Despite comments I’ve read Webroot Secure Anywhere 22.214.171.124 :1563 is not compatible with OS Catalina 10.15.7. In my case Webroot is in constant scan mode and as it near completion is throws up an error message that's filled with coding. Once you close that the scan process starts again and I believe this problem is causing other minor issues although Webroot tech support have assure me my computer is still protected. When I last spoke to their second tier tech support they said they were aware of this issue which has affected some, not all, users and that a new release of Webroot would be released in late November 2020. That hasn’t happened and now I’m debating whether to upgrade my MAC Book Pro to OS Big Sur or wait till Big Sur has an update to iron out the initial bugs? Anyone else having this issue???
Any news on a fix to Webroot constantly popping up asking for Full Disk Access in System Preferences even though its already in there twice. Unfortunately the message box pops up and prevents me from accessing other windows and I have a heck of a time getting it to close . Two other products I am running on my Mac (Logmein Pro and QuickBooks Desktop Mac 2020) have issues causing me a lot of grief and lost time troubleshooting. This is totally an Apple issue making it clear they don’t have to play nice with others.
I noticed a few days ago that Webroot was not running regular scans. When I tried to run manually it wouldn’t complete. Came up with an internet error. I then noticed for whatever reason the software needed to be verified. I copied in the proper code and thought that would be the end of it. However it will still not complete a scan. In addition, maintenance services will not complete. It tells me Safari Location services is on (as an alert), to which I have turned off ALL location and it still lists as it is on. Catalina, 10.15.4.
Hello. I am a long-time Webroot user and lover, and am surprised to find myself in this failure situation. I need your help please. Below are the actions I took:Logged into the Webroot Console and downloaded the wsamac.dmg for Mac. Opened that .dmg, then a small Webroot SecureAnywhere window was presented containing a green W icon in the middle. Double-clicked that Webroot icon in that small window, then received a system (OS) window stating, “Webroot SecureAnywhere” is an app downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?” Clicked the Open button, then that system window disappeared, and the Green Webroot icon resides in my Tray at the bottom of the screen. INSTALL PROCESS CEASED at this point, and I was NOT presented a screen to enter my Keycode to complete the install. Resulting condition is:Webroot icon is in the Tray. The system (OS) considers Webroot to be “open”. In Applications, the Webroot icon is present. On the flash storage ‘hard drive’, I see Webro
I have Webroot installed on two PCs and now want to add it to an old Mac running El Capitan OS. I have coverage for three devices so should not be a problem and I have read here and elsewhere that you can install on Macs and PCs with the same key code. After downloading the installer, I get to the second screen (after language choice) where I am to add my key code but the entry box will not accept any characters at all - believe me as I tried every key on the keyboard. The display flashed in response to each keystroke but nothing is entered into the box. Thoughts?
I am using Webroot 126.96.36.199: 1607 on my MacBook Pro. However, I continue to get the brown (!) and “Product Update Available” message. When I click the “Update Now” button, nothing happens. What’s wrong, and what should I do? I have uninstalled and reinstalled twice but the problem persists.

Hello,WSA updated automatically on my MacBook Pro several days ago to version 188.8.131.52:1586. It was a quick update and much faster than previous updates.I am running WSA on macOS BigSur 11.4.The first thing I noticed after updating WSA is:scanning no longer starts immediately after log-in. Instead, only the WSA window appears after log-in, as before, and there are no more simultaneous multiple scans occurring after log-in.The WSA window however will still appear after log-in.After several days, WSA is still running fine.
Webroot released an announcement in November 2020 that secure anywhere would support the Apple M1 processor I have been trying to install Webroot SecureAnywhere on my M1 based MacBookPro since November 2021 without any success. I opened a support ticket detailing the fact that Mac Agent v184.108.40.206 just hangs during the installation process. The response that I received was:“Hello, Thank you for contacting Webroot. M1 processors are not currently supported. Regards, Webroot Support” MacOS Monterrey v12.3MacBookPro 2021Processor: M1 Pro
Hello everyone! I've been using Webroot for Mac a little more than a week now. I've noticed small issues with my Photoshop, like shortcuts that does not seem to work anymore. I tried everything in this article: [url=https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-stop-photoshop-mac.html]https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-stop-photoshop-mac.html[/url] Unfortunately it didn't help. I then noticed that they have actually mentioned Webroot in the article as one utilitie that might cause this issue. With that being said, they re-direct to Webroot support; "Contact Webroot for troubleshooting or any available updates". Anyone who have had this problem and/or might know the solution? Thanks in advance!
I keep receiving the error message “Full Disk Access”. And there is a threat in Webroot blocked files /Volumes/Installer+1/Installer.app/Contents/MacOS/QWDKocViL Should I continue to block or allow or monitor this threat? Is that the cause of the Full Disk Access error message?
Does the Webroot application installed in Mac OS (Sierra) extend protection to Windows running in an emulation (Parallels) within the Mac OS environment? Or should Webroot *also* be installed into the Windows enviroment?
If anyone can help me regain access to my desktop. I blocked a process and didn’t realize it was a needed process required to boot up my computer. I’m able to turn my Mac on , enter my user password, then it’s stuck at the middle of the loading bar “status” and I can’t get to my desktop. How is can I unblock or resolve my idiotic actions and regain control without being able to open we root on in my desktop the “classic” way.
