Follow these steps to redeem a mcafee.com/activate software product card that you purchased in a store.
After you redeem the card, you can download and install your mcafee.com/activate software and activate your subscription.
Install or re-install on a PC or Mac
The first time you start your new computer you are prompted to register your pre-installed LiveSafe product. During registration, you will be asked if you agree to share information with mcafee.com/activate. If you select this option, your LiveSafe product is automatically set up for you as part of your computer's normal setup process. If you do not select this option, you can still activate your LiveSafe product later by selecting the mcafee.com/activate tile and creating (or logging in to) a mcafee.com/activate account.
If you purchased a LiveSafe retail card, you can redeem your purchase using following steps.
IMPORTANT: If you are using a Mac, before you begin, open your Downloads folder and verify that it does not contain an older version of the mcafee.com/activate installer .dmg file. If you find one, rename the file. Having an older copy in your Downloads folder could cause your Mac to mount the wrong installer and prevent your product from successfully activating. See the Related Information section of this article for more details.
Install on a mobile device
You can also download LiveSafe apps from various device-specific app stores:
Before installing from an app store, ensure you have created an account at http://home.mcafee.com/activate and have logged in at least once. Also, ensure you use the same email address and password from your install or retail card redemption for each device.
If you have a problem while redeeming your card and activating your subscription, click the message that you see and follow the steps:
Network protection monitors who's on your Wi-Fi and protects your devices behind a firewall.
