I have a high degree of trust in Malwarebytes, the company, as I use their PC software as part of my PC security tool set. This does not disappoint me. The app seems to work in a manner that makes sense to me. I don't really use my phone in a risky way, but I like how, after a scan, it lists non OS essential apps that have assumed some unusual rights. Useful in a system that promotes auto updates.
There is much more going on in my device that this application is not reporting in which has caused me to un install applications that should have been kept in the first place. All applications running in the background are as they do not exist. Facebook is one of them. I do not dislike this. I am disturbed that it no longer performs as it did in the first few weeks of its use. Other programs have gotten smarter in hiding activities. This may improve overall. Hopefully.
I have the paid version on my pc, works well, and so *did* this phone version of MWB. However this current updated Android version seems to stay stuck on a scan, notification at top stays and scans seem to loop sometimes. Happens on both Pixels (one is XL). It's a 5 star rated app, though I used 3 stars to get the attention of devs.
Used malware bytes on my PC for about 4 years and highly rate it. I have ran Malawebytes on my cheap Chinese Homtom HT6 for 15 months and in all that time this app has worked with no bugs, no pop ups telling you your battery is flat, no scanning when its not scheduled, it does not run the battery down or use up all the ram, love it... Nice and simple works in the background NOT full of bloody adverts!!!.
I have had this great app on my desktop and laptop. I highly recommed it as an added security for ALL your devices. It has even caught a silent message or email from being sent from my email app. Stopped it in its tracks, and now keeps any silent email from being sent. No telling how long thats been going on !! So now i checked for the app for my smartphone android and just downloaded it. This is great for an added app to back up your antivirus. I highly recommed it to everyone....
Use WAAYYYY too much RAM! Good app, no doubt. I am running Malwarebytes on my PCs and I like it. I wanted to give it a try on mobile. Unfortunately, while the UI is really nice and the services are top notch, the background process use A LOT of RAM on my phone. 134mbs when services are running. Forget about the battery saving. Too bad, I won't be keeping it for this reason.
