MMS Access to Photos in Media Vault


I re-installed MMS today, have Touch ID again but in setup I am not given the chance to Access Photos. That question should be on the bottom of Media Vault during setup. I have included the screenshot I get when I try to access photos in app. This cannot be done in SETTINGS. Meanwhile it is a good app for system and wifi threats. Also for your last location. Is it really necessary to keep your contacts and photos in a locked vault when you have an iPhone 7 and ICloud backups do this already? Probably, this entire app is better for androids. I'm happy with the system scanning and location. Unless someone comes up with an update at Mcafee for this app, nothing will change. I wish it worked as smooth as SAFE CONNECT.

After installing McAfee on the iPhone, you can select Media Vault and create a PIN. This will also allow McAfee to access Photos and Videos at the same time.

If there is an issue in accessing Photos and Videos from McAfee, please make sure McAfee is enabled under Settings. Follow the below steps to enable,

1. Go to Settings on our iPhone
2. Select Photos
3. Under Allow access to Photos, make sure McAfee is enabled
