Completely Useless!!!!
by KeiFL74 on 2019/09/15 11:03
09/15/19 Update to my previous post that some how went missing or deleted. While updating the app, the download had been taking an extremely long time. So again I open the app and turned off the Safe Web VPN and then the app was able to upgrade. So obviously the upgrade didn’t fix the issue!! 08/06/19 The new updated Safe Web VPN is really slowing down my phone and causing sites that I normally visit to time out or just never open. My service before the update was super fast 5G. I end up turning off the safe Web VPN, and my phone returned to normal. Please fix the issue this new update is causing, the previous version was worked great. The Safe Web VPN is one of the reasons I went from Webroot to Mcafee, now the service is useless and doesn’t work.
Cheap Free App

There are hackers on my phone number and the WiFi is not safe. This app is basically useless because the people who are on my accounts should have been arrested by FBI long ago! On this date of all dates to have to listen to Bleed through talking from some hidden thieves in the USA, it really saddens me, we don’t have any security over the World Wide Web! It’s all a facade! Thanks

i’m in the hospital and I’m using the guest Internet and McAfee told me when it was not safe and advise me to turn cell phone off. I turned it off immediately.I turned cell on later and mcafee told me I had a threat and then I get this message so I’m glad to know that you’re watching and seeing what I can’t see. Being here in the hospital I have enough problems so thanks McAfee for taking care of this problem

Nice iPhone app that does what it says
by WHHJR on 2019/09/10 22:05
This is a well designed app that has a nice look and feel to it, easy to navigate and enough features to make it a worthwhile application to have on your iPhone. No advertising and just an overall low maintenance app that you will forget is installed on your phone until you need it. Some handy features like the Vault where you can “hide” pictures, documents or phone numbers. It does not offer a backup for your phone but does have the ability to encrypt the file you would include in a backup, a feature where it can track a lost iPhone, sound an alarm to help you locate a lost misplaced phone and a neat feature where once the phone battery is critically low, the app sends up to the McAfee Website a location so that way if the battery does die and you have misplaced your iPhone then it could potentially have the last location you may have left the phone. Best of all its free

McAfee Security
by sensei Leonard on 2019/09/09 23:48
McAfee is awesome. I’m disabled and can’t afford their (pay) better security app. But they are so good that they have this free one and it still covers a lot of things. Every one should use McAfee Security. I’ll get the better one as soon as I can. But THANKS McAfee for still caring enough to still provide as much as you do for free.

by Sarbear.A on 2019/09/04 21:12
Hi so I have had this app for a wile now and it seems to work well but I think that the 4 things it’s supposed to protect you from should all be free and I understand not EVERY thing can be free but some people may not have money for the protection they need.... besides that I accidentally clicked on a virus app and did not know and quickly got off I got on this app and checked if I was ok but resized it only does WiFi and contacts also pics the rest you have to pay... all I’m requesting is that you could make all four free because now I’m worried that I have a virus. Y’all are the only app that I trust to help me all the others are fake .

I. Am. So. Frustrated. Horrible app won’t let me use either feature from the app - even though I upgraded TWICE to premium & paid TWICE. Lousy customer service doesn’t follow through & just keeps referring me to others. I don’t recommend any more.
Could offer better services.
by 1 true person on 2019/09/03 20:28
Even though it’s free I feel it should be a little better service like better scanning and web protection.
Garbage
by El Carim on 2019/09/03 19:10
The Mobile Security App crashed my brand new iPad Air 3rd Generation. The problem is McAfee’s use of a VPN that corrupts the Apple ID security protocol. DO NOT TRUST THIS APP.
Incompetent and worst Technical Support
by Subcoms on 2019/09/03 14:15
I purchased a year subscription of plus expiring in 2020. It was working then it reverted back to a free account without all the plus features. I would give this zero stars if possible. It’s been over six weeks and the issue is still not resolved. It’s by far the worst technical and customer support from a company that is supposedly a leader in internet security.

Errors regarding software
by seaatle slew on 2019/08/30 15:48
My iOS Software is up to date and mcaffee keeps insisting it isn’t. So why should I trust any notification?
Can’t control background scan or request Signature updates
by cf67polv5 on 2019/08/30 15:14
App Settings have no background scan control. After executing an on demand scan there is, in my opinion no reason for additional background scans especially when the device hasn’t even been in use. If it had background scan controls it would be appreciated. I shut off background activity in iOS and scanner settings but it runs background scans anyway. A waste of battery charge. Also there seems to be no way to request a manual. virus signature update. If it had these capabilities I’d give it 5 stars but without some user control I can only give it 2.
Great way to stay safe

safe web surfing?
by challenged in Georgia on 2019/08/28 10:27
I was under the impression that a VPN allowed you to use public wi-fi and your information would be kept hidden. Several times, I have gotten a message saying the site is unsecured and to get off immediately. Is this not what the VPN is supposed to protect me from? Just telling me to leave the connection kind of defeats the purpose. Is there something I don’t understand? I do like the scans it does of my phone security.

by 2Disires on 2019/08/26 09:03
Not sure why McAfee doesn’t store the photos, or why they don’t have a button to select all or scroll to select. Instead we have to click one by one. I have to many photos for that! Does this mean are photos aren’t safe or guaranteed anything besides storage?

by Henry3436 on 2019/08/22 03:45
the only “protection” this app provides is making sure my phone is updating and continuously telling me to disconnect from a wifi because it has no password. I personally hate the wifi protection since it only uses your hardware id, so if i connect to a wifi system that is in an airport, school, or some similar type of wifi, it will forget my id, and that renders the “trust wifi ” useless. But the computer software is much better, so i give 2 stars.
Cool

What Kind of Security Is This?
by Tethered to home on 2019/08/14 16:46
In a previous prototype, I was able to protect my laptop and phone with the assurance that no uninvited guests could find access even while using available public wi-fi. With this newer design, I’m being told to disconnect everywhere, that there is a threat around every corner. So I ask again, what kind of security is this? I’m paying for a pretense? Why would I want a security system that can’t protect my electronics?
Good App

