Seen several posts about this and now I have the same issue. The tray icon never has a padlock on it regardless of http or https. Thanks.
Ok if I shutdown and restart WSA then launch Chrome I see the padlock for about 10 seconds then it goes away. Is this normal?

In any event, as there are some issues with Chrome that I have seen which were resolved by a reinstall of chrome, you might try that and see if it helps.
It certainly won't hurt you know 🙂
@ Daniel................I posted in the av section of the forum for a reason. Lol. Cause I have the av only version silly. So many bugs with WSA its crazy.
You altered your taskbar notifications so you will not experience the issue. The issue is clearly a Webroot GUI clitch when set to default. Set yours to default and you will see what I mean.
1) you do NOT have the setting applied to always show WSA in the systray.
2) when you click on the 'show all' arrow to see what the current state of WSA is, you do not see the padlock.
Is this correct?
I have the setting to keep WSA visible at all times. The padlock indicates that the active window is protected. If you are on a broswer screen, and click the 'show more' arrow to see the status of WSA, the browser is no longer the active component: the systray is. The systray is NOT a protected element.
I tested this quite simply by seeing my WSA icon and padlock while viewing this thread. I clicked that 'show more' arrow to view the rest of the systray and the padlock went away as the browser was not the active element now, systray is. As soon as I clicked out of the systray, the padlock returned as the browser was again the active element.
What you are seeing is actually totally normal and the padlock working as designed.
