Introducing Webroot® Security for Chromebook

Chromebook devices are perfect for students, families or anyone looking for ease of use. And their built-in security features are better than none at all. But they still benefit from added protection. 

That's why we've introduced Webroot® Security for Chromebook™ devices to proactively and continuously protect from a variety of targeted threats, filling in existing security gaps.

Features include:

  • Enhanced Antivirus Protection  Always-on, automatic scans of your device and files for viruses and malware.
  • On-Demand Scans  Use the secure Webroot browser to run additional scans with the click of a button.
  • Identity Protection – Blocks malicious websites that try to steal personal info or harm devices.
  • Secure Web Browsing – Identifies and blocks unsafe websites while using the Webroot browser or Google Chrome™.
  • Web Threat Shield – Warns about high-risk websites and automatically blocks them from installing anything dangerous. Download this extension at the Chrome Web Store.
  • Designed for Chromebook – Extra security specifically designed to protect your Chromebook.
