What's included

McAfee True Key can be installed on up to 10 of your devices including Windows, Mac, and mobile (iOS and Android). Here's an overview of the included features:


Quick and Simple Access

  • From the moment you open your browser, the True Key browser extension helps you access your accounts easily.
  • Stores and automatically fills in your password details.
  • Enjoy convenient access to your apps, websites and devices.

Secure Your Identity

  • The True Key app protects your passwords by scrambling them with AES-256, one of the strongest encryption algorithms available. Only you can access your information with the factors you choose.
  • The True Key app gives you the freedom to add multiple layers of protection to access your True Key profile.

2nd Device authentication

  • Use a mobile device to verify it’s you.
  • Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is standard with the True Key app. You'll always be verified by at least two factors before being signed in.
  • Customize your profile by adding more factors—the more you add, the safer your profile becomes.

Trusted Device

  • True Key recognizes which devices are yours
  • Sign-in is simple; Just type in your master password on the device you trust. When not on a Trusted Device (a friend's phone, hotel computer), you'll be verified by a second authentication factor for safety.

Your One Master Password

  • McAfee respects your privacy. Your passwords belong only to you—accessible only by you. McAfee will never share or sell your data.
