Re: Is this email genuine

The last part of the email address is legit ie idtheftprotection.mcafee.com I would suggest 3 things

1. check your notifications  or rather the security report on your Livesafe (assuming this is your program) and see if the noticication is there.

2. Without clicking on the link see where it is going.

3. If then still in doubt call support they will be able to help you immediately.

https://service.mcafee.com and follow the options to call support
