    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

    Wahrscheinlich haben Sie schon einmal eine SMS mit Glückwünschen zu einem Wettbewerb erhalten, an dem Sie nie teilgenommen haben, oder eine E-Mail von Ihrer Bank, Ihrem Internetanbieter oder Ihrem Energieversorger über eine angeblich unbezahlte Rechnung. Diese Art von Nachrichten sind Beispiele für Phishing, eine Betrugstaktik, die von Cyberkriminellen verwendet wird, um Sie zu einer scheinbar legitimen Transaktion zu verleiten, die in Wirklichkeit aber dazu dient, über eine gefälschte Website an Ihre Anmelde- oder Kreditkartendaten zu gelangen. Der in McAfee Total Protection integrierte Schutz hält Sie von bösartigen Websites fern, indem er klare Warnungen ausgibt, mit denen Sie riskante Websites, Links und Dateidownloads identifizieren können.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.
