Editors' review

McAfee Antivirus & Security brings a new level of security and features to Android device protection. In addition to basic antivirus, privacy, and Web security, McAfee can also back up your device as well as lock or unlock it or even wipe data remotely. It helps you find your device if it's lost or stolen with geo-location and CaptureCam, which e-mails the administrator (that's you) photos of whoever was holding your phone and a map of their location.

Pros

Easy to use: Help, tutorials, and support draw on McAfee's long experience in cyber-security. It scanned our phone for Security, Privacy, and Web issues and activated Auto-Scan for each.

Robust mobile security: Configuring your free McAfee account as an administrator lets you back up, lock, wipe, and access your device's data remotely. McAfee can't be deactivated or uninstalled without your permission and PIN.

Cons

Registration required: You have to create an account to try McAfee Antivirus & Security.

It's not free: Monthly or annual subscriptions are available, but the app is comparable in price to a full-featured desktop antivirus tool, and free alternatives offer stiff competition on both fronts.

Bottom Line

If you already have a McAfee account, McAfee Antivirus & Security makes sense, especially if you're looking for a premium solution with plenty of extras. While there are free options that cover many of the same security issues, McAfee Antivirus & Security is certainly a premium contender.
