If you forget your email address and/or password of your McAfee account, you may follow the simple steps below to regain access to your McAfee account in a matter of minutes. To regain access and successfully log back into your McAfee account, follow the steps below.

Verify your email address:

Please follow the steps below if your browser is submitting the wrong information (email address and password) to the server. This is a local issue on your system and it can only be fixed by clearing the local data from your browser.

Firstly, clear your browser cache and cookies. This will ensure that the old data in your browser is not reused to log in to your McAfee account. After you clear the cache and the browser cookies, there will be no further conflicts while logging in to your McAfee account.

  1. Open the browser and then visit mcafee.com.
  2. Since you have cleared your browser cookies, you will be automatically logged out of the McAfee portal.
  3. Hover the mouse cursor over My Account and click on Sign In.
  4. If your password manager is displaying the stored email address in the email address field, delete it and then retype your email address.
  5. Enter your password and click on Log In.
  6. Please note that passwords are case-sensitive. Also, ensure that CAPS LOCK is not switched on while typing the password.

If you are still not able to log in to your McAfee account, then you may be typing a wrong password. In this case, follow the next procedure to reset your McAfee account’s password.
