This is an extremely important app tool as most people use their smartphone as they previously used a computer or laptop. The value of our personal information becomes even MORE important changing solely to a smartphone for either your main online needs or your SOLE online needs. Do get online on ANY device without McAfee Security. I was a Norton user and even though I am very tech savvy, I had data compromised. I will NEVER use Norton again. I have had McAfee for some years now and haven’t been compromised with my personal information once. Actually McAfee is very aggressive to help me navigate websites and warn me to websites that I never knew exposed my personal information no matter what settings I used on my Apple phone and their security settings, and my HP computer and Microsoft security settings. I can’t myself believe the large difference and the confidence I gained after I started using McFee products.

Great app! Issues with Apple CarPlay/VPN. Help?

Great app, but I am experiencing issues. I have an iPhone 11 and have the latest version of iOS installed. I am having issues with the McAfee VPN/Web Guard and my Apple CarPlay radio. While everything works fine with the radio (connected via USB), I cannot use Siri if the VPN/Web Guard feature is on. It is extremely inconvenient to have to turn on and turn off the VPN. Especially when I enter a public place where I have previously connected to WiFi and my phone auto-connects to the WiFi connection. An example of my main issue would be something like this: I am driving in my vehicle and I decide to use Siri with the voice control button in my 2020 Kia. I say, “Please call Dad.” Siri will show on my CarPlay radio that it is trying to process my request and then states that, “Siri requires an internet connection.” I am using my Sprint 4G data the entire time while I am driving and the VPN is on. If I turn it off, no problems. I enjoy this app and I am paying $9.99 monthly for it. I would hate to search for other alternatives. Could you please tell me if you know anyways I can resolve this issue? And if not, could McAfee possibly look into fixing this? I’ve searched online and I have seen that many others are experiencing the same problem. Thank you!

Protection needs some fine tuning

This is a great app to have, since I am always on the internet, and using my Bluetooth headphones for study. The only issue I have is that this app can stop protecting at any given time of the day. If I have safe web and WiFi protection on, they should stay on. I shouldn't have to go back into the app to check and see if both are green. It has become a bit daunting to keep having to go back and check and see if my app is still
Protecting me when I had already checked the boxes to do so. This app can throw itself out of protecting you, leaving you unprotected for a period of time until you go back and check. I think you need to fix that bug. If we click on each feature to protect us, it should stay that way all day, unless we go in and uncheck it ourselves.
Yesterday I had my Bluetooth, and I had all the protection on, and when I went back to check my Bluetooth, someone had come onto my Bluetooth as another device, trying to get access. That is not supposed to happen if I'm protected. When I went back
To the app, which was protecting me prior, it had shut my protection off. Please fix this bug. Other than that complaint it's a good app, but it needs fine tuning. Thank you
