Suspicious activity. Trying to go through the verification process and it keeps trying to send the link to an unfamiliar phone number before displaying an error message and freezing on me. I've tried to perform this action on multiple occasions with the same results every time. Why would it be sending a link to a complete stranger is what has me worried and debating if it's worth the risk of installment. There seems to be a security breach occurring which is never good for business.

So far, so good. I like that you know the app is running from seeing the icon on your screen. It's also nice that the icon gives information, such as memory in use, and it will show you the remaining uptime, if your battery time is low. And, the icon also serves as a place to access options, such as running a scan. McAfee is renowned for being a solid antivirus solution, so that's a further feather in its cap, as far as being a trustworthy source for antivirus on your phone.

This service and the features in the app work well but every time I go into the app to turn on accessibility it works for a few minutes drawing over the apps like it's supposed to do but then it just shuts off and then it doesn't have the real-time protection anymore. This means that I have to go into the app almost every single day turning the real-time protection on! Also the app locker does not work. :c
