Hi there -- I have two computers (one still on OS Catalina, one OS Big Sur) operating with Webroot.
The Webroot window opens every time I turn on my computer. Maybe it sounds insignificant but it’s intensely annoying considering it should just be a background app you should never notice or see running !
In System Preferences I’ve tried adding it to “login items” and selecting “hide”... no-go.
So I’ve removed it from “login items” entirely, but of course the app’s internal settings override this choice as the app is intended to run at all times … in the background
Obviously I’ve un-checked “open at login” from the application while it’s in the dock, and removed it from the dock entirely.
Yet every time I turn on my computer, there it is -- bouncing in the dock and opening its window -- until I manually close out of it.
I’ve found many forums online of people trying to solve this issue with no resolution -- Surely it would be easy enough to code in a preferences option to choose “do not open any windows at login” ? This is a background app -- not something I need to look at every time I turn on my computer. I have several colleagues similarly frustrated by this. Please help!
(This was the issue raised 4 years ago -- I tried everything suggested here)
(Supposedly a feature request was made for this -- which was subsequently removed)
