  • McAfee is the best !

    By Old Man Mitch
    Time and time again my computer friend who handles all my systems iPads iPhones laptops always tells me thatMcAfee is doing its job… that’s going on six years now or longer… I have shared this information with a lot of people over the years and I hope that this is helped boost your business.. Because I truly have been extremely lucky as there were a few close calls and bogus attempts..McAfee pulled through every time !! Hats off !!!!
  • NO NO NO!!

    By Debb Qa
    I have gone through at least 10 IPhones in the last 12 months. All of them XSMax, 10, 11, etc. paid cash, thousands of dollars and the same issues over and over again. Tmobile-I ended up with my 2nd XSMax “compromised” per Apple Support-this Mc Afee app is completely USELESS. I had the Mc Afee on at least 7 of the devices and In a nutshell, because I can go on for days, I lost access to EVERYTHING the Mc Afee app doesn’t safely store anything. Whoever or whatever( bot, etc) who knows who cares at this point damage has been done-remotely accessed my MCAFEE ACCOUNT and wiped my phone right in front of my eyes, after taking what it wanted. Very disturbing. I also had fraud issues on my device and lost access to all my Google accounts, social media, PayPal, etc. STILL LOCKED OUT OVER 1 YEAR LATER!! all because a bad Apple push certificate was somehow placed on my Samsung computer that I backed my IPhones up to using ITunes. BE CAREFUL AND CHECK THE CERTIFICATES!! On your windows devices, Samsung devices, Apple devices etc. even Mozilla :) cheers!

    Like so many of the negative reviews on here, I experienced the most frustrating experience and list a day trying to sign onto this app after ordering it ftt et km T-Mobile to go with my new iPhone. When I went to register on the app using my current Email address with T-Mobile, McAffee told me “that Email is already registered,” but would not accept any of five different Email addresses I have. Finally contacted TM and after 2 hrs and 5 people was connected with McAffee as TM just sells the app but doesn’t service it. After an hour on hold with McAfee, was told an unused laptop had been registered with the same Email address, and that the unused McAffee act would have to be cancelled before I could register my TM iPhone. But after an hour on hold was disconnected and finally canceled the McAffee security with TM as can’t waste any more time dealing with a broken security app that neither the seller or provider will service.
  • Awful Awful

    By sour8apple
    I have had my Gmail, Yahoo,Netflix,Hulu,Facebook and PlayStation Network accounts hacked and stolen! I have been through so many phones and services in the last month and switched to T-Mobile got a iPhone se and thought by getting McAfee I could finally get things back to normal.. How I was soooo wrong!! I have had so much trouble with my ID portal and me losing my safe web browser and have had this app only for a month now and have had nothing but trouble. Seems like someone else is using my “McAfee” other then me and customer support is just as horrible. I would not recommend this to no one to use or even think about using. T-Mobile should be ashamed for even associating there name with McAwful aka McAfee. DONT INSTALL THIS GARBAGE!! HORRIBLE and NO HELP WHATSOEVER!! I would give it a tenth of a star if I could! T-Mobile get rid of this trash!!
  • Inconsistently drops VPN and does not reconnect

    By Beer_zaygy
    Almost every time I use this app the VPN loses its connection. When this happens, nothing works when using a cellular connection on my phone until I shut off the vpn. For example, if use my phone while driving, and I want to use google maps , none of the maps load. The phone appears to be loading the map, but nothing happens. If I go to the gym and use YMCA app, I can’t get my membership card to load. Apple Pay does not work at checkout. Basically any app that requires a cellular connection, does not connect because the vpn is attempting to connect first. I sit there waiting for it to load. I have to go into settings and turn off the VPN manually. Then all my applications work immediately. Today I removed the vpn in settings and now I have no problems.
  • WiFi gaurd

    By honest unbiased reviewer
    I have multiple apps that walk you thru the process of what to do and how to do if there’s a unsecured open network. McAfee Security will scan and let me know I’m on a unsecured network suggesting to disconnect or put a WiFi gaurd up. I’ve written asking how to put a WiFi gaurd up and never got a response. The app doesn’t show a WiFi gaurd option or how to put a WiFi gaurd up that I could find. Maybe I’m missing something here but if it’s such a security issue I would think they would make it easier to activate. I give the app rating 2 stars because of this issue. Of all apps I’ve tried. I would suggest Norton’s lock life because they also provide a firewall. Hope this info helps others when making a decision.
  • Horrible Service

    By Sharrkiesha
    I am literally new to this app. The service comes with my cell phone subscription and I pay to use it. I downloaded the app so that I could utilize their services. Guys I thought I would be impressed but I was not. The location services to locate a device was inaccurate. The Safe Mobil Browsing option would not stay enabled & last but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, customer service however nice was in way ANY HELP. I emailed support & it’s only an AUTOMATED RESPONSE. The CS I spoke with stated she could not help me due to the lines not being able to transfer me to the proper department. Now GUYS we ALL are in a PANDEMIC I personally DO NOT & CAN NOT afford to waste money. I can tell you personally I will NOT be keeping this service... So my review, HARD PASS. Don’t waste the download time...
  • Review on the scan on my IPhone.

    By cacioppo67
    I am very satisfied with the security that Mac free provides my I phone. I have no worries because I know it will keep my phone safe and if I should lose it that it will be found. It would be very crazy not to have this on your from for your protection of your device and protection from all the hackers who love to steal your information. Thank you for the security you provide your customers.

    By tumble4weed
    Great and easy to use..However I keep having problems with my switch getting turn off on my safe web browser and can’t turn it back on once it gets turn off. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app every time this happens. However I have been having problems with someone hacking in my phone for the past 4 weeks now. Please Mcafee help me resolve this and fix the issue at hand. I would be more then happy to give a 5 plus plus review. Thank you.
