by kvdthvdhkcsfjncdd on 2020/07/31 23:02
I got a message saying that my device had been hacked, and it recommended a random app, so I installed the app but it didn’t do anything. So then I looked in the App Store and saw mcafee and downloaded it, and it immediately worked and took care of the problem

This app is bull for my phone
by elimochi2020 on 2020/07/30 15:35
Got it; started out good; then glitches came. I got problems using apps like Etsy, Duolingo; Pinterest; and Grubhub. And I “scanned” it and it said there was no virus and my phone was okay. I turn off the VPN and everything is back to normal Like - if there’s a virus I would rather it send me a notification instead of blocking it out. Please fix
I’m so confused

Safe web
by Rocky557 on 2020/07/23 11:35
I think my device is being protected, but to only find out that safe web, and vpn keeps turning itself off. Every time I turn it on, then close that window it automatically turns off. I’ve been using McAfee for years, but this one has been the worse one yet. And it’s probably going to be my last.

It’s very very difficult to add on to other devices. You need to make it easier or I’ll use a different security program next time.

Prevented new I phone from downloading from back up
by Droppingthe weight on 2020/07/18 14:51
My phone was stolen in Milan. When I came home and got my replacement I-phone 11. I went through two sprints hours with Verizon trying to figure out why my back up version wasn’t downloading into my new phone. Finally went to a city Mac store. Within 5 minutes they identified that the This app was blocking the download. They removed it and my phone restored without problems. Cancelled my subscription
No
by Kfjdbd on 2020/07/18 09:51
It’s only great if you can pay for a subscription. Otherwise basically useless for me.
I AM NEVER USING THIS APP AGAIN

How to cancel subscription
by hvitkanin55555 on 2020/07/16 13:07
I would say it’s a well designed app. However, I no longer want to use the app but I am not able to cancel the subscription. The subscription button under menu is frozen. Any way to figure it out?

Safe web
by Gnimu77 on 2020/07/15 04:16
The safe web button does not work. Have tried to turn it on numerous times with no success. That’s the reason why I bought this antivirus. So far, it only checks my WiFi. Frustrated with McAfee for not honoring their word.
Doesn’t work

The protection is great
by Kawiigirl119 on 2020/07/14 18:36
A lot of times I want one of the things to get a app when it didn’t come out yet, so it tells me to do this and I can get the app before the app comes out on iOS. I do not want a virus so this makes me feel more safe, and more protected. It’s nice to know that they will make sure no viruses or hacks. It downloaded very quickly like 3 seconds and it is easy to start.
Consumer satisfaction complaint;
by ccumton on 2020/07/13 04:50
Could include WiFi network protection with the purchase the mcfee mobile security app. plan the uses cell phone network settings . Also I purchased a $9.99plus right after purchasing the $2.99 plan, maybe two day between each other and although I was charged for both, I only got the services of the 2.99 plan I purchased.

Great Mobile Protection
by kerrickmc on 2020/07/09 16:09
In this day and age I must have protection for my phone that cost over well over $1,000 dollars and I use more as a total communication and information and entertainment portal than just as a “phone”. The constant threat of apps that are great to use but are in existence only to gather information off of my phone or to perform other nefarious acts through access to my phone and basically to me and my information is exhausting. To even think I could begin to address myself is ridiculous and would see me and most people just running away and starting to watch Netflix or TikTok to just forget about or distract myself from thinking about. I delegate at work to specialists. I know Mcafee from the years and years they have protected my computers. I choose to have the best protection on my great iPhone. 5 star protection from a 5 star company in this highly dangerous age. Thank you Mcafee

I have been looking for an app to do free scans without any of that sign up stuff, and I’m glad I found one. I got one of those “your phone has been infected! You have X amount of time or it will delete your data! Download our security app!” Messages. Most of the time those are trying to steal your data, if it’s a pop-up on a browser. Anyways, thanks for making this! Looks like I’m all good for now.
Substandard.

Big telemarketing SCAM: Beware!
by HawaiiFiveOguy on 2020/07/06 14:21
I downloaded this app thinking it would be great protection for my iPhones and iPads. As I proceeded to inquire about the in-app purchase to upgrade, WOW — what a HUGE scam! All I tried to ask in their “chat” session was how many devices are covered by the purchase? Some obnoxious third-world moron then asked for all my personal data, I started feeling uncomfortable, and I cut off the chat although he never answered my simple question. Think that ended it? NOOOOOO!!! In one week, I’ve received 68 calls so far — 68 — wanting to “follow up” on the discontinued chat! Luckily, I’ve blocked them, BUT THEY STILL KEEP COMING! I deleted the app, but these criminals KEEP CALLING!!! Please, Apple, do something about these telemarketing ghouls at McAfee! This is totally wrong! I’d never buy this app now, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!!!

Unable to connect to VPN in My IPhone- update
by camila7555 on 2020/07/03 19:02
This all happened since the last upgrade. I clicked on the app. It says “upgrade “, you click on it and nothing happens . I saw the comment to go to general and then profile to change this. However, the general tab of my phone doesn’t show that option :(. Update 7/2/00 -This is beyond upsetting!!! I am calling customer support and being told that although I have been a customer for years with VPN connection, your representative makes Norm out of the Philippines call center told me that my account doesn’t have VPN included. That is a bunch of BS!! I have always had VPN until I did your last application upgrade.

