Who uses Device Protection (McAfee)?

I keep getting this notice:

it says "Device protection. Off. Last scanned: Never. Turn on Device protection to get additional defense against viruses and spyware. By continuing, you agree to the McAfee End User License Agreements and McAfee Privacy Policy. Powered by McAfee"

There's a Turn On button, with a Tip: "Protect your other devices with a special offer from McAfee for Samsung mobile users." then a link to "Check offers".

I'm not a fan of McAfee, and the notification keeps popping up (I haven't checked yet if I can disable the notification), but after reading what it does (scans lots of things every day), I just don't consider it worth it.

Do you use it? Do you have a good/bad experience with it?
