How Do I Cancel My Mcafee Subscription?

If you no longer need or want your McAfee subscription you may wish to cancel your McAfee subscription. Options include canceling your account and erasing all of your information. You could also turn off the auto-renewal for that subscription, which effectively amounts to canceling your subscription while still allowing you to have others.

McAfee is a company that sells computer security software products and subscriptions. If you have a McAfee subscription that you would like to cancel, read on to find out how.

McAfee's Subscription Refund Policy

If you have an annual subscription to one of the Consumer or Small Business Security services, you are eligible for a refund if you cancel the subscription and make a refund request within 30 days of the date you made the subscription. You can also get a refund for your annual subscription if you cancel your subscription and request a refund within 60 days of the subscription being renewed. If you have a monthly subscription to any service, you are not eligible for a refund.

Turning Off Auto-Renewal

If you no longer need your McAfee product subscription, the easiest thing to do is turn off auto-renewal. Doing so is effectively canceling your subscription. It stops new charges from being applied to your credit card. It also allows you to continue using the subscription until the end of your current subscription. To turn off auto-renewal for your subscription, just follow these instructions:

1. Go to McAfee's home page.

2. Click on My Account.

3. Sign into your account.

4. Click on the Log In button.

5. Hover over My Account to bring up the drop-down menu.

6. Click on Auto-Renewal Settings.

7. Locate the subscription you want to cancel. Click on the On/Off button beside it.

8. Click on the Turn It Off button to confirm your choice.

Canceling Your Account

If turning off the auto-renewal is not an option for you, you may want to fully cancel your account, remove your email and all of your account details. At this point, you need to contact McAfee's customer service and request a full cancellation. You cannot cancel your account by yourself. McAfee has chat, help desk, email and phone options for contacting customer service.