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
Great app! Issues with Apple CarPlay/VPN. Help?
by jbabyvalentino on 2020/03/01 18:31
Great app, but I am experiencing issues. I have an iPhone 11 and have the latest version of iOS installed. I am having issues with the McAfee VPN/Web Guard and my Apple CarPlay radio. While everything works fine with the radio (connected via USB), I cannot use Siri if the VPN/Web Guard feature is on. It is extremely inconvenient to have to turn on and turn off the VPN. Especially when I enter a public place where I have previously connected to WiFi and my phone auto-connects to the WiFi connection. An example of my main issue would be something like this: I am driving in my vehicle and I decide to use Siri with the voice control button in my 2020 Kia. I say, “Please call Dad.” Siri will show on my CarPlay radio that it is trying to process my request and then states that, “Siri requires an internet connection.” I am using my Sprint 4G data the entire time while I am driving and the VPN is on. If I turn it off, no problems. I enjoy this app and I am paying $9.99 monthly for it. I would hate to search for other alternatives. Could you please tell me if you know anyways I can resolve this issue? And if not, could McAfee possibly look into fixing this? I’ve searched online and I have seen that many others are experiencing the same problem. Thank you!
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....

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.
So Far So Good

I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to give my approval for McAfee after having issues with malware and viruses on my company laptop. Working remotely opened my laptop to threats I hadn’t paid much attention to before. I’m not certain how it happened, but going to my company’s website somehow triggered an attack and prompted me to download a fishy looking mock-up of the “new browser” (misspellings was the first red flag). I didn’t proceed, but trying to back out of the browser even was problematic. Thanks to my renewal of the McAfee Anti-virus and Protection Software, all I had to do was initiate a scan and it quarantined and removed the threat within 15 minutes. Unfortunately, the company website is still doing the same problematic prompting and will automatically trigger the process all over again and I have to run the scan again, but I believe that has something to do with the web domain more than with my McAfee protected system.
Great Mobile Protection
by kerrickmc on 2020/07/09 16:09
In this day and age I must have protection for my phone that cost over well over $1,000 dollars and I use more as a total communication and information and entertainment portal than just as a “phone”. The constant threat of apps that are great to use but are in existence only to gather information off of my phone or to perform other nefarious acts through access to my phone and basically to me and my information is exhausting. To even think I could begin to address myself is ridiculous and would see me and most people just running away and starting to watch Netflix or TikTok to just forget about or distract myself from thinking about. I delegate at work to specialists. I know Mcafee from the years and years they have protected my computers. I choose to have the best protection on my great iPhone. 5 star protection from a 5 star company in this highly dangerous age. Thank you Mcafee
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.
Media vault poorly designed
by Uber Pool Hater on 2020/05/20 23:06
I know media vault might not be the main feature of this app, but it’s currently poorly designed and difficult to use. When importing photos, if you want to choose recent photos, you have to choose the “Recent” folder which contains all photos in the phone. This takes forever to load, since the app seems to load all photos in the phone at once, when you really just want it to load the most recent few. As a result, to import photos into the app, you need to create a separate folder of the photos you are trying to import, then open that new folder in the app so the app only loads the photos you are trying to import. The idea itself is great, a simple local media vault with no useless and potentially risky features such as cloud syncing. Most of the dedicated media vault apps are offered by random individual developers and can hardly be trusted. Thus a trusted name like McAfee is uniquely positioned to implement this simple feature, and it’s sad that the feature right now is so poorly executed. Looking forward to improvements!
Great app but a few issues
by C00chieSlay3r9000 on 2020/05/26 03:00
Very good app for saving things to be protected. But there are a few weird things with this app. 1) The alarm is disturbing. You guys could’ve changed it to something else than a child screaming. Maybe a high-pitched alarm sound or a option where you can choose one. 2) Media vault is annoying. It says you have to delete every single photo on your device to import photos. It’s annoying for people who like to keep images (like me), just make it optional (like saying “Keep and Import” or “Delete and Import”). Another thing about it is that there is a notification that’s just permanently there saying to delete photos if you denied access. You cannot get rid of it until you delete your photos. (Extra Idea) make a password storage (like media storage) but it has passwords instead (maybe add a option to import from another service like dashlane?). Great app overall but should fix their app a little more.
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!

