I am really tired of Google trying to control my life and be the censor czars.  As a result, I downloaded the Brave browser.  Do all the Webroot products support the Brave browser especially Web Shield?

Hello @DunnGoneFishing 

 

Not officially! But you can try to install the Web Shield from the Chrome store: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/webroot-filtering-extensi/kjeghcllfecehndceplomkocgfbklffd

 

Let us know if it works!

 

Thanks,

Also you can manually add Brave browser to Webroot’s Identity Shield and put it under protect:

Thank you @TripleHelix.  I was able to install the extension without any errors.  Now I have to see if it actually works.  Hard to know since I don’t know any dangerous websites that will trigger the protection.

In addition, I added the brave.exe in the Application Protection tab as you suggested.  

I appreciate your help and suggestions.  Is there a way to lobby WebRoot to add full support of Brave?

Ok. Time to go fishing now.  The Red Drum are biting at Calaveras Lake outside of San Antonio.  Fish On!!

Hello @TripleHelix,

Your test worked like a charm!  I received the WebRoot Warning page.  Thank you for providing the link to the website test.  Much appreciated.
