In the past few days I have started to get notifications from McAfee about stories from "Hackable". How do I disable / opt out of these notifications?
Try what a mod posted a while back
While looking it seems like permission issue, please follow the below steps to enable McAfee in your device.
Settings> Accessibility> McAfee> Enable
Settings> Security> Device administrator
if those two already enabled, please check whether Wifi security, web protection is enabled if not please enable.
Open McAfee mobile security> hamburger (at top right corner)>safe web & wifi> enable both"
Peacekeeper, this is different from what that mod posted about. Note all relevant permissions are enabled and I am not getting notifications to enable something. I am getting "fluff" messages; the last one being something about listening to Hackable podcasts while commuting. These notifications / news stories come from McAfee, and I want to opt out of them.
"[J]ust a newsletter" is a euphamism for spam. Something we haven't asked for. Something we don't want, something we want to stop.
Your instructions regarding removing and reinstalling McAfee don't work. I just had another of these pop up.
I'm in the UK, so this falls under EU GDPR regulations: it's McAfee's duty to provide a means to stop this spam.
@sivasubramanian, your method does not work. Further, this should not be something we uninstall and reinstall. There should be an option to opt in / out to this news letter.
I fully agree. We should not be getting pop ups we cannot control, from an antivirus program we are paying for. I live in New Zealand so it must be world wide. It is Spam !
