    Manage Device Security

    Telstra Device Security is a month-to-month subscription. You’ll be charged the full month subscription on the same day each month. This date may not necessarily align with your Telstra billing date, as it’s the date you purchased the Telstra Device Security subscription. If you cancel your Telstra Device Security before the end of your subscription month you will not be entitled to any refund of service for that month. You can continue using McAfee Multi Access until the next billing date.

    No, only Telstra Device Security will be included on your Telstra bill.

    You’ll need to cancel your existing Telstra Device Security subscription first, to be eligible to redeem it against another eligible Telstra post-paid mobile or home internet service. You’ll need to complete sign-up with McAfee again but can use your existing McAfee account details.

    Cancel my service or subscription

    If you cancel your Telstra service, then all your subscriptions under this service, including Telstra Device Security will be automatically cancelledYou’ll only be protected until the end of your offer period or until your next billing date.

    Your subscription is paid month-to-month so you can cancel anytime through My Offers. Go to View Details to see your subscription information and select Cancel Payment to cancel your subscription.

    We suggest cancelling at least 1 day before your monthly subscription renews so you’re not charged for another month.

    You’ll still have access to McAfee Multi Access until your next billing date, or if you cancelled within an offer period, you’ll have access until the end of your offer period. Remember to remove McAfee’s software and any saved data from devices.


    Many streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon prevent you from accessing content through a VPN. If you can’t access a website or app when using McAfee’s VPN:

    1. Turn off the VPN feature in the software you downloaded on your device
    2. Try the website or app again
    3. If you still have a problem even after turning off McAfee VPN, check to confirm there’s no other VPN service running on your device
    4. Visit McAfee support for further troubleshooting if the problem isn’t resolved.