by Ted E Bear In October outside on 2019/03/21 19:59
Hi. I bumped your rating up to 4 stars because you now include WiFi VPN in your mobile app. As for the 5th star I knocked off, that is because your VPN doesn’t seem to work with outlook mail from Microsoft. I get a connection issue reaching outlook mail servers and I have to disconnect the vpn services. Also it would be very nice to also use not only a VPN but a Proxy url as well that users could install in the settings app in the WiFi to block certain things as well as create a 1st line of defense against ads. I would also like to see you guys issue a certificate that would then be able to be a profile on the end user as well as have your safe web vpn be adjusted with a feature you had a few years back that allowed users to see and identify the bad websites in real time by the use of a green circled check mark or a red circled Do NoT Enter sign next to each link. I really liked that feature. It’s too bad that was taken away. I will bump back up to 5 stars if these are implemented. I would also like to see a way users could filter out websites based on topic or issue with the Adblock VPN or the SafeWeb VPN or a proxy or certificate for each subject people might want to block that would communicate with the VPN for safe web.
McAfee App Sent Phishing Message
by Beekeeper911 on 2018/08/10 18:53
I received the following alert from the McAfee App, that my Wi-Fi was under threat & I should disconnect - “1 threat found. Scan complete. [(MY WI-FI NAME)] - Your personal info is at risk, Disconnect Now!” I was uncomfortable about this message using my Wi-Fi name in a pop up, so I called McAfee & they were unaware of why this message was sent. That Representative told me that it was a Phishing attempt & to disregard the ‘email’! She sent me to Technical Support, when I explained that this alert came from the App. Tech Support was also unaware of this message, but after speaking to someone, ran me through disconnecting & reconnecting my iPhone from the Wi-Fi. As I have not had Wi-Fi trouble, there was no reconnect issue. But then, the tech told me that my PASSWORD was weak (it is very strong) & that I should change it. This felt fishy to me. I tried to tell the McAfee Tech that they should check to make sure THEIR APP hadn’t been hacked. I did not feel that they understood. I then called AppleCare to report this. AppleCare does not have an avenue to contact developers about such issues. I am hoping that McAfee will read this review and check their system. I am trying to be helpful here, and I see that someone actually responded to a previous concern.
Great! Except....
by skulivan on 2018/11/10 00:56
I really like the McAfee Security however, there are some very annoying issues: 1) when protecting more than one device a) had to install several times on each device to get that device to show up in my list of protected devices. Also, the labels aren’t the same as the names I gave them 2) Account homepage still lists duplicate devices when you get a new subscription-still haven’t found a way to delete the devices from expired/previous subscriptions Overall, the actual product is the best in my opinion. Although it takes a bit of finesse to get things organized so you really know your devices are protected using the exact same subscription and its parameters. McAfee needs to streamline this process and let people know to install the software on your Pc FIRST. Then from that Pc, send msgs to your other devices. This way all/everything is in the same place to be administered. If you do not do it this way, it’s all confusing and your list of protected devices won’t be right.
Can’t control background scan or request Signature updates
by cf67polv5 on 2019/08/30 15:14
App Settings have no background scan control. After executing an on demand scan there is, in my opinion no reason for additional background scans especially when the device hasn’t even been in use. If it had background scan controls it would be appreciated. I shut off background activity in iOS and scanner settings but it runs background scans anyway. A waste of battery charge. Also there seems to be no way to request a manual. virus signature update. If it had these capabilities I’d give it 5 stars but without some user control I can only give it 2.
Great Security App
by PeakA&Pals on 2018/10/09 12:59
This app is perfect. I originally used McAfee to keep my computer safe from malware and it worked quite well. Then I heard of this app. My oh my was it good. It had a safe place for my precious photos, with password lock. And it had safe web, which is a very nice touch. I use this app alongside an adblocker (I use Adguard) to keep my mobile browsing ad free and safe. By the way, you can link your phone to a pre-existing McAfee subscription like the one I used for my PC so you don’t have to buy several of them to protect your devices. I do have a minor complaint though, even though McAfee has a very user-friendly interface, it lacks the ability to have more advance options to specifically target certain things like malware. Plus the app can be a little buggy. Otherwise great app, worth your time. P.S. I am 14 years old. Thanks for reading this. Now get off your phone and go outside!

