Reviews From google play store

I hate to have to give this program a poor rating after many years of using it on desktop, but it is a poor application. Intrusive, sends lots of data about your device and files back to their servers. Constantly blasts my phone with notifications. It doesn't want to scan properly: it runs but never finishes, then blasts me with offers about other products and services it wants me to buy. I'm definitely taking a second look at their desktop product, as well. May be time to move on. Unfortunately

I wish there was more than five star rating. My phone kept popping up ads whenever i unlocked my phone. I had a hard time trying to find what was the issue. This app just found the malware in just five minutes and the pop up is gone. I just installed it few hours back so I do not know what this app can do, can't wait to find out It's an amazing app i recommend you all to use this app if you have any issues about add popping up on your phone Thank so much for this app👍👍👍

Kaspersky scan failed to discover what Malwarebytes did. I had random websites popping up in my Chrome browser. The app responsible was Peel. Malwarebytes identified the problem and removed it. TBH, I don't even remember installing Peel. But it's gone now. Thanks Malwarebytes. You have protected my computer for years and now my phone. You're the best.

Update - the latest version for Android is 3.7.2. This, AFAIK is not documented anywhere. Keep this in mind when purchasing. Just to be fair, the Windows upgrade went very smoothly. Taking two stars for wasted time. I have just spent the last four hours trying to install V4 on my Android (Marshmallow). I bought a 2-year license for Windows and Android. Windows was no problem, but the Android upgrade was a complete mess. I must have logged in about 20 times, was redirected to 404 pages, got offered a purchase *again!* and generally gained nothing but frustration. If you aren't ready for Android see above) then don't offer it and certainly don't ask customers to buy it. Your software used to be so easy to use; now it's a nightmare.

I bought the one year subscription today. And afterwards, I followed the directions to upgrade to protection for two devices. Nothing. All I get is messages saying it can't reach the site, x30 Guys...seriously? I have researched and tried out your free version for a year. But yours were not th only software I tried out. I paid an extraordinary amount of money for an product that tells me iobit`s advance system care is unwanted. And STILL I cannot register my premium services!!!!

After trying other malware detectors I installed this one, only slightly hopeful afterall the others went from meh to nil. Once it's finished downloading it gets busy and finds problems the "others" just skipped over. FYI, these trials were all the same day. So far I am extremely pleased. I will post again as i use this more but right out of the gate it gets ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The app was excellent and did a great job on both my mobile device and my laptop's. However when I went to Norton 360 It took them remotely, 2 days and 6 hours to deeproot clean my computers and mobile devices a programs such as malware bytes which was a paid subscription. I was very disappointed to lose it as I was satisfied with malwarebytes. But unfortunately the 2 programs conflicted and Norton 360 would not run the VPN… If you do not have Norton 360, I highly recommend Malwarebytes.

I also have Android marshmallow and I have been happy but only recently found out that it will not upgrade to 4.0 like it does in the windows. So I will keep it for that and find something else for mobile when subscription runs out in March. But they're very responsive and try to help.

Malwarebytes didn't find my issue, which may not be within the app scope, so I decided to contact support and started a live chat at 5th in queue with 21min wait. After 1hour and 20min and my patience wearing thin I got through to someone who stated they were there to help. I started explaining but got no response, and after a while the support person just ended the chat. In my opinion this is no way to treat customers or gain new ones. Hope this helps.

Whenever I'm having a Tough time figuring out what is wrong with my phone, for some reason malwarebytes always sets things straight while i go back to watching videos, it does a great job at finding the problem and thus i recommend it to anyone who's extremely stressed over Fake ads or some sort of breach on their phone

I need help as every time I run a scan the scan bar is backtracking over the scan it just scanned itself like this doesn't seem right and I honestly thought there would be more security options after upgrading to full version as we have been having some very weird things going on that is way we upgraded to full version it is working great but as I see it there is something weird happening still with services like even provider are up to no good as far as we are concerned with even them

Thank you. Did the job great. I have my phone back. It's a fantastic app. Thank you once again. I would give this app. 10 stars if I could. It found a few issues with my phone. Solved everyone. Love this app. I always scan my phone now. It keeps my phone safe. Thank you once again. Keep up your great work. Thank you.