by ydoumkmedothis on 2019/03/28 15:16
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
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.
Avoid at all cost
by NoodleinUrMom on 2020/06/03 04:11
I just spent 2 hours and 50 minutes of my life dealing with mediocrity and ineptitude. I am being very nice when I only use those two words. The customer service for account management is so bad that you feel like you’re in an episode of Punkd. It’s so frustrating that McAfee may actually kill me with a heart attack. You are sent to India where their employees are very kind and try to help but have less knowledge of the product than the consumer. It’s not their fault but the fault of the CEO CFO COO at McAfee Headquarters in Santa Clara, CA. They outsource to save money not realizing that we would pay a higher price for, at minimum, decent customer support. It is absolutely absurd that purchasing a subscription could be so difficult. It is unacceptable and i will never do business with this company again. I advise you to save yourself from losing years off your life by avoiding this pathetically managed organization.
Great app for security!
by Carrissa Rowland on 2020/05/17 23:54
Keep in mind that this app is NOT a VPN. But it will still keep your security. What it does is it scans your phone/tablet etc for anything that can be dangerous for a virus and such. I have not had any issues with it and it scans your device often reminding you if anything has happened. And I think that this app is a little TO protective because I had it scan once and it told me that I needed to update my phone to the latest version for “the new security”. While that is not really a complaint it is just saying that this app while tell you if anything even resembles a virus or anything. So yeah, great app!
Always Secure
by H.Rock03 on 2020/05/07 21:05
I believe McAffee is a secure and trustworthy service. However, we recently had a cell phone stolen and we had to use Google to try to tack it. McAffee should have an easy and faster way for customers to search for a lost or stolen device. Perhaps an option available in the app so on a different device under the same security, we could have taken faster steps at locating our stolen device. I’m not sure how you could go about doing that but I’m sure it’s possible these days with technology. Also, I am having issues adding files and photos to my Media Vault.
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.
This USED TO BE A GREAT APP
by Info broker on 2020/03/24 04:22
I initially had the live safe product. It was great, and it also covered 5 devices, then the laws changed and mcafee could no longer do some of the scans and many other features...But, all in all it was okay ( 3+) or so. Then my phone carrier switched security apps, from lookout ( I think) to mcAfee, but a different product. Since I had bought a plan elsewhere, already, that was better , I wanted that. Nope, this app, took over, crashed phone, locked up,froze ...it literally over took my product, which was better, instead of what metro forced down my throat. Nothing is included, in this version, it says free, but I am paying for it ,2x, 1 I can’t use with my phone, and 1my phone carrier bills extra for, that you cannot remove , or you can’t insure phone. So , I not going to upgrade and pay more for nothing
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.

Great app but...
by Redraiders0433 on 2020/05/22 04:22
This is a great app and definetly worth having on your phone for protection and its very simple and easy to manage but not sure what’s going on with the app lately where turning on “safe web” is not working. Even after I tap on the icon to turn safe web on multiple times it still wont register it as on-and at times when the icon successfully turns green to mark the safe web as on-once I go back to the home screen it still shows as safe web off.. Not sure how to fix this, I’ve restarted my phone a few times and still no changes...if there is a way to fix this bug that would be great
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 .
I consider you one of the best
by fresget on 2020/04/05 21:10
But I had you in my laptop and Mobil till my husband decided to hack every device imaginable and I cannot keep him and his sister from getting in my network that’s how they remotely connect she works in engineering phone company makes it easy I pray to God you can block them from my network as well as my emails I cannot open a Facebook account cause they managed to give a big and close my accounts my brother had past away they stole all my memories from him he died of Cancer ... that was the most painful thing they could have done but God will do for me what I wouldn’t want to do to them ... I hope your app is well worth it I need protection more then ever...
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
Amazing helped me out ALOT!
by Wolfy. K. on 2020/06/17 19:05
I downloaded this on too iPads I first checked on this everything was clear and fine then I checked on a second iPad, and it says that something was wrong and stuff like that with my WiFi it’s not Secure. I started freaking out I kept scanning and scanning it just kept showing the same thing. Then I realized it showed me what to do to help secure it so I did the steps. And checked again everything was clear! This helped so much I would of been lost without this amazing app! Definitely would recommend.
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👍🏾!!!
Big telemarketing SCAM: Beware!
by HawaiiFiveOguy on 2020/07/06 14:21
I downloaded this app thinking it would be great protection for my iPhones and iPads. As I proceeded to inquire about the in-app purchase to upgrade, WOW — what a HUGE scam! All I tried to ask in their “chat” session was how many devices are covered by the purchase? Some obnoxious third-world moron then asked for all my personal data, I started feeling uncomfortable, and I cut off the chat although he never answered my simple question. Think that ended it? NOOOOOO!!! In one week, I’ve received 68 calls so far — 68 — wanting to “follow up” on the discontinued chat! Luckily, I’ve blocked them, BUT THEY STILL KEEP COMING! I deleted the app, but these criminals KEEP CALLING!!! Please, Apple, do something about these telemarketing ghouls at McAfee! This is totally wrong! I’d never buy this app now, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!!!
Why do we need to pay
by we should not pay on 2020/04/02 01:08
Why do we need to pay so are phone are safe I have looked at a lot of app and every one I need to pay for I should not have to pay for my phone safety I get that this is going to help that why I put one star but I’m not shore if I can trust this app even with the reviews and the rating people should not pay for there phones safety because since I have to pay or a free trial that tell me that I won’t work and you want money or that if I want to have my money for needed thing I have to pay for my phone safety that why I’m righting this I believe that if I put this do that you can have full stars and phones can be safe this is why I will not get or use a app to protect my hone that I need to pay for thank you to any one how reads this.
Mistakenly installed under my name. Need to uninstall

