First off, please forgive my lack of experience with computers. Needless to say, I'm in way over my head.
I usually stick with a desktop with Windows, but we decided to invest in the MacBook Pro. I purchased McAfee Total Protection (came with 3 licenses) since the website indicated it was used for both pc and Mac. It came with AntiVirus Plus (which I have 2 licenses for). I am attempting to determine if McAfee is really protecting the MacBook. I cannot find any app, downloads or anything with McAfee listed under files, applications, documents, etc with the MacBook. However, when I log into McAfee/My Account, it does list the MacBook as being protected under Total Protection but not AntiVirus Plus.
A. How do I ensure that the MacBook is fully protected?
B. Is the McAfee software not compatible with the MacBook Pro/Maverick OS? If not, can anyone recommend software that is?
C. Unrelated to McAfee, but if someone could instruct me on how to disable the $%#@ popups on this stupid MacBook, I'd be eternally grateful and I might be able to refrain from throwing this infuriating contraption through the window . Rant done.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!
No they are not, only All Access or LiveSafe offer cross-device protection.
Check the product pages Virus Protection and Security for All Your Devices – PC, Mac, Smartphone and Tablet | McAfee
There is also "McAfee Internet Security for MAC" and "Family Protection".
Yosemite is, I believe, not yet fully covered except by the trial version available online..
As far as your other Mac problems go probably best to post on a specialist Mac forum.
You best speak to Technical Support regarding coverage as I was not aware Total Protection would cover a Mac, it certainly isn't supposed to....unless you are running Windows on the Mac.
See link below. It's a free phone call or you can use online chat. Customer Service can also clarify which packages work on what system or device and they are also a free phone call and listed below
