SiteAdvisor and privacy? (i.e. intranets, etc...)

Jump to solution

I am curious, I have just installed Internet Security w/SiteAdvisor and it says that my internal intranet is safe. How does it know this? Is it actually sending private information to McAfee where they scan the content and determine if it's safe? What about when I am reading email via my web browser, is my email content sent to McAfee?

It's just mis-reading it as a link and no personal or private information is sent back to McAfee.

Does McAfee keep/share the places that I have visited? (i.e. the links checked on my behalf)?

I believe it only knows sites visited and their ratings but not by whom they are visited - it's anonymous.

McAfee being a security company is dedicated to Privacy with a capital "P".

You could ask that question yourself.
