Remove Webroot icon from upper left corner
Hi Webroot Community, I think the product is great or at least the scanning files app that I've used (haven't had to use the wipe remote feature thankfully) but I have enough going on in my Android header that I'd like to get rid of the green "W" icon in the upper left corner but still have the app running in the background. Is that possible? Thanks, Legger
How to get rid of security/pass code after uninstalling. (ANDROID)
Hi, I recently insalled Webroot Security & Antivirus for my Android phone. I like the app alot but I sadly had to uninstall the program due to lack of space in my phone. I logged into webroot as well and removed the device from where I'd registered it. My problem is whenever I turn on my phone the screen lock thing still comes up (where it wants my security/pass number). I do not know how to get rid of the screen. I can get into my phone and everything but I just don't want the security screen to keep coming up every time even though I've uninstalled the app. I can't find any thing about this through my searches or in the options in my phone. Please help.
Locked out of my Motorola Razr
I recently reloaded Webroot SecureAnywhere after resetting my Motorola Razr. After resetting my account and answering the security questions I decided to "locate" my phone to see how it works. The map came up on the Webroot website, it showed me where my phone was and I was happy. The next time i picked up my phone it is locked. The "Lock Screen" comes on for a half a second then the screen/phone shuts off again. I was careful not to select any other option, including "Lock" but "locate my device" but somehow the phone is locked. How do I unlock it? All looks well when I relog into My Webroot. The log shows I located the phone some minutes ago but does not indicate it is locked. Nor do I see any indication that indicates that the phone is locked or how to locked it. After continuing to play with the phone the lock screen comes on for a 1/2 second then the phone shuts down. Sometimes then next screen unlock screen comes on for t

Please help me. My mobile device Samsung Galaxy Note II N7100 is locked by Webroot security. I change my chip (from 55 22 99462322 to 55 22 88043550) and the password (edit: removed user's password for security purposes) is unrecognized. How to proceed? Thanks. SERGIO VIANNA PEREIRA.
How do I download webroot for my Polaroid Tablet?
I purchased 4 new Polaroid Tablets for my kids for Christmas. They are Polaroid PMID800 Tablets. I have been trying to purchase Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete for these tablets and 1 other laptop that has McAfee that is expiring this month. I currently have Webroot on my own laptop and love the service. I have spoken with your Sales Dept twice in the past 2 days as I cannot figure out how to download Webroot on the Tablets. They Tablets do not have the Google Playstore on them and when I spoke to sales they said I could download Webroot from that App but we don't have it.I called them back and they said to try downloading the playstore App and then downloading the free Webroot anitvirus. I tried that too but it won't let me download the playstore app because even though the Tablets are powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich they are not on the list of compatible tablets for Google Playstore at this time so I can't download it. Hope you can help, my kids are chomping at the bit to

Android 4.2 - Multiple Users
Hi Guys, On upgrading to Android 4.2 and installing a second user. I had to reinstall webroot on the new account - Fairly straight forward The icon at the top of the screen on the second account is not green however, it is grey stating that "password protection is disabled" - There does not appear an option to rectify this.

Preventing access through the Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection by a device owned by another person.
A few days ago someone accessed my Android phone through either the Wi-Fi or the Bleutooth port and installed an app that threatened to disable all data and Internet services. I suspect that it was a prank that doesn't actually do anything because there was no effect to the operation of my phone but it was insulting and irritating to have my phone attacked in this way. I have since installed Webroot Secure Anywhere and I was wondering if it prevents such attacks and does it log any information that would help me to identify the culprit if necessary?
Activating Mobile App/Deleting User Account
I recently renewed my WRSA Complete subscription and had to reinstall the mobile app onto my phone. During the activation process, I'm prompted to enter my email address, password, and Keycode. I input all of the correct info, but the system tells me that the "Login failed. The email or password you entered is incorrect". At that moment, I remembered that I was previously directed to make a new user account from the web console to activate the product as a workaround a few months ago. I tried using that user account (again, with the right password/credentials), but the same error came back up. Will I have to make another user account to work around this again, and if so, how do I delete existing "users" from my account? There wasn't a clear way to do this in the "Manage Users" section of the web console. Any direction on this is greatly appreciated!

Scans finish but don't update status
I'm running on Toshiba Thrive updated with Android 4.0x Scans, both scheduled and manual, run normally and report "finished", but the program fails to updated the status. Even immediately after a "finished" scan, I still get the warning that the last scan was more than a week ago. I'm also getting periodic ""Webroot Stopped" messages, probably due to a program timeout when trying to update the status.
We bought the Secure Anywhere so it could be installed on 3 different machines. Using the. CD the first install went ok on a Win7 Laptop.The second install was for a ASUS TF300T Tablet. First the link for an Internet download was not right.Instead of presenting a downloafd link I was given a choice to buy or download a cheaper version.I called Bestbuy where it was purchased and told them the link didnt work. This woman had me try all kinds of links before we fuinally got to a account setup. The connection was lost or she hung up but Initial login was interupted. I tried to sign in multiple times, tried to open a new account. I need to gett with someone thhat can reset the account.The software is installed now.Itjust needs to be Authorised. Thank you for your help in advance. Bob

Phone stolen, can't figure out how to connect via computer
My phone was stolen last night and I'm trying to figure out how to use the locate phone feature or at the very least, lock the device. When I log onto Webroot on a PC, I can't find anywhere where my phone is recognized as a device. How can I access my phone through my PC? I have been following this information: [url=https://mobile.webroot.com/help/lost_device_protection.htm]https://mobile.webroot.com/help/lost_device_protection.htm[/url] but it does me no good when I can't find the device. Please help. At the very least I would like to find comfort in locking my device ASAP.

SecureAnywhere Mobile - Requesting to be a device administrator after update
After the latest update, I started getting a warning that Webroot needed to be set as a device administrator. I am trying to figure out why it needs that level of access. I have not seen anything here and the update notes were not clear enough. Can anybody tell me what this is needed? Thanks! Dan
