This is an antivirus program created by McAfee Inc. but one cannot have it separately, they need to install McAfee LiveSafe, McAfee Total protection or McAfee antivirus Plus to have it. This is specially designed to make management of antivirus software on several computers easier.

McAfee Anti-Spam

Emails are the first thing that hackers try to hack as through your email account they can access full knowledge about your personal life and banking details. Thus, it becomes necessary to keep our email accounts safe along with our computer. McAfee Web and Email protection have an anti-spam feature which checks all the incoming emails to see if they are safe to open or not. In case, the software finds anything suspicious about these emails then it automatically sends these emails into the junk folder.

By installing Anti-Spam feature you can protect your inbox from spam and phishing attacks. Advanced user can access additional benefit from this feature:

  • You can decide how aggressively you want the filter to work.
  • A genuine website can be added to the trusted list.
  • You can add known senders into Friend’s list so that their message never sent to the spam
  • You can create your own rules for filtering.
  • In fact, you can add a Webmail account to check the emails that you receive through the browser.

In fact, McAfee gives you the option to cross-check the emails that are sent to junk folder and in case you want to restore any message then you can easily do it. The user always has the option to disable this feature if they are facing any issue with their email account. It is suggested that before troubleshooting your email account issue you should turn off Anti-spam.

Parental Control

McAfee understands every parent’s concern this is why they have launched this Parental Control feature. Parental Control feature help to keep your kids safe in this online world. You can assign the age group of your kids to make McAfee know which content is appropriate for them and which is not. You can even allow or block specific websites and limit their time duration they can spend on the web. You can protect your Parental Control settings with a password so that no one else can make changes in its settings except you. A Parental Control can:

  • Filters the inappropriate sites as per the age group decided by you.
  • You can manually block sites which you think are not suitable for them.
  • You can decide how much time they can spend on the internet.
  • You can even receive alerts about their online activities.
  • You can allow those sites which you think are appropriate for your child.
  • By adding password you are having full control of Parental Control settings.

But for this, the user needs to have administrator control. Only the administrator can decide protection rules for each child. For creating an administrative password you have to login to your Windows PC as an administrator. All this make McAfee even better. With this feature, parents can stay carefree and do their work while their kids are online. Although, if you have any question about this feature or want to know about its settings then you can consult McAfee technicians at any time.
