No anti virus 1/5
No virus protection false advertising will delete and also remove from my PC
It got my Phone speeding up completely! 5/5
By Fischer Justin
I am happy for this app, I recommend this app!
What protection? 2/5
If you get this package for free or REALLY cheap, fine. Takes picture if code entered wrong 3 times. What if you want picture at two missed entries, or five? Sorry not with this. As bundled with the home solution called Total Protection this is basically a freebie. Better solutions out there.
No antivirus 1/5
The whole point of getting this app is bc I wanted an antivirus and this has nothing to do with that. I can locate my phone if it gets lost or stolen and put a pin on my files. Seriously? What a waste.
No anti-virus 1/5
I wanted a virus scanner and based on description I thought that was what I was getting.
But, no .... Don't buy if you want a virus scanner.
Doesn't Do What's Advertised 1/5
Clearly doesn't back up your contacts. My phone went dead, put the app back on my phone, logged in and nothing. Worthless app that takes up too much space.
Not Impressed 1/5
By Big Bad Voo Doo Daddy
As with most everyone else, this app does not offer virus protection, or the ability to scan your I phone for viruses and malware. Kind of a waste of space on my phone since my phone can already do all that is offered with this app. However, that being said, it never hurts to double up. Just wish it did what it does on my computer.
No protection 1/5
I have had McAfee for a few years and have been very happy with it. When I had an android I had an app for my phone for antivirus. I switched to an iPhone, downloaded this app to have antivirus. But there is none! There are not any mcafee antivirus apps to protect my phone. Very disappointed.
False advertising 1/5
No antivirus no malware protection as advertised. No. Not buy, complete waste of your money. See the ratings. Need I say more
Super great tool. Thank you McAfee. Thank you
What's the point 3/5
You can't scan your phone for viruses or hackers, my phone staticed like someone may have hacked it, linking to pic or other devices not sure it's safe.
Zero Stars 1/5
There is NO MALWARE OR VIRUS PROTECTION. Everything being offered on this app is already made possible by iCloud and free apps with equal peace of mind. You are basically purchasing data back-ups. That's all. I not only feel duped but am totally dismayed that blatant false advertisement isn't worthy of a refund. Bad business practice with this one and a customer let down. I'm deleting the app with or without a refund and pray I am not on an autopay, although that would be fitting. Worthless!
No virus or Malware protection 1/5
This app is great for backing up pics and contacts but that is it. It does not include virus or malware or browsing protection for your phone. I even have the top McAfee software for multiple devices. Bought it so my I phone 7 would be protected. But it does only back up which iCloud already does I also MS One Drive so it is useless to have on my phone. I was very disappointed that it does not provide antivirus or malware protection for my phone. McAfee should state that upfront.
McAffee Mobile App 1/5
I am not impressed. It is free so I got what I got what I paid for. If you take pictures you want secured, if don't know how to use features available in iOS this may be of value. Passed that it is an advertising mechanism for McAfee, with very little functionality.
No good 1/5
I can't see what the app does for me I want to cancel it and don't know how
We have this app on a Samsung tablet and it works great. It does manual scans, and automatic scans. Has more options. On the iPad all you get is back-up and find my device. Disappointing to say the least.
Easy and a good app for security 5/5
By E 💵
Easy and a good app for security.
Exceptional protection 5/5
It does everything I would expect and more. Very satisfied.
Does nothing for ios device. 1/5
Do not buy. You are throwing money away
Ignore bad reviews: Does exactly what it says 4/5
People complaining that it doesn't do virus scan, did not read the packaging. It's actually pretty clear that it offers different levels/types of protection for all of your different devices.
It shows a computer and a tablet beside "anti-virus, firewall... parental controls for Windows devices"
The next bullet point has a picture that includes a phone and tablet and says "anti-malware..anti-theft & file protection for iOS tablets and smartphones."
The third has android logo and devices and says, "data backup, anti-theft, app privacy, & wifi protection for android.."
Too hard to use, can't get to work 1/5
This app should be a breeze! It's not! I can't get it to work. I have it on my PC but wanted to add protection to my tablet and iPhone. Nightmare!! As soon as my subscription is up I'm going with another company!
Mcafee security 5/5
Best virus security for iPhone and computer
What A Mistake! 1/5
By DIANA'S MINI
I cannot believe how UN-user-friendly this app is! First of all, THERE IS NO ANTIVIRUS utility! Secondly, I uploaded over five thousand photos from different albums on my iPad by selecting them in bulk, but to restore them, I have to select them one picture at a time! Thirdly, I chose to begin with the images I uploaded from my Snapseed album, and now I can't find my way back to the other albums stuck in this stupid vault. I don't want to lose my images! I am so sorry i chose McAfee. No good.
Lost ALL MY INFO 1/5
AFTER BUYING A NEW IPHONE, I WANTED TO TRANSFER ALL MY PICTURES TO MY NEW PHONE. I DOWNLOADED THE APP TO MY NEW PHONE AND SIGNED IN, TRANSFERRING MY LICENSE TO MY NEW PHONE. WHEN I DID, I LEARNED BY DOING SO, THAT MY OLD PHONE NO LONGER HAD ACCESS TO MY OLD LICENSE AND THEREFORE ALL MY INFO AND PICTURES WERE NOW INACCESSIBLE. WHERE ARE MY PICTURES AND HOW CAN I RESTORE THEM???!!
