Customer Support for Malwarebytes

Malwarebytes is a security software that uses a combination of behavioral, heuristic and signature-based detection methods to protect home users from various malware attacks. Currently, it is compatible with Windows 7/8/8.1/10/Vista/XP, MacOS 10.10 or higher, Android 4.4+, iOS 11 and later versions. Likewise, users can easily protect almost any device from numerous cyber threats with Malwarebytes. 

We can make a quick Malwarebytes review for those who are interested — this security tool protects your files from being locked and held for a ransom, detects emerging cyber threats, prevents programs from being used against you, and helps you avoid phishing[1] websites as well as crush the latest scams. 

Users can download Malwarebytes free version from the official website. The free trial allows people to enjoy all features for 14 days – this includes real-time protection from malware, exploit attacks, and malicious websites. However, once the trial expires, users can no longer use real-time protection function. Despite that, the antivirus still cleans the computer from already present infections, like potentially unwanted programs (PUPs)[2]

Although, some users might find real-time protection[3] essential and want to uninstall Malwarebytes once the trial expires. You can purchase the premium version for $39.99 per year for one device. If you're going to use this malware removal software on multiple machines, Malwarebytes for home allows protecting up to five devices for $79.99 per year. For those willing to do a little extra for their security and privacy, users can also choose a Premium + Privacy plan for $84.99/year, which includes a free VPN and other useful features.
