Known best for its antivirus software, McAfee also offers other security products, including identity theft protection and VPN services. As one of the oldest companies of its type, McAfee has a lot of customers and receives a high volume of calls to its customer service department. As you might expect, the company gets a lot of requests for customer service.

Why Do People Call McAfee Customer Support?

  • Purchasing or upgrading products
  • Questions about product installation
  • Technical support and troubleshooting
  • Login and password issues
  • Billing issues

Best Practices for Calling McAfee Customer Service

There are several things that you can do to help ensure that your call to McAfee customer service will be resolved quickly and professionally:

  • Before calling, make sure you have the correct number. McAfee has multiple customer service numbers for different divisions. Calling the right number can expedite your call.
  • Be prepared to assist the McAfee customer service representative who takes your call by having relevant documentation in front of you. Documentation may include order numbers, credit card statements, serial numbers or correspondence between you and McAfee regarding your current issue.
  • If you are calling for technical support, have your computer or device nearby so that you can troubleshoot along with your agent.
  • Have pen and paper handy. You'll need them to take notes during your conversation.

How do Consumers Feel About Calling McAfee Customer Service?

A review of online review and news media sites does not show any pattern of dissatisfaction with McAfee customer service. Those who use McAfee products appear to be reasonably satisfied with the support they received.

What Kind of Issues can a McAfee Customer Service Representative Resolve?

McAfee can resolve most customer issues over the phone, including subscription and billing issues, ordering concerns, installation problems, technical support and troubleshooting.

What Can't Be Resolved With a Call to McAfee Customer Service?

If your McAfee products are incompatible with your existing hardware or software, your customer support agent might be able to suggest workarounds or strategies for getting everything to work. But if this isn't possible, you'll have to make some decisions about how to proceed on your own. McAfee isn't responsible for remedying incompatibilities between its products and those of third-party companies.

If you purchase your McAfee products through third-party retailers, you may find that McAfee has limited resources when it comes to navigating conflicts between yourself and the retailer. It may be best to work out retailer issues on your own.

What Should You Do If You Have an Unsuccessful Call with McAfee?

If you end a call with McAfee support and are disappointed with the service you received, don't give up. You may still have options for getting an appropriate resolution.

Take some time to review the notes you took while talking to McAfee's customer support agents. This might refresh your memory so that you can identify areas of misunderstanding or miscommunications during your original call.

Call McAfee back. The next representative you talk to might be in a better position to understand your concern and provide an appropriate response.

If a second call doesn't resolve the problem to your satisfaction, try another way of getting in touch. Options include live chat, opening a support request online or visiting McAfee's customer forum, where you can connect with experienced users of McAfee products and hopefully receive some direction about your issue. If you did buy a McAfee product through a third party vendor, you may be able to ask that vendor to intervene on your behalf.
