What the Critics Are Saying...


Top10.com

McAfee Safe Connect has the backing of the McAfee reputation. It’s extremely easy to use, keeps your personal and financial information hidden no matter where you are, and allows you to unblock geo-restricted content without any bandwidth limitations. The free VPN package is very convenient if you’r...

McAfee’s entry-level VPN is an unambitious, overly simplified addition to the privacy market. Lacking key features and scoring poorly on most performance metrics, Safe Connect is a rather disappointing attempt to capture beginner VPN users.

- Nadin Bhatt, VPNpro
Top10VPN

McAfee Safe Connect is a very basic VPN aimed at newbies who want a hassle-free way of hiding their IP address. The annual plan is pretty cheap coming in at just $3.99 per month, and the monthly plan isn’t too expensive either. Local performance is more than fast enough for HD streaming on a few dev...

Apart from customer support, they need to work on every attribute. They must start it by ‘disabling log collection’ as it neglects the reason why we even use the VPN. Adding features that offer more user control should be the second thing. After that, they must work on finding the solutions for deli...

McAfee Safe Connect has the backing of the McAfee reputation. It’s extremely easy to use, keeps your personal and financial information hidden no matter where you are, and allows you to unblock geo-restricted content without any bandwidth limitations. The free VPN package is very convenient if you’re concerned with keeping your details private while traveling, although it understandably doesn’t have the same features as the premium version.

Stay away, unless you just want a very basic VPN service

McAfee Safe Connect is a very basic VPN aimed at newbies who want a hassle-free way of hiding their IP address. The annual plan is pretty cheap coming in at just $3.99 per month, and the monthly plan isn’t too expensive either. Local performance is more than fast enough for HD streaming on a few devices, but access to both Netflix and BBC iPlayer is currently blocked. High latencies on local connections may be off-putting for gamers.

Apart from customer support, they need to work on every attribute. They must start it by ‘disabling log collection’ as it neglects the reason why we even use the VPN. Adding features that offer more user control should be the second thing. After that, they must work on finding the solutions for delivering better speed, probably by improving the server infrastructure. There is no need to target for 90% speed of the original speed, but it must be at least acceptable. Then they can go on with adding servers, and options to sort and filter them.