I need to uninstall it under my name—Louise Baumgart. Mistake I need it to be installed on my device under daughter-in-law’s name, Kimberly Baumgart, as she already paid for it and is sharing it with me asa family member, which is allowed. I am 77yr. Old with limited tech knowledge or skills, due to poor eyesight and hearing. If you could please help me straighten this out. My son, John Baumgart and wife Kim are contacting you about this. Help, please. Thanks!—Louise Baumgart Technology-challenged
No customer service that’s helpful
by Bert Hannah on 2019/10/27 13:02
The app works great until you have a problem. When I tried to contact customer service, the person that answered was hard to communicate with because English was not there primary language. I ask for someone in the USA and was told they couldn’t do that. The second call I did get someone in the USA but they couldn’t help and needed to transfer me to a supervisor, I ask to please only put me with someone in the USA. I could barely understand them because they once again had very bad language and hung up out of frustration. I then tried using social media (Facebook) and did get a reply the next day, FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY. So now I’m paying for a service I can’t use and McAfee really doesn’t care. PLEASE READ ALL THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS SERVICE. Hopefully this will help anyone considering this app. Personally, I have gave up. Update, October 27th now. Still not getting the service I purchased. Don’t get this app. They will take the money, sent automated replies and not fix the problem. Do a search for top VPN, you won’t see this even on the list. Much less top 100......
Hackers attack
by blanmed on 2020/05/31 22:57
I love this app. I love that it can locate my cell phone at any given time. But for some reason hackers have evaded inside this app and my cell phone. I get notifications but when look to read them they are not there. I am glad that you have the locations of my cell phone listed in your archives . That will protect me. . I am grateful. But I am not allowed to use my internet on my cell phone whenever I want to . Someone at least more than 3 persons text and make calls on my cell phone . People receive text and calls on my cell phone. When texting, which my cell phone should be already use to my writing habits. Sounds nothing like the way I speak or even how I text. Your app has been breached. Please help me get control back of my cell phone. And also of my PRIVACY which has been breached. Really hope you can fix this issue for I trusted in your name and App. BM2019 Update: Thank you for your quick response. I will contact support .
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
Love it!
by 😜silly girl 🤣 on 2019/09/29 20:11
So a little bit ago I got a notification(not from this app) that said I had 39 viruses! I couldn’t believe it, I shut my phone off and turned it back on, went to settings and cleared all safari history(I got the notification while on safari). After that I downloaded this app to see if it worked and it did. I am now using this app as to not have that same problem again and so far it’s worked. Thank you!
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.
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.
Can’t “turn on wifi guard “
by 3769tcp on 2019/11/09 18:35
When I am on a website that app says is not secure it says to “turn on wifi Guard “ butthere are only two options “trust the website “ or “disconnect “. There is no Wifi Guard option anywhere. However when I am on the unsecured website I can turn on “safe web” which then allows me to turn on “VPN” in the iPhone Settings. It still says the website isn’t secure and to turn on wifi guard.
Unable to connect to VPN in My IPhone- update
by camila7555 on 2020/07/03 19:02
This all happened since the last upgrade. I clicked on the app. It says “upgrade “, you click on it and nothing happens . I saw the comment to go to general and then profile to change this. However, the general tab of my phone doesn’t show that option :(. Update 7/2/00 -This is beyond upsetting!!! I am calling customer support and being told that although I have been a customer for years with VPN connection, your representative makes Norm out of the Philippines call center told me that my account doesn’t have VPN included. That is a bunch of BS!! I have always had VPN until I did your last application upgrade.
Good App, But
by Mermanda57 on 2019/10/28 14:01
I don’t need this app anymore. How do I stop paying for it?? I have dug around to find out where I can stop paying for it and get rid of it, but there is nothing. HELP!! UPDATE: They responded with detailed instructions on how to cancel my subscription, so thank you, guys! Like I said before, this is a really good app, very helpful to remind you to turn off your WiFi when in unsecure networks. And now that I’ve been contacted, I appreciate them even more.
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?
Finally!
by (Orca)stra on 2020/07/08 06:38
I have been looking for an app to do free scans without any of that sign up stuff, and I’m glad I found one. I got one of those “your phone has been infected! You have X amount of time or it will delete your data! Download our security app!” Messages. Most of the time those are trying to steal your data, if it’s a pop-up on a browser. Anyways, thanks for making this! Looks like I’m all good for now.
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.
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
McAfee is the safest
by Old Man Mitch on 2019/12/06 22:36
I’m a senior citizen who has been taught how to use today’s technology by my children.. If you want true safety from all the morons that will not work for a living and would rather steal your information for profit then I highly suggest that you look into this safety measure.. Their customer service is absolutely stellar no long waits no jumping through hoops very easy to use for us old folks . I have a son who is made his fortune in Silicon Valley and he suggest that I use McAfee which I intend to for all my devices as well as my families: . A special thank you to the customer service department walk me step-by-step through the process of securing all of my and my wife’s devices. Thank you McAfee for the peace of mind you have given me.. You are very much appreciated
Breakdown of browsing services
by prad884 on 2020/03/12 18:01
As of late, I’ve noticed a general breakdown in app/browsing functions when I am connected to the VPN. It seems it breaks the regular function of many apps, e.g. streaming services, weather, etc, and the only way to be able to use such apps is to disconnect from the VPN. I’ve used Safe Mobile Browsing VPN for close to 6 months now, and up until the last month, it was working fine. But recently it seems as it breaks the regular function of apps. Any response to this would be much appreciated
BEST EVER
by Trish Borelli on 2019/12/01 06:51
This app is included with my protection package that I have with my ISP which protects my home computer, Laptop and network and also my smartphone. Is a great app I have it set to automatically scan my devices and network and it notifies me after scanning my devices and network. Thankfully it has NEVER found any issues and all of my devices run smoothly With McAfee I feel comfortable and safe that they will protect me devices. Thank you McAfee.

