Question about McAfee. I am not tech savvy.

Jump to solution

I got a warning from McAfee (which was already downloaded on my 2 week old computer) that my virus protection expires soon. It then proceeds to say that "700,000 new malwares identified in one single day!" As I said, my computer is very new and I don't think I could have acquired a virus already. And I have been informed by my friends that McAfee is not the greatest antivirus software https://mobdro.onl/ https://vidmate.onl/.

Is this just a scare tactic by McAfee? I am not tech savvy and I haven't gotten any kind of of antivirus software yet.
