FAQ

Free antivirus can be a good starting point to protect your devices. Malwarebytes offers free versions to scan and clean viruses and malware from your devices.

Malwarebytes security software has multiple layers of malware-crushing tech, including virus protection. Traditional antivirus alone is no longer sufficient against today’s sophisticated malware threats. Malwarebytes prevents threats in real-time, crushes ransomware, defends against harmful sites, and cleans and removes malware. Go beyond antivirus and stop worrying about online threats.

Traditional antivirus examines file signatures and compares them to a list of known viruses. While this is still a component of today’s malware protection, devices now need additional protection to detect all types of malware threats, not just viruses.
