Hi, I tried to enable DNS protection for a macOS device (v10.15.3 Catalina). I noticed there is only a Windows icon on “Install DNS Protection” settings. Does this mean DNS protection is not yet supported on macOS? I checked the docs but couldn’t find anything about this. Is there a way to manually install the DNS protection agent if it is not possible via the policy settings? Thanks for any help.

Hello @ronnel Welcome to the Webroot Community forum. :relaxed:

I’m not sure of this question you ask about DNS on a Mac computer running Catalina. I’ll ping our forum manager @freydrew to see if he knows.

Thank you,

Dave.

It is possible to protect Macs, but only through the network version of DNS protection. As you noted by the Windows only icon, we have not yet released a Mac agent that allows remote and granular control of DNS. It is actively under development and should be released next quarter.

Hi @freydrew@ProTruckDriver thanks for your reply. I will be waiting for the next quarter’s release.

Also Webroot needs to desperately bring back DHCP support on the network level. And support for enforcing DNS when VPN’s are running. A LOT of work to go. 

Pull your socks up Webroot and crack the whip. LOL

 

Cheers
