Samsung announces McAfee security software comes pre-installed on Galaxy S8 smartphones
According to Samsung, McAfee VirusScan anti-malware technology will be pre-installed on the Galaxy S8 smartphones starting April. Basically, this means that all Samsung Galaxy S8 flagships will come with McAfee's security software right out of the box.
In addition, McAfee VirusScan will be available for Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy Note 5 free of charge.
A similar anti-malware technology will be available in the United States and Korea for Samsung Smart TV customers, whereas additional countries will be added throughout the first half of 2017.
Last but not least, the McAfee LiveSafe cross-device security solution is now being shipped as pre-installed software on all Samsung PCs manufactured, starting in 2017.
However, it's worth pointing out that Samsung PC users will only be able to enjoy 60-day free trials after which they will receive a special offer.