I used the free service for several years with great success. Now with phones, tablets, pc, etc I upgraded to the paid service. It is worth the piece of mind to have real time malware protection. It has saved my equipment many times. Well worth the money.

It is very slow. It makes my phone slow and glichy. I downloaded it because I was running outta room and I thought this would help me clear up some space. It just made everything super slow and I deleted the app and then everything went back to normal and it was all just very odd. I dont like being mean, but I wouldn't get this app.

No problem with the app. But it seems to be more focused on selling you on the premium version than anything else. It would be nice to just drop the basic version and offer only one. Very frustrating to constantly have pushing the premium front and center.

My first whatsapp message take atleast 15 sec to get sent every time I open whatsapp....your real time protection is making whatsapp and webpages slow to send and load. I agree that it's good but its a little embarrassing near my friends on a fast phone like the s9+ to load apps, webpages or even sending messages so slow. It's the same on your Desktop application too on a fast laptop like the HP Omen.

It's awesome but are you guys gonna give the Android app a big upgrade there are things that could be improved faster like one when scan your device it's slow and I think it's high time you guys make a new UI faster malware scanning and quit making the app all premium stuff to get the most protection if you want to be better than it needs to be done in a better way right I find alot of antivirus for Android don't release update for there apps more frequently

There is very limited information on malware that it thinks it finds. You cannot click to find any more information on anything it finds and you only have one option to uninstall the app that contains it. I definitely would expect more for such an expensive application.

Better than the limited protection give by Google. I have used this app for years and never had a problem. Now without beta call protection not sure if I should keep using any android phone...sic It's time android allow users to have their anti-virus/malware give call protection from the scam calls that are finding their way through android's protection. Blocking scam numbers makes no difference. They just use another number to send the scam message.

I have never bought a premium antivirus subscription until now. Very pleased with this app, and I hope they continue to add more features. One suggestion I would add is a customizable restrictive firewall similar to what I use now 'NoRoot Firewall' as a premium feature. I would quite honestly pay extra if it were comprehensive enough.

Been using the PC version for years, just like a lot of other reviewers have said. It's easy to use and has a clean interface. I don't know why i never checked for a mobile version before, but I'm definitely putting it on every device from here on out. Keep doing good against all these sneaky and malicious coders out there Malwarebytes team!

I had the free version amd it worked really well, but the updates for the software daily (or more frequent) being manual got old. Also, the free version doesn't run in the background to protect from things between the manual scans. The paid version is worth its weight in gold! I've been using Malwarebytes on home computers and laptops for years, and they don't disappoint. Much more complete than Kapersky, McAfee, Norton/Symantec, or any others I have tried. Great app!

This app is incredible. Had a problem with full screen pop up ads and I spent hours upon hours trying different things to remove them. I paid for several other apps to solve the problem and nothing worked. I was just about to factory reset my phone when I stumbled upon this app. It solved my incredibly frustrating problem in less than 5 minutes by detecting the hidden adware and removing it. Thank you!

I was having the most annoying ad popup, I knew it was malware picked up off the web on my Note 9. I downloaded a bunch of free trials nothing was found. This app was the second to last one i tried it not only got ride of the add and malware, it found 3!! GREAT APP!!

Consider this review a 4.8. I have been a customer of MB for many years, and definitely trust them. However, I have a couple of small issues. Mainly, I am facing a bug where the app is not recognizing Google Play Protect as being on. Also, permanently having the logo in my notification bar is slightly annoying

22 minutes for a scan on a phone?????? And STILL didn't install update files??? Then took 10 more minutes to install update, app decided to scan again, another 20 minutes. 52 minutes this app just held my device hostage. My internet connection is fine, this app isn't.

