Many Mcafee subscribers are satisfied with Mcafee’s service. Still, they don’t get delighted when it comes to the renewing process of the antivirus, as it sometimes gets tricky, and you might start facing a few issues.
If you had your computer protected with Mcafee antivirus and want to renew your subscription for the all-around protection from any threats and malware, then we have brought the answer to your “How to.” question.
There are two ways your Mcafee antivirus can be renewed. The first one uses an automatic update system that might be activated to renew your system on its own without any hassle of going through any lengthy process. In comparison, the second option can be used to manually update your software using the process that we will describe further in this article(without any technical or customer support.)
Automatic Update system
When you start getting warning messages from Mcafee with red boxes or alerts saying, “Your computer is at risk. Renew your subscription,” or “Protect what you value”, this might be the time for your o renew your subscription. However, sometimes these messages can be because of no internet connection, computer settings, or account settings.
To check your automatic update system, first of all, you need to visit Mcafee’s website home.mcafee.com,and then you have to log in with the email account that you have used to get your subscription for the software.
To log in to your account, click on the My Account button in the upper right corner of our screen.

Enter those details and click on Log in.

After this, you will see a new screen with a toggle switch named uninterrupted protection you can turn it on.
You can use a similar method to turn it off, after which you will see a new window with a few settings which you can review and change according to your convenience.
If you are not comfortable giving the control in the hands of the software company, or if you are facing some issue with the automatic update system, you can use this method to update your software manually by repeating the following steps.
