Malwarebytes has a lot to offer, however there are some issues that keep it from being the best choice for everyone. It costs more for a single-device subscription than its rivals. It’s also not as powerful in terms of features as some other competitors.

Malwarebytes provides several layers of protection, including protection against ransomware, web security, adware security, and malware and PUP (potentially unwanted programs) detection and removal. It has solid real-world security capabilities. AV Comparatives tests consistently rank it as one of the top products in its class (August 2022 – October 2022).

Paid subscribers get access to all of these features and more. Clicking on the corkscrew on the bottom right corner of the dashboard allows them to manage the software settings. This opens a tab that includes seven sections where you can alter the program to suit your needs. This includes notifications, the frequency at which it checks for threat intelligence updates, as well as a range of scan options.

The premium version is loaded with advanced features, like exploit protection. This prevents attacks that use vulnerabilities and bugs in applications and systems. Malwarebytes can also identify and block browser lockers, block in-browser Cryptojackers as well as stop other scams which try to extort data or money from users online. It also can identify and stop phishing sites. It’s unfortunate that it doesn’t have the same type of identity theft protection other competitors do however that will change soon since it recently purchased Cyrus Security, a company that provides these services.
