McAfee's Mobile Security for Android offers protection from viruses and malware, secures your device and your apps, guards against unsafe websites, and helps manage storage and battery life.

Pros

One-stop security and device management: McAfee's multifunction app combines malware protection, device privacy, and website security with battery and memory management tools, offering a great deal of control in one spot.

Quick access: A home-screen widget provides quick access to commonly used tools, including device scanning, memory and storage management, and battery control. The unobtrusive widget displays color-coded cues to signal device health. The widget turns red if it finds potential security threats, yellow if the battery is running low, and green if it finds no issues.

Ward off nefarious acts: The suite automatically scans apps for threats, can lock your home screen and apps, offers guidance on how much personal data your apps are accessing, helps locate and lock down a lost device, and monitors risky Wi-Fi networks, websites, and links. You can also use your Android and Android Wear devices in tandem to monitor security.

Cons

A bit of a pest: Your Android device is secure only if you make the effort to protect it. But McAfee's suite can seem a bit pushy, subtly reminding you to set a PIN, for example, until you either turn off the notification or, hopefully, set a PIN.

Bottom Line

McAfee's gathers a solid, easy-to-use collection of security and device management tools in one app, letting you manage from one location your device security, privacy, and storage and battery use. A home-screen widget provides quick access to useful tasks.
