When it is protecting PCs from viruses and malware Both McAfee and Webroot have a good reputation. Which is the better choice? It’s based on many aspects, including performance of the system and malware protection, user experience, features and compatibility.

The best part about Webroot is its light-on systems software that uses cloud technology and heuristic analysis to help keep your computer safe. The antivirus suite focuses on consuming fewer system resources than other antivirus software to avoid slowing down your computer. It also provides a wide variety of security features, including rapid scans, LastPass password manager, 25GB of secure online storage, and shredders for data.

In the area of malware protection both McAfee and Webroot are able to ensure your device is protected from ransomware, phishing, rootkits, spyware, and more. However, the malware detection engine used by Webroot is more advanced and is able to stop a greater variety of threats than that is available in McAfee. It also comes with a real time shield and an infrared technology to stop new threats at the very beginning of attacks.

When compared to McAfee Webroot provides speedier installation and scanning, lighter system load on devices, and lower memory use. Webroot also has a beautiful and clean interface. It’s not equipped with many of the top features that McAfee has, such as a password manager as well as a VPN. The only feature it has that McAfee doesn’t is its System Optimizer, which clears space on a device through the elimination of junk files and making sure that deleted data isn’t recovered by hackers or malware.
