlock.

    I have a paid subscription and the latest updated McAfee app but I cannot connect to VPN. In fact, there is no VPN at all, no option for wifi guard VPN. There might be some bug in the app. Needs to fix bug.....also no ad blocking at all

  59. Sanchay-avatar

    this app is awful. i bought the pro version and I'm extremely disappointed. it freezes and won't even start. the app lock function is completely useless and pops up every 30 seconds. the developers did a pathetic job and clearly needs to work on it.

  60. Bobby Johnsen-avatar

    So far so good! found 3 viruses on the first scan and even gave information on what the virus does! Impressed so far since the last 4 "big name" android Antivirus apps never caught these viruses after multiple scans.

  61. Royal Princess-avatar

    Wonderful app, it wasn't working properly but they fixed the issues and now it's working like a champ.

  62. Lee Maddox-avatar

    Draining battery. This app recently started draining the battery overnight. Need to look for another option. Resetting seems to have resolved the problem. Thanks

  63. Terri Gore-avatar

    So far this is a great App to help keep my Android safe and secure. When it fails to keep doing the job I expect it to I will get rid of it!! Hopefully it won't have any issues.

  64. Nick Vaughan-avatar

    As always with these apps it feels more like a protection racket than supportive antivirus software. Would be nice to have an annual, rather than monthly, plan to reduce the frequency of the pain of paying.

  65. A Google user-avatar

    McAfee is still Number One in security for our cells, tablets and computer! We are using the full program and feel much more secure. Highly recommend! Dated March 10 , 2020

    This app was working great. But since new update 18 hours ago it is eating my battery life like no tomorrow. Device management indicated 85% usage from McAfee since latest update. I'm tempted to uninstall.

    App is ok. Company idk shady, aI tried the app for 30 days free and decided it wasn't for me they charged me the $79.99, even though canceled the service. They wouldn't give me a credit.. back in April I decided since I already paid for yearly subscription which wasn't going to cancel till next year 2020. I rejoined using original key I purchased since pd 4. Months later found 3x $9.99 monthly fees subscription for vpn, I already had my ExpressVpn 4yrs now $99/yr the only 1 I TRUST!!

  68. Julie Wood-avatar

    Very easy to install and set up. I can get to the app easily and choose what I want anytime. Best of all, this app was included in my subscription at no extra cost. Thank you.

  69. abrazzaq ars-avatar

    Excellent protection application that monitors my devices and eliminates threats immediately. Plus it is great for extending the battery and cleaning the memory.

  70. Ruth Stoner-avatar

    I'm tying to delete this app so that I can install the new Mcafee software, however it won't let me delete it or deactivate it, which is blooming annoying. It shouldn't be this difficult!

  71. Justin-avatar

    Works great and keeps all my info safe. The anti theft is cool too. sos/lock phone option sends the location of your device if it gets stolen.

  72. Brit Whit-avatar

    It gives plenty of updates. It's not annoying when shows pop ups of asking permission. Basically a trustworthy app. Worth paying for

    Its a very good app that keeps your devices and information safe, also keeps viruses and trojan, and other types of harmful malware off your devices, so mcafee keeps you safe at all times.

  76. Calvin Vogel-avatar

    This has been a great app. It's easy to use and very reliable. I'm curious as to whether I still need the McAfee safe connect VPN app.

  77. Sharon Miller-avatar

    So far this is a great app. Easy to set up and user friendly. Been using it now for a while. Easy to use seems good. Lov that it has only a couple of ads.

    I've already given a rating but i'm still impressed with this mob - sec - app, it rely keeps my phone safe & clean... I recommend this app to anyone with a Samsung or apple mobile, fyi they came 2nd in 2017 for best mobile security service & Taylor too 82 %of the worlds largest banks primary security...

  81. Frank Lawson-avatar

    Trying to renew the subscription is impossible. No guidance and haven't managed to renew it, so will probably uninstall it when subscription expires. Don't waste your money on this app.

  82. Paul Maguire-avatar

    Top security, great layout so you can easily navigate your way through options. Perfect.

    Slightly defective - has an issue where if you allow it to make system changes it stops the main speaker from working 90% of the time on the Samsung Note 10+

  84. Willow Snow-avatar

    So far it's been very handy, but I cant seem to get the vpn to work? I did select the pro subscription, but I cant seem to find the information to activate the vpn on the mobile app. Is it only available to activate via a desktop version?

    Features removed from the app. Restart PIN and basic features like PIN required after exit from aeroplane mode was removed after I paid for the full features. Feel cheated. Dear McAfee, I'm going for Kaspersky next time.
