McAfee SECURE sites help keep you safe from identity theft, credit card fraud, spyware, spam, viruses and online scams

Each day, thousands of times a day, McAfee visits websites and tests them for a comprehensive set of security threats. From annoying pop-ups to back-door Trojans that can steal your identity, the danger zones are found before you stumble upon them.

SiteAdvisor software works with Internet Explorer (Windows only) and Firefox (Mac and Windows). McAfee rates more than 90% of the Web for safety.

How the McAfee SiteAdvisor safety ratings protect you...

With SiteAdvisor software installed, your browser will look a little different from before. Small site safety rating icons are added for the websites in your search results as well as a browser button and (optional) search box. Together, these alert you to potentially risky sites and help you to find safer alternatives.


These site ratings are based on tests conducted by McAfee, using an army of computers that look for all kinds of threats (detailed below). The result is a guide to Web safety.


The SiteAdvisor technology is free, easy to install and even easier to use. And it doesn't collect any personally identifiable information.
