McAfee announced its latest consumer security portfolio that includes enhanced products with better user experiences such as a native VPN and new features, including integrated social media and technology scam protection. To address cyber threats, and combat over USD 130 million total loss in the US due to coronavirus-related scams, McAfee’s product lineup includes the following updates and enhancements: Tech Scam Protection and Advanced Malware Detection. 

Tech Scam Protection

McAfee WebAdvisor now provides a warning when visiting websites that can be used by cybercriminals to gain remote access to their PC, combating the USD 55 million total fraud loss in the US due to technology scams. 

Advanced Malware Detection 

McAfee said it also enhanced its machine learning functionalities to improve overall time to detect emerging threats across devices as well as added protection against file-less threats. 

Improved customer experience 

At a time where returning to previous routines is still uncertain and internet usage continues to climb, McAfee recognises consumers need intuitive products that allow them to devote attention to what matters most to them right now, including a better user experience; native VPN, as well as updated password protection. The company said it also provides optimised product alerts; social media protection, as well as enhanced app privacy check. 

A recent McAfee survey echoed that employees may remain at home if they have a say, with nearly half (47 percent) stating they don't want to go back to working as they were before the pandemic.
