How do I reset the McAfee® Secure Home Internet app?
If it is desired to use a different email address to manage the McAfee® Secure Home Internet (SHI) app, the current email address will need to be disassociated from the ARRIS Wi-Fi product.  This can be done by performing a factory reset from the McAfee® SHI app.  This document provides steps for disassociating an email address using the factory reset feature of the McAfee® SHI app.

NOTE: This process will reset all Parental Control and device management configurations.  Devices will need to be identified again and Parental Controls will need to be reconfigured after performing the factory reset.
