  • Inconsistent

    By D Ah Na
    There are unannounced and unexplained gaps in protection.
  • Never works.

    By SoLuckyNow
    I am currently overseas for a period of time and purchased this VPN service to protect my information. Since I have started using the app it has given me nothing but trouble. While it works half the time on my laptop (Windows) it almost never works on my iPhone. There are two major issues with it. The first issue is that it will continually fail to connect to the VPN servers. When it does, it will disconnect from them frequently causing you to have to manually reconnect. The second issue is the app itself. When the app is opened, it will not pull up the drop down menu to select which server to connect to. This is especially frustrating if the server you have already selected won’t connect. When attempting to reach any sort of customer support, the app will only bring up an error screen. In short, I would like my money refunded so I can purchase a more reliable and robust VPN service.

    I had so much malware and tracking sites that went undetected by this app. What is the point if the one thing it is made for was to steer you clear of malware and tracking sites. I never got a warning I just realized my phone operated better without. If you use the free version expect free quality. I would pay for a vpn and mobile security if I at least knew it functioned. Anyway as for Mcafee I know they are one of the best at online security but these cheap apps do nothing. Just my opinion. If it works for you go crazy.

  • McAfee Live Safe

    By Dirty Scammer
    If you purchased McAfee LiveSafe on Mac, what benefits does that purchase offer, as far as, living safe while being live & protecting identities and what is the difference between the mobile app SafeWeb VPN & The McAfee Safe Connect VPN app and why isn’t it part of a McAfee yearly subscription to LiveSafe ? Why is that a separate subscription to an already existing subscriber ? Are these programs even needed in a constitutionally based country or are we under attack by cyber terrorists and our device property is expensively useless from the factory ?
  • Bad service overall

    By Edali05
    I should have known since it is powered by Hotspot Shield. It is so complicated and customer service is the worst if you ever figure out how to get in touch with them. The app has the worst help options. It worked good for a little, but as soon as there is a change, everything is de-synched and good luck restoring purchase. I am getting billed for an account they say it does not exist
  • Robber app

    Me encanta todas las aplicaciones de desarrollo en McAfee... la mejor app para simular ubicaciones y seguridad de redes... sigan desarrollando más aplicaciones en McAfee.
  • Drops or won’t work

    By J-Reed28
    During the trial, there were minor issues such as once you press the start protection button then there would be a message stating, Oops something went wrong” but it would eventually connect after 3 tries. The worst is when you actually purchase this worthless service that is when all heck breaks loose and their true colors show. The service drops constantly, it never connects when you are in dire need of it, and there is always an error. I want a refund because I’m not even a week into paying for this terrible service. They should just go bankrupt already. It IS NOT WORTH PURCHASING. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
  • What?

    By hduytugnt
    I tapped the option for the free 7 day trial but it automatically charged me $47.99 for the year subscription. Don’t say you off a free trail then charge people anyway. That or fix what ever bug is causing this. For this being an company that claims to keep people safe on the internet it’s odd that your app doesn’t work right.
  • It’s Not Worth It

    By MrsWealth
    I purchased this and I couldn’t log o to any websites and my apps were not working. I had to disconnect the app and now home works just fine. This needs to be removed until it is thoroughly corrected. I need to remove from my device but am unable to cancel subscription where my purchases are. Please cancel. I don’t want to be charged.
  • Works as advertised

    By dmv&3
    Updating review as tech support has now resolved the bug that was causing problems
  • Simply Brilliant

    By Chipper~1988
    Nice and Simple, easy to understand and work.
  • Doesn’t cross over to iPhone

    By hajibro
    I bought the app online on my laptop. It isn’t working on the iPhone and isn’t properly showing up in my Accounts when I log in. Then I had to spend over an hour on the phone with customer service to get it fixed. Waiting for them to get back with me. Who has time for that kind of incompetence and why should I trust their technology if they can’t do a simple sale?
  • Deleted this app

  • Worst VPN Ever

    By Robin.SanFrancisco
    I used VPN in my iPhone since 2012. By far this VPN is the slowest VPN of all time. Very few locations to choose from. Either as a free or paid VPN, you are not good at all. Your UI is buggy and very confusing to use. Your network is so slow that my 7 years old daughter can not even watch good quality YouTube Videos, it always shows the loading icon. It also refuses to connect to your server all the time, sometimes it connects and sometimes I need to try 10 times to let it connects. Your Design also looks like old school UI, kind of Windows NT interface. McAfee is a great brand, please do not lose your brand value with this very poor quality VPN service. Please improve your network and upgrade your UI as well. I see you are advertising heaving everywhere. Please do not do that, instead of wasting money by advertising your poor quality app, invest that money in your product and VPN servers. Otherwise, you keep losing your long term fan like me. Hope this review helps you to make this app a better product
  • Not working after app update

    By abhi130687
    App stop working once it got updated on my iPhone. Also it is not allowing to login Not able to recover my five device connection Even the free version dnt connect anymore.
  • Terrible

    By J Almeida
    They sell the app, do not do the service and do not give the money back. Do not hire it. There are more than two months that I cannot access my paid subscription, due toma technical issue created by Mcafee after updating their app. Nobody solves the issue. They do not give my money back. It is a shame. I paid for a full year subscription. Now they have my money, but they do not give the service. Horrible experience. Support just say: we are working to solve the issue. Horrible!
  • DON'T BUY.

