Burps Browser Sandbox error for Active Scans

Eugene | Last updated: Aug 04, 2022 03:53PM UTC

Hello - Currently running Burp Pro (v2022.8-14951) on kali 2021 as root with "Allow Burps Browser to run without sandbox" checked (project options >> Misc >> Burps Browser). This opens and works for manual testing just fine, but when running Active Scans I get a high number of the following error in the Dashboard >> Event Log: "Could not starts burps browser because you are running as root. Either switch to running as an unprived user or allow running without sandbox" I'd switch to a non-root user on the same machine, but running Burp Pro prompted for the license again. Is this ok or will it burn another license just for a non-root user? Any other ideas? Ty

Thanks for your message, Eugene. This shouldn't be a problem. If you do get a license activation warning, please email us with the email associated with the license. (support@portswigger.net).
