When I surf the web from my PC w/ whatever browser I use, sometimes I click on websites that try to install, or try to get you to install, malware on your computer. But McAfee has saved me on several occasions.
How would Android prevent this kind of attack that, for me at least, is not uncommon?
Also, is your sense that McAfee is too much for a $37 LG Rebel Tracfone processing-wise?
Hello. I have a LG Rebel LTE smartphone (Tracfone). My McAfee subscription lets me download it to mobile devices. But I've been reading some websites that have said that McAfee can consume a lot of your phone's resources. Other sites have said that Internet security/antivirus is not as important for Android devices as it is for regular computers. I would ordinarily play it safe and download the McAfee, but this is a cheap phone and I don't want it to process any slower.
I use it for checking email, basic web searches, and for hailing Lyft/Uber rides.
Thanks for the tips!
