Protects your identity and privacy from hackers
Malwarebytes for Windows
Malwarebytes 4.0 is smarter, faster, and lighter than ever before. Go beyond antivirus and stop worrying about online threats.
Our free scanner is what put us on the map. It doesn’t just find threats like malware and viruses, it also finds potentially unwanted programs that can slow you down.
Real-Time Protection uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to keep you safe from online threats, even emerging threats that no one has ever seen before.
Web Protection blocks online scams, infected sites, and malicious links. It also blocks phishing scams, which use fake sites to trick you into revealing private info like your bank details.
Ransomware Protection uses proprietary tech to create a powerful defense against malware that locks down your PC and takes your files and photos hostage.
Scans now use 50 percent less CPU resources than before, and with Play Mode, you can even turn off notifications and updates while you game or watch movies.
Our all-new user interface makes it easier than ever to customize your protection. Schedule scans, adjust protection layers, and choose from three scan modes.
Our all-new detection engine finds more threats, in less time, with less performance impact than ever before. It also tells you more about threats it finds, like their type and behavior, so you can make smarter security decisions. For example, instead of seeing a generic threat name like “Malware123,” you’ll see a name like “Spyware.PasswordStealer,” along with a link to information about that specific threat.
The free version of Malwarebytes for Windows is great for getting rid of existing infections, but some infections, like ransomware, only need a moment to wreak havoc on your PC. To stop infections before they happen, stay one step ahead with the Real-Time Protection of Malwarebytes Premium.
