What does McAfee Total Protection cover?
At its core, McAfee Total Protection provides our award-winning antivirus to defend against viruses, online threats and ransomware with both cloud-based online and offline protection. Beyond your Windows PCs, McAfee Total Protection provides cross-device protection that extends your peace of mind to your Macs and iOS/Android mobile devices, so you can enjoy security at home and on-the-go across all your compatible devices.
Available when you’re enrolled in auto-renewal**, our secure VPN uses bank-grade AES 256-bit encryption to keep your browsing information and online habits protected at home and on-the-go.
McAfee® WebAdvisor web protection enables you to sidestep attacks before they happen with clear warnings of risky websites, links and files, so you can browse, shop and bank with confidence.
PC Optimization features help your PC go faster while ensuring you still have top-notch security. Web Boost helps rescue both your battery and bandwidth from distracting auto-play videos by automatically pausing them. And with App Boost, apps that you’re actively working on will automatically receive a boost in resources, so you can get the job done faster.
Available with McAfee Total Protection for 10 devices, McAfee® Safe Family provides robust parental controls for your kids’ Windows PCs and Android/iOS devices. Packed with useful features, Safe Family gives you an extra set of hands to juggle your kids’ digital lives, from helping them build good habits to managing their app usage and online time. You can even keep track of their location when they’re getting some much-needed outdoor time.
Because much of your digital life exists in files on your computer, you can use McAfee® QuickClean™ and Shredder™ to manage your privacy. Use McAfee QuickClean to remove temporary files and cookies to reclaim storage space and minimize exposure. And, when you’re looking to dispose of sensitive files, McAfee Shredder securely deletes files so that would-be thieves can’t put the pieces back together.
Our passwords are the keys to our digital kingdom. Take the guesswork out of creating and remembering complex passwords with our password manager, which can store, auto-fill and even generate unique complex passwords. For added convenience, you can access your shared passwords on your PC and mobile devices with a single account.
Many vulnerabilities on your PC are due to out-of-date apps. With Vulnerability Scanner, you can update Windows and your apps from one place, streamlining Windows and application updates with a single tool that scans and installs critical updates.

Otherwise, your computer will become susceptible to numerous virus threats.
How is my Protection Score calculated?
Your score is based on a few things, including setting up your McAfee protection, strengthening your security with our safety recommendations, and ensuring your personal info is safely monitored with Identity Protection. For example, if your information is exposed in a data breach your score may drop, but you can improve it by following our easy-to-follow remediation steps. A perfect score does not mean you’re perfectly safe, but it does mean that you’re doing an excellent job of preventing and managing risks.
