Mcafee claims its products to be top and most popular security product, Today I heard about Mcafee url shorting service, As I visited the Mcafee Url shortning website, I found that they claimed that their url shortner is safe and secure.

So I thought to test it, I created a Facebook fake login page and tried to shorten it with Mcafee url shortner, hoping that it was detect it and will not allow to shorten it, but I was shocked to see that Mcafee actually showed that the website is safe, see the image below:

Hope Mcafee fix this very soon
