McAfee+ offering Identity Protection
McAfee has announced the launch of McAfee+, a new product line that encompasses privacy and identity protections.
This new product suite is a standout and will provide services such as Personal Data Clean-up, always-on credit monitoring and reports, credit lock and security freezes, $1 million identity theft and stolen funds coverage, $25,000 ransomware coverage, identity restoration, and the ability to secure devices with protection against threats and viruses.
McAfee+ now protects Chromebooks. Chrome OS users can install and access McAfee capabilities on their Chromebooks, including antivirus, virtual private networking, safe browsing, and identity monitoring.
McAfee+ provides online protection, such as removing PII from unnecessary and risky locations online, including people search sites and data broker sites that sell this information to advertising companies, and hackers. The service also features proactive monitoring of the dark web for PII along with the integration of McAfee’s antivirus products and Secure VPN.
McAfee+ offers three different plans: Premium, Advanced and Ultimate. The McAfee+ Ultimate plan is the only plan with insurance coverage and includes other features such as unlimited VPN access and credit monitoring and alerts from three major bureaus.
McAfee+ is initially available only in the U.S., with plans to launch the service in the U.K., Canada, and Australia in near future.
