Gmail notifications stopped when McAfee Security was installed

Jump to solution

I recently installed the McAfee Security app on both my Samsung Android tablet and Samsung Android smart phone. Almost immediately I stopped getting notifications on both devices when a new email arrived in my Gmail app. The emails appear in my inbox OK but my notifications stopped. I have checked my settings in Gmail on both devices and they appear OK. Is McAfee Security doing something strange with my emails or Gmail??

I finally cured the problem on both devices. I went to "Apps" in Android settings, selected Gmail, and cleared both "Data" and "Cache". Gmail notifications returned on both devices. I suspect that the McAfee installation process somehow corrupted the Gmail "Data".
