Hi All,Curious if Webroot VPN is going away now that SaferVPN is being decommissioned as of Dec 15th, 2023. If readers didn’t know, Webroot VPN is technically NOT an in house product, but rather a reskinned/rebranded version of SaferVPN, but added some of their BrightCloud tech to it. I received a notice today that SaferVPN is recommending IPVanish and the website is saying they’ve joined with IPVanish. So does this mean, the Webroot VPN will be changing their product to update it’s look and feel of IPVanish? CuriousRegardsJohn H
Hello,I’ve got a question. I started my PC and this message poped up. Is it something I should worry about? I tried to remove a potential threat but it was impossible. It got stuck. I restarted my PC, scanned again and there was no such message anymore. I checked the console and it was fine. Could someone explain it? Is it false or sth?Thank you in advance

With the deprecation of the endpoint management console, we have lost a critical tool to help support our clients. Please add the client’s (WAN) IP address to the entities listing or to the summary section above or below the Internal IP as a suitable workaround.Using the Universal Reporter is too slow and cumbersome to obtain this information.

When Webroot was checking my computer, I received a call from someone who identified with Webroot and said my computer was corrupted and I needed to add a firewall which I agreed. Now that I have received a bill for $799.99 from Crown Technologies from Richardson, Texas, I beginning to think that I have been scammed. Has anyone else had this experience?
Good day,I’m curious if anybody can shed any insight on the deprecation of the old Endpoint Protection Console and what we are to expect in terms of changes as of November 28th? I have reviewed training videos and understand where to perform most functions using the new console and entities.Please understand that we have hundreds of a sites listed in our consoles and I have reviewed the videos.Currently if I wish to go to the console and perform work on a site, I can go to the Sites list and I can search and find the site wether that is ABC company or XYZ, then I can click the little pop out or go to Endpoint Protection and click the “Go to Endpoint Protection Console” and I can access the old console.So what happens when the existing console is deprecated? will this button go away? Will there be a new button that will jump us to the specific site in Entities?There are also some logs areas that I’m suspect will no longer be available.Currently I can see which users accessed a site in
i am f*g furious with your site and all your dysfunctional processes. And i am HERE because your bloody site makes it impossible to 1. login, or 2. authenticate, or, 3. even open a Support Ticket!!!! The initial problem is that my old email of some 20 years use is now defunct as of 18/09 (sad story) THAT WOULD NOT BE A PROBLEM IF YOU DESIGNED YOUR SYSTEM WITH SOME OTHER AUTHENTICATION OPTIONS THAN - ONLY - AN EMAIL ADDRESS THAT DOES.NOT.WORK!!!Does it ever OCCUR to you that most people change their email addresses precisely because their OLD EMAIL ADDRESS DOES.NOT.WORK??????Otherwise people are VERY reluctant to EVER change their email address, because then, like me, they would have to workout and to try and update their email contact details on any unknown number of contacts. in my case, HUNDREDS !!!!!And so many completely stupid sites like yours make it very difficult and time-consuming, or in YOUR case, impossible!!Because of such stupidity and arrogance that is now, completely unn

In My Account on line, Security tab, it shows the devices protected under a given Keycode. For each, it shows the actual Device Name of that device. There is a pencil icon, which allows me to change that to a more convenient name (it shows the actual name, in smaller letters, below that). However, it then changes the name back to the default (i.e.: actual name of device). How do I prevent it from changing the name back?
