    Trust my passwords to a team who trusts John McAfee?

    I do have some trust issues with that. I think I'll sit this one out.

    with those numbers - they are as small as it gets. It's hard to get big with a physical item... but with software only - all you have to do is freely push it onto enough people at a tiny cost to be adopted....
    This device makes it easy for my girlfriends to steal all my money once they've made sure I'm fast asleep....
    currently - i use passwords to stop this.

    McAfee need to do something to compensate for the poor AV software and easy to hack encryption software. This is going to be something bought by the total security noob and perhaps be the next thing people are going to steal to make access to everything you want to keep safe easy.

    Keep in mind the old adage, physical access means game over. If I were one of your unscrupulous girlfriends looking to steal all of your money, I would start with a key logger on your computer and work from there.

    I get it, put the girlfriend in the safe whilst you sleep.

    McAfee doesn't own the AV company anymore. He sold it.

    There's a nod to that video in the Everykey promo: when he unlocks his email, the middle message reads "How do I uninstall McAfee Antivirus?"
