You also get essential protection against identity theft, risks in social media, and hacking of your PC and home network.
2012 Features and Highlights:
- Complete anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware – Relentless security software scans and blocks dangerous emails, risky web content, and online threats like viruses, Trojans, spyware, and rootkits.
- Real-time safeguards – If something new looks suspicious, McAfee Active Protection immediately determines its risk to help keep your computer secure.
- Two-way firewall – Extra layers of Internet security software block bad guys from breaking in or seeking out your personal information. This traffic cop patrols nonstop to prevent malicious software from gaining access to your PC.
- Safe searching and shopping – Color-coded icons next to your search results let you know before you click which sites are safe and which may install malicious code, phish for your identity, or send you spam.
- Digital data shredder – Permanently destroy sensitive files to be sure they cannot be retrieved by other users when you donate, recycle, or lend your PC.
- PC tune-up – Unused applications, cached browser files, and other junk slow down your PC. McAfee QuickClean software removes the clutter so your computer can keep up with your digital life.
- Exclusive anti-bot protection – McAfee now blocks botnet software by denying its attempts to connect your PC to web addresses that belong to crooks. This extra defense helps prevent your computer from sending out your personal information to Internet crime networks.
- USB and removable drive scan – Portable storage devices can be infected in their travels, spreading malicious code from system to system. McAfee can scan and block this portable payload of viruses, Trojans, and worms before they can work their way into your PC and your network.
- Pre-install scan – Many people get McAfee protection because they are already infected. To help you salvage your system, McAfee works to remove infections as our software installs.
- Anti-spam – The majority of emails are spam, and much of that spam is dangerous, offensive, or both. McAfee spam filters constantly protect you from this shady side of the Internet.
- Parental controls – Free your kids to learn and explore online. McAfee lets parents use age-based rules and adjustable categories to block inappropriate sites and limit online time.
- Surfing report – When you need to know what is happening online, this report shows login times, attempts to access forbidden sites, and total online time. You can also see who is online when.
- Online backup – Some memories can't be replaced, unless you have them backed up online. Save your most important photos, music, and personal and financial files automatically to a password-protected, encrypted safe deposit box in the cloud. You can recover them whenever you need them.
- Improved Encrypted storage – Your confidential files like tax forms and bank statements reveal your identity. McAfee Anti-Theft encrypts sensitive documents – even photos – in a password-protected vault on your PC to keep your identity safe from hacking as well as theft or loss of your PC.
- Wireless network protection – Wireless access allows online convenience, but don't let it go too far. McAfee Home Network Defense can block data thieves from seeing passwords and personal files on your PC when you share a wireless network.
- Improved Anti-phishing software – Advanced McAfee SiteAdvisor® LIVE software checks and alerts you to risky websites you receive in social media, email, and instant messages and blocks online phishing, when a scammer attempts to steal your personal and confidential information.
- Safe URL sharing – Now you can safely and easily share interesting and entertaining content with your social networks, providing web links that your friends can click with confidence. If your link becomes risky before they click, your friends will be warned and protected.
- URL shortener – Make your updates and tweets short and sweet – and safe – with our new integrated URL shortening service. You can embed brief, trustworthy URLs that spread the news without spam or malware.
