Does McAfee Total Protection needs to be updated for each user separately?

Jump to solution

Hello, I am using McAfee Total Protection, on one of my Windows 10 computers I have administrator account and few non-admin user accounts. I have noticed that when I log into as "user A" and update McAfee to newest version and then sign out and log on as "user B" I do have to update McAfee again for that user. I do wonder is this normal behavior. If yes, if I would log in as "administrator" and update McAfee, it would get updated for all users or just for "administrator"?

Hope you are refering the to the Engine version for validating if McAfee is updated.  The McAfee update is not user centric. Once updated by any of the user on the PC the same should get reflected on all user accounts.

If that isn't the case, run the McAfee Virtual Technician (MVT).
