Much like a firewall protects the data on your computer, a VPN (Virtual Private Network) protects your activity by encrypting (or scrambling) your data when you connect to the internet from a remote or public location so you can hide your IP address and online activity.

While convenient, connecting to public Wi-Fi can expose your sensitive data such as your physical location, banking account credentials and credit card information to prying eyes. McAfee Secure VPN uses AES 256-bit encryption to keep your browsing information private – encryption strong enough to even safeguard banks. Keep your online habits protected at home and on-the-go and minimize exposure of your personal data no matter how you connect online.

We recommend using a VPN when you’re connecting to untrusted, public Wi-Fi networks such as at airports, cafés, and hotels. Using a VPN to protect your personal data is especially important if you plan on making any purchases or financial transactions while connected. With McAfee Secure VPN, we can help turn on VPN automatically on these unsecure networks so you can browse in confidence.

Our Secure VPN works on most devices and operating systems. See system requirements for detailed information about VPN availability and whether it's right for you.

You can connect to almost 50 different countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States. 

Free VPN products often still come at a price, ranging from bandwidth limits or ads to even malware. Read more about the differences here. 

Yes, McAfee VPN is compatible with Android and iOS devices. For more information, visit our system requirements.

It's legal to use a VPN in most countries, including the U.S., however, anything that's illegal without a VPN remains illegal when using one (e.g. torrenting copyrighted material). VPNs are banned by a few countries including China, Russia, Iraq and North Korea.
