Kick hackers to the curb

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.

What it does for you

Protects you from emerging threats

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.

Protects your files from being locked and held for ransom

Stops unknown and known ransomware with proprietary technology that works proactively to shield your files. This is a powerful, complete defense that blocks ransomware, not a simple decryption tool.

Crushes the latest scams

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.

Protects you from fake and infected websites

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.

Scans faster, scans smarter

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.

Keeps you in the game

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. Learn more.
