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.
Cybercriminals are masters of disguise. McAfee Active Protection™ immediately looks at suspicious material and determines its risk to help keep your computer secure.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
