Webroot Scream Command

Status: New
by New Voice soldierone4u on ‎03-24-2014 02:32 PM
I recently downloaded the Webroot secure anywhere app, to test it I sent the scream command to my device and yes it did what it was designed to do, however simply by hitting the unlock tab is stopped screaming. In the event my phone was stolen I would like for it to continue to scream untiuntil I enter my passscode. Webroot is this posible?<br>

Have the ability to turn on or off components of the webroot program from your account things like the offline shield.

If you’re on computer 1 and computer 2 shield or shields are turned off you can turn them on

Having the ability to delete qurantined items form the End Protection Console would save a lot of time and make monitoring of all clients much clearer.

In Endpoint Reports, if you have a large Group you run a report on e.g. 'undetermined software' it should display how many pages have been returned e.g. page 1 of 10. Currently you have no idea how many records have been returned.


Secondly to that, there should be a 'go to page #' option so you can jump through the pages more quickly.


Also a very important thing to fix is when you sort by a field, e.g. Hostname, it's only sorts the result page you are on and not the whole recordset the query has returned. You'd find that results that should be displayed on page 1 are displaying on other pages.


these little features/fixes will make it much easier

idea for power users: SSD Optimizer

Status: New
by Frequent Voice on ‎11-26-2013 08:15 PM

I love the system optimizer when I'm running my dualboot windows 8 pro on the Hard Drive but I thought of an idea for a new feature that would be awesome for end users who may not know this, but what about an optimizer built to optimize and Solid State Drive? Because everyone by now has herd how much faster they are and yea they are faster but they also have a much shorter life. Everytime you erase something and re-write you just removed permanent space on your drive. sure not alot at a time but your system is constantly doing so.


So i was wondering if there is a way for Webroot to build a SSD Optimizer that will check to see how much ram they have and make the paging file accordingly, because i know not everyone has 16gb or more of ram so not everyone can just remove it completely and let the ram take over, but that is much needed space on a small SSD and also an amazing life increase for the drive. also, if it recognizes another drive, allow it to put the recovery partition onto the second drive to get even more space out of it. I would love this to become an option, and also get rid of prefetch and superfetch so its not constantly writing and re-writing, temp internet files do enough of that already, i don't need my ssd to get burned out in a year (figure of speech as i already have done everything listed). Please think of this as an idea, it would be simple to integrate as a script for that is simple and could setup someones SSD in about 2 minutes. I would love it and it would definitely put Webroot at the very top in my books for any anti-virus.

The right-click function "Permanently erase with Webroot" in Webroot SecureAnywhere operates as expected if the selected files constitute a proper subset of the files within the next-level containing folder. I.e., the files are removed and the folder is retained with its remaining files. If, on the other hand, one elects to remove all the files in the folder, the folder is also removed. This behaviour is not consistent with that of other secure delete utilities with which I am familiar, nor for that matter with the behaviour of the standard Windows regular delete function. There are several circumstances in which one might prefer to retain the empty folder, for example, if some other program depends on the presence of the folder in question, whether empty or not. Because of these considerations, I think it would be desirable if the Webroot right click permanent delete option operated standardly, or at least that a simple option to configure it to operate in this way were made available.

Keyboard navigation on WSA interface

Status: New
by Community Expert Advisor explanoit on ‎11-02-2013 09:29 PM


Some time in the future please consider allowing the WSA interface to be modified and navigated via the keyboard via tab+arrow+alt keys. I know you have a completely custom GUI implementation so I'm understanding about why it's not already, but it should be accessible to those without the use of a mouse.

Remove or fix the Webroot scrolling header

Status: New
by Community Expert Advisor explanoit ‎11-02-2013 06:34 PM - edited ‎11-02-2013 06:36 PM

The scrolling header above all pages on this site is improperly spaced and rendered after the rest of the page has loaded.
This leads to a very annoying jump in the location of everything on the page every single time you navigate. It is extremely annoying.

Please either remove this element or invest resources so it does no degrade the user experience. It's doing Webroot no favors as it is now.

Do not delete PUA uninstallers

Status: New
by Community Expert Advisor explanoit on ‎11-02-2013 06:29 PM

Please do not delete PUA uninstallers. These uninstallers do work for most PUA, and they will do a much better job cleaning up the system than WSA can ever do. It's very important they be left in place otherwise you are leaving customers with software in an inconsistent state.


I previously put in a business ticket about this, but I want to make sure it's seen on the consumer side.

It'd be great if the trial time increased to 30 days instead of 14 days only. Many of my friends usually expects a whole month of trialing of WSA as offered by most other AV vendors.

If you don't have automatic program updates enabled, there is no prompt that there is a new version available. If you manually check when one is available you get a message saying: version x.x.x.x is available, do you want to update? So a prompt exists already, making it easier to implement one. 
Most of the time when a new version is released, it is not yet rolled out to all clients, so manually checking for updates manually doesn't detect anything yet. So it would be usefull to have a prompt when it is rolled out to your client.

I would like to see a better password manager app for the Android. Th vault work ok on th PC but I think we need a better access/mobile for the Android phones. I would like to see something like eWallet, keeper or Genie mobile. You try and enter/update the passwords list with the current websecure app - it's awful !!! pleas make it look/navigate alot better.

Keycode Management

Status: New
by ChuckFromFlorida on ‎10-10-2013 09:10 AM

I really like the webbased management feature of the SecureAnywhere Complete product.  One enhancement that I would think useful is on the Keycode Management Page.  I think it would be very useful to know how many of the "seats" of any particular keycode have been assigned.  I have five keycodes attached to my account, but I cannot readily tell which ones I have assign already and whether there are any "seats" or uses of a code available.  I can I guess go to each machine and manually write down each code assigned, but that takes quite a bit of extra work that I would think the webapp could easily do for me.


Just an idea.

It's great that Webroot has an ethos of charitable giving, community involvement, and various philanthropic projects. I'd like to suggest  (if not already existing) that this could be possibly extended in a couple of ways, hopefully bringing more widespread dissemination of information, and subsequent increased success:


1. A Community Thread for suggestions to Committee for coming year, and comments/input into current projects

2. Perhaps a link (e.g. via button under My Account tab) in software client app which gives info on current projects, make a donation,  or make a suggestion or comment.


Any expansion/s of this area of involvement can only bring benefits all round.