Was using the free version was very happy then all of a sudden it switched to a pay I am a senior and I loved the free one worked for what I needed limited income here so you would of got a 4 or 5 for the free one but when you want me to pay then you loose points I got a reply from McAfee because they upgraded there vpn the free edition is no longer available I am sad because it was working fine I upped my rating to a 3 star because at least they answered my question. I am sorry to say that I won’t be using there product because its not because I don’t want to it’s just a budget scenario because I have to decide medications or a VPN medications win when you are battling a non curable cancer that they can give you treatments to help control so much for the free edition I was very happy with. I just want to say thank you for your free edition and sorry that I cannot rate the new edition
Pretty disappointed
by maxwell jk on 2019/07/09 00:30
I’ve now visited multiple antivirus sites online. This app has popped up with multiple great reviews so I was hoping that it would work. I have received notifications of over 30 virus threats on my phone, and when I scanned my phone it stated that I had no threats to worry about except for the fact that I don’t have a passcode to my phone. I’ve searched for many not to expensive sites to help me out, do to my current money situation. And I was really hoping this one would work but it didn’t. I feel that if you are going to be put up onto antivirus protection sites you need to actually have a working app honestly i need to find a way to get rid of these viruses without going to get a new memory card. I had to rate it to put up my thoughts but I only give it a half star because it at least scanned the fact that I didn’t have a passcode.I hope you work on your app enough to help more people but I am not very pleased with my experience. Thank you for reading this I wish you and this app luck.
Is it worth it??
by Tw2icer on 2018/09/09 20:14
Security is one of the upmost important things to me, and I’m sure to a lot of you too! Now Mcafee has a mobile security app for devices. I personally was excited for this app. After downloading and registering I scanned my phone. It was easy and a little too quick but who doesn’t like fast and efficient?! Makes me wonder if I even needed it for my iPhone. One of the worlds greatest phones, My iPhone was fine before the install and I really don’t see how it would work on a phone with a real issue. The app is really limited on what it does. It contains 4 different scans that are great but what about scanning apps and programs and emails? It doesn’t really tell me what it really scans other then the 4 main options on the dashboard. So with or without I believe my iPhone will be just fine. I hope Mcafee develops the app more and can show you how the app works when your phone is under a real threat.
Latest update removed the VPN feature without paying for a separate subscription
by osugrad85 on 2019/03/21 18:58
I’ve been using McAfee security protection on my home computers for years as it was a provided feature through my ISP. When I got an iPad I was happy that it too was covered by the account I had created related to McAfee’s security protection that was part of my ISP service. BUT, with the latest update of this app, I lost the most important feature ... the VPN. Instead of having coverage through the McAfee security feature provided through my ISP, it looks like McAfee wants me to subscribe separately from my ISP to receive this feature. In fact, when I try to log in to the app, it accepts my log in information and even says that I have a license available. BUT, when I select that available license, the system responds by saying that my subscription has expired and I need to renew it. Definitely a money grab by McAfee and a wonderful way for them to lose their loyal customer base.
Seems like a scam just like all the others
by Shadysgirl66 on 2019/03/16 16:36
I downloaded this app a week ago. It included with the standard free package the safe web VPN. The VPN configured and the app showed I had SAFE WEB and the Ad blocking. Today I downloaded the update. Lost the VPN PROTECTION that went to PREMIUM PAY AND AD BLOCKING TO PREMIUM PAY. LOST THE FREE WIFI GUARD. MUST ALSO PREMIUM PAY FOR THAT NOW. Funny thing is it was not showing in my app updates as a Normal app would for an update. The only reason I saw the supposed update was I went to the App Store to read about a specific feature since once you have the original app downloaded all info in your settings area is minimal and vague. It’s a waste. I believe I was scammed with the original FALSE FREE PROTECTION for a week. It’s a worthless app when they took the 2 above protections away. Really McAfee I expected better of you. Have used your stuff for years. Going to delete most likely and go back to free FYDE. THEIR free protection is FREE and doesn’t change to zero after a week.
1803 windows 10 update left me B@@!$ out!
by penny wilde on 2018/11/12 01:23
All my devices got hacked with bad@$$ mean worm trojanspysomeware after update. I purchased mcafee aftet i got hit cuz microbrains support advised me only use defender...mcafee couldn’t find it after and remove it with their scanners but i have no blame for them, after I started using security no malware at all! Before hand all my accounts from fb to Experian were taken over. To people out there over 40, take these kids seriously when they tell ya passwords are weak, but strong ones get taken too. Pay the year, save 20 hours or more of your time! Do it
So far so good
by Geo Chicago on 2019/07/02 14:10
I like that it’s from a reputable name that’s been around. I’ve had other pic lock apps that disappeared and left their app unsupported. I also love that this app encrypts your locked photo on your phone only - so there is no back up on the cloud or their servers etc. It’s also great that you can turn off Face ID for locked pics and just use a pin. Also great that it does video locks too. And finally I like that it tells you with an alert of a private pic is still in your regular iPhone photos. My upgrade suggestion is to allow users to create folders. It’s hard to see what pics you have there if you can’t organize them the way you want it.
No virus or Malware protection
by bcooper767 on 2019/06/25 05:26
This app is great for backing up pics and contacts but that is it. It does not include virus or malware or browsing protection for your phone. I even have the top McAfee software for multiple devices. Bought it so my I phone 7 would be protected. But it does only back up which iCloud already does I also have MS One Drive so it is useless to have on my phone. I was very disappointed that it does not provide antivirus or malware protection for my phone. McAfee should state that upfront.i upgrade to 2 stars because it now will check to see if WiFi you are using using is safe but still now virus or malware check for I phone7 why can’t McAfee work a deal with apple? The advertise that McAfee can be use to protect up to 10 devices including IOS but that is not true.
It’s good but...
by Sarbear.A on 2019/09/04 21:12
Hi so I have had this app for a wile now and it seems to work well but I think that the 4 things it’s supposed to protect you from should all be free and I understand not EVERY thing can be free but some people may not have money for the protection they need.... besides that I accidentally clicked on a virus app and did not know and quickly got off I got on this app and checked if I was ok but resized it only does WiFi and contacts also pics the rest you have to pay... all I’m requesting is that you could make all four free because now I’m worried that I have a virus. Y’all are the only app that I trust to help me all the others are fake .
From 5 stars to 1. Very bad marketing move!
by HeadHunter on 2019/03/19 15:06
I formerly gave this app 5 solid stars and a glowing review. McAfee has been on my computers and devices as long as I can remember. Funny, I received a (computer generated) response to my review from McAfee. As a senior executive search professional I know a good move when I see one. Typically I ask, what is missing? I then saw the update for the free version. Unfortunately, I then found other users who are also very displeased with McAfee. There are other free virus / VPNs that can be trusted to work as much as one should expect from a developer. I was about to move up to the paid version of McAfee. I wanted to trust it was really doing the work and see how much better the update would be. They took away the free VPN. Total thumbs 👎 down on that move folks. If you are a major share holder I suggest you insist upon the immediate replacement of your VP of Marketing. Boneheaded move. You have to give to give your loyal customers something more, or the perception of more at the very least, ‘as’ you remove another benefit. Remember class 101? Feature. Benefit. WIIFM. (What’s in it for me?) you took away the WIIFM. Silly move. Reflects badly on the trustworthiness of McAfee.
Doesn’t give you fake viruses 🦠
by ShadowSoldier1328 on 2019/03/08 22:14
I’d like to say I’m only 14 and I don’t have any money whatsoever but all I need to do to see if I have any viruses is to press the scan button. So far for the past 2 years it hasn’t said anything and I haven’t even have had to pay for the protection. I tried 3 different anti-virus software and one of them said that I had 39 viruses and if I didn’t get rid of them in 1 week my phone would be shut down. 3 weeks later it didn’t get shut down. And that’s why I love McAffe, it doesn’t give fake viruses just to make money
Satisfied
by The Black Ragu on 2018/11/02 04:50
My name is Richard, and I’ve had my home PC for about 10 years. For the first three years, I have no security other than the security provided by HP and Windows, and had nothing but problems being able to get online, was any kind of a efficiency, due to all the bugs and viruses, that had infected my operating system. I’ve had mcAfee total protection for the last seven years, & I’m as satisfied as I can be, without having to spend extra for A VPN, or military encryption software. So thank you very much McAfee keep up the good work👍🏾!!!
Annoying app
by Once was a techie on 2019/04/05 20:26
Hey sample supposed to be helping, but so far all it’s done is irritate me. It keeps telling me my system ware is out of date that his system software is out of date, which I know. But it interrupted a video I was watching, now I cannot Find the video. Not only that, but there is no way to shut off the notifications. I can’t update to iOS 12.2 because there is not enough space to perform the update. TRAPPED! I talk to tech-support and they told me how to shut off the notification that the software was out of date. Now I am at work with Apple to figure out why I can’t update the software to iOS 12.2
Very efficient and effective. I have used it for years
by Suzifemme on 2019/03/02 16:30
My only issue is that I receive notifications throughout the day. It is distracting. If the scan finds no problems I prefer to not be bothered. On the hand I have been notified about problems I was not aware of. I was on a public wi-fi, or somehow I got switched to an unsecured safe web. I really appreciate being informed of problems so quickly. Try this app you will not be disappointed.
Got Issues Big Time!
by Howardonado on 2019/01/22 07:35
Your McAfee Security software for my iPhone must be a joke! My scan notes state that despite my phone's software is not current as it ought. Also noted that my home button fingerprint control is not being actively used! The scan notes that these 2 Issues should not pose a Security threat to my device! Really? My McAfee app has obviously been compromised by my uninvited cybercrime low lifes. I doubt you will get this feedback. Get back to me if you have any suggestions for me to remedy this matter. I plan to report this to the US FTC as soon as i can do so. Howard Carver
Initial concerns
by Bigdud73 on 2018/11/06 09:45
So I just recently installed the app and created an account (less than 2 weeks ago). So this is just an initial review. My first concern is you expect me to I trust you with my security but you can’t process special characters in passwords. That is a serious oversight that must be addressed immediately. Besides that glaring flaw things seem to be running smoothly. The program doesn’t seem to slow down my phone; I like the fact that pictures are encrypted but not backed up to the cloud. The built in VPN feature is also very convenient. Please address the password special character limitation.
Not what I expected
by CoFeMomma on 2018/07/15 16:42
I subscribed to the 5 Device Protection Plan for our family PC, and all of our mobile devices. When I added my phone, it took me to the App Store to download the McAffee App. Before downloading the app I made sure to read thru to make sure my phone was compatible. The app says it is compatible with all iPhone iOS devices, so I started the download. When the app opened, it looked nothing like the preview on the App Store. There is no scan button at all. Then I find out that Apple doesn’t work with other antivirus programs so I basically paid for a plan I don’t need. I will still keep my subscription, I will just downgrade to the basic PC plan.
Cannot access VPN Wifi Guard
by Zofia.P on 2019/05/18 12:37
After running a scan it determines I need to run the VPN for the WiFi hotspot that my device is connected to. However it apparently is already on as I have the VPN tag near my wifi bars but the app doesn't recognize that it's been turned on as pressing the "Turn on VPN" button doesn't function as intended. The status of the scanner still says to fix the problem. The only way is to trust this wifi network which I do not want to do. I'm not sure if it's actually working or not.
Enough problems
by QueenBJPB on 2019/09/11 10:27
i’m in the hospital and I’m using the guest Internet and McAfee told me when it was not safe and advise me to turn cell phone off. I turned it off immediately.I turned cell on later and mcafee told me I had a threat and then I get this message so I’m glad to know that you’re watching and seeing what I can’t see. Being here in the hospital I have enough problems so thanks McAfee for taking care of this problem
Purchased From ITunes Store
by ❤️breaker on 2018/09/02 17:58
Purchased app from ITunes and after running scans for several days when I connect to WiFi, I registered the software and had problems from the get go. I cannot access my contacts, the location is incorrect, the IMEI incorrect and it says I am not using a SIM card also incorrect. After speaking with tech support they want me to buy a subscription as it says the software was downloaded today but the subscription expired yesterday incorrect. I would like to have a software such as this for my phone but now My concerns are if I pay will this info then be correct? If not, it’s useless and time spent wasted and money spent wasted.
Pete
by Xavier_Pete on 2019/01/07 18:43
Very easy to install and setup. I don’t like that it gives a warning because it wants you to keep only 1 copy of your photos (in their cloud) so it wants you to delete them from your phone. I’d like to keep them on my phone and be able to access them offline. Would b nice to b able to turn off the warning. Still give big thumbs up for this app!
Mobile Security and Safe Connect
by chillbill90 on 2019/07/09 21:52
VPN does not work and McAfee tech support is clueless. They are just reading from a formulaic script. I keep getting messages when on public WiFi that my connection is not secure and should be disconnected or a VPN should be turned on. But I already have a VPN turned on — McAfee Safe Connect. The two apps, which both come included with a McAfee Total Protection subscription, do it appear to be able to talk to each other. Mobile Security should know when McAfee Safe Connect is already turned on and using a VPN. Very frustrating and a waste of time to get the constant messages when I already have a VPN turned on, McAfee Safe Connect.
Nuisance messages
by Richard2448 on 2018/12/12 22:10
I was traveling out of town and staying in a hotel with free WiFi, I received an update every 5 minutes for 4 days, that the network wasn’t secure and I should disconnect, even though I had my mcafee VPN on the entire time and I constantly selected “trust this WiFi network”. What a headache.. I try to stay on my home WiFi when I can, but sometimes I have to switch to LTE, when I try to go back onto my home WiFi, mcafee blocks it, so I consistently have to turn off the vpn, reconnect to my WiFi and then turn it back on. I get a daily message that my WiFi is safe, but why does mcafee continually block me connecting to my home WiFi??

