Security Mobile IOS -Windows - Anti-Theft

I ordered McAfee I been having things happen for some time. I had a brother pass away few years ago. Well my phone has been sync to a device since 2010 it goes back. McAfee a vault so I gave respect for developers, software companies, hardware companies, individuals, even my last Employer. I turn off my phone yesterday and was going to wipe it clean. Then I remembered I was sharing all the info to prove to my family The reasons why I didn’t have a job. I haven’t seen my kids over a year. So I couldn’t take it I wired money her money into our joint account.
I allowed services to look at my phone. Also knowing what has happening regarding work. My mothers Land Line, yes people the phone line she has since 1968. Over the last 4 months different mobile services and our land no services working can’t make a phone call need to call 911. Well it happen to me. Last weekend with all this going on it happen now my mother 77 we had no way of calling out she looked scared. I trust and would put my confidential information back in McAffee hAnds. I had the vault open deleted some things from home so when I went into Costco to buy security camera I looked at my phone and some one sent out gave all my details of my computer,
Gave passwords to long in my computer.



Nice iPhone app that does what it says

This is a well designed app that has a nice look and feel to it, easy to navigate and enough features to make it a worthwhile application to have on your iPhone. No advertising and just an overall low maintenance app that you will forget is installed on your phone until you need it. Some handy features like the Vault where you can “hide” pictures, documents or phone numbers. It does not offer a backup for your phone but does have the ability to encrypt the file you would include in a backup, a feature where it can track a lost iPhone, sound an alarm to help you locate a lost misplaced phone and a neat feature where once the phone battery is critically low, the app sends up to the McAfee Website a location so that way if the battery does die and you have misplaced your iPhone then it could potentially have the last location you may have left the phone. Best of all its free

VPN turns phone into a paperweight.

Enabling VPN restricts my ability to navigate the App Store, other apps and websites through safari. This is new since ios14. When can this problem be fixed?
I tried to reach out to support to express this issue. You email through the app. Done? Not quite. You will receive an email back stating if you have issues, reach out to this website. Go to the website, they want you to check the community. You select contact support it takes you to another page to check your issue with the community. You select contact support it takes you to another page to check your issue with the community. You select contact support it takes you to another page to check your issue with the community. You select contact support it takes you to another page to check your issue with the community. I don’t want to solve the Sphinx Riddle. I just want to contact support
I just want to report an issue with having VPN enabled. Once it’s enabled, apps won’t refresh their feed, websites will not connect to their server, even the App Store by Apple can not connect. All of these issues started with the latest iOS 14. I paid for a years subscription and now it’s literally going to waste.
Why don’t you just toggle the VPN you ask? The VPN toggle turns itself back on almost randomly. Sometimes I’ll get an hour of doing what I need sometimes less than five minutes before I see the VPN on the top of my screen magical appear, uninvited.
