macOS Mojave Upgrdae info:
Apple will be releasing macOS Mojave soon, maybe next week. I have a few questions about Webroot and macOS Mojave.
1. Is Webroot ready for the new upgrade in WSA Release and Beta?
2. With the new Security Features in Safari will Password Manager work in all browsers?
3. When upgrading to Mojave do we keep WSA installed or would it be better to uninstall, upgrade then reinstall?
4. If we keep WSA installed during the upgrade, what Version of WSA do we need before upgrading to Mojave, or does it matter?
5. Will we see the Webroot Filter icon in Safari like we see the P/W manager icon? Right now there is no Webroot Filter icon showing in Safari.
If anyone has anymore questions to add, please do so. Thank you.

Automatic Strong Passwords
In macOS Mojave, your Mac automatically suggests strong, unique passwords for each and every website where you need to create a login. All of these passwords are stored on your Mac, and you can even ask Siri to open up your list of iCloud Keychain passwords, which are synced across your devices.
Password management apps like 1Password will also be able to provide passwords for websites and apps through a new Password AutoFill extension that's available to developers.
You can share your passwords more easily in macOS Mojave with Password AirDrop options, which let you AirDrop your saved passwords to other devices and other people for quicker password exchanges.
Password AuditingApple now lets you know if you've used a password that's too weak or has been used across multiple sites with password auditing features. Your Mac will flag inadequate passwords and provide you with an option to go right to the site in question to update it with something more secure.
Security Code AutoFillMany apps and services offer two-factor authentication, requiring a code texted to your phone number. In macOS Mojave (and iOS 12), Apple detects these incoming security codes from the Messages app and offers it as an AutoFill option so you don't need to leave the website to access the code.
Wow how did I miss this Thread? Great information and hopefully we all can get some answers from management? We need to know!
As usual it is always best to keep our product up to date in order to have the full spectrum of features that we offer, as well as the highest level of protection for your sysytems.
Thanks for the information/update. 🙂
Just want to add to touch on the rest of the questions.
Our existing extensions for Password manager and web filtering needed some work which is completed and is pending review from apple.
Once we have that approval. The experience should be the same as it is today.
So I waited another 24hrs before installing Mojave and sure enough PWM still failed:
Fortunately while NASA failed your side of the pond to include PWM and WF for Safari then at least our local EuropeanSpaceAgency had included the alternative competing (but debatably, far superior) Agile 1Password functionality, so at least I'm not "Lost-In-Space" for too long until Webroot ( hopefully/eventually ) catch's up after their Lunar orbital deviation delay? :p
It is really super great to hear from you! I'm always wondering how our Mac testing guy is doing. 😉 You sound good! Humorous as always.
Thank you for the Mojave & Webroot update. Webroot has been having issues with PWM in Firefox for some time now. So now Webroot's filters aren't working in Safari? Not good...
Take care and again thanks for chiming in. 🙂
I haven't upgraded to Mojave yet, I believe I'll hold off on that until the vendors catch up with Apples update since I use the Mac as my main computer. Looks like Apple caught a lot of vendors with their pants down. LOL
Install is atempted, install is paused due to security, enter password, installation "finishes" however NO Webroot agent. Webroot shows in Applications.
Can not uninstall, says app running however attempt to run app does not start it. Have to boot into Safe mode to remove. Subsequent install attempts do not work as multiple files are still in place. Attempt to search and remove all files allows a "partial" install...meaning the app starts (not at boot up), can be easily bypassed, can not add the code to authenticate it.
Similar experience with 6 different systems.
It's the weekend now, we'll see what support says...
I haven't had any problems uninstalling / installing WSA on my Mac running Mojave. I have done many installs and uninstalls since the upgrade to Mojave for testing purposes. When you say that the apps are still running, did you shut down WSA before uninstalling? Here are some KB Articles on Uninstall /Install of WSA:
Uninstall WSA from Mac Computer:
Install WSA on Mac Computer:
I'm also going to ping the Webroot Employees for help on your problem to make sure your problem is taken care of. Like you said this is the long weekend and it's a Holiday so the employees should be in this Wednesday.
Have to boot into safe mode to remove it. The problem then is that the uninstaller never runs so files are left behind causing more problems.
I don't post lightly, I've been in IT for 30 years and supporting Macs is a good chunk of it so me contacting support means I've spent wayyyyy to much time troubleshooting already.
Sent info to support but they don't give out tickets numbers...
Here are all the files left behind:
If you want all the files deleted, I recommend to submit a Support Ticket or Contact Webroot Support and let them delete the files for a clean uninstall.
