Without root, you can't. The best you can do is revoke it's administration rights in menu/settings/security

Use a file explorer like root explorer, navigate to system/apps (I'm not 100 sure this is the correct folder) and just simply delete the apk. Reboot if you want and you're done. Or use an app manager like titanium backup and find the app and delete it.

mcafee support
Im new to the forum but have been following for a while. I contacted mcafee support and received an email from them asking for my email associated with the account, my imei number, the phone number associated with the account and a buddy number of which i sent the info and received a pin number from them. 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.

Just freeze it in titanium along with 1000 other bloatwares that would get rid of all the lag and eat up half your battery. Seriously recommend you to root.

Root, then install an app called App Master, has the ability to remove system and user apps, I removed a tonne including hangouts, maps and all the others, macafee etc.

/system/priv-app
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.
