McAfee Net Guard is McAfee’s Firewall function that monitors every incoming connection to your device. It immediately blocks suspicious or risky connection to ensure the security of your personal information. The dedicated security solution keeps a strict vigil over your web activities so that no virus can intrude the layer of protection created around your device for the security of your software/apps and the privacy of your confidential data.
Net Guard runs hundreds of security checks and it also has a pre-defined collection of known good and known bad IP addresses and domain names. If you attempt to access a website which falls under bad domain names then Net Guard won’t allow you do that. However, if you want to file a rating dispute and allow a few blocked websites then this article is for you.