Not Sure What This App Does... 1/5
By Sean M Clark
Except mimick iCloud. Haven't found a way to scan for viruses etc. kind of pointless.
#Improvements to be made. 2/5
By Ted E Bear In October outside
#Web Security VPN should be included with Livesafe subscription
#Virus Scan should be installed in the app via a rootkit profile on iOS 6 and later that would install with the IKEv2 Web Security VPN which should be included in LiveSafe subscription on iOS 6 and later.
#Ad Block should be imbedded in Livesafe Web Security VPN.
#Ad block proxy should be created for wifi and Bluetooth wifi connection to be installed on the proxy server setting of iOS Wifi network URL location in the wifi network setting.
#Make app compatible with iOS 6.0 and later with iOS 10.3 and later backwards compatibility.
Garbage app. 1/5
The app does not run virus or malware scans!! The instructions say check device health however you don't have that option!!!! Trash!! Garbage!!!
The app does what it is supposed to do, however, it is unacceptable that a company like McAfee practices double billing by offering trial offers and never applying the trial offer to an existing account.
Don't get it 1/5
Charged me twice what they said. Can't find how to stop auto renewal. Does nothing for the high cost.
Terrible and waste of space 1/5
This is not ANTIVIRUS like ALL other MCAFEE. To the person who didn't know why we expect this -- it us because all other McAfee ARE ANTIVIRUS! It is only contact backup and lost phone thing. I have those with numerous other apps! Also This does say after installation that it provides web security but it does not! False advertising and false description!
What does this do? 1/5
Hide my naked pics that's it. No virus protection, help said goto main menu click on device help. Guess what no device help tab!!!!!!!
Can't access 1/5
By Rainbows and diamonds
Had to make my nickname nice or they wouldn't accept my review. I am stuck on an "enter a new access code" pop up no matter what I do. I entered the correct code but was told it was not correct. Let them send me a reset access code but there was no access code in the email. Can't get them to send it again. Frustrated.
Directions are outdated, no help at all 1/5
I wanted to run a simple malware scan. The directions tell me to access the "Device Security" screen. There IS NO device security screen! I expected far better. I use Mcafee on my windows computer and it works well. But the mobile platform is useless
What's the point 1/5
This is useless
Great Protection 5/5
By Optimus KevTron
McAfee can go a little overboard sometimes with trying to protect EVERYTHING in your house and everything you own which can get annoying at times when you're in a rush. At the same time, I would rather have an antivirus program being this protective of my information rather than being relaxed and having the attitude of "Meh, that file should be okay. Open it!"
It was worth every penny since I use a lot of my cell phone, tablet, laptop, and gaming PC and McAfee makes sure they're all safe. You seriously can't go wrong going with this product.
Worthless tool 1/5
This has by far been a disappointment because it offers no antivirus scanning, my main purpose for buying this software. Seems like everyone is in the business of taking advantage of customers, McAffee included.
Don't do it it's a waste of time and money get a program online for free it's the same thing
iPad app doesn't do landscape? 3/5
So far, good app. Very annoying, though, that the app cannot be displayed in landscape mode - or if it can, it is readily apparent how to do so.
Missing the security features 3/5
I've downloaded McAfee software on all my devices up to 5 while this one is the only problem I encounter with my Cox.net subscription. This apple app doesn't have the scan or web security with the app lock feature that I'm accustom to using. McAfee works great on my home network and other mobile devices except for my IPad. I'm hoping to see an update soon so until then, the picture file vault will have to do for now.
Bad Product 1/5
I hate it I'm not tech smart and this product is too hard 4 me to setup I want it cancelled NOW!!
McAfee service 2/5
I can't seem to see any value to this app. I purchased the software for my laptop with the purchase offering the virus software for my iPad. When I go to the help file, the options for viruses can't are not available.
What's the point? 1/5
No virus scanning option. Icloud serves as backup
It's not letting me store some photos and vids into my camera roll
No purpose 1/5
This app essentially just takes up space.
It pops up msgs to backup to icloud even if you choose to use other programs to backup.
It quite literally does nothing.
Useless on iPhone except file encryption 2/5
The only thing that works is file encryption. I checked the files in iexplorer. They are indeed encrypted. That's nice. But the product falls short in being a good picture encryption app and organizer. Other than that the rest of the features do not work unless the app is open in iPhone.
Useless otherwise and no built in virus scanning. Clearly built for android with a port to iPhone.
This Smartphone security app is awesome ! 5/5
This is truly the best Security app for any brand, model or kind of Smartphone. If you need assistance installing this awesome app and/or making all of its security features work on your Smartphone, call McAfee Customer Support at: 1-888-847-8766. Was easy to install on my personal iPhone, Apple iPhone 6S Plus 128GB Silver. App review by Gary. :-)
Not worth it. 1/5
I have McAfee mobile security for my android phone and it works really well. Has an antivirus and everything. So when I got my new iPhone I wanted it for this one as well. But it is sadly no where near as good as the android version. I want an antivirus protection. Without antivirus protection this app just isn't worth it.
None of the features work 1/5
By John Doe21256
The only phone security feature that works is find your phone. Nothing else will work.
Very helpful 5/5
I have McAfee for my computer and I did have to pay but it backed up 3 phones 2 iPhone 7 plusses and one galaxy s 6 edge and just payed for the computer