Great antivirus I love it i have used avast, ag, macafee and Malwarebytes is better none of those caught maleware like Malwarebytes the only one that comes close is Panda antivirus it is another good one it will catch things that AG McAfee and avast don't sorry if you don't download panda make sure you get Malwarebytes because it catches all of them there is only one or two that Panda misses that Malwarebytes gets so if you want the best make sure you get Malwarebytes

Edit: ive already used this on my pc and after using the app just once, i no longer get pop up ads and all the viruses and malware appear to be gone from my phone. I thought I'd leave a more detailed review. 100% working, no strings attatched and easy to use. What more could you ask from an app. Its probably one of the only apps ive ever had that i will be paying for when the trial expires.

I know this may be a stupid reason. But it's just such a lazy programming issue.. Why can't I press the "update database" button and have it respond with a thing.. Anything for that matter. It just stares back at you like it's gone stupid. Then after several moment it's like "oh no I was working, I just didn't want to tell you". Give me some feedback when I do something within the app.

I use Malwarebytes on my laptop and have found it to be excellent and I must say it is the same for my mobile. Runs so smoothly and gives peace of mind. Thank you Malwarebytes for keeping me safe on phone and laptop, keep up with your excellent work 5* Best regards Peter 👍😀👍

I was having major issues with an ad virus that I couldn't find through manual seaching and my previous app didn't help. I started to think about restarting my phone, but then I stumbled upon this app and it worked. It's a life saver and I decided to give it 5 stars (I don't usually review.)

I love their desktop app so I added this for my phone. It works great but I will say one really annoying thing is the way you update your databases. You click a button and there's no feedback as to is it downloading, how long will it take, it just sits there like you did nothing. A loading bar or at least SOME form of feedback would be nice...

I use Malwarebytes on my laptop so thought I'd do the same for my phone. Occasional manual scans blitz through the phone in no time and I've had no malware problems. I feel safe that my phone won't get hijacked on the next incautious click (I use the paid version)!

Malwarebytes is awesome. I've been using 'em for years in all my Samsung phones & they've never let me down. They won't tell me I have some non-existent issue like the cheap imitators either, just to try to sell me something I don't need. They alert me when there's an issue, they fix it fast, & luckily, I've never had a an issue so bad that they couldn't immediately take care of. Its definitely worth every penny to me considering the alternative, & I highly recommend them to everyone!

I've been using Malwarebytes for over 10 years now, starting back on Windows XP. It is consistently the only program that effectively seeks out ALL the viruses and destroys them. In my most recent example, I downloaded FOUR different 4.7+ star antivirus apps to attempt to clear away the malware present on my phone. After all 4 had scanned and "successfully removed" the malware, it still persisted. One scan with Malwarebytes and I'm back to 100%. Will use and recommend 10 times out of 10.

Excellent product, scans everything. To users, you need to configure this software to your liking, its not user defined, go to settings and set this how you prefer it to serve your personal needs, if your too afraid, get someone to help you.

Thank you team Malwarebytes.I just used the app because my phone speed was drastically slowed down, and sometimes it'll just shut down all of a sudden.I thought i contracted some sort of malware so i scanned my phone and discovered that i had 3 malware whatever on my phone.Thanks guys,my phone is mine again!

Saved my phone!!! I had horrendous ads plaguing my phone, even innapropriate ads coming up every time i unlocked my phone. Not only was this annoying, it was bad in class because of the nature of the ads. This app found the virus causing app in 2 minutes, i deleted it, restarted my phone, and i was finally free! I'm just praying it stays like this and that the ads never return!

I was unable to install this app when I purchased it on 9/9/19. I followed all directions, left messages and sent emails to Malwarebytes explaining the problem and asking for help. I rated it 1 star. I would have given zero if possible. I read that the Malwarebytes servers were overloaded, and that was why the download wouldn't work. I tried again last night, it downloaded with ease, accepted my activation code and ran perfectly. It found a PUP and had me remove it. I'd like .5 off for the prob.

