Managing Ignored Threats

Hello. You have arrived at an outdated topic. Please click this link to be redirected to the updated Mobile Security for Android User Guide.

If you restored a threat from quarantine or chose to ignore it, SecureAnywhere Mobile adds the item to its Ignored Threats list. This list prevents SecureAnywhere Mobile from repeatedly detecting the same item in future scans. If you decide later that you want this item to be detected again, you can remove it from this list.

Note: WSA Internet Security Plus includes all features except Backup and Sync. For a comparison of products, see our product comparison for consumer products.

To manage an ignored threat:

  1. From the main SecureAnywhere Mobile panel, tap Security at the bottom.
  2. Tap Antivirus.
  3. Tap More at the bottom.
  4. Tap Ignored Threats.
  5. From the Ignored Threats panel, do either of the following:
    • To ignore just one threat, tap the threat name until another panel opens that gives you the option for removing the threat from the list.
    • To ignore all threats in this panel, press the Menu button for your mobile device, then tap Clear Ignore List.
