How to recover or reset your McAfee account password?

by James watson James

No one can deny from the fact that the number of viruses as well as cyber threats is growing day by day. These viruses attack your device by entering through an email attachment, a website you browse, or the software or the application you download from the web. Even some of the viruses keep a hidden eye when you access your banking information online. The viruses or the scams steal this information and can also make transactions from your account to theirs.

In short, a single security lack may lead to loss of millions. To meet this growing requirement of online security, McAfee has come to the rescue. McAfee antivirus range provides advanced protection against all sorts of viruses. It also covers you up from the most recent fraud or virus, Ransomware. You can buy the one as per the requirement of our home or business PC.

Once purchased, you have to download, install and then activate your McAfee subscription by creating your account at The purpose of creating a McAfee account doesn’t ends here! You can also manage your subscriptions, view your subscription date, view the days left for subscription and do a lot more stuff. While creating a McAfee account, make sure the password you set is highly secure. It should be a combination of letters, numbers and special character.
