These answers might help.

At its core, McAfee Total Protection provides our award-winning antivirus to defend against viruses, online threats and ransomware with both cloud-based online and offline protection. Beyond your Windows PCs, McAfee Total Protection provides cross-device protection that extends your peace of mind to your Macs and iOS/Android mobile devices, so you can enjoy security at home and on-the-go across all your compatible devices. 

Available when you’re enrolled in auto-renewal**, our secure VPN uses bank-grade AES 256-bit encryption to keep your browsing information and online habits protected at home and on-the-go.

McAfee® WebAdvisor web protection enables you to sidestep attacks before they happen with clear warnings of risky websites, links and files, so you can browse, shop and bank with confidence. 

PC Optimization features help your PC go faster while ensuring you still have top-notch security. Web Boost helps rescue both your battery and bandwidth from distracting auto-play videos by automatically pausing them. And with App Boost, apps that you’re actively working on will automatically receive a boost in resources, so you can get the job done faster. 

Available with McAfee Total Protection for 10 devices, McAfee® Safe Family provides robust parental controls for your kids’ Windows PCs and Android/iOS devices. Packed with useful features, Safe Family gives you an extra set of hands to juggle your kids’ digital lives, from helping them build good habits to managing their app usage and online time. You can even keep track of their location when they’re getting some much-needed outdoor time. 

Because much of your digital life exists in files on your computer, you can use McAfee® QuickClean™ and Shredder™ to manage your privacy. Use McAfee QuickClean to remove temporary files and cookies to reclaim storage space and minimize exposure. And, when you’re looking to dispose of sensitive files, McAfee Shredder securely deletes files so that would-be thieves can’t put the pieces back together.

Our passwords are the keys to our digital kingdom. Take the guesswork out of creating and remembering complex passwords with our password manager, which can store, auto-fill and even generate unique complex passwords. For added convenience, you can access your shared passwords on your PC and mobile devices with a single account. 

Many vulnerabilities on your PC are due to out-of-date apps. With Vulnerability Scanner, you can update Windows and your apps from one place, streamlining Windows and application updates with a single tool that scans and installs critical updates.

Identity Monitoring Service provides a guided identity monitoring experience including dark web monitoring for your email. Get expanded monitoring with auto-renewal turned on.

McAfee’s Virus Protection Pledge that includes our 100% Guarantee: Viruses removed or your money back, available with auto-renewal.* For more information, see here

For any questions, free customer support is there when you need it, whether by phone, chat or online.

When you open McAfee Total Protection for the first time after installing, you’ll be greeted by a guided tour that will help you run scans and discover capabilities.

Once McAfee Total Protection is installed, you’ll be able to scan for viruses and quarantine/remove them.

McAfee has plans available which cover one, three, five, ten, or unlimited devices. McAfee software is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android devices.

When you are enrolled in auto-renew, 30 days before your subscription is scheduled to expire, the credit card on file for your account is automatically billed, and your subscription is extended for another year. If your auto-renewal has been disabled, you will receive a message 30 days before expiry to inform you that your license is about to expire. You can then choose to renew your license for another year or purchase an upgrade.

McAfee Total Protection is compatible with laptops, desktops, tablets and mobile devices. You can find operating system compatibility on our System Requirements page.

If the McAfee Total Protection subscription expires, your software and security will deactivate. Once your antivirus software's subscription has reached its expiration date, you’ll need to decide whether to resubscribe, purchase another solution or install a free solution. Otherwise, your computer will become susceptible to numerous virus threats.

Your score is based on a few things, including setting up your McAfee protection, strengthening your security with our safety recommendations, and ensuring your personal info is safely monitored with Identity Protection. For example, if your information is exposed in a data breach your score may drop, but you can improve it by following our easy-to-follow remediation steps. A perfect score does not mean you’re perfectly safe, but it does mean that you’re doing an excellent job of preventing and managing risks.

How did McAfee choose which data broker sites to monitor?
We selected the sites that we think pose the most privacy threats by looking at a number of criteria, including how prominent they are online, how much data they have in their database, the types of information they collect, and if a site is a data source for other people search sites. While no one can ever be completely immune from privacy and identity risks, knowing where your personal data is being collected and sold is a step in the right direction to reclaiming your privacy online. ​

How often does McAfee scan for my data on these sites?
We’ll automatically scan for your data every three months if you are enrolled in a plan that supports full-service removal. ​

How long does it take for McAfee to remove my data?
The time it takes to remove your personal data will vary based on the site. Most will remove your personal data within two weeks, while some can take up to 45 days. For plans that include full-service removal, we’ll reach out to the sites on your behalf, and follow up with them to make sure that your data gets taken down. When it’s all done, we’ll let you know via email and here in your McAfee Protection Center. ​

Can I request the sites to remove my data by myself?
Yes, you certainly can. However, the process of manually reaching out to each individual people search site is time consuming – you might just find yourself with a new weekend job. You may even have to provide them with more of your info before they will remove profiles about you. McAfee’s Personal Data Cleanup can do this for you.