I got a free 30 day trial of the app. A couple of times a day I get a popup on my home screen telling me to subscribe, with a big green "Subscribe" button on the bottom of my screen. It's like Malwarebytes is hoping I accidentally press the button, as it's positioned directly over my Home button. Seems shady to me, uninstalling.

This app hasn't done any good for me that I can tell. It's just using up space. It doesn't fix anything. It keeps telling me to "update the database" but every time I click on it, to update, nothing happens! Thanks for replying. I couldn't click on the link or copy and paste. When I finally got there, there's only chat & no way to simply send a message. It's as I've already stated so apparently this app is very limited unless a person buys the full version which I can't afford. It's Useless...

I have been using Malwarebytes for the desktop for over seven years. It has always been my number one recommendation to people when I am helping them with detecting suspicious files on their devices. This app is just as reliable their desktop software and it won't disappoint. While you don't necessarily need to pay for an upgrade, I'd highly recommend it. It's worth every penny.

Ads kept popping up in my phone until i found this app existed.. so I scan my phone with it for malware and when the ad popped up (turns out it was a 4MB file I downloaded and thought it wasn't harmful) it caught it and filed if as a malware right there on the spot. It really works very well I recommend you give it a shot you

I use this program on Android and mostly PC for myself and I also recommend it to anyone who needs to scan their device for threats. It is easy to install and use and it works great. The trial is nice for a quick scan and you can find and delete any threats with it for free. Or you can buy the premium version which has more features and protection. For personal use you can choose to protect 1 device or up to 3 and up to 10 for businesses. Completely Worth it!

After notice from broadband provider this app found the problem on first scan I tried it on phone and tablet and it came up with the same item there as well. I would buy it if I can use it on both devices for same price but cannot find that out, maybe someone who has paid for it could post on here if I can.

I downloaded this app as I got some adware and tried to get rid of them. It didn't work, but meanwhile it helped to clean and boost my device. I'm kinda disappointed in not having found a way to get rid of this adware thought, but bopsting my phone is already something.

Since I started using Malwarebytes several years ago, I have had practically no issues with malware whatsoever. This is the only practically flawless software I've had - it does everything it promises to do and does so impeccably!

Peace of Mind ! I got it now! Ultra User Friendly User Interface or Control Settings. Great Feature to have is Boot Scan. Malwarebytes will begin a Scan the instant phone is Powered-On. Bad things can be hidden deep inside the systems files especially boot up files those files used when you turn on your phone to initiate all programs. I demand privacy. Why must I give up certain levels of my privacy to use smart phones or computers? Malwarebytes has a privacy scanner. I'm staying premium!

It is clear that this app does not like custom roms from manufacturers that are not the major players, it always finds fault with some system app or the other. Two different devices with one it was the FOTA and the YGPS apps, with the other the TCTweather app. Maybe you should put toast notifications in your app saying "Buy Samsung" "Buy Motorola" "Buy Iphone".

Same issue as Rebecca stated in her review... the app says it needs an update, but when I click, nothing happens. Also, when I try to run a scan, it freezes and crashes. Useless.

Malwarebytes is great! I knew I had a virus on my phone that was slowing it down drastically and I did a full system scan and it managed to find and delete the virus. I instantly got my phone full functionality back.

Excellent app for malware detection. My phone was showing anonymous advertisements and browser was redirecting and showing all sort bloody advts. Play protect was on and even installation from unknown source was blocked. Tried different browsers, Uninstalled browsers, nothing worked. I become nuts and finally I heard about malwarebites, installed and run a scan. Abrakabrah..found out infected with one mobitrack adware. Removed, now phone is back to normal and I am back to my senses. Thank you.

