    Hi,

    To what extent does WSA-E(especially it's Identity Shield) overlap with OA? Will this lead to any possible hidden conflicts?

    Best Wishes,
    Amit

    Oh just found a thing. WSA protects the browser from MITB and MITM attacks. And so does OA. I'm sure there are also other areas of overlapping.

    How does WSA cope with such overlapping to become compatible?:doubt:

    WSA avoids unhooking/removing the OA hooks so they remain compatible.

    Running both here with no problems. I listed Webroot in Online Armor exclusions . They run well together.
