If you become a victim of identity theft, a licensed identity restoration expert will work with you to fix it.

We monitor your personal info for breaches so you can take action to secure your
accounts before they can be used for possible identity theft.​

These answers might help.

Identity theft refers to the unauthorized use of an individual's personally identifiable information (PII), such as name, social security number, bank information, and other sensitive information that can compromise a person’s privacy, security, and financial assets.

You can protect yourself against identity theft by securing your personal information -- online and offline. Make sure to engage in best practices such as using strong passwords, protecting your devices with updated security software, monitoring your bank transactions, securing your personal documents, and minimizing the amount of information you share online. ​

For proactive protection, McAfee® can actively monitor your sensitive information and give step-by-step guidance when you need it the most.

Begin by analyzing the situation and reviewing the compromised information. Then, notify the relevant authorities, such as your bank, coverage agency, a local police station, or a national cybercrime complaint center. While the relevant authorities are helping you with the case, check and secure your financial accounts, devices, and proof of identity. ​

Select McAfee plans include identity theft coverage to cover up to $1,000,000 of qualifying losses, and hands-on restoration support to help you reclaim your identity. Identity theft coverage not available to McAfee Security for T-Mobile subscribers in the State of NY or Puerto Rico due to regulatory compliance.

The most common form of identity theft is financial identity theft, which refers to any type of theft when someone uses another individual’s information for financial gain. Some examples are New Account Fraud, Account Takeover Fraud, Business Identity Theft, and Tax-Related Identity Theft.

You must report identify theft to the FTC at https://www.identitytheft.gov/#/assistant or 1-877-438-4338. Prepare your personal identity documents such as ID cards or SSN to verify your name, utility bill/mortgage statement for address verification, along with bank or credit card statements to show where fraudulent transactions took place. The identify theft report proves to businesses that your identity has been stolen.

You can access and manage your identity protection on protection.mcafee.com. 

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.

What does a security freeze do?​
A security freeze stops companies from looking at your credit profile, which halts the application process for loans, credit cards, utilities, new bank accounts and more until the freeze is lifted.​

When should I freeze my credit?​​

A credit freeze protects unauthorized access to your credit report. By freezing your credit proactively, fraudsters can’t open new accounts in your name, even if they have your personal info. A credit freeze has no impact to your credit score. Just remember to unlock or unfreeze your credit information prior to any credit applications.

Credit and bank freezes should be lifted when:

  • Applying for a loan
  • Applying for a credit card
  • Purchasing an item with financing, like a large appliance, car, or house
  • Refinancing your mortgage

Utility freezes should be lifted when:

  • Changing your phone, TV or internet service provider
  • Moving to a different address

Just use the same provided links, sign into your account and follow the instructions to remove a freeze.​

Should I freeze my credit with all 3 major credit bureaus?​
Yes. Creditors may use different bureaus to access your info. Freezing one leaves the other two open to inquiries.​

Will a security freeze prevent identity theft?​
Not all identity theft can be prevented. Freezes can greatly mitigate financial damage by preventing unauthorized accounts from being opened in your name. ​​

Will a security freeze affect my credit score?​​​
No. A security freeze simply stops creditors from looking at your credit files. Your score will not be affected.​​

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.
