Review

These days, without the proper anti-phishing protection, you are exposed to various risks while browsing the Internet. Other users might attempt to steal valuable information from your PC, such as usernames, passwords, credit card details, and much more. SiteAdvisor from McAfee is an app developed to help you prevent these unfortunate events from occurring.

After you install this browser tool, you can launch the SiteAdvisor executable from your Applications folder, configure its security settings, and you can start browsing while being safe.

An important advantage of working with this app is that it informs you if there are any security issues on a website before accessing it. In addition, the program allows you to keep a list of webpages that cannot be blocked by SiteAdvisor when accessed.

To sum things up, this application proves to be a reliable solution when it comes to browsing the Internet without worrying about phishing attacks. The program is very simple to configure, offers you the information you require in minimum time, and comes with no price.
