This solution address Webroot SecureAnywhere
The SecureAnywhere software comes with extensions that can be added to your internet browsers, depending on your package type. It is recommended that you enable any Webroot extensions presented to you to provide you with the best protection.
There are two types of extensions with SecureAnywhere:
Webroot Filtering Extension
The Webroot Filtering extension is a browser extension that protects your computer while you are online. When doing searches, it will display symbols next to your search results, called annotations, which show how safe or untrusted a site is. The annotation appears to the left of each website name in the list of query results. The table below describes the meaning of each icon.
The Webroot Filtering Extension will also stop you from going to sites that might try to infect your machine by showing a warning message.
You can then click one of the following buttons:
- Get me out of here — Click this button when you don't know the website, do not want to expose your computer to malicous links or payloads.
When you click this button, the system navigates you away from the currently blocked content to a blank page to keep you safe.
- Tell me more about it — Click this button whether you know or don't know the website, but suspect that the warning will not expose your computer to malicious links or payloads. When you click this button, the system displays additional information about the classification of the website, where you can determine your next step.
After you review information about the classification of the website, click one of the following buttons:
- Unblock page and continue — Click this button when you know the website, are comfortable with the contents, and want to visit the site. When you select this option, Webroot bypasses this URL, and will not block it again.
- I want to request a website review — Click this button when you know the website, are comfortable with the contents, but believe the classification provided by Webroot of this URL needs to be changed to make sure the warning message does not display in future. Enter any comments, your email, and select the checkbox if you would like to receive follow-up regarding your request
When you're done, click the Submit
Change requests are usually processed in 48-72 hours. If, after this period, you do not see the change you requested, you can open a ticket with Webroot Support
