What Does SiteAdvisor Software Do?

McAfee uses an army of test computers to literally test the Web for everything from spam to spyware to phishing to viruses. When you install SiteAdvisor software, we add small site rating icons to your search results as well as a browser button. Together, these alert you to potentially risky sites and help you find safer alternatives.

Safe Guard Your Search Results

With SiteAdvisor software installed, your browser will look a little different than before. We add small site rating icons to your search results.

Secure Search

Use the Secure Search box to block risky sites, to avoid typo mistakes and for all your safe searching needs.

SAFE: Very low or no risk issues.
CAUTION: Minor risk issues.
WARNING: Serious risk issues.

Site Rating

SiteAdvisor site ratings are based on tests conducted by McAfee using an army of computers that look for all kinds of threats.
