What are the benefits of removing MacAfee Endpoint Encryption?

The MacAfee Endpoint Encryption software is designed to keep your organization’s data secure. It does this by encrypting files and folders on PCs, laptops, mobile devices, network shares, external hard drives, or USB sticks with 256-bit strong encryption. The downside of the program is that if you want to remove it from your computer system (or device), there are special steps involved in doing so. You can’t just uninstall like most apps because removing MacAfee Endpoint Encryption would mean decrypting all encrypted information which will make any content unreadable without a password. For these reasons alone we recommend against using this type of security software for anything other than small business use cases where you need protection but don’t have too much sensitive data.
