If someone is trying to factory reset the device, it will ask for the pin number which you have created. And if the sim card is changed the buddy list person will be receving the alert message & also to the registered email address with McAfee. 

But once the factory reset has been done, all the installed applications will get wiped out from the device including McAfee.
