McAfee SiteAdvisor Live Editor's Review

Nowadays, PC users look for more than a standalone antivirus software to boost their PC protection level. If you feel concerned about online safety and need a more secure browsing experience, it is prudent that you use an add-on security tool along with existing security software. One such example is McAfee SiteAdvisor Live. This toolbar integrates with your web browser and offers safety from various online threats and unsafe websites and apps.

McAfee SiteAdvisor Live has a smooth installation process. It can be run on PCs with Windows XP Service Pack 3 and later editions. It supports Windows 8 but lacks support for metro mode.

After installation, the app appears as a button on your browser toolbar. It is compatible with popular web browsers like Chrome and Firefox. Supported email programs include Microsoft Outlook, Yahoo Mail, Gmail etc. the app is also compatible with Instant Messaging Programs like Yahoo Messenger.

The icon of McAfee SiteAdvisor Live uses color coding to represent status of a website you want to browse. Safe sites are indicated with a green icon. The icon turns red when the app detects a fraudulent website or website with malware content. You can also manage trusted websites with it. The app’s Secure Search Box ensures you search results do not show sites with harmful content. It is compatible with all major web search engines like Google and Bing.

McAfee SiteAdvisor Live looks or threats at download levels. If it deems a downloaded file as risky, the process will be halted and you will receive an alert. The app also looks for risky content and links in social media sites. There is a protected mode which requires password usage for added safety.

While the app comes with lots of features that enhance web browsing and download safety, it takes a toll on browsing experience. The slowdown is evident when loading content rich websites. Besides, you need to remember this is no replacement for a fully fledged antivirus and focuses on online usage.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek, minimal UI.
•    Secure Search.
•    Wide compatibility with browsers, IM apps.
•    Protected mode.

Negative Points:
•    Causes sluggishness in browsing.
•    No replacement for standalone antivirus.

McAfee SiteAdvisor Live is a decent browser add-on that complements your existing PC security tool. It can be ideal for those users who spend lots of time online or download a lot of content every day. The tool is simple to set up and configure. It is compatible with major web browsers, email clients and IM apps, as it is. The color coding for indicating site safety is a prudent feature. The app also offers safe search options. Its only drawback is the resource hungry nature which can affect browsing speed.

Rating: 2.5/5
