Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete 2014

Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete is a premium security suite that scans exceptionally fast. This suite will not monopolize your computer's resources. It runs light and fast. It comes with excellent premium features such as 30GB of free online storage, mobile device protection, privacy tools and a password manager. It can protect your PC using a suggested configuration or you can customize the software to run the way you desire. It protects from keyloggers, phishing scams, rootkits and suspicious-looking applications. This suite also includes security for Android and iOS devices. One license of Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete can be used to protect up to three PCs and three tablets or mobile phones.

In terms of performance, AV-Test published results that demonstrate Webroot is excellent at repairing infected PCs, slightly below average in terms of usability and lacking in terms of its ability to protect against known and brand new malware.

Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete is truly a premium suite. It includes systems tools, automatic backup, a registry cleaner, a password manager and a file shredder. Webroot provides a 30GB of online storage (10GB per user). Files and passwords can be synchronized across PCs and mobile devices. The password manager is an extremely helpful tool. It can save complex passwords for you and enter them into websites automatically. This increases your security since it can save complex, more secure passwords for you and it can bypass phishing scams by only logging you into legitimate sites.

Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete does not include parental controls. However, if only adults use your computers and devices, this suite is fine. The standard features it includes are customized scan scheduling, automatic updates, safe browsing and application control. Though the scans run quite fast, you can schedule them to delay when your laptop battery is low or you are in full screen mode. The scans can also be configured to run stealthily without pop-ups or progress bars.

Webroot provides excellent support options. If you need customer or technical assistance you can contact them by email, telephone or instant chat. They also post volumes of useful information online such as user guides, FAQs, instructional videos, tutorials and billing information. We found the software simple to use and did not have to consult the help files.


Webroot's suite is a great value. One subscription can protect three PCs and three devices. With this suite you can automatically back up your music, photographs, video and documents. Webroot Secure Anywhere Complete comes with responsive, free customer support. It sports quite a few useful features such as a password manager and a file shredder. For what it's worth, it does not have parental controls.