I got a message saying that my device had been hacked, and it recommended a random app, so I installed the app but it didn’t do anything. So then I looked in the App Store and saw mcafee and downloaded it, and it immediately worked and took care of the problem

This app is bull for my phone
by elimochi2020 on 2020/07/30 15:35
Got it; started out good; then glitches came. I got problems using apps like Etsy, Duolingo; Pinterest; and Grubhub. And I “scanned” it and it said there was no virus and my phone was okay. I turn off the VPN and everything is back to normal Like - if there’s a virus I would rather it send me a notification instead of blocking it out. Please fix
I’m so confused
by Mint latte on 2020/07/30 14:49

Can not figure out how to cancel subscription. It’s not listed on my subscriptions in my iPhone settings under my Apple ID. Can’t find it on the app nor on their website. That’s ridiculous.

Safe web
by Rocky557 on 2020/07/23 11:35
I think my device is being protected, but to only find out that safe web, and vpn keeps turning itself off. Every time I turn it on, then close that window it automatically turns off. I’ve been using McAfee for years, but this one has been the worse one yet. And it’s probably going to be my last.

It’s very very difficult to add on to other devices. You need to make it easier or I’ll use a different security program next time.

Prevented new I phone from downloading from back up
by Droppingthe weight on 2020/07/18 14:51
My phone was stolen in Milan. When I came home and got my replacement I-phone 11. I went through two sprints hours with Verizon trying to figure out why my back up version wasn’t downloading into my new phone. Finally went to a city Mac store. Within 5 minutes they identified that the This app was blocking the download. They removed it and my phone restored without problems. Cancelled my subscription
No
by Kfjdbd on 2020/07/18 09:51
It’s only great if you can pay for a subscription. Otherwise basically useless for me.
I AM NEVER USING THIS APP AGAIN

by hvitkanin55555 on 2020/07/16 13:07

Safe web
by Gnimu77 on 2020/07/15 04:16
The safe web button does not work. Have tried to turn it on numerous times with no success. That’s the reason why I bought this antivirus. So far, it only checks my WiFi. Frustrated with McAfee for not honoring their word.
Doesn’t work
by Asleep2001 on 2020/07/14 18:40
The safe web does not work. Of no value.
The protection is great
by Kawiigirl119 on 2020/07/14 18:36
A lot of times I want one of the things to get a app when it didn’t come out yet, so it tells me to do this and I can get the app before the app comes out on iOS. I do not want a virus so this makes me feel more safe, and more protected. It’s nice to know that they will make sure no viruses or hacks. It downloaded very quickly like 3 seconds and it is easy to start.
Consumer satisfaction complaint;
by ccumton on 2020/07/13 04:50
Could include WiFi network protection with the purchase the mcfee mobile security app. plan the uses cell phone network settings . Also I purchased a $9.99plus right after purchasing the $2.99 plan, maybe two day between each other and although I was charged for both, I only got the services of the 2.99 plan I purchased.

Great Mobile Protection
by kerrickmc on 2020/07/09 16:09
In this day and age I must have protection for my phone that cost over well over $1,000 dollars and I use more as a total communication and information and entertainment portal than just as a “phone”. The constant threat of apps that are great to use but are in existence only to gather information off of my phone or to perform other nefarious acts through access to my phone and basically to me and my information is exhausting. To even think I could begin to address myself is ridiculous and would see me and most people just running away and starting to watch Netflix or TikTok to just forget about or distract myself from thinking about. I delegate at work to specialists. I know Mcafee from the years and years they have protected my computers. I choose to have the best protection on my great iPhone. 5 star protection from a 5 star company in this highly dangerous age. Thank you Mcafee

by (Orca)stra on 2020/07/08 06:38
I have been looking for an app to do free scans without any of that sign up stuff, and I’m glad I found one. I got one of those “your phone has been infected! You have X amount of time or it will delete your data! Download our security app!” Messages. Most of the time those are trying to steal your data, if it’s a pop-up on a browser. Anyways, thanks for making this! Looks like I’m all good for now.
Substandard.

Big telemarketing SCAM: Beware!
by HawaiiFiveOguy on 2020/07/06 14:21
I downloaded this app thinking it would be great protection for my iPhones and iPads. As I proceeded to inquire about the in-app purchase to upgrade, WOW — what a HUGE scam! All I tried to ask in their “chat” session was how many devices are covered by the purchase? Some obnoxious third-world moron then asked for all my personal data, I started feeling uncomfortable, and I cut off the chat although he never answered my simple question. Think that ended it? NOOOOOO!!! In one week, I’ve received 68 calls so far — 68 — wanting to “follow up” on the discontinued chat! Luckily, I’ve blocked them, BUT THEY STILL KEEP COMING! I deleted the app, but these criminals KEEP CALLING!!! Please, Apple, do something about these telemarketing ghouls at McAfee! This is totally wrong! I’d never buy this app now, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!!!

