Do you need additional antivirus software alongside Gamer Security for protection when not gaming?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I just heard of Gamer Security and was intrigued. My question is...do I need additional antivirus protection on top of the Gamer Security tool to be fully protected? For instance, I currently have the McAfee Antivirus Plus software installed on my computer. If I install Gamer Security, do I need both so that the Antivirus protects me when I'm not gaming or will the Gamer Security software provide the same level of protection regardless if I'm playing or not?

Thanks in advance!

Hello @DaHammerofGod 

McAfee Gamer Security  delivers a faster, quieter, safer gaming experience along with protection to your computer. It will protect your computer even when you are not Gaming.

If you are willing to install McAfee Gamer Security, please ensure there is no McAfee Anti-Virus or any other third party Anti-Virus program installed on the computer, as it will conflict with one another.

Please visit our website for more information about this product.
