I find that I have come to trust the software completely.
I was traveling on public transport recently,I decided to use the wi if provided.
I had had hardly started when flashing red lights told me this was an unprotected line and get off immediately, that is my kind of software!!!
As you have probably guessed I am elderly which leads to my only small criticism.
Though I am desperate to keep up to date I find it it tricky to put it correctly into the renewal notice.
With this in mind I would like to know if I can
1. If you would accept this note as permission to update the software.
2 if there is an agreement available where you could just go ahead without having to ask me(see how much I trust McAfee)
A quick reply would be appreciated
Yours faithfully

I downloaded this app on the advice of a cyber security expert, no less, and initially everything was great. I paid for the premium upgrade specifically for the VPN, but soon noticed a couple of small issues - images on emails not being displayed, a previously safe website not opening. I tried changing my virtual location, which seemed to work, but then I kept getting a message pop up asking for my VPN password. The only password I had was for my Mcafee account, and this did not work. A very frustrating 20 minutes followed, as the message would not go away, and I could not use my phone while it was up. I tried repeated random strings, hoping to trigger a password reset, but no good. Turning the phone off also did not help. In the end I managed (somehow!) to delete the app, which at least lets me use the phone, but without the security I paid for. Please help either resolve this, or give me a refund. I’m desperate!

McAfee help

That I will leave to you to decide. My boyfriend bought me another new laptop and a McAfee year subscription for Total Protection

I say another laptop as it's the second brand new one he's bought me. Without going into too much detail I will say hacking this is the reason. I managed to get McCafé downloaded long enough to go through the data and discover where and what my laptop is being accessed with and by. I managed to stop it and block it. All good? No it has miraculously undone my 8 hours solid internet time wasted night and I'm back to square one with no McAfee at all. Why? Because scripting, coding and various things are redirecting me to McAfee in disguise sites and it's absolutely pointless. I'm beside myself I really am I don't know what to do please can anyone help me?
