[h2]Question[/h2]When I try to log in with my email address, password, and keycode its giving me an error saying "Login failed. The email or password you entered is incorrect." What do I do now? [h2]Answer[/h2][h3]Is the Device Online?[/h3] If Webroot cannot connect to the internet at all when entering your username and password, it may misinterpret the lack of connectivity as an indication that your username or password is incorrect. Please open a browser and go to a new page to see if you have internet connectivity. If not, please troubleshoot your device's internet connectivity issue first. Webroot cannot reach out to our servers if your device cannot connect to the internet. [h3] [/h3][h3]Pre-Filled Email Address[/h3]The number one cause for this issue is that the OS pre-fills the Google Account email address, but the user's email is a different email address. For example, on the phone, I might be logged in as firstname.lastname@example.org, but my Webroot acco
Good afternoon, I just installed Webroot on my Kindle Fire HD 8.9. As part of the set up I wanted to set up the password and set WR as a device administrator. The webroot set up keeps telling me the device administrator is in an unsafe status. When I click on the fix button it takes me back to set up screen and I end up going into the loop seeing the same thing. When I go to the kindles settings page it will not let me select Webroot as an administrator, it shows up under the administrator section but is not selected. Any idea how to fix this so I can lock down the system with a password? Thanks
How do I change or remove the finger-swipe code (9-point map) I have to enter to open my phone screen each time? When I installed SecureAnywhere on my Moto X, it gave me the option of setting up a swipe pattern on a 9-point map, which I did. Now I want to change the pattern or just skip it altogether, but I can't find that option in settings.
I need assistance. I've been running Webroot on my android phone for over a year and have never received a threat notification until today. Antivirus scan detects: Application Threat - Device Management - com.mediatek.dm. When I click on Webroot to remove this app, Webroot responds with: UNSUCCESSFULL. Metro PCS is my mobil phone carrier. In the past couple weeks, MetroPCS updated their system app to include an update with Data Maximizer. This app update is supposed to manage my music & video data transmission more efficiently to keep my 4G usage lower. When I go into my phone's application menu and locate the app for Device Management com.mediatek.dm, I have clicked on STOP; I'm not offered the choice to DISABLE. The Webroot scan continues to show the High Risk threat, when I run removal, it continues to respond: Unsuccessfull. Webroot states that the threat is Trojan. Perhaps, Webrrot is observing the MetroPCs performing Data Maximizer
I'm sorry. I just purchased a Kindle Fire 9th Generation and trying to get the FREE Webroot SecureAnywhere App. The problem is that it isn't listed in the app section after a search - only the $15 one is listed although I see "2 results" after the search under Apps & Games but just the $15 appears.. I read as many articles about this in the community and would please like some easy to follow guidance for a dummy like me. Thanks,
Will Webroot work on a Kindle Fire HD?Knowledge Base
[h2]Question[/h2]Will Webroot work on a Kindle Fire HD? [h2]Answer[/h2]Yes, however Amazon made a change in a recent update to the Kindle Fire HD, which prevents Device Administrator from being enabled for 3rd party applications. The Webroot SecureAnywhere Mobile app requires Device Administrator to use Lost Device Protection. Due to the limitations imposed by the device manufacturer, some normal app features, such as Wipe and password protection during uninstallation, may not function correctly.
I sent a scream to my phone using webroot app to see how well it works. After entering 4 number code it goes to home screen then disables itself by going to black screen before I can do anything. Tried going online to fix but no luck. Any suggestions.
I have Webroot on both my PC andmy mobile using WSA complete and its mobile equivalent on an Xperia T. The Xperia T keeps informing me that mylogin details are incorrect.athough Webroot works perfectly. Should I haveadiferentpassword for this device? or is there something else I have done wrong. I have arelatively secure password.
Webrott is hanging when scanning and I can't get it to update my scan definitions. I have done a fresh install from Google play and that has nont changed the issue. I am absolutely positive that this has been covered already, but I can't seem to find the thread with the solution. Sorry for the inconvenience.
After using the "scream " function, the phone requested an unlock code.I could not enter the code as the keyboard is coninuously jumping around. I rebooted to stop the scream but still I cannot enter this as the keyboardstares jumping around as soon as I touch the 'enter' space. I have swiftkey set as default keyboard. Any help urgnetly appreciated. Graham
