  • How does Privacy differ from Malwarebytes Premium?

    Malwarebytes Premium replaces antivirus and provides protection on your device against viruses, ransomware and other forms of malware. It can also clean an already infected device. However, it cannot secure your connection on a public WiFi or protect your privacy when you are on a website that is actively collecting your personal data, IP address and geo-location. This is where Malwarebytes Privacy comes in – to protect your connection to the Internet and act as a digital middleman so that hackers and snoops cannot invade your privacy.

    You can add Malwarebytes Privacy and your subscription length won’t extend. You’ll simply pay the difference for the remaining time on your subscription.
