I just received a new Galaxy S4, and before I install webroot, I was wondering if there is any way to remove or tunrn off the logo that will be shown in the top bar on the screen of the phone?

Enter your username or e-mail address. We'll send you an e-mail with instructions to reset your password.
You can turn off the icon, but remember that this does not shut down protection: it only hides the icon.
See This Link for details.
May I ask why would you want to remove it as it gives you your security status?
I am generally in agreement with you. The first thing I want to see on any of my devices (Android, Kindle Fire HD, or PC) is Webroot load and give the ok.
However, some people really prefer to control the asthetics on their mobile devices as much as possible. We get this question from time to time in the consumer queue.
I've removed the icon in the past using the documented method. I've just reinstalled the software on my phone and it would appear the option to remove it is no longer available. I'm one of those who would prefer not to have it displayed unless there is a problem.
From the Menu key, I now have "Settings" and "About".
Change Master Password
Set Application Password
Collect and Mail Logs
Poll for Commands
Does anyone know if the option is no longer available, or has it being moved elsewhere?
I have tried to look over past Android release notes, but I am not able to locate anything specific to changes in the Settings menu. What you describe however, makes it obvious that changes have been done. I am sorry I am not able to help with details, but my own Andriod device is now so old that it is no longer supported.
Hopefully we will have another reply from a current Android user with better information, but if not you can also submit a Trouble Ticket (Link below) and ask Support about it directly.
I believe that if the phone is stolen and the theif sees the notification, he will be more likely to do a hard reset on the phone to prevent it from being tracked as opposed to the Webroot program being hidden a little in the apps page.
I have an HTC One and the menu button provides only Settings and About (no General Settings - something I found in a thread from 2012) and the Settings tab is only for changing Passwords, collecting and mailing logs and polling for commands.
Have you found a way to address the problem for new devices? Are you planning on releasing an update for this?
I find that if I let every icon that wants to be shown up there to actually stay visible permanently, then it is just distracting from notifications about stuff that is happening here and now. I only want notification updates for when something in the status changes.
Cheers for your help!
Glad to have you on board..
Keep posting your ideas too!
The problem with that is that I fear now I wont get any notifications even if I do get a virus or malware problem.
Not sure will look around for that question to be answered since it's a good one.
Best approach to try and get some feature added or changed is to log a feature request in the Ideas Exchange (see top of any page). CHeck out first to see if anyone has already done so and if they have you can add your comment & more importantly support the idea by giving it kudos...the Development Team review the Exchange regulalrly and will update features in terms of where theya re in the overall review process, etc.
If a feature request does not exist already then you are most welcome to start such a request then see it (hopefully) garner support from the Community as described above.
Recommend that you give it a try...and if you do try to take time to clearly stae what the feature is, how it should work and why you believe it is an important addition to WSA.
It is just one big learning experience...and so much fun...:D
