How do I remove a McAfee® SHI account from the SBG7580-AC gateway?
When the SBG7580-AC is associated with the McAfee® Secure Home Internet (SHI) app, an admin account is created.  If a new admin account is to be associated with the gateway, or the McAfee® SHI app is no longer used, the admin account will need to be removed from the gateway.  The Factory Reset feature in the SHI app will remove the admin account from the SHI app and gateway.  The factory reset with the reset button on the gateway will also remove the admin account and should be used as a last resort.  Performing a Factory Reset will erase any custom configuration changes that have been made.  Once the admin account is removed, a new account or the existing account can be associated with the gateway.  This document contains the following sections:
