McAfee Safe Connect - WiFi Privacy & VPN Proxy gives you bank-grade encryption to help keep all your online activities, sites visited, and personally identifiable information private and secure – even on public Wi-Fi or any open networks. With McAfee Safe Connect, your network connection is encrypted from your device. Safe Connect will hide your IP address and let you browse online anonymously so that your physical location & information you transmit are secure. Hackers and cyber criminals won’t be able to easily see what you are doing online or capture your sensitive information (e.g. photos, credit card info and passwords). WHEN TO USE MCAFEE SAFE CONNECT? We suggest you keep McAfee Safe Connect turned ON to minimize your individual online security risks and to help keep your data private from prying eyes, especially when you are connecting to a public Wi-Fi hotspot or any open network. Unlike home WiFi networks, the vast majority of public WiFi hotspots offered at Cafés, Airports, and Hotels usually aren’t password-protected and don't encrypt the data being transmitted. Therefore, when you connect to a hotspot, your online activities from your social media content to bank account credentials to your online purchase history may be wide open to hackers. Safeguard your online privacy.

  • Continually drops off - horrible app!

    By UnRestored
    The VPN drops off frequently, and more importantly, when it does drop off, there is no warning. The only warnings I have received were when I turned it off myself ...gee thanks, but I don't need a warning when I've turned it off myself, I'm already aware of that fact. How about a warning when it drops on its own and leaves you unsecured, which happens all too often. ———————————- Follow up to previous review: Could this app be any worse than horrible? In this case, yes. I was in a hotel the other day and tried using the vpn. It would not connect at all. When I tried to connect to a different country server, the app would prompt me to upgrade to the premium subscription. Well, I’ve been paying the subscription fee for several months now ...what a waste of money. When I select ‘My Account’ from within the app, it states that my account type is ‘free.’ Now the app states that I’ve reached my limit for the month and I cannot use the app anymore until it resets next month, even though I’ve been charged the subscription fee thru automatic renewal earlier this month. What’s worse than ‘horrible’? ...pathetic, abysmal, worthless? ———————————— Follow up to the follow up: I submitted a support request from within the app as the developer response requested and received no support at all response. My account type still shows “free” and I continually receive alerts that I have reached my 250mb limit ...even though I have been paying the subscription fee for several months now. If you can get this app to work, do a dns leak test, you may not like the results. I’ve canceled my subscription and will be taking my money elsewhere.
  • Worthless

    By Babygirl 21
    This app did not work as intended. Once I tried to cancel I have been unable to. I’ve been charged for two months now. I’ve called customer service and chatted with someone and still got no assistance. I also sent an email to mobile support and no response.
  • Subscription doesn’t migrate after charges...

    By Servant...
    Tried to upgrade services in order to receive unlimited data usage and my status never changed from free status. Product couldn’t be effectively utilized in order to gauge its capabilities. For such a renowned company, I expected more!
  • Premium upgrade

    By EPerrott
    Even though I selected upgrade, every time it encourages me to upgrade again. When I select, it says I have already upgraded to Premium. Further it shows 250mb and decreasing. Under manage, it also shows I have premium, but the app won't acknowledge it. I am dumping the app.
  • Waste of money

    By ultramarine5
    1. Drops off 2. Always trying to upsell a bad product 3. Pricing is confusing, done on purpose to confuse you to buy or upgrade 4. Subscription is a confusing mess 5. If you purchase "this product" review what it does. Nothing but waste your money

    Must protect yourself
  • Disconnects normal?

    By Pwrdude
    I see that getting disconnected is an issue with the app already. How are you supposed to know if there is no notification or auto-reconnect. This is a huge issue in my opinion, gaps are not good, especially in the world we live in today.

    Excellent app. I feel confidence and protect.
  • So Far, So Good

    By Scorpiol13
    I've only had this app for 5 minutes and I'm already asked to leave a review. So here it is. Seems like a good app, created by McAfee who is a well-known, reputable company for cyber security. I was planning to just use the free version, since it was $11.99/mo for premium. However, when I started the app, ad came up saying 40% off at $6.99/mo after 7-day free trial. So maybe I'll keep it at that subscription price. I can always cancel by turning off auto-renewal in app store.

    I am a senior immigrant in Technoland; currently in the capital of dazed, confused and feeling bereft of ALL but ONE of my brain cells. Mcaffee has been relatively easy to install and understand without the typical exhaustive jargon that usually accompanies the set-up of something in this area. Most of the questions I had were anticipated and answered before I even knew they WERE ACTUALLY A QUESTION. GOOD JOB!!
