Hello yukii007, Welcome to the Webroot Community Forum.
I don't believe there is an Icon for the Webfilter in Safari. I have never seen it. The only Icon in the Safari Toolbar I see is for Password Manager (Running Webroot Complete). I'm sure if you have Webfilter checked in your Extensions it is protecting you. I'll ping @, she also runs Webroot on her Mac. @

Ok, but when I activate it in safari and do a seach on google I get endless spinning icon next to the search results on the left. see attachment. When I turn it off the spinning icon is gone.   @Ssherjj, . @TechToc
