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 function. 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 function tile and creating (or logging in to) a mcafee.com/activate function account.

If you purchased a LiveSafe retail card, you can redeem your purchase using following steps.