I have Note 8 w/PIE OS. Wish everyone would state those 2 things. Anyway I have no idea if this app does what it says it does because❗It just says there's a problem by showing the # of problem s and the button that says FIX IT. I'm not dumb enough to just 'Fix It'. Who knows if this app might be having some issue with the latest update Samsung sent for my Note 8. If this app ever decides to show what the problem is and what they will do when 'Fixing It' I'll try it again. For now no thank you😪

I'm very happy with this app because the first moment it started scanning to the end it went very smooth and thorough and it did find one issue and it solved the problem immediately with my permission of course.. so 5 stars cause it works fast and sufficiently

Antivirus and antimalware apps are those apps you hope you'll never discover how good they truly are. Malwarebytes thankfully proved its worth when it detected the malware in CamScanner, long before news of the infection got reported on BBC News. I should point out that CamScanner is a legitimate app that can be trusted. The infection appears to come from a 3rd party component, according to the BBC article.

This App prevented me from throwing a new phone away. Frustration got the better of me when I was unable to remove a "Warning" that prevented the telephone from doing absolutely anything! The warning was obviously fictitious - words spelled incorrectly, a demand for money by an untraceable "Vanilla" credit card and other obvious tells, but still, the phone was locked. I checked online from anorher device and received prescise instructions on how to install Malwarebytes. It worked perfectly.

I was experiencing some issues like ads popping on screen for no reason. Then I download this app and just after one scan, this app found the malware and removed it from my device. This is the best free antivirus.

After trying several well known antivirus and anti malware programs to remove a PUP from my home computer that failed to find it, I tried the free version of Malwarebytes and it found it and removed it easily. I now keep the paid version on my computer and phone. Well done Malwarebytes.

I have got this app on my desktop PC And it works awesome! I installed the android version And i Will soon upgrade to premium service :) i Will come Back with review after i try it. I never had the android version. I am confident it Will perform as good as the desktop version. Edit 10.10.2019 : i have tried it with an EICAR file test while using the premium trial, by installing a special test app from google play, And the MB promptely popped up with virus alert ASAP. It works great. Keep it up!.

I love it on my PC,wish it was on my , tablet but I'm a PC old man idiot. I did buy it for my home. Which part of I am an PC idiot did you not get. My other account for my home PC is a frontier mail. How do I add this tablet ! Which I barly know how to use to the malwarebytes on my PC that I love. I only turn this thing on 1-2 times a week. How do I give you my other e mail????. To verify what you need to do this???. Thanks.

So trimmed down as to be nearly useless. All in an effort to force upgrading to their monetized product. Worse still, the Update Database feature is either disabled or broken, such that the scanner cannot be updated without uninstalling/reinstalling. I'm going to uninstall, but almost certainly will not reinstall again.

Not really possible to provide accuracy details or results to scans as Android is not generally affected by viruses.Good overall protection for beginner to intermediate users. Advanced users lean towards CCleaner or Avast options instead. This software is, however the gold standard for malware detection and removal on PC. It is yet to be proven whether this version written for Android will perform and most importantly protect.

Pretty unhappy with Malwarebytes overall. A week ago my phone started having serious stuttering and lag issues which I was surprised about (Note9). I deleted Malwarebytes today and it seems to have sped up the phone so much. Not sure how or why this happened. I tried restarting my phone and nothing ever happened.

Malwarebytes is great but I had some fustrating instillation issues . i factory reset my phone due to problems, reinstalled app. All i get is "oh snap" your screwed . Went to my Malwarebytes account and deleted old devices not used. It now says you have 2 devices available. I delete app reinstall it and i get the same thing ! "Oh snap" didn't wait 24 hours, deleted it waited the 24 hour. Malwarebytes installed , put my key in all is good .. hope this helps anyone with a similar problem .

Just like every good free antivirus, it had devolved into a state where it practically begs you for money, threatening that it is to help protect your device. It stopped becoming antivirus, and is more likely adware now. They don't even care about this either. I'll prove it. They will likely just put an automated response to this review.

'Upgrade to premium' does not tell you which version you are purchasing (e.g. home or single) and there's no way to contact support: "chat is unavailable." They lost me, a potential paying customer.

Best company, I'm glad they offer a free trial and help you get rid of anything that keeps popping up on your device. Used them for years and thank you again for helping me get rid of this Trojan I somehow got.

The best proactive malware and virus protection program in my opinion, but is a extreme CPU hog. Drastically slows down your device over time. If that can be fixed, this program will be perfect.

