McAfee is a well-known brand in the field of digital protection. Its software provides all the necessary features. Its Antivirus software is extremely efficient at detaching malware from your computer or mobile device. Its iOS and Android apps are also highly rated by users. You can also add additional security by using Windows Hello or a finger print sensor, setting up alternative devices to authenticate at the point of entry to your home network, and then encrypting files and data on your device.

Unfortunately, accessing some of the most important features, such as parental controls and identity theft protections, requires you to log into a separate online dashboard.
