The newest version of McAfee Total Protection has a elegant design and a simple user interface. The main dashboard is decluttered and consists of three feature categories: PC security, identity and privacy. A status banner is included that provides alerts and reports.
Webroot, on the other hand, features a more minimalist design. Its products feature a simple, intuitive interface that does not use excessive resources on the system. The user interface is divided into abstract sections, and the main dashboard displays your license period and the status of your device as well as the most recent scan results.
McAfee is more effective in protecting against malware than Webroot. Its Antivirus + Internet Security suite has a higher score than Webroot in AV-Test and AV-Comparatives. Its Realtime Shield and Infrared Protection Engine collaborate to stop malware and learn to identify the emergence of new zero-day threats. The company’s Secure Erase feature is a perfect way to permanently delete files on House windows and Mac computers by erasing them with random data which makes it impossible for malware and other unapproved software to recover the original content.
