McAfee's security software to be installed on Samsung PCs, Galaxy S8 and Smart TVs

Leading cybersecurity firm McAfee announced that it will extend the partnership with Samsung to pre-load its security software on the latter's Smart TVs, PCs and Galaxy S8 smartphones.

According to McAfee, its LiveSafe cross-device security product is currently pre-installed on all Samsung PCs produced since the beginning of the year. Samsung PC users can enjoy a free 60-day trial and receive a special offer after the trial expires.

As for the Smart TVs, McAfee Security for TV is already available in the U.S and Korea for customers. More countries will be added to the list by the end of next month. McAfee Security for TV has anti-malware technology, which should address the security flaws found in the Tizen OS running on Samsung's Smart TVs. 

The Galaxy S8 phones will be shipped with McAfee VirusScan starting from April 2017. No additional purchase is required. The same anti-malware app is also available on the Galaxy S7/S7 edge, S6/S6 edge and Galaxy Note 5. Do note that availability of McAfee's security software will vary by market conditions.

“As the connected world of devices continues to expand into consumers’ homes, Samsung users can feel comfortable knowing that their devices are protected with the latest security solutions,” said Henry Lee, VP of Mobile Security Technologies, and the Mobile Communications Business at Samsung Electronics. “We understand the importance of building security in devices from the start and are proud to offer solutions that provide convenience while keeping our customers safe.”
