edit: Title should be MacOS users able to uninstall Webroot without* admin


I am curious if this is just some of our devices or if this is a wider issue.


Currently Webroot clients on 9.1.x.x can be uninstalled without any password requirement.

If you go to the About SecureAnywhere page of the client, you will see a link to uninstall Webroot. If you click it, and click yes, you don’t get any sort of password prompt or “this device is managed” prompt.


Anyone else have this behavior?

Edit: We have since disabled the GUI for all our devices to be on the safe side.
