McAfee AntiVirus Plus 2017-2018 Full Free Download
McAfee Antivirus Plus is the newest top-of-the-line version of the famous antivirus software. Thanks to a partnership with Intel, a large number of computers and laptops now come with a free or trial version of McAfee pre-installed, making it perhaps the world’s most popular antivirus software.
With most annual antivirus software licences costing around $39.99, McAfee Antivirus Plus positions itself as a premium product. For the money, it is a solid antivirus product that includes a firewall, encryption and monitoring services, alongside a few unexpected features like a password manager and update checker.
Beyond what is expect, the greatest advantage it has over its competitors is the ability to install the software on unlimit devices. This means that the annual fee protects laptops, phones, computers and anything else with a digital pulse, bringing real value to the table.
A new Virus Protection Pledge and live support show that McAfee has a renew focus on user experience. This is a product that wants to be taken seriously after a period of time when McAfee in general was regarde as somewhat lacklustre antivirus protection, and McAfee Antivirus Plus certainly ticks most of the boxes.
McAfee‘s 2018 Windows antivirus lineup can cover all the devices of a large family. All its products come with a file shredder, many have an excellent password manager, and the top end offers backup software. Many of the products can be install on an unlimit number of devices on a single license.
Costs and What’s Covered
On the downside, McAfee’s antivirus software won’t let you opt out of system-data collection and it uses an excessive amount of system resources. Worse, its malware protection hasn’t been very good, despite a new detection engine, often faring no better than Microsoft’s free antivirus software in lab tests. A new McAfee malware-detection engine debuted midway through 2017, but its results have been mix so far. Until McAfee’s detection scores consistently improve, we’ll recommend Bitdefender, Kasperskyor Norton instead.
McAfee Antivirus Basic has a file shredder, a two-way firewall, anti-phishing protection and protective browser extensions. On the downside, McAfee’s antivirus software won’t let you opt out of system-data collection and it uses an excessive amount of system resources.
