Bought by cloud storage giant Carbonite in March 2019, Webroot has been in the antispyware and antivirus businesses since the early 21st century.
Webroot’s software sadly isn’t as widespread as that of many rival anti-malware suites, which not only limits the number of test results we have available to inform our verdict, but also means that you’re not as likely to find cheap retail editions, although there are a few knocking around eBay.
If you want extra features, SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus adds a password manager – actually a LastPass subscription – and covers three devices for £37.49, while Internet Security Complete provides 25GB of online backup storage for a current price of £48.79. You can also integrate their VPN Webroot Wifi Security.
