Ratings and Reviews
I won't debate Webroot's security claims for its Mobile Security browser. I'm not sufficiently geeky for that. Apparently, what I have downloaded is a Google Chrome browser with at least one modification, that being, it is claimed, the ability to integrate with the Safari browser and somehow enhance that browser's security.
My complaint is with something that wasn't modified. Webroot's browser comes with some some preloaded favorites--bookmarks on the home screen--that are easily removed. Fine. Here's the problem: You can't put your own bookmarks there; no, you have to make sure a tab is open, click on the three little dots, and select 'Bookmarks' from the menu (by the way, if you can't find various things, it might be because the menu scrolls, so some of it is hidden, by default).
In my case, if I can't make Startpage the default search engine, then I like to have it on the browser home screen. Now, Webroot's browser does have the option of choosing Duck Duck Go, which I did, but I've read that Startpage not only has Duck Duck Go's privacy advantages, it's a much greener choice, because the hardware that provides it uses much less energy than Duck Duck Go's. Too bad I can neither access it though the address/search bar nor via a home screen favorite.
Works well for me
It installed fine on both my iPhone and my iPad. I have Webroot on my desktop and was glad to have a product to use when I am at a WiFi hotspot. You don't have to buy Webroot or have a Webroot account to use this app. You would only need a password if you want to use the Webroot Backup and Sync for IOS app too, which I didn't, so not being able to sign in was not an issue for me. The first day I chose the wrong link while tapping the small type on my phone. I got a warning about the site, so it did work.
Best antivirus, Works on safari, I have used for 15 years
For those of you who didn’t read the instructions, IPhones go to settings, safari, content blocker, turn on Webroot for safari.
For my personal and business high end PC’s, MacBook Pro, and iPhones, 15 years of using Webroot. Never have had a virus, ransomware or hacker on my equipment. Using this app and the WiFi security on my family’s IPhone XR’s. I purchased 3 years of Webroot service because they have always protected my equipment, identity and have exceeded my expectations.
