    Security Tips


    Create Complex Passwords
    Strong, unique passwords keep your information safe.


    Click Smart
    Be weary of anything that requires personal information: spam emails, free offers or even online quizzes.


    Be a Selective Sharer
    Be cautious about what you share, particularly when it relates to your identity or company data.


    Protect Your Mobile Life
    Use caution with mobile devices; only download apps from official apps stores and don’t click on suspicious links or text messages


    Practice Safe Surfing and Shopping
    Be cautious about what you share, particularly when it relates to your identity


    Keep Software Up to Date
    Keeping all your software up to date with the latest versions will greatly reduce exposure to common threats.

    Protect Against


    Yes, McAfee LiveSafe is compatible with Microsoft® Windows 10. Not only will the software protect your new device, but it also offers superior protection for ALL the devices you own—computers, smartphones,* and tablets* with one subscription.
    While setting up a new Dell PC, please complete registration by entering a valid email address to ensure it’s running the latest available version. Once registered, an email from McAfee will be sent to the email address with links to download additional security. Simply access the email from an unprotected device and follow the on-screen prompts. Also, other innovative features are available after registration.
    McAfee LiveSafe offers enterprise grade technology which consistently outperforms Windows Defender as measured by 3rd parties (e.g. AV-Test). Additionally, it provides an easy way to see, configure, and manage your security features and devices—all in one place. Security features, such as firewall and parental controls, in Microsoft® Windows 10 are scattered throughout the operating system. Without a way to setup these features from one location, managing security is a cumbersome process.
    Over the years, McAfee has significantly reduced the resources it requires to keep customers safe. This combined with the enormous processing power of computers, has improved the user experience.
    Free online security is available; however, most provide basic protection and are not multi-level integrated security suites like McAfee LiveSafe.
