Facebook Partners With McAfee To Offer Security Software

If you’re currently evaluating antivirus software for your computer, you might want to take note that Facebook has partnered with McAfee to offer all of its 350 million users free security software for a 6-month period. It’s good to see websites take an initiative to help its users out with the security side of things. That being said, there is a minor catch, as it’s only available for Windows-based computers and you’ll need to provide your credit card information or Paypal ID along with your billing address, so when the 6-months are up, McAfee can automatically bill you to continue your subscriptions. Of course, you can always cancel before the 6-months period and you won’t be billed for anything, but how many people will forget and unknowingly get a renewal billed to them?
