McAfee Antivirus Plus is the newest top-of-the-line version of the famous antivirus software.
Thanks to a partnership with Intel, a large number of computers and laptops now come with a free or trial version of McAfee pre-installed, making it perhaps the world's most popular antivirus software. The question is, is it worth the $59.99 annual fee to get all the bells and whistles that are on offer?
With most annual antivirus software licences costing around $39.99, McAfee Antivirus Plus positions itself as a premium product. For the money, it is a solid antivirus product that includes a firewall, encryption and monitoring services, alongside a few unexpected features like a password manager and update checker.
Beyond what is expected, the greatest advantage it has over its competitors is the ability to install the software on unlimited devices. This means that the annual fee protects laptops, phones, computers and anything else with a digital pulse, bringing real value to the table.
A new Virus Protection Pledge and live support show that McAfee has a renewed focus on user experience. This is a product that wants to be taken seriously after a period of time when McAfee in general was regarded as somewhat lacklustre antivirus protection, and McAfee Antivirus Plus certainly ticks most of the boxes.
