Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with pre-installed software for “anti-malware protection”

As part of the collaboration between the two companies, all Galaxy S10 models come with pre-installed software for “anti-malware protection.” On top of that, McAfee added Samsung Secure Wi-Fi service, for which the company provides the backend infrastructure.
However, McAfee mentions that secure Wi-Fi is provided in the United States only for T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular customers. Samsung Galaxy S10 owners in Europe will benefit from this service as well but only in selected markets. The South Korean giant will offer 250MB of monthly data volume at no cost, but customers will have the option to purchase unlimited daily or monthly bandwidth.
For the first time ever, Samsung announced that its partnership with McAfee will be expanded to smart TVs, PCs and laptops, which will be protected by similar software that will come pre-installed on its products.

McAfee is the malware and its a proven thing. McAfee is the wrost. No matter how much they want to sugarcoat this thing people with little knowledge know it is bad. What happen to legendary security weapon "Knox"? Didn't Samsung fanboys always gloating about its "enterprise mobile security solution?" Is Knox not good enough? Samsung got really greedy and accept McAfee money to preinsall this malware. Only brain dead Samsung fanboy will defend this decision.

people might not like it but i personally think that its a good thing. since the phone has a crypto wallet and so much hacking can be done via public wifi, if people find a way to hack into the phone and steal your crypto currency samsung would get the blame. sure it's not for everyone but no-one can be safe since everything can get hacked these days.

Well, now people can download "FREE FLASHLIGHT RACING CAR GO GO DELUXE DATA CLEANER" from virus.ru without worrying about malware.

Exactly, let the unintelligent learn their lessons that an app won't make their phones faster or give them better battery life. I mean come on, McAfee??? Doesn't anyone ever do research on "anti-virus" apps? It's almost all bs
