11/13/19 - Please click here to jump to the Home Webroot SecureAnywhere Mac solution For Business macOS Catalina users, please go here. Dear Webroot MAC Users, We are experiencing an issue with Webroot SecureAnywhere for Mac version 126.96.36.199 and Apple’s latest macOS, 10.15 Catalina. If you haven’t updated to macOS 10.15 Catalina: Our current software version is not compatible with Catalina and if you update to macOS Catalina (released October 7, 2019), it will prevent Webroot SecureAnywhere from functioning properly. It also will generate alerts on your computer that will be repeated even after dismissal. We will update this article when we have released the version of Webroot Secure Anywhere that is compatible with Catalina. There is no impact to Windows operating systems. If you have updated to macOS 10.15 Catalina: You may experience continual alerts on your computer that read “’WSDaemon’ can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software”. The alerts are re
webroot was installed on my computer a while back. I keep getting random pop-ups from chrome so i want to run webroot to see if my system is infected. Whenever I right-click webroot or right-click to try to open it, nothing happens. Why can't I open this app to run a diagnostic test on my computer?
Well well well. This is interesting. Having another issue due to Catalina so I called Apple. In the call I also advised them that Catalina broke Webroot. Apple says I don't need Webroot antivirus software. They say I don't need any antivirus software. They said and I quote: "Webroot is actually something that has been incompatible and not recommend to use as well as any other antivirus for multiple software updates now." "We do not recommend you use an antivirus on a Mac it actually inhibits the security on the machine." I asked: "The Mac protects me without it?" The answer: " That is correct."

Webroot keeps asking me for full desk access over and over. I check my system preferences to make sure it’s checked and it is. I even removed it from the list and added it back again. It will start scanning for a few minutes and the Systems Preferences window pops up again. I have uninstalled and redownloaded the app several times and it still keeps asking me for full disk access. Thanks for any help! Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4 Internet Security Plus
I just installed Webroot onto my Mac after, due to security reasons, my last subscription was cancelled. I downloaded the program but once I click on the app it won’t launch to allow me to actually input my key code or sign in and finish the download process. I have tried re downloading multiple times and nothing I am doing is helping. The program is not giving me a message or anything, when I click/double click it just does nothing. I put in a ticket but there’s been no response so any help would be great! Thank you
When dragging to the trash an error pops up that displays “The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items.” Trying to uninstall with CleanMyMac X lists the following: This item was cleaned partially. Errors: "/Library/Application Support/Webroot" couldn’t be removed due to lack of permissions. "/Library/Extensions/SecureAnywhere.kext" couldn’t be removed due to lack of permissions. "/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.webroot.security.mac.plist" couldn’t be removed due to lack of permissions. "/Library/LaunchAgents/com.webroot.WRMacApp.plist" couldn’t be removed due to lack of permissions. "/Applications/Webroot SecureAnywhere.app" couldn’t be removed due to lack of permissions. "/Applications/Webroot SecureAnywhere.app" couldn’t be removed due to lack of permissions.
Couldn’t get Webroot to update from 188.8.131.52 before Mac Big Sur update, so updated to Big Sur then tried to update Webroot again. Both times, Webroot accepts my keycode, then Mac accepts my password for change permission, then it goes to an “Installing SecureAnywhere” screen with an “Installing SecureAnywhere” loading bar which only goes part way and freezes. It looks like I have the “Webroot Filtering Extension Mac” on Google Chrome already. Why won’t Webroot finish authorizing installation of the update?
Im just wondering if there's a complete Sudo or Terminal Commands that will remove all files from Webroot for MAC. I've been struggling for years that we always have to connect to support to remove the AV from our computers. No uninstallers or removal tool available. Why is that? The support agents seem to run all commands, why is it not available on support websites for a guide to completely remove it and just always redirect for filing a ticket.
I just update my cataline and now my Webroot is not working. I know it wasn’t supported as a 64bit software and I’m assuming thats most likely the cause. I reisntall it and see if its compatible or not. I followed the instruction but but the link brings me to the webpage to buy it. Any help on getting it back would be helpful!
Dear Webroot for MAC users, Later this month, Apple will release a new version of macOS, macOS 10.15 Catalina. We’re working closely with Apple to ensure our software is compatible with macOS 10.15 and plan to have an update in the coming weeks. Until then, upgrading your device to macOS 10.15 will prevent Webroot from functioning properly as it is not compatible. We will inform you when it is safe to upgrade your macOS. If you need help with Webroot in the meantime, please reach out via the appropriate links below: · Business Support: [url=https://mysupport.webrootanywhere.com/supportwelcome.aspx?]https://mysupport.webrootanywhere.com/supportwelcome.aspx?[/url] · Consumer Support: [url=https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/servicewelcome.asp]https://detail.webrootanywhere.com/servicewelcome.asp[/url] · Best Buy Support: [url=https://www.bestbuy.com/services/remotesupport]https://www.bestbuy.com/services/remotesupport[/url] or 1-888-BEST-BUY Thank you, Pawani Vaddi, Sr Product Ma
I recently received a keycode to update my expired Webroot but everything I have done to get it up and working isn’t. I uninstalled the application, saved the keycode and attempted to reinstall. I get the application into my Mac but when I attempt to click on it to open, the top left hand side shows the application name but it does not show anything else on the top toolbar. It also does not go any further than that, no matter how many times I click it to open. No matter how many times I uninstall and attempt to reinstall, it keeps getting stuck on that step. I can’t even attempt to put in the new keycode to finish installation. I’m looking to see what other options are available.