I think Malwarebytes is a great program for your PC, and your phone. It works fast, and is effective against harmful stuff that can cause pop-ups and slowdowns. It cleaned up my phone, and it works better then ever!

Nokia 2.1 Android 9 GO. I dont think this antivirus does anything at least on my device. On second scan, which was allegedly full, there were already glitches as the scan seem to have stopped but still had a "stop" button. When i pressed it the scan allegedly continued but started from scrach according to items scanned. Also, there were no differences in scan time between full and ordinary scan. It's all fake scanning as most of these antivirus apps.

#1 in cyber security. I have toiled with other programs for years and then came Malwarebytes. Since installing Malwarebytes more than 10 years ago, I have been totally free of issues; not a single one!!! Malwarebytes is unequaled and my only choice for life.

Showing the systems app as a malware, really🙄?? You can't disable it, you can't uninstall it, you basically can't do anything to it except to tell me it's a malware.. yeah, then what?? "oh just ignore it, you see it's fixed, legend" says u.. Maybe you're trying to tell me I need a new device(?) But hang on, the systems app came with the device since created.. Or maybe you should come up with a device and help everyone with a device without a malware in it(?) I wonder if ur app really work???????

An excellent product, it doesn't have all the extra bells and whistles that others have, but it has everything I need, and doesn't seem to affect battery life at all, so it's 5 stars from me!

Informs me of "Issues" (Update database -- in red); I tap it, nothing happens. It also lists "Upgrade Now" in orange; I tap it, it immediately takes me to the buy subscription page.

I got bored once and decided to see if I could try to break this. I couldn't. I went to the nastiest sites I could with Tor and it kept blocking it. I don't advise trying to break it yourself and use a phone you are going to throw away anyway if you are. Love this. Definitely recommend this if you want privacy and little battery impact.

What can I say about Malwarebytes it works.But they turn it off to get you to buy the paid version.On my old phone they use to let me use it even though I wasn't paying for it.Just as long as I help them collect info.It wasn't the full v. But it was basic.It doesn't look like they're going to let me do it this time. I found another antivirus dfndr (Defender) Security by Psafe.They let you use their basic free v. And if you like it you can then buy paid v. And they seem to have good reviews too.

I've only had it for 5 minutes and I already love it. It detects malware in the blink of an eye. It removed viruses from my phone that I didn't even know were there. I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to make sure there phone/tablet/PC stays virus and malware free.

desk ver is always good but mobile ver is broken. I have a serious problem on my phone/network ie DDos,APT mal/ransomware etc or something.cant see as admin. crashes & never finishes first scan,had prem. for days now & nothing.don't know what I'm paying for.this is serious stuff,my personal info is being exploited. I'm about to report this & Google to the website. for Christ's sakes update your app already Aug 5th? it's Oct. if database updates every 3 hrs. whynot app. fix or refund.

Terrible app even the paid version had to reset my phone and can no longer even get the paid version on it even though I have a code. Do not purchase because it will not help getting rid of any malware or hacking! It's only for keeping you getting hacked not for finding the hacker that is already found you!!

just installed and ran the scan. peace of mind knowing it checked my phone and I am clean. Ran again ... a tear later. Found malware and removed my favorite app. Hope I can find a new one for scanning documents. Irritating since I paid for that app. Still love malwarebytes

Malwarebytes showed two difficult problems which I found also by myself. But it is only possible to enable this programms, which I can do by myself too. They anyway creep back whether Malwarebytes enables or I do. I thouhgt this defender programm is more advanced and I hoped it would be possible to even remove thees difficult programms.

The app's pretty well laid out but for some reason I can't find my license information which should be available. Update: later found my Android purchase doesn't show on my MWb profile, just the desktop, ticket submitted and the new device upgrade coming out appears awesome.

I have kept using Male are bytes anti-malware for several years now, and it's always taken care of all malware issues I have ever had. It's the only thing I truly trust to keep my phone and computer running well. I highly recommend this product to anyone who has issues with their devices. It won't let you down!

