McAfee Total Protection is an all-in-one security solution for protecting your personal information and privacy, so you can enjoy life online without fear of malicious code, ransomware, hackers and other forms of potential threats.

The suite includes premium antivirus, safe browsing, identity monitoring and secure VPN for all your devices - computers, tablets and smartphones.

With more than 1.3 billion pieces of malicious code reported and millions more added every month (source: AV-test.org), it's essential to have the best protection available to keep up with the changing nature and complexity of threats. McAfee Total Protection uses a variety of strategies such as behavioural detection and machine learning to detect, isolate and eliminate all known malware (viruses, trojans, spyware, ransomware, etc.) and even zero-day digital threats (previously unknown threats) to ensure your online security.

Intrusion firewall

McAfee Total Protection includes an advanced firewall to secure your home networks, including wireless networks. It filters and examines the information coming to you through your Internet connection. This first line of defence prevents malware or attackers from accessing your network and information before they can do any potential damage.

Web protection / anti-phishing

You've probably already received an SMS congratulating you on a competition you never entered, or an e-mail from your bank, Internet service provider or energy supplier about a supposedly unpaid bill. These types of messages are examples of phishing, a scam tactic used by cybercriminals to trick you into carrying out a transaction that looks legitimate but actually allows them to retrieve your identification or credit card details via a fake site. The built-in protection in McAfee Total Protection will help you avoid malicious websites with clear warnings that identify risky websites, links and file downloads.

Unlimited VPN

The Safe Connect module in McAfee Total Protection is an unlimited VPN that automatically activates on unsecured networks (e.g. Wifi in a public place). It offers encryption equal to that of the banking system in order to protect your data with the same technology used by banks. It provides anonymous browsing so you can use the Internet with confidence and be protected from advertisers and prying eyes. Your online activities remain completely private.

Identity theft illustration
Monitoring against identity theft

The most common form of identity theft is financial identity theft, which refers to any type of theft in which someone uses another person's information for financial purposes (fraud to create a new account, account takeover, identity theft for commercial purposes, etc.). McAfee Total Protection provides 24/7 monitoring of your email addresses, bank accounts, and over 60 types of personal information.

File shredder

McAfee Total Protection's built-in file shredder completes the protection of your identity and data privacy by permanently deleting important files from your computer: an ideal solution for tax documents, financial information and other sensitive personal files. This way, your files can no longer be recovered by specialised software, unlike a classic deletion or even a disk formatting.

Password Manager

An increasing number of websites and online services require login details and passwords, often leading to the use of passwords that are far too simple to remember, and even worse, to the use of the same password everywhere, making it much easier for hackers to access all your information in just a few minutes. McAfee Total Protection's built-in password manager allows you to securely store and manage all of your online passwords in a single location. This allows you to have complex and unique passwords for each site and online service, while only having to remember one: the password manager, which automatically fills in the required login credentials.

Performance Optimisation

Forget about the days when antivirus software slowed down your computer. Automated tools that help your computer run faster and more efficiently so you can focus on what really matters are now built into McAfee Total Protection. These include optimising your PC's performance, deleting cookies and temporary files, and even pausing unwanted auto-playing videos so you can enjoy a smoother experience on your PC, save bandwidth, and improve your battery life.

Parental Control (Exclusively on McAfee+ Premium Familial and Advanced Familial)

Whether at home, school or away, children are exposed to many things and risks on the Internet. So it's important to use parental control software to help keep them safe, even when you can't be around them. Safe Family Parental Controls built into McAfee Total Protection is a tool that allows you to manage your children's Internet use by including features such as website and content filtering, screen time management, application blocking, geolocation and more.

Protection score

Knowing your security level is an essential first step to a safer online life.

The built-in protection score in McAfee Total Protection checks your level of online security and provides simple instructions for quickly configuring your protection to close the gaps in your online security across all your devices.

Account analysis and online information
Account analysis and online information (McAfee+ Premium and Advanced only)

This exclusive new McAfee+ Premium allows you to get help deleting your personal information from old online accounts that still hold it. Simply enter your Gmail or Microsoft (Outlook, Hotmail, MSN, etc.) email address to find your online accounts and their level of risk, so you can decide which ones to keep and which to delete. With a single click, automated data deletion requests are sent for the accounts you choose.
McAfee+ Premium also helps prevent your personal information from being sold online by searching for your personal information on high-risk data broker sites in order to remove it.

Icon Help with identity restoration and wallet theft (McAfee+ Advanced only)
