I have an unrooted Motorola Droid phone with Android 2.2.3 on it. I have had Webroot Security & Antivirus installed on it for approx 6 months. I was using the call & SMS blocking feature and had multiple numbers entered to be blocked. The app had been blocking text and MMS messages from these numbers until the last update. After the last update the app no longer blocked text and MMS messages from the selected numbers. I am not sure if it was blocking phone calls or not since then since I have not received any phone calls from the numbers. I have tried reentering the numbers and reinstalling the app without any success. Any thoughts or suggestions on how to get this feature working again as this was one of the main reason I installed this product to start with?
Hello, I changed the SIM card in my phone, and now it's locked and I can't unlock it even when I changed my password and typed in a new one. I'm on vacation overseas and really need for my phone to work. Is there any way someone could help me if I provide my account info? Thanks! Laura

Using a Droid X on Android 2.3.3, running no other AVs I'm getting the error that "Login failed. the email or password is incorrect" I have the right email address in (not the default[b]@gmail[/b]) and i've typed the password with the swype keyboard, the default keyboard, and copy/paste from a notepad app. I have submitted a ticket for this, but I thought I'd check with the forums to see if there was a quicker way to get this up and running. Thanks
How to Cause the Device to ScreamKnowledge Base
[h2]Question[/h2]I read that when you need to use the Scream feature to find your phone in the house you need to send your phone an SMS. How do you send your phone an SMS if it's lost and you cant make an SMS? [h2]Answer[/h2]There are a couple of ways to cause the phone to scream. The first method is to log in to your [url=https://my.webrootanywhere.com/default.asp]online account[/url], select "Mobile Security," click on your phone, and select the "[url=https://mobile.webroot.com/brands/webroot/en/help/lost_device_protection.htm]Lost Device Protection[/url]" tab. You will then see a button you can select to send the SCREAM command as well as the other options available to you. Another way to do this is via your cellular provider's website or another smartphone. Most cellular providers allow you to send SMS messages from your account page. To do it via SMS, text your number with "scream password" (replacing password with your Webroot password).
Locked Device on SIM Card ReplacementKnowledge Base
[h2]Question[/h2]I have put a new sim card in my phone, and now my phone is locked. The big problem is my phone is not online, so the command I send is not responding. Please, what else can I do? [h2]Answer[/h2]This is the Webroot lock screen: [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/774iDEBFD3475BB0A79F.png[/img] If this isn't the screen you're referring to, you are not looking at the Webroot lock screen, and you should contact support for the lock screen you are seeing. If this is the screen you are seeing, please read on. The password is normally checked online. However the password is also stored locally on the device specifically for cases like this. Anytime you successfully log in by verification online, the app updates its local cache for In Case Of Emergencies logins. This has the side effect of meaning that the phone will always remember the OLD password if you change it online until it is able to verify the
I'm very happy with my webroot secureanywhere complete in my PC, which detected and removed threats that no other antivirus could. However, I can't log in in my Samsung Android smartphone. There's always a Mail/password error massage, though they are right. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app (WR complete version) with no results. Would you please help me? Thanks.
Hi, just introducing myself because I need to post something of concern :) probably the wrong thread, but .... I'm a newbie here. What I wanted to say is: My phone got stolen in Barcelona last week, so I remotely locked it, assuming it is safe now. However:::::::::::: I got a new phone, installed Webroot on it, and locked it to test the feature. I'm scared now: the phone did mention it was locked, but....... I was still able to access the phone completely because the lock screen did not cover the menu-bar. Opened task manager...killed the lock-screen, and it was not locked at all anmore.... 3 second's worth of work. Should I worry now, or does something need to be fixed? Jeroen.

I currently switched to Webroot's Anywhere Essentials for my laptop(s), and have the chance to upgrade to the Complete. It claims to offer the same protection for my tablet. I'm aware that not all tablets have the same apps available made to them, so I'm asking Webroot's Complete can be used on my Nook? thank you.
Is SecureAnywhere compatible with Android 4.0 ICS? I just upgraded to an HTC One X, and installed SecureAnywhere. The antivirus ran fine, and from mobile.webroot.com I can see the phone registered and providing information (like last scan, last definitions update, etc.) but the lost device protection doesn't work. I turned it on in the app, and it shows as on in the website, yet under "Available Device Actions" in the "Lost Device Protection" tab of mobile.webroot.com, nothing shows up. Also, as I send SMS messages to the phone (lock pwd, locate pwd, etc.) they just go through as a regular text message ...
Phokus from team eos development here. Please do something about the data contained in the logs and perhaps consider truncating some of the data placed into those logs (logcat). Viewing logs is amassive security problem in android right now and there are pwd hashes in said logs.
I've logged in before and in fact have it set up on another phone, but when I try to log in to my new galaxy nexus with the correct email, password, and keycode its giving me an error saying "Login failed. The email or password you entered is incorrect." I have a rooted device and when I restore the app from my old device it's logged in and everything in the app is working, except the mywebrootanywhere.com site doesn't show my current device. So I uninstalled it and am trying to install it and login, when it's giving me this error. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just upgraded from WSAE 3 seat to WSAC 3. I followed the instructions for downloading and installing the app. I previously had Webroot Anti-virus on my phone which it uninstalled during the process. My problem is after accepting the terms it requires me to login. I enter my email, password and keycode. When I click login to account I get the following error message "Account creation failed. The license check server returned an invalid response. Raw Error: License check failed due to invalid keycode. Response code:1 nothing I do and neither keycodes will work. What do I do now.
Xoom Wifi. Webroot always worked normally. Since a while Webroot scans normally just up to sdcard, then it freezes, then after some time it crashes. I removed the external sdcard to see if that caused it but that didn't make difference. Obviously i can't remove the internal memory.
[b]"Account creation failed. The license check server returned an invalid response.[/b] [b]Raw Error: License check failed due to too many activations. Response code: 7"[/b] I saw the post in the forums on this and have tried the following: 1) Fixed keyboard settings so that it is not auto-capitalizing which didn't help. All letters that are supposed to be lower-case show up as upper-case. 2) Tried to paste the key with lower case letters (from a different application) and it gets converted when I paste the code into the field. Pastes fine into a few other applications. 3) Saw a suggestion to use the "old" key from a previous installation or the key from my PC. I can't find an older key than the one on my PC and it is all upper-case. Please help. I'm a very satisfied Webroot user and hope there is a relatively simple fix to the problem.
I purchased webroot secureanywhere complete. I downloaded the Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile Complete app for my android. I have entered my email address, password and keycode associated with my laptop subscription. I continually receive an error that says this "Your user credentials are not associated with this SecureAnywhere Complete keycode. Make sure you've created this user on my.webrootanywhere.com and try again." The keycode I entered IS associated with the email address and password i entered. The keycode i entered is the exact keycode shown in my "manage keycodes" section of my online account. Why isn't it recognizing it? Droid Bionic 3.2