Works great but missing some awesome features
by jaja bender on 2018/07/20 02:59
I have this on my iPhone 7+ work phone as well as my Galaxy Note 8 personal phone and the Samsung app has more features or different ones there is no media vault but u can lock out individual apps so in turn u can lock all your media I am like most who let their kids play with there phone I have to check them to make sure they are not on any social media apps that are inappropriate, with that feature I don’t have to worry. Make it happen Mcafee

After the last update the App is crashing.
by Andre Leitzbach on 2018/09/24 11:08
I love the products from McAfee and I also use the apps an all my devices (Now a 8 Plus). But this time I’m absolutely disappointed. The app is not working anymore. That’s very bad because I use the vault for important documents and other information. That’s the first time I’m really disappointed with McAfee.
Amazing
by Recommended APP!!!! on 2019/02/01 00:44
So I normally do not write reviews but it works amazingly awesome. Also, if you have a Spectrum internet service, you are eligible to download this unlimited protection from McAfee for free. Just create a Spectrum email address after you log in, and create an McAfee account on there. Then log in from this app and you have unlimited VPN service. Happy benefits Spectrum Customers!!!!
Not you too!
by Sunshine and me on 2019/03/11 20:18
If enjoying McAfee across all my devices. I find it to be good (One can never really know how protected we are especially with the free versions). Anyhow I’ve trusted it’s VPN. As of today I find I can not use it without upgrading to the paid version. I’m disappointed. McAfee is offered full blown, all the amenities, free when using certain INP’s. Just plan old disappointed. Many awesome apps I have enjoyed have gone to subscription. I wonder is it the developers or is it Apple.
Love the features but
by chakraheart on 2019/02/03 18:14
Hey guys can you please add spyware protection to the app or have the option to pay for it. Something like so no one can download spyware apps or be able to detect one. Other than that , love the features! Anti theft camera. Sends last location. & can back up contacts. So you never lose them. I switched from lookout to Mcafee and I don’t regret it!! Thanks for your time if you read my review !
Easy to install, share and use
by PJQ18 on 2019/04/08 02:29
This app has been great, easy to install, review features and updates. When I go into a new location the program automatically checks the internet and tells me if it is safe or not. I have also used this one purchase on other iPhones, tablet and laptops.
Safe Web keeps shutting off
by Uradip on 2019/01/10 14:27
I am giving this 3 stars primarily because I just began using it and also the safe web setting has to be reset everyday at least one or two times. You would think that once it is set that it would remain on all the time. Also, it would be nice to know what this app is actually doing by providing a scan analysis after it runs. Always enjoyed the McAfee products when I was working.
Mcafee wifi guard
by mc14352645367 on 2019/07/29 17:48
I got the app on my phone and upgraded to add wifi guard protection. The wifi guard never worked, couldn’t get to turn on. Tried the online support and never got a helpful response. Called the support number and it wouldn’t go through, just hung up on me. When i finally did get to talk to someone there i was told that the wifi guard was not one of their products and i would need to go to where i bought the wifi guard for a refund. I did purchase it from their app so i don’t know what to do now. My advise is to stay away from this product!
Is it doing anything?
by happytobesecure on 2019/01/16 17:43
App is ok, but I have no idea if it’s doing anything. The interface doesn’t tell me if I’m current with my subscription or which type and level of protection I have. There are links for useful tools, so good there. I just don’t get why this app is needed or if it’s particularly useful overall. Maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem to do much besides take up an app space on my phone. Please send me info on how it can be more beneficial.
Wonderful!!
by Time-Travelerxx on 2018/09/07 07:21
My husband bought a new HP computer with Windows 10 and the gentleman that saved and loaded what he could from our old hard drive also installed a trial of your product. We loved it so much we purchased it and it covered our wireless phones, my laptop and my iPad!! We feel quite secure knowing Mcafee is at work.
Really good antivirus
by bigger chugus on 2019/02/08 04:21
Recently I got a virus and I was worried so I typed in virus in the App Store and clicked the first one which was this did the scan I had 2 threats and ignored one because my private info password was very strong. The one threat I did was my phone was not up to date but it was but I updated it anyways and my phone was back to normal
Review to McAfee
by miss my apps lady on 2018/09/07 00:04
I think you are middle f the road for iPhones need. But I am grateful for what McAfee does offer. Today I have had my WiFi and web search turned and not by me. I have call coming thru Facebook from people I don't know. I have an added gmail account on my phone. So I am lacking in security. Tho I don't want to sound as if I am critiquing. I just wish we could have really added protection so we could use our smartphones without fear of nasty and cowardly hackers. I feel they are cowards because they hide like unintelligent species of something other than mankind. So that's my opinion for what it's worth, if anything. As a company I pray you go forward and make great strides in the field of security for all internet devices. Thank you for the opportunity to speak.
safe web surfing?
by challenged in Georgia on 2019/08/28 10:27
I was under the impression that a VPN allowed you to use public wi-fi and your information would be kept hidden. Several times, I have gotten a message saying the site is unsecured and to get off immediately. Is this not what the VPN is supposed to protect me from? Just telling me to leave the connection kind of defeats the purpose. Is there something I don’t understand? I do like the scans it does of my phone security.
doesn’t do anything
by Henry3436 on 2019/08/22 03:45
the only “protection” this app provides is making sure my phone is updating and continuously telling me to disconnect from a wifi because it has no password. I personally hate the wifi protection since it only uses your hardware id, so if i connect to a wifi system that is in an airport, school, or some similar type of wifi, it will forget my id, and that renders the “trust wifi ” useless. But the computer software is much better, so i give 2 stars.
Does reflect validpurchases
by Me&Me&youtoo on 2019/06/30 05:27
Doesn’t reflect purchases made even though credit card is charged and when you finally get to manage my account you see that you have already paid, and sometimes it appears you may have paid twice. This should be fixed so that the constant reminders to upgrade can be safely ignored. It makes me wonder if the app is really scanning anything at all?
Bad subscription
by Too good to be true or not on 2019/01/31 15:22
When I purchased this app I thought I was getting the latest updated program, but it was about 3-weeks later I got a notification that my system was outdated. Then it also said I can pay more $ for the updated antivirus program. So why sell something old when it was going to be revised? Is it all about the $ or is Macafee really trying to protect my system? Things that make you say hmmm!

