    I just noticed this. Do I need to activate it or is it a waste of battery and time?

    I bought mine unlocked from Samsung directly and never had this option on my carrier versions of the note.

    Why do you want to turn it off ? It is not running in the background only when you click scan.

    In order to protect it has to be active and running.

    McAfee is a lot more trustworthy than what they use to have to offer. But, no I don't think it is needed or wanted. If I did, I'd first turn to Malwarebytes and AdGuard Pro.

    The option isn't on my t-mobile. During setup I told not to do McAfee..Did you? If not wonder if it is the McAfee and you have to disable it?

    I have an unlocked phone bought from Samsung on Sprint and this has been there since the day I got the phone I believe August 21st. I would also like to know how to disable it because it scans on it's own. Clearing the data and cache doesn't work. Forcing it to stop only works until I restart the phone or run Device Care would like a permeant deactivation.
