Hi svs95
 
No worries...you sound as if you have things covered. As I said it is unlikely that you will run into a problem with the beta...but better safe than sorry.

Hi everyone, 
 
I wanted to provide an update as we're making our way through all of the Beta requests. If you haven't gotten your invite or keycode yet, don't worry! We'll be making our way to your account very soon. 
 
Thank you everyone! 
I just received this invitation and would like to join the Webroot SecureAnywhere Windows group.  May I have permision?  Thank you for this exciting opportunity.  Love the Webroot services!
 
Yes, I would like to join the Webroot BETA team, That is how I started with WEBROOT about 16 years ago, "we" have come a long way since then!  I use the Windows version and also on our Mobile devices.
I have tried to join as a beta tester but I get a message that says closed group.
Is there anything that I can do?

We can't thank everyone enough. We've seen a massive response to join our Beta program! The team and I have gone through this thread and will be sending out invites to those that responded that they wanted to join the program. You should see an invite coming your way by the end of the day. 
 
Thanks!

Hi jtolasch
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
If you are intent on joining the Beta Testing group, and therefore beta=ta testing new releases of WRSA then all you need to do is to wait for one of the Moderators to see your post (this will most likely now not occur until business hours on Monday at the earliest) and they will contact you about the next stage.
 
 
However in terms of your questions:
 
1. "if I'm suppose to pay for this service"?
 
    No, you do not pay for use of the beta release as effectively you testing is quid pro quo helping Webroot
    out.
 
2. "I dont know that much about computers and how to get it to work the best for me.."
 
    If I may I am concerned by this as beta testing is really something for the more tech savvy, experienced
    user to get involved in. And most certainly it is STRONGLY ADVISED that you do NOT install/run any
    beta software on a production system or one that you are not prepared to 'lose' should there
    unfortunately be a major issue with the beta, i.e., you are prepared to at worst lose the system &
    data/have to reinstall your OS, etc.
 
    Now, to be fair it is very rare that a WRSA beta causes any major damage but you need to think worst
    case and if you are prepared to accept the possibility. Also, even if you do decide to undertake the beta
    testing it is HIGHLY recommended that you use either a test or redundant system, that you have
    backed up/imaged prior to installing the beta...that way if the worst happens it is a relatively easy task to
    restore the system to the state prior to the issue.
 
    You could also test on a VM (Virtual Machine) if you have one set up...but given what you say about
    your expertise in the area I would expect that you do not have one of those.
 
I am not trying to warn you off but rather to make sure that you understand what is expected of a beta tester and therefore what precautions you need to take to be able to do the job safely & efficiently.
 
Please let me know if you have any questions or need any clarification on the above or anything else related to it.
 
Regards, Baldrick

Do we beta testers have separate forum for reporting bugs?

And for that very reason, you should not be volunteering to be a beta tester. The possible bad outcomes far outweigh any perceived benefits. Better to leave this to advanced, tech savvy users.
