With the increase in online activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers are potentially becoming exposed to more online threats, and nearly 1 in 3 Americans are not confident in their ability to prevent a cyberattack. Through a partnership with American Express via the Amex Offers Program, McAfee is delighted to offer eligible American Express Card Members personal online security by providing access to comprehensive solutions that protect online security
“Despite the increase in potential risks, consumers plan to continue conducting more and more personal activities online as the post-pandemic new normal comes to fruition,” said Pedro Gutierrez, SVP Global Consumer Sales & Operations at McAfee. “Investing in personal security solutions to protect your online life is a simple way to think security-first, and we’re ecstatic we can now offer these solutions to add value to American Express Card Members.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced many regular activities online, with McAfee’s 2021 Consumer Security Mindset Report finding that internet providers saw household internet usage surge anywhere from 40% to 100% as people worked, studied, shopped and entertained themselves at home. Additionally, McAfee found that of consumers that purchased connected devices in 2020, only 50% acted by purchasing security software and only 1 in 4 checked if their security software is up to date.
Through the Amex Offers program, eligible American Express Card Members can receive a statement credit of up to $15 if they spend $45 or more to purchase personal protection solutions at McAfee.com. The statement credit is available to eligible American Express Card Members until August 24th, 2021 and Card Members should check their offers list for additional details on eligibility, offer redemption instructions and applicable limitations.
