I downloaded the free app from the applestore... as soon as I access it, It asks for login name and password.... but I can not find how or where do I create one.... I went through the help and instructions...still can not find anywhere, how do I register, so that I can creat a login name and password....
I appreciate the free app..... only would love to be a bet more clear... I have not gone any farther than that....bc I have no idea how to log in

Sorry about the partial answer previously.
Officially the Webroot Sync app for the iOS is an extension of a Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete subscription.  Users who do not have SecureAnywhere Complete will not be able to use the app at all.  It's kind of like the way there is a Chase bank app, but you can't use that app without a Chase bank account.
Interesting though, since the iOS apps work slightly differently, it's potentially possible the App may work with a SecureAnywhere Essentials account, but it is not a supported functionality.
In either case, you would ned to have SecureAnywhere installed on your PC and create your account on the PC at before it can be logged into on the app.
As a minor note:  If  you are currently using Webroot Internet Security Essentials, then you should definitely update to SecureAnywhere Essentials.  We provide security as a service, so you don't buy the program, you buy the year of service and we upgrade the program that runs on your machine for free and regularly.  The newest free upgrade is to SecureAnywhere specifically, so anybody ho has the older version can get the newest and better version for free.
