McAfee has lots of free features, but you can do better in terms of malware protection. Get Bitdefender if you can afford $15 a year and Kaspersky if you can’t.
McAfee Mobile Security offers an abundance of free features and a paid tier that removes the ads from the app. Unfortunately, unlike the similar Avast Mobile Security, the paid tier is pretty expensive compared to other best Android antivirus apps, and McAfee removed many of its most useful features in the summer of 2021.
While McAfee has earned decent malware-protection scores in lab tests over the last couple of years, it hasn’t matched the consistency of Bitdefender Mobile Security or Norton Mobile Security. Those cost, respectively, half as much and the same price as McAfee’s Premium tier.
