SecureAnywhere Mobile contains active protection features called shields, which immediately alert you if they detect a potential threat or vulnerability.

Use the following procedure to change shield settings.

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 change shield settings:

  1. From the main SecureAnywhere Mobile panel, tap Security from the bottom.
  2. Tap Antivirus.
  3. Tap Shields at the bottom.
  4. To turn a shield on or off, tap the checkbox for the shield option.
    • A green checkmark indicates the setting is on.
    • A greyed-out checkmark indicates the setting is off.
    When you disable shield settings, SecureAnywhere Mobile displays a yellow warning. For more information, see About Shields.
