Aside from being an antivirus, antispyware and antimalware, the McAfee Total Protection has the trademark features of McAfee like the Digital Data Shredder, Antibot protection and Parental Controls to ensure that the computer is away from evolving dangers such as viruses, Trojans and worms. The McAfee Total Protection also includes the McAfee Home Network Defense, which is McAfee’s offering for wireless network protection. This feature prevents strangers and unauthorized users from accessing personal files and passwords on a shared wireless network. The McAfee Anti-Theft feature helps protect confidential files and documents through a password protected storage on the computer and keeps it safe from hackers even if the computer has been stolen.
Another added feature is the McAfee SiteAdvisor Live, McAfee’s improved anti-phishing software. This would scan websites, whether they’re links showing up on search results, links posted on emails or shared in social networking sites. It detects any phishing software hiding in these links to protect sensitive and confidential computer information that could be stolen and used in identity theft like addresses, credit card and bank account numbers.
The McAfee Total Protection also gives protection in social networks. It scans any links before they’re shared on any network to make sure that even contacts and friends are protected against any harmful and invasive spam and software. The new URL shortener also makes sure that even shortened links are safe from malware and spyware. With all its extra security features, the McAfee Total Protection helps keep user safe for optimum computer performance and browsing experience.