This all happened since the last upgrade. I clicked on the app. It says “upgrade “, you click on it and nothing happens . I saw the comment to go to general and then profile to change this. However, the general tab of my phone doesn’t show that option :(. Update 7/2/00 -This is beyond upsetting!!! I am calling customer support and being told that although I have been a customer for years with VPN connection, your representative makes Norm out of the Philippines call center told me that my account doesn’t have VPN included. That is a bunch of BS!! I have always had VPN until I did your last application upgrade.
Excellent

Working great!
Confused
by you stimk on 2020/07/02 09:51
Staying in a motel with VPN on, app says WiFi is not secure, turn on WiFi Guard. I thought that was the whole point of having a VPN!!!! What and where is “WiFi Guard”?
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
Great app! Issues with Apple CarPlay/VPN. Help?
by jbabyvalentino on 2020/03/01 18:31
Great app, but I am experiencing issues. I have an iPhone 11 and have the latest version of iOS installed. I am having issues with the McAfee VPN/Web Guard and my Apple CarPlay radio. While everything works fine with the radio (connected via USB), I cannot use Siri if the VPN/Web Guard feature is on. It is extremely inconvenient to have to turn on and turn off the VPN. Especially when I enter a public place where I have previously connected to WiFi and my phone auto-connects to the WiFi connection. An example of my main issue would be something like this: I am driving in my vehicle and I decide to use Siri with the voice control button in my 2020 Kia. I say, “Please call Dad.” Siri will show on my CarPlay radio that it is trying to process my request and then states that, “Siri requires an internet connection.” I am using my Sprint 4G data the entire time while I am driving and the VPN is on. If I turn it off, no problems. I enjoy this app and I am paying $9.99 monthly for it. I would hate to search for other alternatives. Could you please tell me if you know anyways I can resolve this issue? And if not, could McAfee possibly look into fixing this? I’ve searched online and I have seen that many others are experiencing the same problem. Thank you!
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.
So Far So Good
by Cap_Mag on 2019/10/29 21:33
I don’t usually write reviews, but I felt compelled to give my approval for McAfee after having issues with malware and viruses on my company laptop. Working remotely opened my laptop to threats I hadn’t paid much attention to before. I’m not certain how it happened, but going to my company’s website somehow triggered an attack and prompted me to download a fishy looking mock-up of the “new browser” (misspellings was the first red flag). I didn’t proceed, but trying to back out of the browser even was problematic. Thanks to my renewal of the McAfee Anti-virus and Protection Software, all I had to do was initiate a scan and it quarantined and removed the threat within 15 minutes. Unfortunately, the company website is still doing the same problematic prompting and will automatically trigger the process all over again and I have to run the scan again, but I believe that has something to do with the web domain more than with my McAfee protected system.
Great Mobile Protection
by kerrickmc on 2020/07/09 16:09
In this day and age I must have protection for my phone that cost over well over $1,000 dollars and I use more as a total communication and information and entertainment portal than just as a “phone”. The constant threat of apps that are great to use but are in existence only to gather information off of my phone or to perform other nefarious acts through access to my phone and basically to me and my information is exhausting. To even think I could begin to address myself is ridiculous and would see me and most people just running away and starting to watch Netflix or TikTok to just forget about or distract myself from thinking about. I delegate at work to specialists. I know Mcafee from the years and years they have protected my computers. I choose to have the best protection on my great iPhone. 5 star protection from a 5 star company in this highly dangerous age. Thank you Mcafee
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.
Media vault poorly designed
by Uber Pool Hater on 2020/05/20 23:06
I know media vault might not be the main feature of this app, but it’s currently poorly designed and difficult to use. When importing photos, if you want to choose recent photos, you have to choose the “Recent” folder which contains all photos in the phone. This takes forever to load, since the app seems to load all photos in the phone at once, when you really just want it to load the most recent few. As a result, to import photos into the app, you need to create a separate folder of the photos you are trying to import, then open that new folder in the app so the app only loads the photos you are trying to import. The idea itself is great, a simple local media vault with no useless and potentially risky features such as cloud syncing. Most of the dedicated media vault apps are offered by random individual developers and can hardly be trusted. Thus a trusted name like McAfee is uniquely positioned to implement this simple feature, and it’s sad that the feature right now is so poorly executed. Looking forward to improvements!
Great app but a few issues
by C00chieSlay3r9000 on 2020/05/26 03:00
Very good app for saving things to be protected. But there are a few weird things with this app. 1) The alarm is disturbing. You guys could’ve changed it to something else than a child screaming. Maybe a high-pitched alarm sound or a option where you can choose one. 2) Media vault is annoying. It says you have to delete every single photo on your device to import photos. It’s annoying for people who like to keep images (like me), just make it optional (like saying “Keep and Import” or “Delete and Import”). Another thing about it is that there is a notification that’s just permanently there saying to delete photos if you denied access. You cannot get rid of it until you delete your photos. (Extra Idea) make a password storage (like media storage) but it has passwords instead (maybe add a option to import from another service like dashlane?). Great app overall but should fix their app a little more.
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!

