    Not a must-have at all. Unless you install all kinds of sketchy apps from unknown developers, or you side-load apps from dubious webistes, you don't have anything to worry about.

    But for the tin-foil hat brigade, I'm sure this is something that appeals, and the price is unbeatable.

      So why then do Commonwealth Bank and Paypal need access to your camera?
      You're comment couldn't be more incorrect.

        pretty sure those both use the camera to scan cards.

        Hurrah - the tin-foil hats have arrived! Wake up sheeple! :-)

        You're [sic] terrible grammar and unsubstantiated fear-mongering couldn't be more uninformed.

        As others have pointed out, the camera can be used for bar-codes and reading cards as a convenience to the user. Did you really think that an establishment like the Commonwealth Bank is interested in secretly video-taping their customers?

        Incidentally, the latest version of Android gives the native ability to manage permissions on each application, which is effectively what this McAfee app does. So you can disable the camera if you wish - just don't be annoyed when you lose features.

      Thanks maybe a "might-have" then. All my apps are from the Google Play store but the tin foil hat is always on.

      Err plenty of dodgey apps on the Play Store & I've never met an Android developer. You must have some serious FF miles if you've met all the ones on your phone

      But as with a PC I suspect with any McAfee product the cure is worse then the diease.

        Ideally use built in privacy permissions in custom ROM like CM, or root and install the free app xPrivacy to lock down permissions.
        Pretty much every app out there demands more permissions than it needs. Pretty rude.

    PC version also free for a limited time - http://dvasive.com/wp/lfpc.php

    This product isn't made by McAfee - its made my John McAfee (who was the original creator of McAfee, until he sold it to Intel).

      Ok 8bit. Any mod out there please adjust title if it is an issue.

      Intel purchased Network Associates (McAfee) in 2010, before that in late 90's it was Network Associates that owned the McAfee software, which was a result of a merger between McAfee and Network General. John Mcafee resigned in 1994 then apparently 2 years later sold his remaining shares after the company went public.

      Should check Mr McAfee's videos on youtube.. Not sure if he's all there still, but still entertaining.

    John McAfee is a raving nutjob (these days) so there's no way I'd let anything he's been involved in on my phone.

      Agreed - the guy is a paranoid loony now. I wouldn't touch his apps with a pole.

    Standard feature on Marshmallow, which you should be running if you're serious about security.

    App is redundant and a waste of resources.

    •  

      Not everyone can get Marshmallow on their phone.

        Then they shouldn't be doing sensitive activities on their phone (banking etc.). It's that simple. There's a reason Google push monthly security updates to Nexus devices.

          You mean… so that Google can spy on us better?

          Or do you mean that Android is only suitable as an OS for devices that are sold under Google branding?

          Or what exactly do you mean?

    I'm not entirely comfortable with distinct lack of user avatars on this thread.