by KeiFL74 on 2019/09/15 11:03
09/15/19 Update to my previous post that some how went missing or deleted. While updating the app, the download had been taking an extremely long time. So again I open the app and turned off the Safe Web VPN and then the app was able to upgrade. So obviously the upgrade didn’t fix the issue!! 08/06/19 The new updated Safe Web VPN is really slowing down my phone and causing sites that I normally visit to time out or just never open. My service before the update was super fast 5G. I end up turning off the safe Web VPN, and my phone returned to normal. Please fix the issue this new update is causing, the previous version was worked great. The Safe Web VPN is one of the reasons I went from Webroot to Mcafee, now the service is useless and doesn’t work.

by WHHJR on 2019/09/10 22:05
This is a well designed app that has a nice look and feel to it, easy to navigate and enough features to make it a worthwhile application to have on your iPhone. No advertising and just an overall low maintenance app that you will forget is installed on your phone until you need it. Some handy features like the Vault where you can “hide” pictures, documents or phone numbers. It does not offer a backup for your phone but does have the ability to encrypt the file you would include in a backup, a feature where it can track a lost iPhone, sound an alarm to help you locate a lost misplaced phone and a neat feature where once the phone battery is critically low, the app sends up to the McAfee Website a location so that way if the battery does die and you have misplaced your iPhone then it could potentially have the last location you may have left the phone. Best of all its free

McAfee is awesome. I’m disabled and can’t afford their (pay) better security app. But they are so good that they have this free one and it still covers a lot of things. Every one should use McAfee Security. I’ll get the better one as soon as I can. But THANKS McAfee for still caring enough to still provide as much as you do for free.

Hi so I have had this app for a wile now and it seems to work well but I think that the 4 things it’s supposed to protect you from should all be free and I understand not EVERY thing can be free but some people may not have money for the protection they need.... besides that I accidentally clicked on a virus app and did not know and quickly got off I got on this app and checked if I was ok but resized it only does WiFi and contacts also pics the rest you have to pay... all I’m requesting is that you could make all four free because now I’m worried that I have a virus. Y’all are the only app that I trust to help me all the others are fake .

Garbage
by El Carim on 2019/09/03 19:10

Incompetent and worst Technical Support

I purchased a year subscription of plus expiring in 2020. It was working then it reverted back to a free account without all the plus features. I would give this zero stars if possible. It’s been over six weeks and the issue is still not resolved. It’s by far the worst technical and customer support from a company that is supposedly a leader in internet security.

Can’t control background scan or request Signature updates
by cf67polv5 on 2019/08/30 15:14
App Settings have no background scan control. After executing an on demand scan there is, in my opinion no reason for additional background scans especially when the device hasn’t even been in use. If it had background scan controls it would be appreciated. I shut off background activity in iOS and scanner settings but it runs background scans anyway. A waste of battery charge. Also there seems to be no way to request a manual. virus signature update. If it had these capabilities I’d give it 5 stars but without some user control I can only give it 2.
Great way to stay safe

by challenged in Georgia on 2019/08/28 10:27
I was under the impression that a VPN allowed you to use public wi-fi and your information would be kept hidden. Several times, I have gotten a message saying the site is unsecured and to get off immediately. Is this not what the VPN is supposed to protect me from? Just telling me to leave the connection kind of defeats the purpose. Is there something I don’t understand? I do like the scans it does of my phone security.

Not sure why McAfee doesn’t store the photos, or why they don’t have a button to select all or scroll to select. Instead we have to click one by one. I have to many photos for that! Does this mean are photos aren’t safe or guaranteed anything besides storage?

by Henry3436 on 2019/08/22 03:45
the only “protection” this app provides is making sure my phone is updating and continuously telling me to disconnect from a wifi because it has no password. I personally hate the wifi protection since it only uses your hardware id, so if i connect to a wifi system that is in an airport, school, or some similar type of wifi, it will forget my id, and that renders the “trust wifi ” useless. But the computer software is much better, so i give 2 stars.

What Kind of Security Is This?
by Tethered to home on 2019/08/14 16:46
In a previous prototype, I was able to protect my laptop and phone with the assurance that no uninvited guests could find access even while using available public wi-fi. With this newer design, I’m being told to disconnect everywhere, that there is a threat around every corner. So I ask again, what kind of security is this? I’m paying for a pretense? Why would I want a security system that can’t protect my electronics?

#Improvements to be made.
by Ted E Bear In October outside on 2019/03/21 19:59
Hi. I bumped your rating up to 4 stars because you now include WiFi VPN in your mobile app. As for the 5th star I knocked off, that is because your VPN doesn’t seem to work with outlook mail from Microsoft. I get a connection issue reaching outlook mail servers and I have to disconnect the vpn services. Also it would be very nice to also use not only a VPN but a Proxy url as well that users could install in the settings app in the WiFi to block certain things as well as create a 1st line of defense against ads. I would also like to see you guys issue a certificate that would then be able to be a profile on the end user as well as have your safe web vpn be adjusted with a feature you had a few years back that allowed users to see and identify the bad websites in real time by the use of a green circled check mark or a red circled Do NoT Enter sign next to each link. I really liked that feature. It’s too bad that was taken away. I will bump back up to 5 stars if these are implemented. I would also like to see a way users could filter out websites based on topic or issue with the Adblock VPN or the SafeWeb VPN or a proxy or certificate for each subject people might want to block that would communicate with the VPN for safe web.
McAfee App Sent Phishing Message
by Beekeeper911 on 2018/08/10 18:53
I received the following alert from the McAfee App, that my Wi-Fi was under threat & I should disconnect - “1 threat found. Scan complete. [(MY WI-FI NAME)] - Your personal info is at risk, Disconnect Now!” I was uncomfortable about this message using my Wi-Fi name in a pop up, so I called McAfee & they were unaware of why this message was sent. That Representative told me that it was a Phishing attempt & to disregard the ‘email’! She sent me to Technical Support, when I explained that this alert came from the App. Tech Support was also unaware of this message, but after speaking to someone, ran me through disconnecting & reconnecting my iPhone from the Wi-Fi. As I have not had Wi-Fi trouble, there was no reconnect issue. But then, the tech told me that my PASSWORD was weak (it is very strong) & that I should change it. This felt fishy to me. I tried to tell the McAfee Tech that they should check to make sure THEIR APP hadn’t been hacked. I did not feel that they understood. I then called AppleCare to report this. AppleCare does not have an avenue to contact developers about such issues. I am hoping that McAfee will read this review and check their system. I am trying to be helpful here, and I see that someone actually responded to a previous concern.
Great! Except....
by skulivan on 2018/11/10 00:56
I really like the McAfee Security however, there are some very annoying issues: 1) when protecting more than one device a) had to install several times on each device to get that device to show up in my list of protected devices. Also, the labels aren’t the same as the names I gave them 2) Account homepage still lists duplicate devices when you get a new subscription-still haven’t found a way to delete the devices from expired/previous subscriptions Overall, the actual product is the best in my opinion. Although it takes a bit of finesse to get things organized so you really know your devices are protected using the exact same subscription and its parameters. McAfee needs to streamline this process and let people know to install the software on your Pc FIRST. Then from that Pc, send msgs to your other devices. This way all/everything is in the same place to be administered. If you do not do it this way, it’s all confusing and your list of protected devices won’t be right.
Can’t control background scan or request Signature updates

