McAfee Firewall on MacOS Big Sur

Hi

Is there a reason the McAfee Firewall still isn't working after months of 'working as fast as you can' to fix this issue?

It is unacceptable considering many people, including myself, are constantly under malware attack. What would happen if I was to be subjected to malware as a result of insufficient protection, which I am currently paying McAfee for?

I wont be using McAfee total protection, or any other McAfee product for that reason, once my subscription ends.

Re: McAfee Firewall on MacOS Big Sur

hello,

for what it is worth, mcafee is not the only AV product that has difficulty with the latest Mac Os Big Sur unfortunate.

have you considered to use the Mac Firewall in the meantime as described in this service article ;

McAfee KB - Firewall is not available in your McAfee security software on Big Sur (TS103081)

hope this helps and the fix will come soon

greetings

It's now over three months and I still have the "We are sorry, but Firewall is currently not available on macOS Big Sur" message!  Has anyone actually got this working yet?  Seriously, McAfee Total Protection, three months!

Re: McAfee Firewall on MacOS Big Sur

Almost in March 2021, and still no fix for the firewall under Big Sur ?

Could McAfee at least give some update about when they think it'll be arranged and what is the current situation ?

Thank you

Hi @cyberdude,

The engineering team is working round the clock for this concern. As of now, there is no ETA regarding the fix. We will update, once the fix is available.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Allwyn I

Re: McAfee Firewall on MacOS Big Sur

It is now going on five months since Big Sur was released.  Exactly what is the issue that has required five months of your team working "as fast as they can" with no resolution and no ETA?

Is there a commitment to support this product or not?
