I have purchased a Lenovo tablet in past month and set up and activated the Free McAfee protection which was installed by the manufacturer. I believed that I had added the Tablet to my main account with McAfee which I have paid for and is installed on two of my Windows PCs. I have since been advised that the Free installation on the tablet has or will expire today and have been asked to pay for protection, so I asked McAfee to send me a link which was received and I thought I had activated it on the Tablet, but now each time I try to log into my account from the Tablet I am informed that the password is incorrect. I have checked that I am using the correct email address and password for my account be logging on via my Windows PC. How can I remove all traces of the original McAfee and continue with the paid for version which I thought I had installed on the tablet via the link? The tablet seems to have removed the Icon for McAfee from the homepage and everywhere else. I hope this Forum is appropriate for my question!
It may be that if it was installed with the tablet you cannot uninstall it in the normal way Have you tried -Settings>Security>Device Administrators to see if it is listed there? If so can you uncheck it?
