What should I expect from the security check for the McAfee SECURE Certification?

In order to display the McAfee SECURE trustmark you need to pass our security tests. As part of this test, your site will be checked for:

  • Malware
  • Malicious links
  • Phishing
  • Google blacklist status
  • Attack site alerts
  • Compromised site alerts

We may perform additional tests not listed above to ensure no dangerous sites are certified to be secure.

We will check your site at least once week though we may check it more frequently. If your site should fail any part of the security test, you will receive an email alert. Our support team will be able to provide you with additional information about how to address any security issues.   

Remember, you can always sign up for a free account for the McAfee SECURE service and your site will be scanned automatically.
