At this time you have made your complaint known, and I will make sure that Webroot staffers see it, but you are also very close to violating Community Guidelines as follows:
Don’t Kill the Mood.
If you are joining the Webroot Community only to defile it, please move on. Or, if you witness someone attacking the company maliciously, Webroot kindly asks that you report the person so that Webroot can restore the Community balance (i.e. kick them out).
I understand you have an issue, and we will make sure that a Webroot staffer sees this and reaches out to you, and listsens to any comments you have as well as helps resolve any issues you have with the product itself, but at this time I would suggest that you refrain from futher comments defiling Webroot and the Products. You have made your point, but let's keep the Community Atmosphere positive shall we?
Webroot staffers will be online possibly later today, and certainly tomorrow.
What problem are you currently having for which you need Support? Many times we can help resolve issues right here.
There is never any pressure for you to renew in any particular way, and there is the opt-out service also : http://www.webroot.com/customerSupport/auto_renewal_optout.php
Benefits of Uninterrupted Protection?
Just to add to the good advice and info you've been given, I feel one must clearly understand the reasons why a vendor will charge more for the convenience which the Auto-Renewal brings, which some customers find ideal. and would prefer to have, in case they forget about renewal etc. They are not too worrief if it's more expensive that way, and don't have the time or inclination to go looking for 'special offers'.
I would prefer to seek out a good discount myself, but many couldn't be bothered etc.
Most large Security Software Companies offer comparably slightly higher-priced renewals.
Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks.
My post was simply my own emphasis to what you posted 🙂 That is why it is so short, just emphasizing a few of your points.
EDIT: If my previous post is taken as a bit rude, my apologies it is not meant to be. I merely had not yet had my morning coffee and so was just being quick and to the point 🙂
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Just to clarify...you do not need to renew via Webroot if you do not want to. You are perfectly at liberty to go elsewhere and purchase a new license at a lower than official renwal price is you want to...it is a free market so Webroot can charge what they feel is approrpiate and yo can chose to accept or not.
That said a number of users do take that path and I know it has been fed back to Webroot via our Community Manager
So, if you do decide to go for a new keycode at a lower price you can just enter it into the appropriate place in the software to activate it and as a Webroot subscriber (rather than a Best Buy subscriber) it should take it and commence using the new keycode...BUT a few snippets of advice, if I may:
1. Steer clear of offers on ebay, and check that any on Amazon are sold by Amazon and not a reseller (not saying resellers are not trust worthy it is just that some are not in my experience).
2. You are posting in the Complete forum so you may well be using either or both of the Password Manager and/or Backup & Sync features? If you are then please be aware that the data held in the Cloud related to those is linked to your keycode and so if you use a new keycode (a) you will not have access to that data anymore & (b) it gets deleted after 30 days post expiry of the keycode it is linked to.
3. So to deal with 2. above you have two options:
i. Use the new keycode and Open a Support Ticket requesting Support to transfer the data from old keycode to new one...remember to provide both keycodes & email address when doing that, OR
ii. continue using the current keycode and again open a Support Ticket but this time ask Support to transfer the time on the new keycode to the old/current one...if and when yo do this with time remaining on the old keycode the new will be added to it and yo will have the number of days = old subscription balance + new subscription, going forward.
Well, I hope that clarifies the position a bit and calms what appear to be ruffled feathers? No one, least of all Webroot is trying to rip you off...if they where they would not allow what I have advised above. Persoanlly I always renew my commerical license via Webroot...true you can get some ridiculously cheap deal in places but do ask yourself before buying...is this too good to be true/what's the catch.
Anyway, hope that yo sort it out and that we see yo around in the Community in the future.
