It means that each one is protected for just £2.83 for a year.
Amazon says that this would usually cost you £59.99, so you’re saving £51.50, or 86%.
That is true: it’s the price you’d pay after the first year if you want to continue subscribing. However, there’s almost always a discount for the first year of a subscription and McAfee tends to offer it for £24.99, which is £35 off.
We’ve said in the past that £24.99 is good value, so while you could argue that the real saving here is £16.50, there is no denying that a year of top-notch antivirus protection is a no-brainer at £8.49.
Total Protection, as the name implies, offers more than antivirus. You also get protection from ransomware, cryptojacking (where your device is hijacked and used to earn money for cybercriminals) as well as extras such as a file shredder, an extension for your web browser to warn you when you click on dangerous links and a password manager.
McAfee has recently scored top marks for catching malware, and for using minimal processing power, which means it won’t slow down your computer while you’re trying to use it.