App Settings have no background scan control. After executing an on demand scan there is, in my opinion no reason for additional background scans especially when the device hasn’t even been in use. If it had background scan controls it would be appreciated. I shut off background activity in iOS and scanner settings but it runs background scans anyway. A waste of battery charge. Also there seems to be no way to request a manual. virus signature update. If it had these capabilities I’d give it 5 stars but without some user control I can only give it 2.
Great Security App
by PeakA&Pals on 2018/10/09 12:59
This app is perfect. I originally used McAfee to keep my computer safe from malware and it worked quite well. Then I heard of this app. My oh my was it good. It had a safe place for my precious photos, with password lock. And it had safe web, which is a very nice touch. I use this app alongside an adblocker (I use Adguard) to keep my mobile browsing ad free and safe. By the way, you can link your phone to a pre-existing McAfee subscription like the one I used for my PC so you don’t have to buy several of them to protect your devices. I do have a minor complaint though, even though McAfee has a very user-friendly interface, it lacks the ability to have more advance options to specifically target certain things like malware. Plus the app can be a little buggy. Otherwise great app, worth your time. P.S. I am 14 years old. Thanks for reading this. Now get off your phone and go outside!

Was using the free version was very happy then all of a sudden it switched to a pay I am a senior and I loved the free one worked for what I needed limited income here so you would of got a 4 or 5 for the free one but when you want me to pay then you loose points I got a reply from McAfee because they upgraded there vpn the free edition is no longer available I am sad because it was working fine I upped my rating to a 3 star because at least they answered my question. I am sorry to say that I won’t be using there product because its not because I don’t want to it’s just a budget scenario because I have to decide medications or a VPN medications win when you are battling a non curable cancer that they can give you treatments to help control so much for the free edition I was very happy with. I just want to say thank you for your free edition and sorry that I cannot rate the new edition
Pretty disappointed
by maxwell jk on 2019/07/09 00:30
I’ve now visited multiple antivirus sites online. This app has popped up with multiple great reviews so I was hoping that it would work. I have received notifications of over 30 virus threats on my phone, and when I scanned my phone it stated that I had no threats to worry about except for the fact that I don’t have a passcode to my phone. I’ve searched for many not to expensive sites to help me out, do to my current money situation. And I was really hoping this one would work but it didn’t. I feel that if you are going to be put up onto antivirus protection sites you need to actually have a working app honestly i need to find a way to get rid of these viruses without going to get a new memory card. I had to rate it to put up my thoughts but I only give it a half star because it at least scanned the fact that I didn’t have a passcode.I hope you work on your app enough to help more people but I am not very pleased with my experience. Thank you for reading this I wish you and this app luck.
Is it worth it??
by Tw2icer on 2018/09/09 20:14
Security is one of the upmost important things to me, and I’m sure to a lot of you too! Now Mcafee has a mobile security app for devices. I personally was excited for this app. After downloading and registering I scanned my phone. It was easy and a little too quick but who doesn’t like fast and efficient?! Makes me wonder if I even needed it for my iPhone. One of the worlds greatest phones, My iPhone was fine before the install and I really don’t see how it would work on a phone with a real issue. The app is really limited on what it does. It contains 4 different scans that are great but what about scanning apps and programs and emails? It doesn’t really tell me what it really scans other then the 4 main options on the dashboard. So with or without I believe my iPhone will be just fine. I hope Mcafee develops the app more and can show you how the app works when your phone is under a real threat.
Latest update removed the VPN feature without paying for a separate subscription
by osugrad85 on 2019/03/21 18:58
I’ve been using McAfee security protection on my home computers for years as it was a provided feature through my ISP. When I got an iPad I was happy that it too was covered by the account I had created related to McAfee’s security protection that was part of my ISP service. BUT, with the latest update of this app, I lost the most important feature ... the VPN. Instead of having coverage through the McAfee security feature provided through my ISP, it looks like McAfee wants me to subscribe separately from my ISP to receive this feature. In fact, when I try to log in to the app, it accepts my log in information and even says that I have a license available. BUT, when I select that available license, the system responds by saying that my subscription has expired and I need to renew it. Definitely a money grab by McAfee and a wonderful way for them to lose their loyal customer base.
Seems like a scam just like all the others
by Shadysgirl66 on 2019/03/16 16:36
I downloaded this app a week ago. It included with the standard free package the safe web VPN. The VPN configured and the app showed I had SAFE WEB and the Ad blocking. Today I downloaded the update. Lost the VPN PROTECTION that went to PREMIUM PAY AND AD BLOCKING TO PREMIUM PAY. LOST THE FREE WIFI GUARD. MUST ALSO PREMIUM PAY FOR THAT NOW. Funny thing is it was not showing in my app updates as a Normal app would for an update. The only reason I saw the supposed update was I went to the App Store to read about a specific feature since once you have the original app downloaded all info in your settings area is minimal and vague. It’s a waste. I believe I was scammed with the original FALSE FREE PROTECTION for a week. It’s a worthless app when they took the 2 above protections away. Really McAfee I expected better of you. Have used your stuff for years. Going to delete most likely and go back to free FYDE. THEIR free protection is FREE and doesn’t change to zero after a week.
1803 windows 10 update left me B@@!$ out!
by penny wilde on 2018/11/12 01:23
All my devices got hacked with bad@$$ mean worm trojanspysomeware after update. I purchased mcafee aftet i got hit cuz microbrains support advised me only use defender...mcafee couldn’t find it after and remove it with their scanners but i have no blame for them, after I started using security no malware at all! Before hand all my accounts from fb to Experian were taken over. To people out there over 40, take these kids seriously when they tell ya passwords are weak, but strong ones get taken too. Pay the year, save 20 hours or more of your time! Do it
So far so good
by Geo Chicago on 2019/07/02 14:10
I like that it’s from a reputable name that’s been around. I’ve had other pic lock apps that disappeared and left their app unsupported. I also love that this app encrypts your locked photo on your phone only - so there is no back up on the cloud or their servers etc. It’s also great that you can turn off Face ID for locked pics and just use a pin. Also great that it does video locks too. And finally I like that it tells you with an alert of a private pic is still in your regular iPhone photos. My upgrade suggestion is to allow users to create folders. It’s hard to see what pics you have there if you can’t organize them the way you want it.
No virus or Malware protection
by bcooper767 on 2019/06/25 05:26
This app is great for backing up pics and contacts but that is it. It does not include virus or malware or browsing protection for your phone. I even have the top McAfee software for multiple devices. Bought it so my I phone 7 would be protected. But it does only back up which iCloud already does I also have MS One Drive so it is useless to have on my phone. I was very disappointed that it does not provide antivirus or malware protection for my phone. McAfee should state that upfront.i upgrade to 2 stars because it now will check to see if WiFi you are using using is safe but still now virus or malware check for I phone7 why can’t McAfee work a deal with apple? The advertise that McAfee can be use to protect up to 10 devices including IOS but that is not true.
It’s good but...
by Sarbear.A on 2019/09/04 21:12
Hi so I have had this app for a wile now and it seems to work well but I think that the 4 things it’s supposed to protect you from should all be free and I understand not EVERY thing can be free but some people may not have money for the protection they need.... besides that I accidentally clicked on a virus app and did not know and quickly got off I got on this app and checked if I was ok but resized it only does WiFi and contacts also pics the rest you have to pay... all I’m requesting is that you could make all four free because now I’m worried that I have a virus. Y’all are the only app that I trust to help me all the others are fake .
