With the transition of the McAfee SECURE certification to TrustedSite Certification, most trustmarks and links will be automatically updated. However, some legacy trustmarks will need to be updated to ensure they will continue to work.

For customers using the Main Code

If your trustmarks use the Main Code, which has been the default since 2013, no changes are necessary, unless you’d like to update your implementation.

  • Existing floating McAfee SECURE trustmarks will automatically update to the TrustedSite floating trustmark.

  • The onsite modal will automatically update.

  • Inline engagement trustmarks that look like the following will automatically be updated to the TrustedSite Certified Secure engagement trustmark.

    <div class="mfes-trustmark" data-type="102" data-width="90" data-height="37"></div>
  • Legacy Shopper Identity Protection trustmark with the McAfee SECURE brand will automatically update.

  • Inline engagement trustmarks that look like the following will automatically be updated to the TrustedSite Certified Secure engagement trustmark as well.

    <script src="https://cdn.ywxi.net/js/inline.js?w=90"></script>

For customers using legacy HTML trustmarks or non-official trustmarks

If you’re using legacy HTML trustmarks referencing the following domains, you’ll need to update your code.

  • mcafeesecure.com

  • scanalert.com

  • hackersafe.com

If you are using non-official trustmarks hosted by you and not from the domains above or from the following domains, you’ll also need to update your code.

Here are some examples that will need to be updated:

<!-- McAfee SECURE Engagement Trustmark for example.com --><a target="_blank" href="https://www.mcafeesecure.com/verify?host=example.com"><img class="mfes-trustmark" border="0" src="//cdn.ywxi.net/meter/example.com/102.svg" width="120" height="50" title="McAfee SECURE sites help keep you safe from identity theft, credit card fraud, spyware, spam, viruses and online scams." alt="McAfee SECURE sites help keep you safe from identity theft, credit card fraud, spyware, spam, viruses and online scams." oncontextmenu="window.open('https://www.mcafeesecure.com/verify?host=example.com');return false;"></a><!-- End McAfee SECURE Engagement Trustmark for example.com -->
