As a yearly customer of webroot since the PrevX Edge Days, (Probably 10 or 11 years now), I have lost so much confidence in WR over the past couple of years. It got so terrible on Windows that I completely did away with all my microsoft desktop computers in our home, (we had 7), and once webroot was able to be used on Mac we switched to Mac products & a few android products. For awhile things were great, seemed like the good ole days when WRSA would run in the background and I rarely had to look at it, but it was there and keeping everything nice and protected. Now I can’t power up a macbook without going through webroot chaos. Sometimes it wants me to enter my KC - which still has 200 days left on it - then once KC is entered it begins “Preparing for scan” which never progresses. I’ve uninstalled and installed fresh disk image and whole 9 yards multiple times only to have the process seem fixed, then repeat the same series of problems then next day. These are the type of issues, c
My webroot has recently been bugging out says I’m not subscribed even though my license is valid through 2022. When I check my account status is says “Waiting for license.” I uninstalled and redownloaded webroot through the management console but upon installation the app just doesn’t work at all. When I open webroot it shows up on the dock bar below but there’s no home screen or anything. What gives?
Do I need to un/Reinstall? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Im a complete noob when it comes to Computer antivirus software so its probably an easy fix/readily available information that I was simply too dull to find. Thanks in advance!
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

Since I upgraded my MAC to Big Sur recently, my Time Machine backup stopped working. After a week of diagnostic with Apple tech support, it was determined that Webroot SecureAnywhere was preventing the MAC backups from working. I uninstalled Webroot, and suddenly, Time Machine started working again. I let it work for a few days. Then, I reinstalled Webroot, and immediately, Time Machine stopped working again. So my question…. Has this been reported and can Webroot do something about it?
Have been using WSA over three years. First time, today, received the Full Disk Access request. Am running macOS Big Sur, 11.2.3. Went to Security & Privacy, Privacy Tab, went to Full Disk Access, WSA not listed. Went to Files and Folders WSA listed. Full Disk Access listed under WSA icon but greyed out. Any recommendation?
WebRoot Secure Anywhere - MacOS Security Feature has been disabled. iMac on startup this morning. WebRoot Secure Anywhere displays information dialogue box that states: “MacOS Security Feature has been disabled”. Only one action available - “OK”. WSA stays Green & Protected. So what feature has been disabled? How to re-enable the Security Feature?
so, I have had my computer crashing a lot recently and I thought its malware, so I tried Webroot. I was just thinking “install, scan, and remove” but I was wrong. it won't install! no matter how many times I try, its just stuck on that, I let it make changes and everything, just get stuck Again… I need some help, I want to scan my system badly and I already bought it, thats a waste of money. Thanks :D’
Pretty clear up top, but we’re seeing a lot of customers with Webroot (we sell/support) on Mojave and higher having the same ongoing/reoccuring issues:False positives Scans forever Constant “component installer failure” after startup System Analyzer component crashes (Big Sur) when run as a secondary applet via LMI connection And a general Compatibility update for M1 platform would be niceIDK what our Inter-Company IT has tool wise, nor what interactions they’ve had with WR itself, but from a Front Line standpoint, it’s too common at this point. Even on my own device testing, I run into the same types of issues. It seems like there are More issues as you go from older to newer OS. Even after messing around with permissions and such. I’ve seen links for different versions and it would be good to know if we need to be advising certain versions based on the OS or if there are any different steps (from the listed installation process) that may need to be used.
I've been seeing Webroot's wsdaemon process taking up 90% of my RAM (7.27 of 8GB), after which it starts to cause issues with other applications, e.g. that Chrome will show 'the connection has been reset' for various websites. After I kill wsdaemon in the activity manager, things operate normally. I have had to do this multiple times after doing a clean install of MacOS Catalina. I reinstalled the OS from scratch, i.e. a clean install. I've also kept the OS and Webroot SecureAnywhere up to date. The scan log doesn't show any errors. Any thoughts? It seems like a memory leak to me.