From 5 stars to 1. Very bad marketing move!
by HeadHunter on 2019/03/19 15:06
I formerly gave this app 5 solid stars and a glowing review. McAfee has been on my computers and devices as long as I can remember. Funny, I received a (computer generated) response to my review from McAfee. As a senior executive search professional I know a good move when I see one. Typically I ask, what is missing? I then saw the update for the free version. Unfortunately, I then found other users who are also very displeased with McAfee. There are other free virus / VPNs that can be trusted to work as much as one should expect from a developer. I was about to move up to the paid version of McAfee. I wanted to trust it was really doing the work and see how much better the update would be. They took away the free VPN. Total thumbs 👎 down on that move folks. If you are a major share holder I suggest you insist upon the immediate replacement of your VP of Marketing. Boneheaded move. You have to give to give your loyal customers something more, or the perception of more at the very least, ‘as’ you remove another benefit. Remember class 101? Feature. Benefit. WIIFM. (What’s in it for me?) you took away the WIIFM. Silly move. Reflects badly on the trustworthiness of McAfee.
Doesn’t give you fake viruses 🦠
by ShadowSoldier1328 on 2019/03/08 22:14
I’d like to say I’m only 14 and I don’t have any money whatsoever but all I need to do to see if I have any viruses is to press the scan button. So far for the past 2 years it hasn’t said anything and I haven’t even have had to pay for the protection. I tried 3 different anti-virus software and one of them said that I had 39 viruses and if I didn’t get rid of them in 1 week my phone would be shut down. 3 weeks later it didn’t get shut down. And that’s why I love McAffe, it doesn’t give fake viruses just to make money
Satisfied
by The Black Ragu on 2018/11/02 04:50
My name is Richard, and I’ve had my home PC for about 10 years. For the first three years, I have no security other than the security provided by HP and Windows, and had nothing but problems being able to get online, was any kind of a efficiency, due to all the bugs and viruses, that had infected my operating system. I’ve had mcAfee total protection for the last seven years, & I’m as satisfied as I can be, without having to spend extra for A VPN, or military encryption software. So thank you very much McAfee keep up the good work👍🏾!!!
Annoying app
by Once was a techie on 2019/04/05 20:26
Hey sample supposed to be helping, but so far all it’s done is irritate me. It keeps telling me my system ware is out of date that his system software is out of date, which I know. But it interrupted a video I was watching, now I cannot Find the video. Not only that, but there is no way to shut off the notifications. I can’t update to iOS 12.2 because there is not enough space to perform the update. TRAPPED! I talk to tech-support and they told me how to shut off the notification that the software was out of date. Now I am at work with Apple to figure out why I can’t update the software to iOS 12.2
Very efficient and effective. I have used it for years
by Suzifemme on 2019/03/02 16:30
My only issue is that I receive notifications throughout the day. It is distracting. If the scan finds no problems I prefer to not be bothered. On the hand I have been notified about problems I was not aware of. I was on a public wi-fi, or somehow I got switched to an unsecured safe web. I really appreciate being informed of problems so quickly. Try this app you will not be disappointed.
Got Issues Big Time!
by Howardonado on 2019/01/22 07:35
Your McAfee Security software for my iPhone must be a joke! My scan notes state that despite my phone's software is not current as it ought. Also noted that my home button fingerprint control is not being actively used! The scan notes that these 2 Issues should not pose a Security threat to my device! Really? My McAfee app has obviously been compromised by my uninvited cybercrime low lifes. I doubt you will get this feedback. Get back to me if you have any suggestions for me to remedy this matter. I plan to report this to the US FTC as soon as i can do so. Howard Carver
Initial concerns
by Bigdud73 on 2018/11/06 09:45
So I just recently installed the app and created an account (less than 2 weeks ago). So this is just an initial review. My first concern is you expect me to I trust you with my security but you can’t process special characters in passwords. That is a serious oversight that must be addressed immediately. Besides that glaring flaw things seem to be running smoothly. The program doesn’t seem to slow down my phone; I like the fact that pictures are encrypted but not backed up to the cloud. The built in VPN feature is also very convenient. Please address the password special character limitation.
Not what I expected
by CoFeMomma on 2018/07/15 16:42
I subscribed to the 5 Device Protection Plan for our family PC, and all of our mobile devices. When I added my phone, it took me to the App Store to download the McAffee App. Before downloading the app I made sure to read thru to make sure my phone was compatible. The app says it is compatible with all iPhone iOS devices, so I started the download. When the app opened, it looked nothing like the preview on the App Store. There is no scan button at all. Then I find out that Apple doesn’t work with other antivirus programs so I basically paid for a plan I don’t need. I will still keep my subscription, I will just downgrade to the basic PC plan.
Cannot access VPN Wifi Guard
by Zofia.P on 2019/05/18 12:37
After running a scan it determines I need to run the VPN for the WiFi hotspot that my device is connected to. However it apparently is already on as I have the VPN tag near my wifi bars but the app doesn't recognize that it's been turned on as pressing the "Turn on VPN" button doesn't function as intended. The status of the scanner still says to fix the problem. The only way is to trust this wifi network which I do not want to do. I'm not sure if it's actually working or not.
Enough problems
by QueenBJPB on 2019/09/11 10:27
i’m in the hospital and I’m using the guest Internet and McAfee told me when it was not safe and advise me to turn cell phone off. I turned it off immediately.I turned cell on later and mcafee told me I had a threat and then I get this message so I’m glad to know that you’re watching and seeing what I can’t see. Being here in the hospital I have enough problems so thanks McAfee for taking care of this problem
Purchased From ITunes Store
by ❤️breaker on 2018/09/02 17:58
Purchased app from ITunes and after running scans for several days when I connect to WiFi, I registered the software and had problems from the get go. I cannot access my contacts, the location is incorrect, the IMEI incorrect and it says I am not using a SIM card also incorrect. After speaking with tech support they want me to buy a subscription as it says the software was downloaded today but the subscription expired yesterday incorrect. I would like to have a software such as this for my phone but now My concerns are if I pay will this info then be correct? If not, it’s useless and time spent wasted and money spent wasted.
Pete
by Xavier_Pete on 2019/01/07 18:43
Very easy to install and setup. I don’t like that it gives a warning because it wants you to keep only 1 copy of your photos (in their cloud) so it wants you to delete them from your phone. I’d like to keep them on my phone and be able to access them offline. Would b nice to b able to turn off the warning. Still give big thumbs up for this app!
Mobile Security and Safe Connect
by chillbill90 on 2019/07/09 21:52
VPN does not work and McAfee tech support is clueless. They are just reading from a formulaic script. I keep getting messages when on public WiFi that my connection is not secure and should be disconnected or a VPN should be turned on. But I already have a VPN turned on — McAfee Safe Connect. The two apps, which both come included with a McAfee Total Protection subscription, do it appear to be able to talk to each other. Mobile Security should know when McAfee Safe Connect is already turned on and using a VPN. Very frustrating and a waste of time to get the constant messages when I already have a VPN turned on, McAfee Safe Connect.
Nuisance messages
by Richard2448 on 2018/12/12 22:10
I was traveling out of town and staying in a hotel with free WiFi, I received an update every 5 minutes for 4 days, that the network wasn’t secure and I should disconnect, even though I had my mcafee VPN on the entire time and I constantly selected “trust this WiFi network”. What a headache.. I try to stay on my home WiFi when I can, but sometimes I have to switch to LTE, when I try to go back onto my home WiFi, mcafee blocks it, so I consistently have to turn off the vpn, reconnect to my WiFi and then turn it back on. I get a daily message that my WiFi is safe, but why does mcafee continually block me connecting to my home WiFi??

