When to Use McAfee Safe Connect?
We suggest you keep McAfee Safe Connect Wi-Fi protection turned ON to minimize your online security risks & keep your data safe from prying eyes. Unlike home Wi-Fi, the vast majority of public Wi-Fi hotspots aren’t password-protected & don't encrypt the data being transmitted. When you connect to a hotspot, your online activities – from social media content to bank account credentials – may become vulnerable to hackers. With McAfee Safe Connect Secure VPN, your internet privacy & Wi-Fi security are protected.

McAfee charging me twice to use their product

First I installed McAfee safe connect on my PC $7.99 a month for up to 5 devices. Downloaded the McAfee safe connect on my IPhone and used my user name and password I created for my PC everything worked great. The iPhone app updated and after the update the app wouldn't except my user name and password and was charged another $7.99 for the month on my iPhone. I now have it on my PC and Phone and I'm being charged 7.99 a month for each one. I'll be removing it from my phone after this review.

After contacting McAfee customer service we got to the bottom of the problem and all is good so I changed my rating from 1 star to 5 star as I never had a problem with the product per se as it's easy to use and works as advertised.

Better than Norton and all the other anti virus and malware software out there

I got McAfee many years ago and has currently reactivated my account to help protect my iPad and iPhone from these dangerous hackers and sites that harbor dangerous viruses which could steal personal information. I do value McAfee for its experience in maintaining a safe environment so I don’t have to worry about my valuable personal information being hacked or used in any way.

LONG delays & CONSTANT timing out when using McAfee Safe Connect.

I have trusted the quality of McAfee products for many many years. Sadly, this VPN software is SO SLOW it causes major timing out problems in trying to connect and stay connected. At first I thought it was the Wi-Fi networks that I routinely use in numerous locations that were causing the problems. In the testing I have done, the pattern is very clear.

REGARDLESS of where I am, I must turn off this program to be able to connect and run ANY application I have. I can even sit directly in front of my high speed modem at home and get timed out. This occurs in my home with my private high speed network, in any other location, and in other cities when I travel.


This performance exposes me to great security risks. When I TURN OFF McAfee Safe Connect, I can always IMMEDIATELY process again at high speeds.

I had hoped that when Intel purchased McAfee that the products would rise to even higher standards. It has been long enough now, and there is no improvement.

I have been in the computer field for over 20 years, and the last computer services company I ran had 2000 employees and a $200 million annual budget. I would never have allowed any of my development teams to release a product of this poor a quality.
