McAfee SiteAdvisor

McAfee SiteAdvisor is an award-winning, free browser plug-in that gives safety advice about websites before you click on a risky site. Each day, thousands of times a day, McAfee visits websites and tests them for a comprehensive set of security threats. From annoying popups to backdoor Trojans that can steal your identity, we find the danger zones before you stumble on them. 

How SiteAdvisor Works

With SiteAdvisor software installed, your browser will look a little different than before. We add small website rating icons to your search results, as well as a browser button and optional search box. Together, these alert you to potentially risky sites and help you find safer alternatives.

These site ratings are based on tests conducted by McAfee using an army of computers that look for all kinds of threats. The result is a guide to web safety.

The SiteAdvisor technology is free, easy to install, and even easier to use. Best of all, it doesn't collect any personally identifiable information.

McAfee SECURE service merchants with a green SiteAdvisor rating can display the McAfee SECURE trustmark within search results in Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and other web browsers. Merchants with a red or yellow SiteAdvisor rating will not display the McAfee SECURE trustmark. For details about what SiteAdvisor software does, how we rate sites, and how, as a site owner, you can dispute a rating, review our SiteAdvisor Site Ratings Policies.