Works great but missing some awesome features
by jaja bender on 2018/07/20 02:59
I have this on my iPhone 7+ work phone as well as my Galaxy Note 8 personal phone and the Samsung app has more features or different ones there is no media vault but u can lock out individual apps so in turn u can lock all your media I am like most who let their kids play with there phone I have to check them to make sure they are not on any social media apps that are inappropriate, with that feature I don’t have to worry. Make it happen Mcafee

Software is been working pretty good I have McAfee on my PC I talk to a tech tonight about since I had McAbee for my PC if they could help me to protect my Apple phone they said I had to rebuy a license they are very friendly but I didn’t see why I have to buy another license after already purchasing a license I like the customer service and I would recommend it to a friendThank you and God bless
After the last update the App is crashing.
by Andre Leitzbach on 2018/09/24 11:08
I love the products from McAfee and I also use the apps an all my devices (Now a 8 Plus). But this time I’m absolutely disappointed. The app is not working anymore. That’s very bad because I use the vault for important documents and other information. That’s the first time I’m really disappointed with McAfee.
Amazing
by Recommended APP!!!! on 2019/02/01 00:44
So I normally do not write reviews but it works amazingly awesome. Also, if you have a Spectrum internet service, you are eligible to download this unlimited protection from McAfee for free. Just create a Spectrum email address after you log in, and create an McAfee account on there. Then log in from this app and you have unlimited VPN service. Happy benefits Spectrum Customers!!!!
Not you too!
by Sunshine and me on 2019/03/11 20:18
If enjoying McAfee across all my devices. I find it to be good (One can never really know how protected we are especially with the free versions). Anyhow I’ve trusted it’s VPN. As of today I find I can not use it without upgrading to the paid version. I’m disappointed. McAfee is offered full blown, all the amenities, free when using certain INP’s. Just plan old disappointed. Many awesome apps I have enjoyed have gone to subscription. I wonder is it the developers or is it Apple.
Love the features but
by chakraheart on 2019/02/03 18:14
Hey guys can you please add spyware protection to the app or have the option to pay for it. Something like so no one can download spyware apps or be able to detect one. Other than that , love the features! Anti theft camera. Sends last location. & can back up contacts. So you never lose them. I switched from lookout to Mcafee and I don’t regret it!! Thanks for your time if you read my review !
Easy to install, share and use
by PJQ18 on 2019/04/08 02:29
This app has been great, easy to install, review features and updates. When I go into a new location the program automatically checks the internet and tells me if it is safe or not. I have also used this one purchase on other iPhones, tablet and laptops.
Safe Web keeps shutting off
by Uradip on 2019/01/10 14:27
I am giving this 3 stars primarily because I just began using it and also the safe web setting has to be reset everyday at least one or two times. You would think that once it is set that it would remain on all the time. Also, it would be nice to know what this app is actually doing by providing a scan analysis after it runs. Always enjoyed the McAfee products when I was working.
Mcafee wifi guard
by mc14352645367 on 2019/07/29 17:48
I got the app on my phone and upgraded to add wifi guard protection. The wifi guard never worked, couldn’t get to turn on. Tried the online support and never got a helpful response. Called the support number and it wouldn’t go through, just hung up on me. When i finally did get to talk to someone there i was told that the wifi guard was not one of their products and i would need to go to where i bought the wifi guard for a refund. I did purchase it from their app so i don’t know what to do now. My advise is to stay away from this product!
Is it doing anything?
by happytobesecure on 2019/01/16 17:43
App is ok, but I have no idea if it’s doing anything. The interface doesn’t tell me if I’m current with my subscription or which type and level of protection I have. There are links for useful tools, so good there. I just don’t get why this app is needed or if it’s particularly useful overall. Maybe it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem to do much besides take up an app space on my phone. Please send me info on how it can be more beneficial.
Wonderful!!
by Time-Travelerxx on 2018/09/07 07:21
My husband bought a new HP computer with Windows 10 and the gentleman that saved and loaded what he could from our old hard drive also installed a trial of your product. We loved it so much we purchased it and it covered our wireless phones, my laptop and my iPad!! We feel quite secure knowing Mcafee is at work.
Really good antivirus
by bigger chugus on 2019/02/08 04:21
Recently I got a virus and I was worried so I typed in virus in the App Store and clicked the first one which was this did the scan I had 2 threats and ignored one because my private info password was very strong. The one threat I did was my phone was not up to date but it was but I updated it anyways and my phone was back to normal
Review to McAfee
by miss my apps lady on 2018/09/07 00:04
I think you are middle f the road for iPhones need. But I am grateful for what McAfee does offer. Today I have had my WiFi and web search turned and not by me. I have call coming thru Facebook from people I don't know. I have an added gmail account on my phone. So I am lacking in security. Tho I don't want to sound as if I am critiquing. I just wish we could have really added protection so we could use our smartphones without fear of nasty and cowardly hackers. I feel they are cowards because they hide like unintelligent species of something other than mankind. So that's my opinion for what it's worth, if anything. As a company I pray you go forward and make great strides in the field of security for all internet devices. Thank you for the opportunity to speak.
safe web surfing?
by challenged in Georgia on 2019/08/28 10:27
I was under the impression that a VPN allowed you to use public wi-fi and your information would be kept hidden. Several times, I have gotten a message saying the site is unsecured and to get off immediately. Is this not what the VPN is supposed to protect me from? Just telling me to leave the connection kind of defeats the purpose. Is there something I don’t understand? I do like the scans it does of my phone security.
doesn’t do anything
by Henry3436 on 2019/08/22 03:45
the only “protection” this app provides is making sure my phone is updating and continuously telling me to disconnect from a wifi because it has no password. I personally hate the wifi protection since it only uses your hardware id, so if i connect to a wifi system that is in an airport, school, or some similar type of wifi, it will forget my id, and that renders the “trust wifi ” useless. But the computer software is much better, so i give 2 stars.
Does reflect validpurchases
by Me&Me&youtoo on 2019/06/30 05:27
Doesn’t reflect purchases made even though credit card is charged and when you finally get to manage my account you see that you have already paid, and sometimes it appears you may have paid twice. This should be fixed so that the constant reminders to upgrade can be safely ignored. It makes me wonder if the app is really scanning anything at all?
Bad subscription
by Too good to be true or not on 2019/01/31 15:22
When I purchased this app I thought I was getting the latest updated program, but it was about 3-weeks later I got a notification that my system was outdated. Then it also said I can pay more $ for the updated antivirus program. So why sell something old when it was going to be revised? Is it all about the $ or is Macafee really trying to protect my system? Things that make you say hmmm!
