McAfee Total Protection on macOS Big Sur

Jump to solution

Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me, please? I've just upgraded my MacBook Pro to macOS Big Sur but now my McAfee Total Protection seems to be having problems. I keep getting a pop-up from McAfee saying "Allow us to continue your setup. Click Allow in the Security & Privacy window to let us load your software". However, despite it bringing up the Security & Privacy options for macOS Big Sur, there doesn't seem to be any options or tick-boxes for McAfee anywhere. I've been through all the options and even uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version of McAfee Total Protection. However, it's still doing the same thing.

Obviously, I need this urgently sorted as I don't want my MacBook being vulnerable to attacks or anything.
