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Directions are outdated, no help at all 1/5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
Waste of money 1/5
First off. I bought mine in store, not on line. Told Office Depot I wanted the best antivirus they had. The package clearly states on front and back antivirus. Guess what?? There is none. Yes, it's great to find my phone. But my life is not in it so the few features this offers to me is worthless!! I paid $90 to locate my phone and do backup on it, which I do not need. This was a waste of my money. It took all evening to download, kept wanting me to agree to automatic renewal and wanting my credit card number.
Good Security 5/5
By WInk Daddi
Thank you Cox.net
Great for backup and phone finder. 5/5
I've used McAfee for my laptop and tablet. This version says nothing about virus scans so I don't know what everyone is complaining about. They obviously didn't read about what they were downloading.
Totally waste 1/5
Spend lot of time, download and backup, but does nothing with virus protection.
By caps now goose
This app is just lousy, I have a paid subscription and it has no ability to scan or remove a virus from iOS from my IPad
Web security 1/5
I have a subscription so why does this keep saying it is expiring???
Like someone else wrote it has same features that Apple provides.
Now the app is trying to configure VPN and I say no but it keeps popping up and I have to do a hard reboot to stop it.
App is being deleted
By ThatBoi skinny jeans
I indeed like this as it is helpful in all types of ways, the s.o.s helps find and track your last location if an any trouble what so ever
Yes for all 👍🏼 5/5
By iam silver moon
Really Very good application 👍 l have this application in my phone since they made it long time every day i work with it really it's helpful .. thanks to all developers in this application to make it succeed ⭐️❤️
By Ma Qi
Worst app I've used ever. A pop-up disabled myiPhone and wouldn't go away. The app contradicts info on the website. The kid in India said to call Apple! This wasn't the first time McAssie refused to help.
Web security 2/5
After the trial period ended, the app went into and endless loop prompting to allow vpn configuration. Didn't matter whether I replied "allow" or "don't allow", it was stuck in a loop. Had to shut down and restart my iPad, then delete the app to stop it from going into a loop again.
Works well for me 5/5
Haven't had any problems on my phone or computers.
Useless trash app - and the customer service is unable to understand English. Avoid this garbage. The photos in the vault are just gone forever. Do NOT use, DO NOT subscribe, it's just fancy looking garbage.
Lame product 1/5
Insists on stuff I DO NOT WANT. And you can't get to the main screen until it gets everything it wants. I'm deleting it NOW.
I see no point in this app, it's features are completely redundant. I wanted virus protection but it doesn't offer any. Skip it and save yourself the download.
GREAT APP 5/5
Works really well, very satisfied!
WARNING: Do not install this application 1/5
It worked fine for a few months. Then suddenly all my pictures were gone. I performed an iCloud back up on a monthly basis. However the back up will not retrieve your photos. Mcafee Customer service is a joke and did not help me at all.
Do not save your photos with this application. You will loose them at some point.
Easy useless app 2/5
Terrible app. Crashed many times. Worthless - does basically the same thing that Find my iPhone does. Had pics and documents backed up, app crashed, lost everything. Come on guys, you can do better!!!
Crashed on me. All photos GONE! 1/5
One day I just turned on the app and alll my photos were GONE!!!!!!!!!!I had this app for about a year. I had sooo many photos on the app I had just about everything off my camera roll from the past into this app. I regret even using this app!! All those precious moments and pictures are gone!! Never to return...! And I don't know why this happened?!?! I didn't reset my phone or anything!
Not What You Think 2/5
I thought this was an anti virus program just like the McAfee I have on my PC. It's not! It's nothing more than a storage app and a phone locator. Skip it.
Great app and service I feel at ease 5/5
By Yo great app though
I feel I can safely browse anything I want
Stupid app for my phone 1/5
By Another sailor
This app has never worked on my phone!
Useless... INFINITE NEGATIVE STARS! 1/5
Even the description of functions is duplicity at its finest. Does nothing but secure types of files which is available on any Apple device anyway and done seamlessly. This abortive of an App was suggested by Time-Warner/Spectrum so it's uselessness is not a surprise. Exactly what I expected. NOTHING!
Save your money, time, and frustration and have nothing to do with this app!!! Slows down your phone. Blocks your email address 😵 and many app's. Running from this app.
Really nice to have an apps that can make you phone safe and protected plus the vault keep your file safe
McAfee Security 1/5
By Happy angel15
I would give this app negative stars. It will not open and allow me to anything. Nice idea but remember the old proverb. U get what you pay for
I paid nothing for this app and I got nothing. Can't use it until they get out all the bugs and send an update. McAfee used to be a great company. Too bad they cannot create a good app
Apparently they did not beta test it. 👎👎👎👎👎 we give this app
5 thumbs down!!!😡😡
Computer use only 1/5
So people can access your vault by touching file pic but if you touch the vault it asks for pin. So they can delete your photos without having to enter pin.
