Webroot Privacy Report

Privacy Rating
Webroot App  - Product Header Image

Webroot’s main detractors are that only users with the Webroot SecureAnywhere plan get encryption. And although Webroot has automatic software updates and advanced authentication methods, it shares information with third parties such as the user’s IP address, browser type, and more. However, Webroot has no history of data breaches and a point of contact for reporting vulnerabilities.
