Opera GX compatabilty with Mc Total Protection

I have recently changed my default web browser to Opera GX and would like to know if McAfee Total Protection is protecting me while I use Opera GX.  I do know the McAfee web advisor extension wont work on Opera GX, but would like if Total Protection still keeps me safe while browsing.

Looking for a simple yes or no answer 🙂

Hello @Jonah7019 ,

We understand your concern here, McAfee does scan for files on the machine, but WebAdvisor is a standalone extension which is not compatible with Opera GX. So it doesnt show annotations and also doesnt scan the downloaded files.

So in layman's terms McAfee does not protect you while using Opera GX and your advising me to use another web browser ?
