McAfee will deliver its LiveSafe service worldwide as a preinstall on select new HP consumer and commercial PCs. McAfee LiveSafe is the first cross-device security service that protects consumers’ data, identity and all the PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets a user owns. Mike DeCesare, president of McAfee says,” We’re entering a new age in computing, where people expect to be able to work, play, invent and explore the digital world without fear. By helping keep all devices safe, we are empowering people to take advantage of all the amazing things this connected world has to offer.” McAfee LiveSafe service includes the Personal Locker feature that uses face and voice authentication technology to retrieve a user’s most sensitive personal information and sensitive documents, such as copies of passports and IDs, from a secure online location. In addition to protecting consumers from the latest online viruses and threats for each device a user owns, the McAfee LiveSafe service also offers simplified and automated management of usernames and passwords; privacy protection for smartphone and tablets; and several additional security capabilities.
