I think the app is named LG-Mcafee.apk or something like this (got rid of it long time ago). Delete the apk and you're done. Obviously root required as well as file manager like Root Explorer.

removed easily on G2 without root
Removed administration rights of mcafee, then restarted phone, went to apps in settings Ang uninstall it.
No root needed.

Go to Settings > Security > Phone administrators and untick McAfee.
But I don't think this meathod will work to uninstall the app.

I then went to apps within settings, clicked on mcafee security and then clicked on manage storage. It then asked for a pin which i put in and low and behold afer about 3 minutes it now gives me the option to force stop and uninstall updates.

Hope this is helpful to others that do not wish to root their phones.

Thank you. What phone number /email address did you use, specifically, to contact McAfee? I have tried numerous, but can't get to the right place. Can you put a little more detail here?
