By on Jul 30, 2020

Security is a Feeling-  Share it with the McAfee #SecureMyLife RT2Win Sweepstakes!

The word ‘security’ means something unique to everyone. Security is a feeling, an emotion, a sense of belonging and place: It could be the feeling of cuddling as a family in a pillow fort, making sure your house is locked at night, or always having a smartphone in your pocket for directions or an emergency.

Though our digital devices are convenient, they can also be cause for possible security concerns due to overlooked weaknesses. Check out the latest research from the McAfee team for more information.

While all this dazzling technology has its appeal, we here at McAfee understand the importance of creating new security solutions for those who want to live their connected lives with confidence.
