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

Malwarebytes offers multiple layers of protection, including web protection and ransomware protection. It also offers malware and adware protection, as well as removal and detection. It also has excellent real-world protection capabilities, including results from AV Comparatives tests that consistently rank it among the top products in its class (August 2022 to October 2022).

Customers who pay for the service have access to these features in addition to many more. They can change the program’s settings by clicking on the corkscrew icon at the lower-right corner of their dashboard. The tab opens with seven sections that let you alter the program based on your preferences. These include notifications, how often and in what circumstances it is checking for updates to threat intelligence, a number of scan options, and several other visual preferences, including the theme.

The premium version has advanced features like exploit protection. This protects against attacks that make use of bugs and vulnerabilities within applications and systems. Malwarebytes can also identify and block browser lockers, block in-browser cryptojackers and block other scams that try to steal data or money from you online. It can also identify and block phishing websites. It’s not able to provide the same level of protection against identity theft as its competitors however, this could soon change since it acquired Cyrus Security.