    By Faulkton
    This is complete garbage. I won’t stay connected, everything slow PAINFULLY slow! Topping it off it auto reconnects to network WITHOUT being secure... Even if you're phone is set to not connect. SO YOU'RE EXPOSING PRIVATE DATA WITHOUT KNOWING IT! Glad they stole $50 from me. This is on new XS Max and same GARBAGE on new and old iPad pro.......
  • Terrible Order Experience and Customer Service

    By BroadClarity
    I tried to sign up for a free seven-day trial and was charged for a year. The charge showing on my account history didn’t have an amount showing and had a different order number than the one in my email receipt, and I spent almost 40 minutes trying to get it cancelled and refunded in what should have been a five-minute call at most. I also was unaware that Safe Connect is only for iOS and Windows, excluding Mac OS, which totally defeats the purpose for multiple device coverage for Mac users. I strongly recommend looking elsewhere for a VPN service.
  • McAfee charging me twice to use their product

    By dhillen
    First I installed McAfee safe connect on my PC $7.99 a month for up to 5 devices. Downloaded the McAfee safe connect on my IPhone and used my user name and password I created for my PC everything worked great. The iPhone app updated and after the update the app wouldn't except my user name and password and was charged another $7.99 for the month on my iPhone. I now have it on my PC and Phone and I'm being charged 7.99 a month for each one. I'll be removing it from my phone after this review. After contacting McAfee customer service we got to the bottom of the problem and all is good so I changed my rating from 1 star to 5 star as I never had a problem with the product per se as it's easy to use and works as advertised.
  • Poor customer service 2554882804

    By C82C
    WARNING!!⚠️ DO NOT USE MCAFEE⚠️ Paid for a subscription, have nothing. I have sent my confirmation number OF PURCHASE I have sent my work order number, I was sent to 6 other people, then promised an email that never came. I have spent hours on the phone trying to get someone to solve the problem. If you’re looking to throw money away, this it. There are better VPN services out there. Very unhappy with McAfee and I have been a loyal customer till now. This is the second reason in reference to customer support # 2554882804 I have proof of purchase that I have emailed my confirmation number of this purchase. Last call with mcafee on Sunday said they would call back in 48 hours. THEY NEVER CALL BACK DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY THEY DO NOT EMAIL WARNING WARNING ⚠️ POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE PRODUCT DOES NOT WORK AFTER UPGRADE
  • Subscription not recognized in iPhone

    By Jagadhesh
    I have unlimited access which I bought in September and was working on my iPhone but for some reason after the recent two application updates my subscription is not working. I have logged off and logged in multiple times and still the app asks me to upgrade to premium and asks for payment too.
  • Awesome

    By ádßwér
    This app started to protect me right away and I got a little vpn icon
  • legit VPN but horrid

    By Bri9909
    This is a legit VPN I have T-Mobile mcafee mobile security premium that is a great thing T-Mobile offers but this VPN is the worst ever! It always disconnects every time my phone goes off the screen never ever stays connected even after being a previous user I canceled my subscription! Loose the APP!!!!
  • Extremely slow data transfer

    By Jtrack1921
    After the new “sleek” UI update, it has been extremely frustrating and very slow. Before this latest update, I was unable to even tell that the VPN was activated because my data speeds were unaffected but now there is some serious data throttling going on. Would no longer recommend a paid subscription to this at the moment until it’s resolved.
  • Update Ruined Everything.

    By satanismyfemaledog
    VPN was working fine.. until the new update. I’m pretty sure it’s because the place i use the vpn blocks a certain type of vpn connection (IKEv2), but before, there were others. Now i can’t even use my subscription i paid for. Extremely disappointed. Please add this feature back as it’s a must have for me. (IPsec) (L2TP)
  • Think about this

    By shaozts
    The app slows down all data usage. Even your mail box.

  • how do i delete this app?

    By Hawsome11
    this is horrible i downloaded this app and it will not delete off my iphone! i don’t want to get charged $7.99 a month for this!
  • Great Product!

    By GE-Sa'Linda
    I rely on McAfee even for my Home & Office computer. I wouldn’t use any other product for this level of security other then McAfee. Now a days you need all the best protection you can get with all the different ways that everyone’s information is being hacked into. For my peace of mind McAfee is the only way to go.
  • I was charged for free trial

    By debjunie
    I was charged for the trial and now it is giving me the same screen asking to sign up for the trial when I have already paid? What if I don’t like it I have never had this happen before with other apps my card shouldn’t have been charged until September 15th I’m not happy:(
  • Program doesn’t work!

    By JPerez6509
    This program has never worked on my I phone 7 plus, it just locks up my phone. When I tried to get the billing turned off I first contacted Apple who then said contact McAffee. Tried that spoke to 2 different people 2 different times who both said it was taken care of, I just got billed again! This time the help desk phone line hung up on me! Over all only thing that works right is the billing.
  • VPN

    By SW/123
    I am not happy with the vpn service, it causes my apps to crash. How do I cancel?
  • No connection

    By brendupx
    Since downloading I have barely been able to access anything that needs internet connection. Whether WiFi or data it made it so the connection was so patchy It wouldn’t even load. Gave it a chance and definitely not worth it. Rather be able to correctly use my phone then use an app that slows it down rather then protect it.
  • Can’t cancel

    By So annoyed cant cancel
    DO NOT download this unless you want to be stuck with it. I sent an email to cancel 4 days after I signed up and months later they are still billing me. Even though I told them I have the email to prove I asked to cancel, they said they could only refund me for one month. I’ve had to dispute the charges with my credit card company. Also it interferes with so many tasks.
  • Cancelación

    By betsynoemi
    Esto es muy costoso, quiero cancelar esto, siempre están descontando dinero, no quiero mas esto.
  • Made my iPhone not work

    By okjsanosjidnojwirfn
    I had to uninstall the app for my iPad and iPhone to work. Very unhappy with this. If it’s on my iPhone or iPad it won’t let me connect to anything, and the WiFi is very slow when the app is installed.
