  1. If android is built on linux, isnt it pretty much virus resistant in the first place?
    I dont need McAfee to wreck my pc AND my phone.

  2. Have one word for them, LINUX. No one needs this to reside on their Android phone unless your are ad-hoc tethering a winbox. Mccrap and symantics are a 2 billion dollar a year business built on protecting winjunk. Linux distros including Android does not need it and will never need it.

  3. McAfee have given ace protection on the PCs on my home network for the last 5 years, so I look forward to using it on my phone as well.
