I just upgraded my Mac to 10.15.4, and it’s informing about legacy system extensions when Webroot started. And warned that it will not run in the next version. Wondering what Webroot will do to avoid that?

I received the same message when I upgraded to macOS Catalina 10.15.4.  Is Webroot planning on addressing this issue?

Glad I looked at Webroot Community page before attempting to update my mac to Catalina 10.15.4 . Hope Webroot is planning on addressing the above statedissue and gives us the OK to update

At the end of June, I upgraded my MAC OS to Catalina 10.15.5.   Is there any progress with getting Webroot SecureAnywhere to work on MAC laptops.  I bought my MacBook Pro laptop in November 2019.

Thanks for the many responses and help.  I’ve been so busy that I didn’t do any of the things mentions AND yesterday, miraculously, WR was updated to version that is working  wonderfully with my mac OS Catalina 10.15.4.  Not sure how this happened, but a big Thank You to the WR Fairy.

Webroot Fairy? Good one. :wink:


I am running Catalina 10.15.5 and was getting the update available button, which was not activated.  Not sure what I did, since I tried several things, and now the WR screen is back to being green, but the version that I now have is Scan is running but when I go into the Advanced Settings all fields are grayed out, and cannot be checked. 

Any suggestions, I am at a loss. 

Thanks in advance.
