  • Works well for me Nov 24, 2017

    By Connie Glave
    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.

    I would prefer that it requires the device admin permission. That would make it harder to uninstall. Also, more active notifications would be reassuring. I like to see a permanent notification stating that the app is on duty. It would be better for it to protect browsers other than itself and chrome. Many people use edge, opera, etc. If the settings included more anti malware-based options-such as adjusting scan type, frequency, using back up options etc- it would be more helpful.

    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.

    I’ve used Webroot for many years and I’ve always been satisfied with it. I’ve used the old secure web app for iOS specifically for the security filters that are involved with search engines, like google, to see what websites are safe before I go to those sites. For the new Webroot app, since it now has features that are compatible with Safari, I have some questions... 1. Do these features include the security filters on search engines, like google, on the safari app just like the old secure web app did? 2. Do these features include any type of ad blockers? 3. Do these features require a Webroot account in order to use these features?

    I have had Webroot for 3 years and it works great on my iMac, iPhone, and iPad. I don’t know what these other people are complaining about? They must not have downloaded it properly. I followed the instructions and didn’t have any problems. They might wanna go back and read the instructions again and see if it’ll work for them.

    The Webroot app will not allow me to enter my email address, so I cannot log in and use it. I can log into my account using a laptop computer, so I know the account works.

  • I have liked them for my laptops Jul 24, 2015

    By Iam1ru123
    But holy cow!!! My iPhone!!?!! Forget about it!! I don't know how they can be such a wreck with this when they are relatively efficient, and I have felt very protected on my laptops and desktops for a couple of years now. It's crazy! Even the phone app is a mess to try and figure out how to add a phone to your account. I'm quitting until they make the obvious needed changes. The other reviews I read are an indication that this nightmare will only continue if I could ever actually get my phone added to my account anyway. I wasted enough time just trying to do that. Jeeez Webroot. Don't even offer a service that is such a mess until you get it right man, you're gonna screw up the polished reputation you spent a good deal of time creating with computers. Don't add phones and iPads until you're ready. I'm now so frustrated I feel like k don't want to renew with you which is coming up shortly, and until now I often recommended you!
  • Misinformation Sep 10, 2018

    By Aapl6506
    I have a subscription for computers. My expectation was to cover two computers, two and iPads, and one phone. When I went to their website for instructions, they said to download this app. Unfortunately, it does not work with Safari or other browsers to protect my phone. It is a separate browser that attempts to be more secure. That may work OK, but is not what I signed up for. Also, the instructions did not make that clear, so I was trying to get it to work with my phone and had to call support for an explanation. Apparently, you can use the app for free, so I have no need for any more than two subscriptions. I will see if I can get my subscription reduced. Yes I wanted to use their browser, I did not see any ability to transfer my bookmarks, so I would have to start all over with those. Not acceptable.
  • At least it’s free Nov 3, 2018

    By bench1960
    Purchased secure anywhere to work primarily as a second to the free antivirus available from provider using Firefox. Have had for about 6 years. Last year they couldn’t keep up with changes to Firefox and now the password manager will not work with it. Their solution... use another platform. Better to get another antivirus program. Now the app doesn’t really work on Apple products as admired by Josh. Nice guy though. But doesn’t help the problem. They should have a warning. Finally, about 2 weeks ago I was having issue with the mobile version. I uninstalled and reinstalled it but when it came up it was the Google sign on. The app shows up on my phone and the password manager “seems” to work but I constantly get a huge error message that starts: “Results not properly formatted JASON:”. Then a crap load of hypertext. No idea if it’s working properly or if it just doesn’t work at all on I phone. But hey. It’s free.
  • Not good Jul 30, 2020

    By melijow
    I downloaded this because it appeared to be compatible with my iPhone. However it connected to a tablet on the other side of the house (that not one uses) while I was trying to connect through the iPhone the app was on... now I only see information for anroid. It looks like I’m in google when I open the app. In that case why need an app? We could just log in through safari. I’m not sure if we root is working out for my Apple needs. My Mac computer has been scanned three times yet my account said I had no devices when I logged in with this app? and I paid for the webroot for Mac. Wtheck?!
  • Not as good as trendmicro Sep 13, 2014

    By Not a good service
    So I just bought an iPad and the salesman said that webroot was the best. I purchased it, as he seemed to think it was better than trendmicro. I have had a MacBook for two years now and trendmicro has been awesome protection and minimal hassle. I tried for two weeks to make webroot work. It would not even let me set up an account or send a confirmation email. So I gave up and looked up trendmicro in the app store. I was able to download and renew my subscription in less than ten minutes. Trendmicro protects IPad from malicious apps,websites, and even problems on Facebook. If you want good protection go with trendmicro. It is the best!
  • NOT worth it. Mar 9, 2019

    By dixianna
    I purchased a new Ipad and this Webroot was offered as a freebie for a couple of months, so I accepted it. I can’t see how it works as an antivirus. All I can make out of it is that it’s a browser, and there is no protection unless you use that browser only. I don't want to use that browser. I have used Safari for ten years and my ipad is set up for that. I have Webroot on my laptop and it works well there, (no special browser to use). This version is totally useless. I will NOT continue it after my trial is up. I do NOT recommend.
  • Disappointed - Slow & constantly resets Mar 8, 2013

    By Scuba4fun
    It sounded good when I downloaded it. I replaced Safari with it on my iPhone5. Not only is the browser slower, the response time is, too. When trying to select areas in the browser, it's slow response caused it to select an area on a page I didn't intend to. About every 3rd or 4th page, it resets and forces you to log back in. I deleted it & reinstated Safari in < 1 day. As another reviewer indicated, of course it's secure - it won't let you stay logged in long enough not to be.

    A very quick and clean browser. I haven't experienced any crashing issues as mentioned by other users - those look to be older version comments. I've used Webroot for years on my pc's and am glad to see an offering by them on my iPad. It took a minute to figure out the navigation thru multiple windows but once I did really liked the quick switching and ability to see my other tabs.

  • it works! Sep 2, 2012

    By Geo1783
    But, the procedure to get it operable is uncanny, slightly ajar. I've got the full applicationon my PC where it is very easy to use. On my iPad II, it uses a blanked-out browser and the 'favorite' pages are gone - forcing you to start listing all of those websites. So, that's what I did. Takes more time, but it DID NOT crash, freeze up, or otherwise fail. Does it work, i.e. stop malware and all the rest? Don't really know and I'm no tester. I do know I feel protected on my PC, however. HINT: go to Webroot webste FIRST. Then follow the diections.
  • Trusted sites Nov 14, 2019

    By Lwc1973
    Be mindful if your iPad or iPhone crashes all the time. Somehow a website added itself to my trusted site list and I was unaware. I am really unsure of the damage or what they had control of like my camera or microphone. There was one added to my iPad and another to my iPhone. Two different web sites.. Please watch that and uninstall and reinstall to get rid of the scammers. I don’t trust this all the time but I don’t trust safari either.
  • Still needs work Feb 3, 2013

    By PW in Atlanta
    This app has some nice features, but they don't all work. I found this browser to be very fast in loading pages, (much faster than Safari,) but the tabs don't work, and the browser hangs frequently. At one point, I had to uninstall and reinstall the software to clear the hang. I'm using the latest iOS on an iPad 4. If the bugs get fixed, I think the browser would be a "5" because of its speed alone.
