Hi Team,

We have some Machines which are encrypted with either MNE/MDE. we have few questions, could you please help us

1) If we Uninstall McAfee Agent on those Machines , will they decrypt automatically?

2) If we Uninstall McAfee Agent, will those Machines Locked by MNE/MDE and asking for recovery Key from ePo?

3) Is there any feature in  MNE/MDE to lock "the Stolen Laptop  or Not Submitted Laptop back to Office".

Hello @Vinay555 

Thanks for your post.

  • If MA is uninstalled, machine will still be encrypted
  • Yes it will
  • Nope, data will still be encrypted, nothing else can be done
