CNET Editors' review

McAfee SafeKey can hold all of your passwords safely, but it takes a while to set up. Depending on how much you use McAfee products, you may have to sign up for multiple accounts just to access this app's features. That doesn't bode well for this program, especially when there are other easy-to-use, effective password managers available.

This program serves as a home for all of your passwords. It can log in for you on some Web sites, as well, and syncs to your desktop or tablet app if you have one. Your passwords are all held in a clean, white menu that shows you the icon for each account, so you never mix them up and log in, incorrectly. The program has a notes feature that lets you write password-protected notes, as well. SafeKey copies the password for you, so you never even see it when you're entering it on the Web site, which is a boost for security -- no one peeking over your shoulder can see it. The app requires an account, but in order to get one, you have to already have a McAfee account; this means a lengthy setup if you don't.

It makes sense that this app would be concerned about security, but that might be taking it too far. Both KeePass and LastPass work just as well and are a lot easier to set up. However, if you're already into McAfee and have the accounts you need, SafeKey is worth using.

    "Are you sure, there should be minus stars"

    March 20, 2014  |   By musicmugger

    Version: McAfee SafeKey 1.0.7

    Pros

    I cannot imagine there are any

    Cons

    McAfee, or Norton allowed to have your private details, you may as well hand them over to Google

    Summary

    Considering these companies employ more criminal hackers than are sitting in all the jail in the world, I wouldn't think whatever CNET says about the software would be safe. What happens when McAfee decides it wants your details to give to the worlds worst terrorist, the NSA.
    With all the computer etc., etc., spying that's instigated illegally by governments who are in league with the US government, do you really want to trust anyone but yourself?
    Once upon a time what I am saying would be considered as conspiracy theory, but now it's fact. I think I would feel safer writing all my passwords on a piece of paper and sticking it in my window.
