Malwarebytes’ CEO Marcin Kleczynski created the first version of our virus scanner when he downloaded a free game with malware and needed to get rid of it.


Why are you exposed as a gamer?

All of the above makes your device and you vulnerable.

We know gamers’ needs better than anyone else


I created Malwarebytes in 2004 after I accidentally infected my family computer with malware after downloading a free game. I needed a program that could get rid of the infection, so with the help of some friends, I built one myself. It turned out I wasn’t the only one infected with malware, so I started giving away my program for free.
