Differences between LiveSafe and AllAccess

Hello,

what are the differences between these products?!

And how is the doing, if you would like to change from AllAccess to LiveSafe... Is there a new installation required?!

Thx a lot

Re: Differences between LiveSafe and AllAccess

All Access has been replaced by Total Protection as the larger cross-device software package.

LiveSafe is the other one, and looking at the product pages it isn't clear what the differences are.

I'm going to bring that up on our Conference Call with McAfee later today.

There really need to be a better comparison page.

Re: Differences between LiveSafe and AllAccess

In regards to performing a Uninstall/Reinstall it is advisable to first remove from your (Control Panel) Programs/Features/Restart. Then utilize the Latest (MCPR) to remove any possible remnants. So (Yes) if you were to decide to change Suites, or simply do a Clean Reinstall follow the above instructions.

All the Best,

Re: Differences between LiveSafe and AllAccess

I've gone through the two product pages and come up with one small difference in the first item on the list:

LiveSafe:  Use the cloud to store and access photos and important documents (Cloud Storage) - See more at: https://www.mcafee.com/consumer/en-us/store/m0/catalog/mls_430/mcafee-livesafe-trial.html#sthash.jV4...

Total Protection:  Protect your most private files with encryption software  (File Lock) - See more at: https://www.mcafee.com/consumer/en-us/store/m0/catalog.html#sthash.uK5Bpmh9.dpuf

So the difference here is storage in the Cloud for LiveSafe and onboard your machine for Total Protection.   Personally I prefer the latter.

Support will be glad to help you, it's free by phone.

Re: Differences between LiveSafe and AllAccess

On the call now and the general consensus is that the product pages are currently a little confusing, but products are changing, so basically the difference seems to be the type of remote storage, Cloud vs. local drive.

Re: Differences between LiveSafe and AllAccess

Okay... So I think I will choose McAfee AllAcess agin

Because of its cheaper price
