McAfee Unveils McAfee+ Family Plans with $2M in Identity Theft Protection and Personalized Protection for Each Family Member

  • Three McAfee+ Family plan options offer increasing levels of identity and privacy protection for consumers’ digital life
  • Receive up to $2M in identity theft protection and $50K in ransomware coverage*
  • Remove personal information from risky data broker sites with Personal Data Cleanup

Today, McAfee Corp., a global leader in online protection, announced the launch of new McAfee+ Family plans to protect the identity, privacy, and devices of families all under a single plan. Now available in the U.S., McAfee+ Family plans offer robust online protection for up to six family members, including two adults and four minors. Family members can each get their own identity monitoring and alerts, secure VPN, and unlimited device protection. Adults also receive up to $2M in identity theft (up to $1M each for two adults) and $50K in ransomware coverage (up to $25K each for two adults), credit monitoring, and help to remove personal info from risky sites. Parental controls are also included to help keep kids safe online.

According to a recent McAfee study, more than 61%** of consumers feel it is their responsibility to protect the people they care about from online threats – which they say are always changing and hard to keep up with. These consumers are looking for comprehensive online protection, all from a single provider. McAfee+ Family plans answer this need by enabling users to extend the protection they receive with McAfee+ to their whole family, even if they aren’t all living under the same roof, be it kids at college or even elderly parents.

“Every person deserves to be in control of their privacy and identity online,” said Cagla Ruacan, Head of Product Strategy and Insights at McAfee. “We created the McAfee+ Family plans, so each family member has personalized protection and control. We’ve bolstered our offering by introducing new features like Personal Data Cleanup, and identity theft and ransomware coverage to provide greater protections around privacy and identity theft. We want consumers to navigate the digital world feeling confident that they, and their whole family, are safer online.”
