While it is always advisable to use an encrypted network to surf, you invariably bump into sites that compromise with users’ identities, making their personal accounts and PC vulnerable to threats. McAfee SiteAdvisor Plus is a tool that is aimed at providing real-time protection from such sites. It is an improvement of the McAfee SiteAdvisor and has some new features including advanced phishing protection, link checking (checking if links sent through an e-mail message or an instant messenger is safe), and password-protected setting (protected mode) to disable interaction with dangerous ‘red’ sites.

McAfee SiteAdvisor Plus Features

  • Safe Searching – SiteAdvisor throws safety ratings next to search results when one browses search engines like Google, MSN,, Yahoo or AOL.
  • Safe Browsing – A small button in the browser toolbar indicates through changing colours whether you are browsing in a safe zone.
  • Link Checking – Checks external links sent using e-mail and IM applications and warns users accordingly.
  • Advanced phishing protection – A protection against identity thefts, helps users to stay away from fraudulent websites.
  • Know in Advance – Warnings about threatening sites.
  • Protected Mode – Allows a password-protected environment blocking interaction with dangerous sites and downloads.
  • Get The Details – Throws a list of details about sites, so users know whether they are safe to browse.
  • Regular Upgrading – Updates are installed automatically, whenever a new version of McAfee is available.

McAfree SiteAdvisor Plus usually comes with a price tag of $19.99. However, the company is now giving away free 1 year subscription license key code of the new version to Earthlink Toolbar users who can download the tool from the McAfee SiteAdvisor Plus promotion page –
