At McAfee, we continually review and adjust our product portfolio to best meet the needs of our customers. For this reason, we have made the strategic decision to remove the Media Vault feature in a future update of McAfee Mobile Security (MMS) for iOS.

IMPORTANT: Because the Media Vault feature is being removed, you must take the following actions, to avoid the risk of data loss when you update to the latest version of MMS:

  • Move your images, video, or other media from your Vault to your mobile device.

See TS103165 – Changes to McAfee Mobile Security (July – September 2021) for the dates that you need to take action by. The media in your Vault is at risk if you do not take action by the dates shown in the article.
Don’t worry, you can continue using McAfee Mobile Security even after the Media Vault feature is removed.

What happens if I do not move my data before the relevant date?
Any media stored in your Vaults that have not been moved to Apple Photos before the dates shown in TS103165 – Changes to McAfee Mobile Security (July – September 2021) will be lost when you update to the latest version of MMS. We urge you to move your media as soon as possible to avoid the possibility of data loss.

What are my options if I want to store my photos in a different hidden vault?
Use the iOS Hidden Album feature provided by Apple. To learn more about this feature, see Hide photos on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

NOTE: Content stored inside the Hidden Album is not encrypted in the same way as with the Media Vault. But, it is still a safe option to hide photos and video.
