  • McAfee Internet Security 2016 has proven once again to be a poorly built, poorly managed piece of security software.


    We have to give McAfee credit for (finally) being a lightweight Internet Security suite, but that's about it.andnbsp;

    From terrible malware detection and removal scores, to an abysmal user interface, and a bad firewall, we can't recommend McAfee Internet Security to anyone this year. Again.

  • The software we have reviewed is well assembled and does a fairly good job combating malicious software and hacker attacks. Plentiful feature set and customer support are on the plus side of the utility as well. Main disadvantages of McAfee Internet Security 2015 are in the realm of usability and false positives. It significantly slowed down the system during scans, and had the second worst false positives rate in AV-Comparatives’ latest Real-World Protection Test. Nonetheless, there is hardly any room for doubt when it comes to protection and functionality supplied by this software.

  • McAfee Internet Security is a mixed bag of features and frustration. It has plenty of useful tools and its malware protection has improved, but it’s still not good enough.

  • McAfee ranks high on our list of the top 10 internet security suites. Malware detection rates are among the best in class. Features includes antiphishing, a firewall, password management, parental controls and a file shredder. Because of its strong performance and extensive features, we recommend this powerful software for those who don't need online backup features.

    McAfee Internet Security for Mac is among the best Mac security products because it goes beyond antimalware to provide something that is probably even more important for Mac users: antiphishing protection. Hackers use phishing to go after Macs now because it is easier to trick a human into clicking on a fraudulent file or visiting a fake website than it is to install malware on a Mac. McAfee maintains a list of known phishing sites and will save you from yourself if you are tempted to bite on phishing bait.

  • McAfee Internet Security Suite is a bit of a departure from a traditional security suite, but it's a welcome one. McAfee Internet Security Suite is very hands-off - it scans, monitors and protects with a minimum of effort - but if you do want to take a peek "under the hood", you'll find that it's one of the easiest and clearest security suites that you've ever seen.

  • Although McAfee Internet Security is among the 10 best internet security suites, it is not among the top three. It has good features and is effective at detecting and preventing malware infiltration. Unfortunately, it does not excel in tests to see whether it can disinfect a Windows machine in which malware has already established residence.

  • The Internet Security from McAfee is a powerful tool for keeping your computer safe against multiple Internet threats and your children away from inappropriate websites.

  • Although it didn't do terribly compared to its rivals, and although it offers some things to like, we find it difficult to give this package a recommendation considering its low ranking. But if McAfee can smooth out some of the rough spots, the suite may be worth watching.

  • It’s a hard sell to tell someone who has had no problems, and expects none, to buy a security product. But we find the antivirus effects of McAfee Internet Security aren’t as interesting as the amount of information and control the software provides over the routine function of your system and network connections.
