Compatability with Cox/McAfee security package????

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have Cox Cable's security package from McAfee which is included on all of their packages on my desktop, and since I'm in the middle of the 14-day trial period which Malwarebytes offers on its $59.99 Premium product for up to 3 devices, I have a couple of questions for everyone.

I was wondering if adding Malwarebytes to my desktop and other devices such as a tablet or Android phone would be a good idea or a bad idea, and why or why not as the case may be?

I've noticed that several of the board veterans on here have multiple security items listed under their forum names, which led me to wondering about compatibility issues between Malwarebytes and Cox's McAfee package, since I'm confused and therefore seeking advice from everyone on how to proceed.

Thanks!

There shouldn't be any issues using McAfee and MB3 together on your computer. I cannot comment on using MB3 for Android as I do not use it on my phone but it would not be a bad idea if you are not using anything else. Worse comes to worse you may have to set exclusions on your desktop if issues arise, it that occurs just post back here and someone can provide help.
