Before I install WebRoot on our Android devices:
Webroot requires every Android permission I can imagine. Does Webroot only use these for my scanning, and protection? OR- does webroot collect some information for their own purposes?
According to WebRoot's privacy statement, WebRoot can collect and share my personal information for its own business purposes, including sharing with third-parties. That's not something with which I am comfortable. I hate spyware. The thought that I just paid for some irks me. Set me straight.
Well, since posting above, I have been doing some searches on the Web, but WebRoot already knows that. WebRoot collects every detail of my personal information and browsing history. There's lots of information in this community about WebRoot's privacy policies and the more I read the less comfortable I am.
From WebRoot's privacy statement: "We may combine information we collect from the internet or other companies with personal information you give to us and other information we collect about you." How does this protect my devices?
If you use WebRoot's cloud storage, you agree not to store any personal information there? Really?
What is WebRoot's refund policy? If I uninstall WebRoot on Windows 10, does it remove all traces of software, services and processes installed by WebRoot? It appears that I have "protected" myself by means of a giant information vacuum cleaner. That information can be and is shared with third-parties for commercial purposes. I wish I had done more research before uninstalling my still-active McAfee product (and I hate McAfee).
