Customer Service Email
Customer service for McAfee products and services is available by email. There is an average wait time of 48 hours for a response, but it could take much longer than that to resolve a problem. If you are requesting a refund you cannot use the email contact form, according to McAfee. You can access the email form http://service.mcafee.com/CustomerService.aspx?lc=1033&sg=CS&pt=1 on the Customer Service tab of the service website. There is also a chat option for immediate assistance with customer service issues and refunds.
With a total average time of 30 minutes for one customer service call we had no idea what to expect when we called McAfee customer service. The call was answered by a message telling customers how to resolve a known issue with McAfee. You cannot press 0 to skip the automated list of options. If you press 0 the options will simply repeat. When we talked to a McAfee representative we asked about cancelling a McAfee subscription. The agent offered to take our information to process the cancellation and any refund we would receive.
