I have multiple machines running McAfee and its gettin got the point where I will not be renewing my subscription again.
I get nothing but reminders that my subscription is about to expire, i will be unprotected. Its true my protection will expire, IN AUGUST!
can't turn it off, can't ignore it, got an email this morning again telling me that I need to renew! its annoying and pointless, warn me a month or a fortnight before but not 5 MONTHS! Sorry but its worse that having malware popping up!
I'll be changinf protection providers if it carries on like this, and other pop ups are as bad, "you haven't selected auto renew" " you need to use our VPN for protection" how about letting me decide? for a professional set up this is really really poor.
Greetings from McAfee.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. I have sent a private message to you, kindly revert with the required details to help you.
And then they respond to you with a ridiculous bot asking for the info you already supplied - ridiculous amount of annoying, no-value-added pop-ups!
McAfee (Intel) don't give $^!+ about what you think of their useless brag-ware, market-ware, attention-ware that does NOTHING TO IMPROVE YOUR SAFETY, THE EFFECTIVENESS OR THE EFFICIENCY OF THEIR SOFTWARE!
Since Intel took over the product:
McAfee updates the software now, not to improve the efficiency or effectiveness of the software nor increased user control and visibility into detected threats, but to propogandize you into thinking how wonderful they are so they can reach deeper into your wallet.
It is clear at this point the only solution is to transition to a different security suite vendor.
I have also been receiving numerous emails telling me to renew my subscription which ended on Oct 23, and I can find no way to stop them. I bought a new McAfee subscription from HP and activated it on Oct 23 and it shows in the McAfee icon/app. I unsubscribed from the McAfee emails today, but now I'm afraid I won't receive pertinent emails from McAfee for my current subscription.
The emails are from what appears to be a legitimate email address, but I am not permitted to place it here.
Can you help? Thanks.