by ydoumkmedothis on 2019/03/28 15:16
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
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.
Avoid at all cost
by NoodleinUrMom on 2020/06/03 04:11
I just spent 2 hours and 50 minutes of my life dealing with mediocrity and ineptitude. I am being very nice when I only use those two words. The customer service for account management is so bad that you feel like you’re in an episode of Punkd. It’s so frustrating that McAfee may actually kill me with a heart attack. You are sent to India where their employees are very kind and try to help but have less knowledge of the product than the consumer. It’s not their fault but the fault of the CEO CFO COO at McAfee Headquarters in Santa Clara, CA. They outsource to save money not realizing that we would pay a higher price for, at minimum, decent customer support. It is absolutely absurd that purchasing a subscription could be so difficult. It is unacceptable and i will never do business with this company again. I advise you to save yourself from losing years off your life by avoiding this pathetically managed organization.
Great app for security!
by Carrissa Rowland on 2020/05/17 23:54
Keep in mind that this app is NOT a VPN. But it will still keep your security. What it does is it scans your phone/tablet etc for anything that can be dangerous for a virus and such. I have not had any issues with it and it scans your device often reminding you if anything has happened. And I think that this app is a little TO protective because I had it scan once and it told me that I needed to update my phone to the latest version for “the new security”. While that is not really a complaint it is just saying that this app while tell you if anything even resembles a virus or anything. So yeah, great app!
Always Secure
by H.Rock03 on 2020/05/07 21:05
I believe McAffee is a secure and trustworthy service. However, we recently had a cell phone stolen and we had to use Google to try to tack it. McAffee should have an easy and faster way for customers to search for a lost or stolen device. Perhaps an option available in the app so on a different device under the same security, we could have taken faster steps at locating our stolen device. I’m not sure how you could go about doing that but I’m sure it’s possible these days with technology. Also, I am having issues adding files and photos to my Media Vault.
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.
This USED TO BE A GREAT APP
by Info broker on 2020/03/24 04:22
I initially had the live safe product. It was great, and it also covered 5 devices, then the laws changed and mcafee could no longer do some of the scans and many other features...But, all in all it was okay ( 3+) or so. Then my phone carrier switched security apps, from lookout ( I think) to mcAfee, but a different product. Since I had bought a plan elsewhere, already, that was better , I wanted that. Nope, this app, took over, crashed phone, locked up,froze ...it literally over took my product, which was better, instead of what metro forced down my throat. Nothing is included, in this version, it says free, but I am paying for it ,2x, 1 I can’t use with my phone, and 1my phone carrier bills extra for, that you cannot remove , or you can’t insure phone. So , I not going to upgrade and pay more for nothing
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.

Pay the year, save 20 hours or more of your time! Do it
Great app but...
by Redraiders0433 on 2020/05/22 04:22
This is a great app and definetly worth having on your phone for protection and its very simple and easy to manage but not sure what’s going on with the app lately where turning on “safe web” is not working. Even after I tap on the icon to turn safe web on multiple times it still wont register it as on-and at times when the icon successfully turns green to mark the safe web as on-once I go back to the home screen it still shows as safe web off.. Not sure how to fix this, I’ve restarted my phone a few times and still no changes...if there is a way to fix this bug that would be great
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 .
I consider you one of the best
by fresget on 2020/04/05 21:10
But I had you in my laptop and Mobil till my husband decided to hack every device imaginable and I cannot keep him and his sister from getting in my network that’s how they remotely connect she works in engineering phone company makes it easy I pray to God you can block them from my network as well as my emails I cannot open a Facebook account cause they managed to give a big and close my accounts my brother had past away they stole all my memories from him he died of Cancer ... that was the most painful thing they could have done but God will do for me what I wouldn’t want to do to them ... I hope your app is well worth it I need protection more then ever...
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
Amazing helped me out ALOT!
by Wolfy. K. on 2020/06/17 19:05
I downloaded this on too iPads I first checked on this everything was clear and fine then I checked on a second iPad, and it says that something was wrong and stuff like that with my WiFi it’s not Secure. I started freaking out I kept scanning and scanning it just kept showing the same thing. Then I realized it showed me what to do to help secure it so I did the steps. And checked again everything was clear! This helped so much I would of been lost without this amazing app! Definitely would recommend.
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👍🏾!!!
Big telemarketing SCAM: Beware!
by HawaiiFiveOguy on 2020/07/06 14:21
I downloaded this app thinking it would be great protection for my iPhones and iPads. As I proceeded to inquire about the in-app purchase to upgrade, WOW — what a HUGE scam! All I tried to ask in their “chat” session was how many devices are covered by the purchase? Some obnoxious third-world moron then asked for all my personal data, I started feeling uncomfortable, and I cut off the chat although he never answered my simple question. Think that ended it? NOOOOOO!!! In one week, I’ve received 68 calls so far — 68 — wanting to “follow up” on the discontinued chat! Luckily, I’ve blocked them, BUT THEY STILL KEEP COMING! I deleted the app, but these criminals KEEP CALLING!!! Please, Apple, do something about these telemarketing ghouls at McAfee! This is totally wrong! I’d never buy this app now, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER!!!
Why do we need to pay
by we should not pay on 2020/04/02 01:08
Why do we need to pay so are phone are safe I have looked at a lot of app and every one I need to pay for I should not have to pay for my phone safety I get that this is going to help that why I put one star but I’m not shore if I can trust this app even with the reviews and the rating people should not pay for there phones safety because since I have to pay or a free trial that tell me that I won’t work and you want money or that if I want to have my money for needed thing I have to pay for my phone safety that why I’m righting this I believe that if I put this do that you can have full stars and phones can be safe this is why I will not get or use a app to protect my hone that I need to pay for thank you to any one how reads this.
Mistakenly installed under my name. Need to uninstall

