Blocks malware, hackers, viruses, ransomware, and malicious websites that traditional antivirus isn’t smart enough to stop.
Looking for Malwarebytes for Mac?
Malwarebytes for Windows Premium is a comprehensive cybersecurity program that crushes established and emerging threats before they can disrupt your digital lifestyle. So you can play, shop, and socialize online with peace of mind.
Detects and removes malware in real-time with advanced anti-malware, anti-spyware, and anti-rootkit technology. Scans for the newest and most dangerous threats automatically, so you’re protected without having to even think about it.
Stops unknown and known ransomware with proprietary technology that works proactively to shield your files. This is a powerful, complete defense that blocks ransomware, and not a simple decryption tool.
Detects and blocks phishing scams used to steal your identity or hack your banking account. Stops cryptojacking (malicious cryptomining) software that hackers install on your computer to “mine” for cryptocurrency (bitcoin and others) without your knowledge.
Detects and prevents contact with websites used by scammers and malicious links. You are proactively protected from downloading malware, hacking attempts, and infected advertising. Worried about wandering into a “bad” Internet neighborhood? Now you don’t have to be.
Lightning-fast Hyper Scan mode targets only the threats that are currently active. Faster analysis. Still gets results. Run a scan in the background while you download a video. It's done by the time you're ready to watch.
Play Mode suspends Malwarebytes notifications, updates, and scheduled scans when you use selected programs. It also improves gaming performance by minimizing its background processes. Stay protected while you play games, watch videos, and give presentations.
Wraps your browser and software programs in four layers of defense, stopping attacks that use vulnerabilities in those programs to infect your computer.
Download Malwarebytes for Windows for free and you get 14 days of full real-time protection. After the 14 days are up, Malwarebytes for Windows reverts to a very limited but still free version that will only disinfect your computer after an attack. We recommend the full real-time protection of Malwarebytes for Windows Premium to prevent infection in the first place.
Had a nasty malware infection, I tried everything out there and was about to give up. [Then I] tried Malwarebytes as a last resort. Reboot—problem solved! Worth every penny.
I bought the Premium...I totally recommend this. You will use it every day, and with peace of mind, no matter what other security you have on your computer.
