Managing Identity Protection

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 You have arrived at an outdated topic.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

Identity Protection protects you from identity theft and financial loss. It ensures that your sensitive data is protected, while safe-guarding you from keyloggers, screen-grabbers, phishing schemes, and other information-stealing techniques.

Follow this procedure to do either of the following:

  • View Identity Protection Status
  • Disable Identity Protection

To manage identity protection:

  1. From the system tray, double-click the Webroot gear icon.

    The main interface displays.


  2. Click the Identity Protection gear.

    The Online Protection pane displays.

    Identity Protection consists of two shields:
    • Identity shield
    • Phishing shield.
    The green buttons indicate the shields are on. We recommend that you keep them enabled; however, you can disable them by clicking the green button. You may be prompted to type characters into a CAPTCHA window to confirm you are a real user.
