McAfee Security Scan Plus is developed by McAfee Inc. Its primary function is to give protection to your PC from all kinds of threats, including cyber threats, viruses, malware, and phishing. The software can guard you in all situations, and it protects your Windows so that nothing has the operating system, which is the most prone to attacks, and it can severely harm your device. The software also ensures that your identity and privacy are not compromised even on social media sites; it protects your home network so that hackers can not attack you through your Wi-Fi and steal data from devices.
The software is a complete solution to the increasing nuisance of viruses and malware, including the increase in banking frauds and private information leakage. The software even protects you from spyware and other online threats. The basic version of the software is free and provides you the core security. It runs regular diagnostic to check if it is on regularly and determines the virus and malware threat database to check if they're up-to-date. The program ensures the system's smooth running even during the diagnostic process, and it always runs in the background without disturbing the user.
- Once the McAfee Security Scan is downloaded and installed, it takes the user through the tutorial for setting up McAfee. This includes alert options and next scan, cancellation of any pre-scheduled scan, and scheduling of subsequent scans. The software is one of the few that can co-exist with other antiviruses.
- McAfee Security Scan can scan the running processes to keep track of the processes that are going on and eliminate any of them which act suspiciously. McAfee takes hold of the Windows Firewall and makes it better by reinforcing it, and this makes it even harder for security threats to bypass it.
- The software also comes with a browser extension, which protects the user from online threats and suspicious websites. The extension acts as your personal advisor and gives you data regarding the website, and if it is a malicious website, it warns you beforehand. The extension can also block some data on the website that appears as malicious or suspicious content.
- The software has many reliable tools that activate whenever it detects any threat in its scans, and it also works as soon as it finds any suspicious activity from any of the working processes.
