  1. Unfortunately no, there is no way to do this. We will keep it in mind for future development, of course!
  2. Thank you for your feedback, Raynor. We do pay attention to suggestions, and we may consider yours for future development. Have a great day!
  3. For anyone finding this thread while searching for resolution to their own issue, what worked (and the first thing tried) is to uninstall Emsisoft Anti-Malware, restart the computer, then install fresh.
  4. Hello Robert, I can see that you have an open support ticket in progress, and we'll do our best to take care of you there. Jeremy, it likely is an Emsisoft Anti-Malware message that can happen for a few potential reasons, but more commonly because our service has been disabled such as by a remote technician for testing who forgets to re-enable it. Not the only potential reason of course, just a common one.
  5. Hello brihy1, Rather than an app provided by us, what we mean by using "apps for Android and iOS" is web browser apps. We don't have an app specifically for mobiles for accessing the MyEmsisoft website or to use Emsisoft Cloud Console, but do have mobile optimizations present that should make visiting the site using a mobile relatively comfortable. Emsisoft Mobile Security cannot be added to Emsisoft Cloud Console, as it is controlled via completely separate servers accessed by logging into central.emsisoft.com using that device's assigned Google account. We may consider it for future development of course.
  6. I'm sorry I let the response slip through the cracks! We do not install a certificate for web protection. We make use of the accessibility permission setting in Android, which is why Emsisoft Mobile Security asks for permissions during initial install, to check website addresses as you access them. The application is entirely cloud based, with no antimalware signatures or lists of URLs stored locally. The URLs are sent to be checked, but are not stored unless deemed malicious. URLs found as malicious are stored only for the purpose of displaying them in your central.emsisoft.com account notifications, and they are deleted if you delete the notifications. Let me know if you have other questions!
  7. Hello KaiFrost, While I can say we don't collect or store surfing habit information at Emsisoft, I'd like to get better answers to your questions. I'll reply again soon, when I have them.
  8. Android itself is made by Google, so it may be a bit difficult to find Google alternatives while using an Android phone. Still, I understand that some don't want to have a Google account at all. I've replied to your other post as well so you can pursue a refund.
  9. The same answer Fabian gave years ago still applies, though I realize that isn't suitable for some. Please email [email protected] if you'd like to pursue refund for Emsisoft Mobile Security within our 30 day refund window.
  10. Hallo Oli, Ich benutze Google Translate und meine Muttersprache ist Englisch. Möglicherweise wurde der vorläufige Termin für das Ende des Windows 7-Supports für 2021 verpasst. Wir werden es dann neu bewerten und wenn es möglich ist, die Unterstützung für Windows 7 zu erweitern, werden wir es tun. Andere Antiviren-Unternehmen verwenden ein Datum von 2022, enthalten jedoch Formulierungen, mit denen sie den Support vorzeitig beenden können. Wir haben diesen Wortlaut nicht aufgenommen und sie zu gleichwertigen Aussagen gemacht. Stapp, Claude, bitte kläre, ob mein Wortlaut verwirrend ist. Google.
  11. Well, we can't have you feeling like that! Let us know if you have any other problems we can help with.
  12. Thanks for updating rustyDusty, and for helping, JeremyNicoll.For anyone else reviewing this, the exclusion is made like this: Open Emsisoft Anti-Malware, click "Settings" then the "Exclusions" tab. Click 'add folder' in the exclude from monitoring section, navigate to the target folder "C:\Program Files\MPC-HC\" (or other location if you did not install it there), and click OK. Note: Exclusions only apply to programs started after the exclusion is made. To be effective, you may need to restart the process or program, or restart the computer, depending on the program being excluded. In this case, a reboot is recommended.
  13. Yes, it will attempt to reconnect at its next scheduled update usually. Thank you for letting me know it's working!
  14. Hello DuroTech We've just updated Emsisoft Mobile Security, and in some cases it is detaching from the subscription in the process. This should fix it: Open Emsisoft Mobile Security. Tap the pyramid of three dots in the bottom right corner. Tap your device's Google account name at the top of the menu. Tap logout. Wait 10 seconds. Tap login. Is it working again? If yes, there should be nothing else to do. If not, please let us know.
  15. Hello Aggy, I've sent you a private message with a possible solution. Let me know if you have questions!
  16. Hello Mark, 2FA can be done in more than one way - email for example, which you should be able to access from another device. In a situation where you'd need to wipe the phone, the carrier responsible for your phone number usually will issue a new SIM card and deactivate the old one so you can also receive text 2FA messages as needed. Extra hurdles involved, but that's the nature of the extra security brought by 2FA in the first place.
  17. Quite alright, and I'm glad you found the culprit. If you have any other active antivirus software on these computers, I would start there where conflict is concerned. You're also welcome to email as I'd mentioned before, so we can gather logs to see if there's something we recognise that can conflict.
  18. Isn't LabTech an automation / MSP / RMM software? It may be configured to install Emsisoft Anti-Malware if it is not detected at computer boot time. I'd check to see if perhaps it has been enabled in LabTech settings, as that would definitely explain it. The only instances of Emsisoft Anti-Malware being installed in the manner you're referring to that I'm aware of are all due to MSP type software. If that's not it, we should probably switch to email so we can gather some endpoint logs and see where it might be coming from, with a bit of research.
  19. Hello MartinB, All active antivirus can potentially fight with other active antivirus, and Emsisoft Anti-Malware is no exception. Often it will run alongside others with no trouble, but sometimes it cannot. Again though, that applies to all active antivirus products. Do you have software such as Repairtech's Syncro or Kabuto on any of these computers? Those are MSP (managed service provider) programs that can and often are configured to install and maintain software such as ours. Those two in specific are often used for Emsisoft Anti-Malware installation and maintenance. If for example you'd signed up for remote management service, that could have come as part of the package. Without knowing more of the situation, I can only make guesses such as that one. Emsisoft Anti-Malware has never to my knowledge been 'maliciously' installed. I'm not sure what the point would be, since it is designed to be cleanly uninstalled, has a free trial, and is designed to fight malware rather than be malware. If it keeps reinstalling itself though, that is a hallmark of MSP software activity. If you'd like, email me at [email protected], and I can help you dig a bit without risking sensitive information from any of the computers is posted on the public forum.
  20. It's our pleasure, Mark. Have a great weekend!
  21. Thank you, Mark. That's good to hear! I've read your support email thread, and it's being taken care of. We'll contact you there, since any sort of transaction details or keys would not be able to be shared via the forums anyway. Have a great day!
  22. Mark, No need to mail in again. We can take care of you there. Thank you for letting me know!
  23. Hello Mark, You're right, that doesn't seem right to me, either. Would you email us at [email protected] please, from the email address you use to log into MyEmsisoft? It is far easier for me to verify ownership and track down information to rectify the situation that way, and also faster for me to respond.
  24. Hello SteelWheel, I've sent you a private message with a possible solution. Let me know if you have questions!
  25. Thanks for confirming. If there's anything more our ransomware experts can provide or need in your situation, they'll post here. Good luck!
