1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed 24 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
Downloaded this as it says it is free, however you then get a message in a couple of days saying it is a trial period for 13 days and you would have to start paying for it. Very misleading.

The app was advertised as 'Free' in the store, but after installing this I found it was a 14 day trial for a paid for service. The was nothing wrong with the app itself but as I felt mislead I uninstalled it.

I use McAfee on my PC and was pleased to see it free in the app store. It was not clear that the package was only for a 14 day trial. Please be clear upfront.

5.0 out of 5 stars protection 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase
This app looks good although more aimed at mobile phones than the kindle fire but still of use
Although it says it's free it isn't quite free in so far as it is a 14 day trial after which you can pay for a year of protection or by a month at a time

1.0 out of 5 stars not free 7 Oct 2013

It's only a trial but then you have to worry if they use your Amazon account to pay for it after the two weeks is up they really should mention this upfront.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid! Only a trial version. 24 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I have just updated my Kindle to a Fire HD and needed some anti-virus software. I usually use AVG for my PC and Smartphone but this was not available in Amazon's APP store so I decided on the McAfee as it is a name I know.
The APP is very misleading. It is only a trial version and to get the full support you need to pay either monthly or an annual subscription. When I tried to remove it from my device I found that I couldn't do this in the normal way. This is because the APP had become a device administrator (without any prompts or permission needed from me)and needed removing from a different part of the settings menu before I could uninstall it.

Great App, much better than Norton, will be using McAfee for all my PCs in future. Very easy to use and does not slow down my system also all.

3.0 out of 5 stars scan for virus 14day limited trail
Ok, it scans for virus. Trading standards would probably have something to say about the screen shots given, only first 3 are free. To buy full setup is in dollars