Old with limited tech knowledge or skills, due to poor eyesight and hearing. If you could please help me straighten this out. My son, John Baumgart and wife Kim are contacting you about this. Help, please. Thanks!—Louise Baumgart Technology-challenged
No customer service that’s helpful
by Bert Hannah on 2019/10/27 13:02
The app works great until you have a problem. When I tried to contact customer service, the person that answered was hard to communicate with because English was not there primary language. I ask for someone in the USA and was told they couldn’t do that. The second call I did get someone in the USA but they couldn’t help and needed to transfer me to a supervisor, I ask to please only put me with someone in the USA. I could barely understand them because they once again had very bad language and hung up out of frustration. I then tried using social media (Facebook) and did get a reply the next day, FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY. So now I’m paying for a service I can’t use and McAfee really doesn’t care. PLEASE READ ALL THE REVIEWS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP FOR THIS SERVICE. Hopefully this will help anyone considering this app. Personally, I have gave up. Update, October 27th now. Still not getting the service I purchased. Don’t get this app. They will take the money, sent automated replies and not fix the problem. Do a search for top VPN, you won’t see this even on the list. Much less top 100......
Hackers attack
by blanmed on 2020/05/31 22:57
I love this app. I love that it can locate my cell phone at any given time. But for some reason hackers have evaded inside this app and my cell phone. I get notifications but when look to read them they are not there. I am glad that you have the locations of my cell phone listed in your archives . That will protect me. . I am grateful. But I am not allowed to use my internet on my cell phone whenever I want to . Someone at least more than 3 persons text and make calls on my cell phone . People receive text and calls on my cell phone. When texting, which my cell phone should be already use to my writing habits. Sounds nothing like the way I speak or even how I text. Your app has been breached. Please help me get control back of my cell phone. And also of my PRIVACY which has been breached. Really hope you can fix this issue for I trusted in your name and App. BM2019 Update: Thank you for your quick response. I will contact support .
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
Love it!
by 😜silly girl 🤣 on 2019/09/29 20:11
So a little bit ago I got a notification(not from this app) that said I had 39 viruses! I couldn’t believe it, I shut my phone off and turned it back on, went to settings and cleared all safari history(I got the notification while on safari). After that I downloaded this app to see if it worked and it did. I am now using this app as to not have that same problem again and so far it’s worked. Thank you!
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

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.
Very efficient and effective. I have used it for years

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.
Can’t “turn on wifi guard “
by 3769tcp on 2019/11/09 18:35
When I am on a website that app says is not secure it says to “turn on wifi Guard “ butthere are only two options “trust the website “ or “disconnect “. There is no Wifi Guard option anywhere. However when I am on the unsecured website I can turn on “safe web” which then allows me to turn on “VPN” in the iPhone Settings. It still says the website isn’t secure and to turn on wifi guard.
Unable to connect to VPN in My IPhone- update
by camila7555 on 2020/07/03 19:02
This all happened since the last upgrade. I clicked on the app. It says “upgrade “, you click on it and nothing happens . I saw the comment to go to general and then profile to change this. However, the general tab of my phone doesn’t show that option :(. Update 7/2/00 -This is beyond upsetting!!! I am calling customer support and being told that although I have been a customer for years with VPN connection, your representative makes Norm out of the Philippines call center told me that my account doesn’t have VPN included. That is a bunch of BS!! I have always had VPN until I did your last application upgrade.
Good App, But
by Mermanda57 on 2019/10/28 14:01
I don’t need this app anymore. How do I stop paying for it?? I have dug around to find out where I can stop paying for it and get rid of it, but there is nothing. HELP!! UPDATE: They responded with detailed instructions on how to cancel my subscription, so thank you, guys! Like I said before, this is a really good app, very helpful to remind you to turn off your WiFi when in unsecure networks. And now that I’ve been contacted, I appreciate them even more.
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?
Finally!

I have been looking for an app to do free scans without any of that sign up stuff, and I’m glad I found one. I got one of those “your phone has been infected! You have X amount of time or it will delete your data! Download our security app!” Messages. Most of the time those are trying to steal your data, if it’s a pop-up on a browser. Anyways, thanks for making this! Looks like I’m all good for now.
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.
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
McAfee is the safest
by Old Man Mitch on 2019/12/06 22:36
I’m a senior citizen who has been taught how to use today’s technology by my children.. If you want true safety from all the morons that will not work for a living and would rather steal your information for profit then I highly suggest that you look into this safety measure.. Their customer service is absolutely stellar no long waits no jumping through hoops very easy to use for us old folks . I have a son who is made his fortune in Silicon Valley and he suggest that I use McAfee which I intend to for all my devices as well as my families: . A special thank you to the customer service department walk me step-by-step through the process of securing all of my and my wife’s devices. Thank you McAfee for the peace of mind you have given me.. You are very much appreciated
Breakdown of browsing services
by prad884 on 2020/03/12 18:01
As of late, I’ve noticed a general breakdown in app/browsing functions when I am connected to the VPN. It seems it breaks the regular function of many apps, e.g. streaming services, weather, etc, and the only way to be able to use such apps is to disconnect from the VPN. I’ve used Safe Mobile Browsing VPN for close to 6 months now, and up until the last month, it was working fine. But recently it seems as it breaks the regular function of apps. Any response to this would be much appreciated
BEST EVER
by Trish Borelli on 2019/12/01 06:51
This app is included with my protection package that I have with my ISP which protects my home computer, Laptop and network and also my smartphone. Is a great app I have it set to automatically scan my devices and network and it notifies me after scanning my devices and network. Thankfully it has NEVER found any issues and all of my devices run smoothly With McAfee I feel comfortable and safe that they will protect me devices. Thank you McAfee.
