  • McAfee Family Protection extends itself to Windows PCs, Macintosh computers and Android devices. It has a comprehensive feature set that takes into account websites, music, video, games, social networking, instant messages and email. It has a thoughtful design and works well.

  • With all the levels of protection that McAfee Family Protection provides, it is simple to see why this application does so well in our review. Because you can block out many things that parents may not think about such as news sites, television shows, music and video sites, you are offering a complete layer of protection to your child's life. While we would like to see them add the ability to block web-based chats, we are impressed that they do provide a full report including date, time and content of chats.

  • The McAfee Family Protection Plan is available with support for up to 3 PCs. The price could be a little steep for home users as it does not include any antivirus or firewall for protection from viruses. So, most users will have to purchase a separate antivirus software, which could cost a few extra thousand bucks. It might be a little on the expensive side, but if monitoring content is a priority, this product could well be worth considering.

  • Products like this will never be perfect. The problem is that for every site on the ‘block' list, there will be others that have yet to be identified. But on the whole, Family Protection does a good ?job of preventing access based on the administrator's criteria. We found places to access pornography, despite the Family Protection's pornography filter being active, but the block list is customisable and known problem sites can be added.

  • McAfee Family Protection is far too lax for kids and too restrictive for adults.It's hard to understand why Family Protection's default settings are suitable neither for adults or children and, given that it costs more than other better packages, it's one we can’t recommend.

  • With McAfee Family Protection, I trust that I don’t need to be standing over my daughter's shoulder at every second to make sure that she’s safely surfing the ‘net. I’m glad that this program can monitor their Internet use, allow us to set parental controls and also to monitor their usage to make sure that they’re not ending up on any sites we’re uncomfortable with. I know that MFP will grow with our children as their needs change over time and I’m glad that we can customize the program to work with us to keep our children safe online.

  • On balance, this is a poor, basic, unintuitive port of a Windows program that offers very little beyond what’s built into OS X. If you do want to control your family’s access and usage of the Internet, stick with what you already have.

  • If you’re just looking to keep your own surfing habits from getting you into trouble, McAfee Internet Security can protect you from dangerous Web sites and browser exploits as well as telling you if a particular online shopping site has been checked over by McAfee . It can also scan e-mail and IM attachments from Mail and iChat to make sure nobody tries to slip you a mickey while online, and can repair many files without damaging the contents.

  • McAfee Family Protection lacks some advanced options parents might expect, but its attractive price may be enough to sway them.

  • McAfee Family Protection 2.0 can protect your kids on up to three computers. Configuration is all Web-based, so settings affect all computers. It's a good choice for parental control and monitoring.
