McAfee's harassing nature with daily SPAM "notifications" on every machine I own is far worse than the risk of having to re-install a machine because it got infected with malware. I'm at the point where McAfee has become malware. Every frigging morning I have to whisk away annoying notifications for services, features, or just itself patting itself on the back for being present on my machine and these notifications can't be ignored. So far my only solution is to remove McAfee because it has become the worst malware I have had on one of my machines in over a decade. Surely there is a way to stop the daily harassment?
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience caused.
Please provide a screenshot of the pop up which appears on the screen, so that we can take this forward.
Any single SPAM notification won't tell the story. I will screenshot and collect them over the next month so you can see how offensive it is. My anti malware has become the greatest source of harassment than any other software, inbox or website I visit. In about a month you'll see what I'm talking about.
I collected screenshots of the notifications from McAfee since the last time I posted here. I missed a bunch too so this isn't all of it. Although there are numerous duplicates, each screenshot is a unique instance from your software. These messages serve no functional purpose to protect my machine and could easily be addressed by a subscription to daily Tips & Tricks emails like most companies provide.
A couple of these could be fixed by choices in Informational alerts in general settings and alerts but the secure search one only comes if you choose to not allow secure search and the program has an update I think. i see it rarely and never see the Chat scams ones. See what the mods say but yes you are seeing a deluge of popups.
Can you make any suggestions it seems to be a heap of popups that would annoy most users.
Thanks for validating how frustrating this is. It just doesn't stop bothering me. I really only want it to bother me when I have a critical decision to make, or it stopped malware for me. It otherwise should be extremely silent.
I just got another "protect your devices today" popup. How many times do I have to see that? I have already protected all of my devices!! And to be clear, I am not a new user. I have just tolerated this extreme nagware for the past three years straight.
I just got the "Protect all of your family's devices with McAfee" again! Like seriously... why can't I shut off this nagware? I already paid for McAfee and I already have it on all of my devices that I want it on!!
