On Access Scanning Exclusions


Badge +1
Hello Everyone,

I have a question relating to On-Access Scanning. When folder exclusions are added for an individual machine. Do these exclusions also stop On-Access Scanning if enabled (To those same folders?).
Thank you in advance.

Hello @rusell.kent and Welcome to the Webroot Community!

WSA doesn't have a typical exclusion list as they feel it would leave a gap in security but you can go here to Allow or Block: https://docs.webroot.com/us/en/home/wsa_pc_userguide/wsa_pc_userguide.htm#ManagingQuarantine/BlockingOrAllowingFiles.htm%3FTocPath%3DManaging%2520Quarantine%7C_____2

If you please go here and post a comment and add you vote at the top left so that Webroot will consider adding an exclusion list: https://community.webroot.com/got-an-idea-29/wsa-all-versions-exclusion-of-specific-files-folders-from-scans-3300 and yes it's 6 years old.

Thanks,
