The cyber security company said other innovations include protection against malicious coin-mining with McAfee Cryptojacking Blocker, and the introduction of a new product – McAfee Gamer Security.

“Our new lineup reflects features that will make it easier than ever to protect what matters most to our customers in their daily online activities, while delivering enhanced performance and industry leading security,” Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee, said in a statement.

McAfee Safe Connect is available on Windows, Android, iOS and for download via various app stores. It protects user privacy by encrypting online activity, meaning users can browse privately and enjoy unlimited data use.

Cryptojacking Blocker, which has been added to McAfee Web Advisor and protects against malicious coin-mining, detects more than 150 variants and scripts of coin mining malware on infected websites and blocks this malicious code from running.

McAfee said the company’s Gamer Security is available in the U.S. for one PC at $59.99 / year.
