21 Oct Malwarebytes Web Protection Review
Malwarebytes has a lot going for it, but there are still some problems that prevent it from being the ideal choice for everyone. For one, it charges more than many of its competitors for one device subscription. It’s also not as robust in terms of features than other models.
Malwarebytes comes with several layers of protection, including protection against ransomware on the internet Adware protection, malware and PUP (potentially unwanted programs) detection and removal. It is a solid security product with real-world capabilities. AV Comparatives tests consistently identify it as one of the top products in its field (August 2022 – October 2022).
Customers who pay for the service will have access to these features and numerous others. By clicking on the corkscrew located in the lower right-hand corner of the dashboard lets them manage the settings for the software. This opens a tab that has seven sections where you can alter the program to suit your requirements. This includes notifications, how often it checks for threats intelligence updates, and several scan options.
The premium version is loaded with advanced features, such as exploit protection. This prevents attacks that exploit weaknesses and bugs within applications and systems. Malwarebytes can also identify and block browser lockers, stop in-browser cryptojackers and block other scams which try to steal your data or money from your account online. It also can identify and block phishing sites. It’s not able to provide the same level of protection against identity theft as its competitors, but this should soon change since it acquired Cyrus Security.
