I noticed that even the 2013 version of the Webroot software still rely on the Windows firewall for incoming connections monitoring and only check outgoing connections. I was reading the review on PCMAG and apparently, Webroot is planning a full two-way firewall. I hope this firewall is complete, in the sense that it also detects web exploits?
i think better make a general link for download file from webroot domain :
example : www.webroot.com/mobiledownload for manual download file .
Or : webroot.com/mobile/android and www.webroot/mobile/iOS
And always upload latest file version .

I want to see Windows Washer come back! I still use the program, and I want to see its development continued. Windows Washer would make WSA a more complete security suite. Many security suties have already intergrated their own version of privacy or tracks cleaning softare into their suties. Webroot was a true piooner in this area, and was one of the first to offer this type of software. Spysweeper's database has already been integrated into WSA. Why not do the same with Windows Washer or offer it as a stand alone product or both. Please bring Windows Washer back!
After uninstalling WSA the browser opens to load a page asking for user comment on if Webroot has let the user down.
It'd be great if instead of opening the browser, a small dialogue box opens with same function and after posting comment the user closes the box and it says 'thank you for your comment'.
WSA could have an AdBlocking feature integrated into the interface. Much like Avast! adblocker. Only better. It'd not only block ads in browsers but also in other apps. The devs team could gradually add apps to the list. Avast! licensed adlblocker from AdBlock Plus. Webroot if integrates its version of Adblocker into its range of products, it would take one more step towards wrapping up a range of products complete with features, perhaps more than any other security product at the same price.
It would be great if the user could change the theme/background of WSA to his wish. The orinigality of WSA would not be lost. A given set of themes based on green color could be included with WSA interface. The user simply chooses a theme from the set. Gradually Community members here could come up with newer themes each day and the Webroot members would consider and add them to the set of themes. This way the user will get refreshed from the new themes. The taskbar and desktop icons would also change accordingly by the chosen theme.
It would be nice if this feature available in the next version of Webroot SecureAnywhere.

Just want to say THANKS to Webroot, it's awesome!
People should not be able to circumvent the local webroot password, just by booting up in safemode and clicking remove password protected settings.
Kinda makes the password redundant.
Your PC product has a password protection option for settings.
Your android product does not.
Android phones are pretty easy to get into due to the grease from fingers can be seen on the display and the code/pattern quickly guessed.
After installing official updates to MAC OS, Webroot displays a 'Suspicious Activity' message containing two buttons labeled IGNORE and OK.
I think the choice of wording on these two buttons is ambiguous making it difficult to decide which to select.
I suggest re-wording the buttons and also providing a pop-up with more information so as to enable the end-user to make a more informed decision.

Thanks to @DavidP for this thread
It could be nice for me to can stop my remote PC with a remote command. Actually if you send a stop command, the PC will stop only when there's a new event.
Some tabs (e.g., Identity & Privacy ---> View/Edit Protected Applications) have lines exceeding the visible screen size. Please provide a "maximize" window option. Currently there is only a minimize option.
In Today's day and age where technology and companies rise and fall almost as fast as a reboot: It would be nice for Webroot to have an easy to access -flashy, alliance page that the community can reference street name programs and systems that are Webroot friendly. Especially with WiFi and portable systems being the desired norm. Educating the community with an easy to get to reference will allow non-techie users know what products are webroot ready. I say flashy, because I want it that easy to find for people who do not visit the webroot site on a regular basis. They need to find it "at a Glance". A list of application and or name look up can also be an alert posting under the given product. What do you think?
It'd be great if the 'delete comment' in 'Options' of a post is placed at the bottom of the menu. I would want to look for other other items and not deletion of the comment first thing when clicking on 'Options'. And mistakenly clicking on delete comment would be a hassle. I know there is a confirmation page before deletion but it would be a hassle.
