How to download and install McAfee All Access on your tablet


Environment

Affected Products:
McAfee All Access

Affected Devices:
Android Tablets
 

Summary

Use the instructions in this article to download and install McAfee All Access on your Android tablet. For help with installing McAfee All Access on additional devices, see the Related Information section.

IMPORTANT:

  • If you already have a standalone (non-McAfee All Access) copy of Mobile Security on your device, contact McAfee Support for assistance.
     
  • If you previously installed McAfee All Access, but were not automatically upgraded, remove the software from the device and reinstall it. Any prior backed-up data is safe, and you can transfer it to your new account later. If you have previously used another version of Mobile Security on the same device, all data backed up to that account will be automatically moved to your new account.
     
  • If you have used Mobile Security before, but have changed both your device and phone number recently, you might not automatically see your data from your other account. Contact McAfee Support to guide you through the account migration process.
