What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Auto-renewal is needed: By default, McAfee monitors only email addresses found on the dark web. To activate other types of monitoring, such as Social Security number and health ID monitoring, you need to sign up for auto-renewal.
  • Customer support: McAfee's customer support is trained to respond to antivirus-related queries, making it a bit more difficult to get more information about identity protection.
  • No Month-to-Month pricing: All of McAfee’s plans are annual. You’ll save more in the long run, but that can be a big commitment for some people.

Bottom Line

McAfee is one of the biggest names in device protection, but their identity theft services are a little lacking. It’s fine for a mid-tier service, but you’re definitely going to notice some blind spots.
