McAfee Total Protection review: Top security, but the app needs a little work

The app design isn't as straightforward as it could be, but overall Total Protection offers a lot of value.

McAfee Australia Total Protection
  • Expert Rating

    4.00 / 5


  • Good protection
  • Nice features like file shredder and home network analyser


  • Mixed impact on performance
  • New app design is a little scattered

Bottom Line

McAfee Total Protection offers excellent PC Protection, decent pricing, and a new desktop design on Windows. We'd like to see the app be a little more streamlined but for overall value and protection McAfee is well worth considering.
