Does SecureAnywhere for Android support other browsers besides the standard browser?
I clicked on a link to a web survey (on google docs) and when I used the standard browser in android, Webroot popped up and said that the page might contain malware or spam and wanted to know if I wanted to continue. When I tried the same link with either the Dolphin or Firefox browsers, I expected to get the same message from Webroot. Much to my disappointment, Webroot did not pop anything up with either of these browsers, so my question is: Does Webroot support these browsers? It does not appear that it does support these browsers, which makes me sad for 2 reasons: 1) I have been using Webroot on my phone and have thought that my browsing was protected and 2) I really like Webroot, but if it only supports the standard browser, then I am going to have to look elsewhere for my security needs. I am using a Motorola Atrix 4G with stock android 2.3.6.
Lost phone question
I lost my phone on Saturday and I have the remote lock service activated. I have sent the scream and the locate commands but it appears mt device is not online. The history tab shows that the device last checked in 2 days ago. My question is if I rechange my phone service to another device then If whoever has my phone turns it on will the device lock or will my info on the phone be available to who has it? What is the best way to handle this?
Re: User credentials not associated
I did as you suggested and contacted Google Play. They say it is up to the developer to support their app. [b]Individual app developers[/b] Once the app (free or paid) has been successfully downloaded and installed on Google Play, the individual Android app developers (the person or group of people who actually make the app or game that you’ve downloaded) take it from there. If you’re having trouble with an app force closing, freezing or any other problems, these are things the developer should be able to help you with.

phone rings ONCE and THEN the call gets blocked.
With the Webroot Secure call blocker, the phone rings ONCE and THEN the call gets blocked. However, with my previous app ([i]Easy Filter Call and SMS Blocker[/i] by [i]Moonbeam[/i]), the phone does NOT ring at all. When will this be fixed? -------- (Latest update of Android on Xperia Pro)

Free Webroot Error
Hello, I have an HTC Legend phone, and I tried to run a Virus Scan. The following message occurs: Webroot failed to update its threat definitions. This likely means your device doesn't currently have internet access. You can continue your scan with the current definition set or cancel. Error: OutOfMemoryError processing def update. When I try to force definition updates the same error occurs. Can you help me. I don't want to continue run scans with old definitions, it won't be long before I'm not protected. Thanks.
Why did my phone get locked?
I have webroot installed on my mobile phone and have been using it fine for weeks. I used the phone in an airport OK and turned it off. I then needed to make another call and turned on the phone and up came the red webroot locked message. I did not ask for the phone to be locked and no one else has access to do that, so why did it happen? PS, I am not switching SIM card or anything like that. Just turned off the phone completely and turned it on again later to make a call.
Unwanted Advertising Apps
AT&T email and Dolphin Browser for tablets Ver 1.0 are leaving advertising apps on my homescreen. Is there a way that I can use Webroot to block this unwanted activity? I am concerned about collection of personal data since I have no idea how deep this intrusion goes, nor any idea of how to stop it.
No key code for free app - no features available
[u]From the mobile security website, you’ll be able to:[/u] [list] [*]Find your phone on a map if it’s lost or stolen* [*]Activate a scream alert to find your phone nearby* [*]Remotely lock your phone to protect your personal data like passwords, contacts, and photos[/list]How are you supposed to do any of that if you have to register first, and to register, you have to have a key code?
PC's work fine as does one Android phone, second doesn't
I am having a similar issue as several others on various postings but I'm unable to get a resolution so I thought I'd ask here. I have two PC's protected and working fine. My wife and I have exactly the same Android phones. My phone works fine but I am unable to log into Webroot through her phone and the the "the email or password you entered is incorrect". The online interface shows her phone "needing attention" and that the "USB debugging is enabled" where in fact it is not. I am unable to make the program run at all on her phone. Her phone did work just fine when new and she broke that phone and got an exact replacement and ATT moved her SIM card to the new phone. This is approximately when we started having issues with her Webroot software not working. What can I do to fix this? Thanks.
Is my mobile phone protected?
I bought Webroot Secure Complete 6 months ago and loaded it onto my computer, no problems. Now today, 06/16, bought my first ever android phone (Galaxy Ace) and thought that it was sensible to protect that as well. I've followed the Mobile Help instructions for downloading the app from the Google store onto my phone and the three icons have appeared in my app list. However, when I attempt to log in to my Webroot account via my mobile phone, using my username, password and keycode, it states that either the username or password is incorrect. (The email address on my mobile phone is not autofilled with an incorrect address.) This is despite me being able to login to my account on my computer using the same username and password. Also, my mobile phone has not appeared in the list of protected devices on my account. Any ideas why please?
