Wattys,

Open McAfee and go to Firewall -> Settings

Under Firewall settings open the Internet connections and programs

Click on Add then browse the Samsung phone app and add it into the internet connection & programs and give full access

I've tried multiple times to utilize this feature in McAfee with NO luck. The very apps I've added are blocked! I'm using the Cox McAfee Suite from Cox on a Mac, if that makes a difference. VERY frustrating.
