Some McAfee security features are going away soon!

Dear McAfee Customers,

We are writing to you because you’ve registered McAfee Mobile Security, an award-winning security solution for your Android smartphone and tablet.

Google has announced new policies for Android Apps that will affect some of McAfee’s features.

We want to let you know that some security features will no longer be available after February 21, 2019. Due to Google’s recent policies, McAfee has been asked to remove the following features within McAfee Mobile Security as of version 5.2 - which will be released in a few days.

Scan Messages - scans for malicious code from your text and multimedia messages. Track SIM Card - warns you if someone inserts a new SIM card into your lost or stolen device Buddy List - texts your trusted contact(s) if your device is stolen or if you forget your PIN Backup/Wipe/Restore Contacts, Call Logs, & Text Messages - gives you peace of mind in case your device is lost, stolen, or damaged. Call Blocker - filters calls from certain numbers Text Commands - you can no longer send SMS commands to your lost phone We hope to bring these features back to you in the future as we continue conversations with Google.