Update database function is not working _EDIT_ Update db button worked but in the background with no notification or clarification of its process running. After running MB Free version on a clearly infected device, I recieved a "No malware found" prompt though Ive intentionally let loose a well known and popular form of malware via a sandboxed environment merely to see if it would be discovered. Being this one of the most common forms of malware. 7.0.1 android arm LG G5 factory stock.

I have used Malwarebytes on my PC's and sure enough the Android app is up to their standards. Malwarebytes finds things on your devices that no other scanners seem to detect. I highly recommend this product.

Tried to get a hacked game day before. Got an invisible adware that took up the whole screen. Went on a crazy purge of every app that I recently installed or hadn't used in a while and purged like 70% of my native files on my phone. Thought I might have to reset to get rid of it. I let this app run for about 5 minutes and it found the 1 and only adware causing the issue. Removed it and tada. 10/10 IGN!!!

As much I KNOW this App is 1 of the best? Somehow it's been "hijacked" by "Split Admin" issues, which should be impossible as I've got a singular name & AM my OWN Admin Then! It got kidnapped to the "secure folder" for which I have access obviously, but who's permissions are "Enforced by Policy" ridiculously! From Chrome to Android System Webview Device compromised issues (acknowledged Google/Samsung/Etc) MALWAREBYTES HAS DONE NOTHING TO ALERT A SINGLE PROBLEM! On a confirmed hacked device?

I have used the free version for several years. Works great for a free service. The only thing I would like is if the upgraded version was also free! With the free service I do have to initiate the scan, but that isn't an issue at all. 😁

No noticeable decrease in speed or battery power. Protection is seamless. Have both Windows and Android. Loving the feeling of security it gives.

There was a back door malware on my phone that was driving me crazy and Malwarebytes security was the only one that was able to isolate it and remove it restore my phone back to normal and I love them for it!

The most reliable antivirus/anti-malware app for Android, I even use the PC version and it has many great features and 99% of the time it finds the harmful things on all my devices.

Its too good app real and geniun app ..when i dont know where is going my phone ram .while i do not use many big apps but my ram is full after that i use malwarebyte..its increase my phone ram 1.50 gb and internal storage also pls use this app thank you and also do support malware team ..thankyou

After trail the use of this app gets useless as you cannot update the database anymore and use it manually in this kind of way. (like many other apps offer you this) Therefore long term testing cannot be completed. First impression is good.

The best antivirus app that works for both pc and android. Really works great. It helped me removing trojan and redirecting adware and malware from my pc and android twice and that too on free version! Really the most honest amd true app in the case of antivirus! Would really recommend it!

Best anti-virus & anti-malware app on planet! I have 5 devices with Premium Malwarebytes. Easy peasy! No problems! Keeps itself up-to-date. Don't have to tell it what to do. It automatically scans devices daily & the price is reasonable!

Refuses to update. I cleared the cache and I have a paid subscription. I'll uninstall it and reinstall it to see if it will work. It worked but not by pushing the Update button but on its own. I hate that it wasn't updated and I didn't know about it until I went in the app!

Pretty good software,I've been using Malwarebytes on my Personal Computer since late 2017,and I've never ran into any issues.Interface and the scanning screen are very simple and easy to use.Recommended for sure.Good job,and thank you for this masterpiece.

It found a virus that I knew was on my phone but none of the other anti virus apps could detect and removed it, huge thanks btw to this app.(btw the virus was a pop up virus that kept making adds pop up randomly on my phone and that's how I knew that something was wrong but thankfully this app detected it and removed it successfully while giving a free 30 days premium trial)

I really love this app on PC and phone. But it keeps saying my Google play protect isn't on and when I click on it, it says it's already active. Not a big deal, just my OCD being crazy. Keep up the great work guys!

I was having issues with ads popping up from "startapp" that was sending ads on behalf of an app. Malwarebytes located the app for me and allowed me to delete it and the associated files. Avg did not pick this up. Well done and thank you.
