Keep your most precious, most personal device safe

McAfee Active Protection™ technology provides real-time protection and scans for malicious code in apps, SD cards and internet downloads. Backed by McAfee's award-winning Global Threat Intelligence Network, it ensures no malware or other hazardous infections are able to infect your device.
Keep a thief, or another user, from bypassing your McAfee mobile protection and wiping your apps and device data. Password is required in order to delete the app.
Preserve your privacy
Safeguard your most personal and confidential information from risky apps and prying eyes.
Multi-User App Profiles
Restrict access to your apps by using one of the three profiles provided by the App Profile feature to create "safe" zones for your kids, friends, family or even a stranger. You control what apps others see on your device.
App Alert scans and checks your apps and lets you know when an app is asking for more access than it really needs. Backed by McAfee's Global Threat Intelligence Network, it even creates reports so you can decide whether or not to trust that app.
App Lock protects your privacy by enabling you to lock your apps with a password, thereby securing them from being accessed by other people using your phone.
Call and SMS Filter*
Easily filter out spammers, incorrect numbers, and unwanted SMS and MMS messages.
*Feature available for smartphone only
Find and protect your phone if lost or stolen
Locate your phone, display an onscreen message to improve its chances of being returned, and keep your personal data safe by locking or wiping it.
Locate your mobile device quickly via GPS, which can be activated remotely from any browser. You can also enable the SCREAM function which helps locate it with ease.
Lock your phone or Android tablet to keep outside parties from accessing your personal information via SMS or from controls managed from the remote management web portal. You can also create a customized lock screen message with your contact details to facilitate the safe return of your device.
Remote Wipe helps preserve your privacy should your phone be lost or stolen by enabling you to wipe all contacts, photos, and calendars, as well as your text messages, browsing history and SD Card.
Backup and Restore
Preserve irreplaceable personal information on demand, on a schedule, or before you wipe your missing smartphone; then restore your information to any supported mobile device.
Surf and shop safely by avoiding dangerous websites and links
Safe web surfing actively checks web pages in real-time, at the only time it matters - before you land on that page. If it detects something suspicious, it prevents you from visiting the site. Blocks potential phishing sites, browser exploits, and malicious links within text messages, email, social networking sites, and QR codes.
