What does McAfee Total Protection do well?
McAfee Total Protection offers very comprehensive security protection. The dashboard is very user-friendly, the reporting is informative and the automation runs seamlessly. It integrates well with browsers, indicating website safety. I've used McAfee for 2 years and would recommend to a friend.
What does McAfee Total Protection not do well?
A previous version [prior to April 2019] had a glitch in the scan reporting. It did not accurately note when the last scans were done. But at the time, I contacted customer service, who gave me the runaround and insisted it was reporting correctly. On the latest version, that issue was fixed and it is now correct.
What do you wish you had known about McAfee Total Protection before using?
I was very well informed before purchasing McAfee but was still impressed with its notification system and automated tasks. It's easy to install and integrates well without issue.
Have you used a competitor to McAfee Total Protection? If so, how does it compare?
I have used AVG and Malwarebytes but prefer McAfee.
