I was more than satisfied until I was contacted by this firm in the US telling and showing me how many errors I had in my system and he had me believing him. It is the way he was actually showing me the errors that made me believe him and it cost me $250. He told me not to renew with McAfee because I would not need them anymore. I got to admit that I got suckered.
I've used McAfee's Anti-virus (and internet) software for over 10 years; I trust McAfee to protect the content of my desktop computer. Over the years, viruses and malware have been identified and safely removed from my hard-drives. Nothing more serious has occurred. Having been with them so long, I've also experienced many of their products and updates. I'm always pleased with their clean-and-simple user interface, such that the important functions can easily be performed and reported. Any notifications are appropriate and understandable, so I've never had to contact their support staff. I highly recommend McAfee!

I had previously been trying a VPN to help protect along with an antivirus software. Through advertisement I looked into McAfee as a alternative. What drew me was besides the antivirus software it offered a VPN along with it as well as protecting all of my other devices. I think that is a good deal ???. Plus knowing they have been doing this for some time now, the name being associated with computer protection and offering help if something should be of concerned gives me a good feeling of security.
I really like the ease of McAfee. Install and it monitors EVERYTHING!! McAfee notifies me if there is a site I should not visit while I am browsing. I installed it on my laptop and was then able to protect my phone and tablet. I am no longer uneasy about trying to find the end of the internet!!?? Easy peasy. Love it and definitely would recommend!
I never have to worry about my pc getting the Coronavirus or any other virus. When I couldn't download McAfee a real person walked me thru it and it was downloaded. Simple as that. I trust McAfee on all my computers, at home and at work. Thanks McAfee for keeping us safe and virus free. If I find a site that is not secure McAfee will let me know and give me the option to secure it or just exit. Awesome.
I renewed my McAfee security in December 2020 for two years. As it was a new laptop I used a new email address. I have received, up to 5 email a day to old email address, saying I am not covered. I telephoned yesterday and explained that I was fed up with receiving these messages. I was assured it would never happen again. Given a number **. Guess what. Today another 5 emails saying I was not covered and to renew immediately. They just don’t listen. I am now considering a refund. I feel this is harassment.
I bought Mcafee software (12 Month subscription) which I decided not to renew. Since that time, banners from Mcafee run across my pc screen everyday telling me to resubscribe that I have to manually close. I have tried to locate the file and remove but it is hidden. Clearly, Mcafee might be happy to protect my pc from other unwanted software attacks etc but is more than happy to build in to its download a file to attack my screen on a daily bases. Appalling behaviour from Mcafee.... I would never use them again.
I bought antivirus software online. When I tried to download it to my laptop it would not load. I contacted customer service and got no help from them at all. They gave me some number to write down but not nearly enough time to write it. I'll never buy their product again and demand a refund to the fee that will be charged to my credit card.
I have been locked out of my account and after 1 1/2 hours of being on the phone with various persons I still have no answer. They keep telling me my email address is wrong but twice within this time frame they emailed me at the address they say is wrong. How does that make sense? Now I just want out, I want a refund but you can't do that on website, you are to call another number where you will be put on hold and told you don't exist.
Like many others, I was surprised that McAfee took $127.94 from my credit card via their auto renewal scam. We have four children and six personal computers in the house. I do not have the time to keep track of them all. The $127.94 was taken for my oldest daughter's machine. This is a horrible practice and I am disappointed that they would do this, particularly during this time.