Setting up family protection is simple. Just enter an email address or mobile phone number for each person you want to invite.

Your family member will get a message to log in along with steps to set up protection for their computers, phones, web browsing, and passwords. They’ll also have their own identity monitoring to receive alerts when their personal data is found on the dark web. 

Two adults can also set up credit monitoring, find their personal info on data broker sites to remove it, and clean up personal info from old online accounts.  

Each family member will have their own notifications and log in where they can check their Protection Score along with recommended steps to improve their score and overall online safety.

Parental controls provides you with the ability to supervise and keep your kids safer online. When you sign up for a family plan, you’ll receive easy instructions to get set up with the parental controls app.

  • See what your kids are up to: View your kid’s device activity and location at a glance from your phone or desktop.
  • Set rules and time limits: Start off with age-based rules for apps and websites that you can customize based on your kid’s needs.
  • Know where your kids are: Locate them on a live map and receive automated notifications when they enter or leave familiar places like a school or the library.
  • Family requests: Collaborate with your kids by allowing them to request extra app time or access blocked apps or websites.

What's included in McAfee+ family plans?
Family plans come with identity theft protection, online privacy, and device security for up to 6 family members (up to 2 adults and 4 children) without having to share logins. Each family member can set up their own identity, privacy, and device protection features in the way that works best for them. 

Each family member gets their own, Individual Protection Score, which shows how safe they are, with guidance on how to improve their protection. Plus, parents can help keep their children safe online and limit their risk exposure with parental controls. 
How do I share the subscription with my family?
To share your subscription with your family, log in to My Account and click Manage users and devices. From there, you can send an invitation to each family member to join your plan. Each family member will be able to set up their McAfee account and complete the setup for their online protection.
Why does my spouse need online protection if I already have it?
Every one of us has valuable personal data and our online privacy to protect. When you add your spouse as an adult family member on your family account, they will be able to set up and manage their own identity and credit monitoring, Personal Data Cleanup to remove their info from data broker sites, and more. They’re also covered with up to $1 million in case of stolen identity and up to $25K for ransomware.
How many people can I add to my family plan?
You can add up to 5 additional people to your family plan for a total of 2 adults and 4 children (minors). 
Why should my children have online protection?
Kids need protection in many of the same ways adults do. They have Social Security Numbers, which if used for identity theft, could affect their credit standings. They also have usernames and email addresses that could be part of a data breach, finding their way to the dark web where criminals can access them. 

When online, children (and adults) need to be notified when a website or link is risky and could lead to a phishing site or a malware download. And of course, device protection on their computers and phones can save them from online threats like viruses and hackers. 
How will minors be able to manage their online protection?
The account owner can invite members as either an adult or a minor. Minors (and adults) will have access to their own accounts on the McAfee Protection Center. However, minors have access to fewer identity and privacy features than adults. 

As a parent, you can choose to set up and manage your child’s account yourself and access the account in the McAfee Protection Center in order to stay on top of your child’s online protection settings, notifications, Protection Score, and recommended steps to improve your child’s online safety.
As the purchaser (admin), can I see all other family member McAfee+ accounts?
As the account owner, you can see all users and their devices. However, you will not be able to access family members’ Protection Score, settings, and alerts.
What comes with parental controls?
The internet is a wide-open world and parents can’t always be there to supervise what their children are accessing or who their communicating with online. McAfee+ Family plans include the tools you need to:
  • view device activity easily from your phone or desktop
  • set app and website rules and time limits
  • locate your kids on a live map and receive automated notifications when they enter or leave familiar places
  • collaborate with your kids by allowing them to request extra app time or access blocked apps or websites.
Can I add someone like my parent or child who doesn’t live in my home as a member on my family plan?
Yes, family is what you make it. Add one adult and up to four minors to your plan no matter where they live. It’s simple to get them set up. Just enter their email address and they’ll get a message with instructions.
If family members leave my plan does my price change?
No, the price of your plan will not change if family members leave your plan. You can still make the most of your plan by adding someone else to take their spot!
How does payment for the family plan work?
The purchaser (account owner) of the family plan is the only person who can manage payment and payment settings.
Can I change the primary account owner?
The purchaser of the plan will always be the primary account owner.
What devices and OS are compatible with McAfee+?
McAfee+ is compatible with laptops, desktops, tablets, Chromebooks, and mobile devices. You can find operating system compatibility on our System Requirements page.