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'm a PC guy, but my son's Girlfriend found a weird take-over web browser virus and I wanted to see if the WEBROOT product worked as well on her system as the 100+ I have running on windows systems... After downloading the program and (figuring out how to install the bloody thing) we entered the keys, and the splash screen says it's loading but it just sits there after she enters her MAC password, nothing happens. Tried 3 times. It just sits there like nothing is happening... What did I do wrong????
Anyone have any information regarding Webroot SecureAnywhere 184.108.40.206:1607 (SecureAnywhere CE 21.4) compatible with the latest MacOS Monterey 12.2? Do not want to install Monterey if Webroot isn’t going to run or has problems, like it did with Big Sur initially and therefore I didn’t have any security software running on my mac until Webroot updated to a new version. Thanks.
I updated my iOS to Monterey this past Wednesday and now my Webroot isn’t working. Have noticed that Webroot isn’t addressing this issue at this moment for some reason. ??? Should I uninstall and reinstall my Webroot at this time? Should I wait to do anything as Monterey is a brand NEW software update for Macs?
Hi, We've received a new 2017 Macbook (no touchbar) with Sierra installed. For some reason we can't get Webroot installed on it. At first when we run the .dmg, it would open, activate and before it would run the automatic scan, it shuts down. No icon in the taskbar at the top is showing. Can't open the program itself. Only the service is running in the Activity panel. We can only remove the incomplete installation via Safe mode. Tried to drag and drop the app into the Application folder and start the app, but that also doesn't work. Enabled the Root user and tried to install it, but that gave us the same scenario as above. Latest version of Webroot has been downloaded.
Webroot Secure AnyWhere ver. 220.127.116.11:1391 installed Web Filtering Package ver. 18.104.22.168 keeps cancelling my scans after I recently updated the program. I followed all the instructions when a window popped up saying to open system preferences, click full disk access in privacy tab an open up the application folder. I did all of the above multiple times to no avail. Anyone know how to fix this? I would be very grateful. Tried contacting webroot support several times but got no answer. Thanks wmausa ( Please do not post email as this leads to Spam) Edited by ssherjj
We will occasionally get an alert about a uncategorized file on our Macs. The error will always be something similar to the following:MRT, Uncategorized file, \Library\Apple\System\Library\InstallerSandboxes\.PKInstallSandboxManager-SystemSoftware\BF320ED5-6C90-4CB6-B2F4-84E54AFD49FD.activeSandbox\Root\Library\Apple\System\Library\CoreServices\MRT.app\Con, 00000000000000000000000000000000, The MRT will always be in a random sandbox location. I’ve talked with support on this and they said that this is a known issue and that Webroot’s whitelist only allows for MRT to be in one location, so when it is found in another location it throws this false positive. They also said that the only method for releasing this file and allow it is to put the device in an unmanaged profile and then release the file from the agent on the Mac directly.I have several issues with both the false positive AND the way to fix it.Why is Webroot not using application signing to verify applications and still relying
I'm trying to uninstall webroot and reinstall it on my mac. I went to finder and deleted the app but it won't go away. I tried to reboot into safe mode but it hung. I reset the SMC and PRAM and tried again but it didn't work. Then I downloaded webroot again and tried to install. Double clicking on the installer does nothing. Any suggestions? This is urgent. Thanks!
Apple just released macOS 10.15.6. Has anyone installed this update on their Macs/MacBook Pro? Has anyone come across any incompatibility issues or problems running WebRoot SecureAnywhere version 22.214.171.124 under 10.15.6?
I have a Mac Mini and MacBook Pro. Both have small hard drives and don’t have many files as I mainly use them for web browsing. Both have WSA IS Plus installed and I have excluded scanning mounted drives and removable media (Time Machine backups are on the removable media). I had an issue when I upgraded to OS Catalina but WSA tech support uninstalled and reinstalled the compatible version (126.96.36.199:1283) 2 days ago. Scans are taking over 7 hours and sometimes over 80 hours! This has been happening before and since WSA was reinstalled by tech support. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this? I would rather not switch from full scans to quick scans. Thanks!
