Hi Webroot Team,

 

Newbie here.

 

Can we audit device per sites if Web Threat Shield extension for Browser is enabled or disabled?

 

Also, if the Web Threat Shield extension is disabled from a device with Webroot client program, does it mean that if the User accessed a malicious site, Webroot would not block it?

 

Thank you.

Hello @jeremyv 

 

Are you a Consumer user or a Business user?

 

You would need the Extension installed and Enabled for it to block bad websites as I just did a test.

 

This is with the Extension installed and Enabled.

 

 

 

Without Extension Enabled I can go to Bad Websites!

 

So we need a bit more info from you!

 

Thanks,

Is there a way we could determine which device from a site in Webroot Management Console has not yet enable Web Threat Shield extension from its browsers? 

 Thank you again!

This is not that simple as the extension is user-specific and browser-specific.

On a device, for example, the extension might be installed for a user in Chrome and not in Edge. If multiple users are present, the extension might not be installed for all users.
