SAT Sample Curriculum
I recall a while back Webroot had some sample curriculum or a training path for the SAT videos, but can’t for the life of me find that page now. It basically had a suggested order to watch the videos so people got a good overview of cybersecurity. Does anyone know where to find that? Thanks!
Webroot Endpoint Protection - unblock site for all users
Hi,We have a small network of ~50 users all on the same webroot account. I am doing some email safety training and one of the tasks included in Microsoft Defender is a phishing simulation. It sends an email to all users, simulating a typical phishing scam. It logs details of all users who click through and share their credentials on the fake site. When I ran a test to my user, it looks like webroot is blocking the site as suspicious. Our current configuration does not provide users with the option to override this. Is there a way to unblock this site so that I can continue my test?For reference, the site it’s directing me to is https://www.attemplate.com/.Thanks
I can't access my account or my app. No email support anymore?
My Key Code no longer works My username and password no longer work to log into my account on the web or when trying to open the app. In fact, the app no longer opens and requests my key code and then rejects it. I tried to make a new account and I get a error message that the page doesn’t exist. My mobile app works and correctly verifies that my account is paid through spring of 2024. There seems to be no way to send an email request for support to Webroot/Carbonite and the knowledge base is of no help. BTW, I paused my VPN through these steps to no avail. My app is Webroot SecureAnywhere - CompleteAnyone out there that can provide guidance? Thank you in advance,Shiah

Can my Browser Settings Block My Ability to Post in One Particular Forum?
There is a forum on the Web where I yearn to post. For six months, when I attempt it I receive the following: ________________, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system? If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation. I use Firefox, Edge, and Chrome browsers; all three receive the same error message. Eight months ago I was able to post in the forum. Others are posting. The site is up and running. I’m in contact with the site admin. Can it be Webroot?
How long does it take for Webroot to uninstall after sending the uninstall command?
I use webroot to centrally manage devices for out clients. Our policy is set to poll every 15 minutes. I’ve sent the command to the device that I want to uninstall it on, the command log shows delivered, but the program isn’t uninstalling. I’ve reset the device too and tried to refresh config on it but still webroot remains. How long does it take for the webroot client to act on the commands it receives? How can i force this to unistall?
Is DNS Protection supported on macOS?
Hi, I tried to enable DNS protection for a macOS device (v10.15.3 Catalina). I noticed there is only a Windows icon on “Install DNS Protection” settings. Does this mean DNS protection is not yet supported on macOS? I checked the docs but couldn’t find anything about this. Is there a way to manually install the DNS protection agent if it is not possible via the policy settings? Thanks for any help.
Webroot Interference with Microsoft Office documents
Greetings Webroot Community! I wanted to share a recent issue that we have been experiencing with some clients that use both Microsoft Office products, and Webroot Business Endpoint Protection. Recently, some of our users have reported that when they are trying to edit and save documents in Word and Excel they experience a pop up that advises them that they cannot save their changes because “another user” currently has the document open. We tried several different ways to get this error to go away, however each time we have had to uninstall and reinstall the Webroot agent on the client machines. Our working fix for the issue is to deactivate protection in our RMM portal, on the endpoint in the management console, and then uninstall the agent on the system locally through a windows command window using the following command: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Webroot\WRSA.exe” -uninstallWe then reactivate protection through our RMM portal, allow the agent to reinstall, and sign out and back into t
Webroot blocking Chrome cos it does not trust it.
For the past couple of weeks I have been getting alerts on my laptop from Webroot telling me that it’s blocking this or that app from linking to the Internet because it does not trust the apps.The silly part of this is that it is telling me that it does not trust apps such as Chrome or apps that come as part of the Win 10 package. Examples below.It takes three or four clicks on the “Always allow” button to get rid of the alert.The next day it comes back again.Okay, so it’s not a fatal problem, but is very irritating. And plainly there is something wrong.Does anyone know how to fix this? Alternatively, does anyone know how to get the attention of Support, who so far have not bothered to respond?
Save Webroot Reports to Specified Directory
Hello, Webroot Community.I run Webroot utilities every morning in order to keep things clean on my Windows 10 (Dell) desktop PC.I click on the Save Report button, which saves the report on my desktop. I’d like to configure Webroot to place the report file into a folder which I specify. Please offer suggestions. Thanks.
Initial Scan Never Completes
Installed Webroot Secure Anywhere on my MacBook Pro M1 running Ventura, and the initial scan has run for hours and never completes. It appears that it is scanning every file in my OneDrive, most of which are cloud-based.This makes Webroot useless for me, and I’m going to have to remove it and go with another alternative.Truly sad, as Webroot used to be a decent product.
Erroneous message stating Webroot subscription is expired
I have been using the WebRoot PC security software for six years and renewing on a yearly basis. I recently renewed for 1 year in January 2023. Suddenly in late February 2023, a message is displayed on the WebRoot console message window stating that the subscription is expired, even though the status window still shows that the subscription is “Active” and the pc is “Protected”. A second popup window also shows the subscription expired, renew now message. I contacted customer support and the agent, although friendly, was unable to solve the issue. He wanted to “remote in” to my computer, which I was extremely leery of. He finally told me to ignore the erroneous messages as long as the software was running ok. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get rid of the erroneous message?
Web Threat Shield Chrome Extension errors when emulating iOS devices
Repro for this error is very simple: open Chrome with Web Threat Shield extension installed, F12 to open dev tools, CTRL+SHIFT+M for emulator, choose any iOS device, reload page, extension file content_scripts/main.js:17 throws ‘Uncaught ReferenceError: browser is not defined’.A minor annoyance, but one I’d be very grateful for a fix for. Sorry if this is in the wrong sub-forum, I wasn’t sure which was most appropriate.
