McAfee protection on a phone

As technology improves, so do the threats to your network.

Most devices aren’t built with the security to protect your privacy. Smart home devices like thermostats, baby monitors, games consoles, and smart devices – anything that can connect to the internet – are potential gateways for cyber attacks.

McAfee provides you with real time, comprehensive home network protection in the palm of your hand. With more devices entering our homes than ever before, you can be ready to protect all of them and your family’s privacy now, and in the future.

Alerts you to suspicious behaviour

Find out about any devices attempting to connect to viruses and malicious websites.

Know when suspicious activity occurs and block connections with a single tap on your phone. You’ll automatically receive a notification in real time, so you can take action immediately.
