McAfee is one of the leading security companies with millions of subscribers from all over the world. Since its introduction in the computer security and protection field, there is still no other counterpart of McAfee that can exactly bout its good reputation and years of tested experience in providing modules aimed at delivering greatest protection for your laptops and computers.
With every computer technology evolution, McAfee never fails to contest with other well established security providers and even exceeds what these high profile companies lease in the marketplace. With today’s several malicious attacks coming from skilled cyberpunks and experienced hackers who try to threaten almost every file in your PC or laptop, a security software is almost likely a necessity to be found in your electronic gadget like laptop. And, when it comes to protecting your unit from unwanted risks, McAfee is the trusted name.
McAfee 2013 is the latest security from McAfee, which is truly a sought-after protection for guarding your personal files in your laptop.
Here are the pros and cons of McAfee 2013:
Just like other previous versions of protection software from McAfee, McAfee 2013 takes almost zero time and requires almost the same zero effort in the installation of the software- from downloading all the way to updating with the latest versions. Once you click to purchase, you can have it downloaded from exactly the same site where you found it unlike other security companies asking you for some sort of product code or email verification. Downloading the McAfee 2013 software is hassle-free and easy.
Due to its simplicity, the McAfee has lesser tendency of slowing down and lagging behind compared to other highly-designed security rivals. In this way, you are rest assured that whenever you run the software for scanning purposes, it will run smoothly until the end of the process. This could also be one of the main reasons why McAfee 2013 has gained a lot of positive feedback from its million users.
Perhaps the McAfee 2013 cons outweigh the software’s benefits. Primarily, McAfee 2013 is said to be just as identical as its earlier version of security software, which is the McAfee 2012. Many believed that this 2013 version is rushed to be leased in order to have something from its brand line to compete with the other security companies at almost the same release dates. One of the consequences is the lack of features and impressive performance which are found in other software that were also released currently.
Perhaps McAfee 2013’s biggest hitch is its user Interface. While other top security companies are putting much time and effort in improving their software’s usability and design with every released security software, McAfee continues to use completely untouched Interface, which is seen in almost all its earlier software versions. This makes the software boring, lacking of catchy appearance, and very old school in terms of drop down menus. This gives a real dull moment to McAfee users.
In terms of AV test, McAfee 2013 only scored 1 out of the 3 stars which is the perfect score. Many of the McAfee adversaries scored 3 out of 3 that means they are more preferred than McAfee in terms of dependability of its different components working together to combat viruses that a computer or laptop may acquire. In fact, the highest score McAfee recently received was 2 mainly for the reason that the software only warns the user when an attempt to access a particular high-risk site is made instead of blocking the site that can threaten the security of the unit. More so, the McAfee 2013 exactly contains the same tools as the 2012 version did, making it a total disgust to millions of McAfee users.
Though McAfee has promised to deliver McAfee 2013 updates shortly, many users have partially lost their entire trust to McAfee, despite its efforts to fulfill its promises. The lacking of new and impressive features in McAfee 2013 somehow impacts the reliability of future security software from McAfee.
