Been using Malwarebytes for over a decade on my electronic devices (computers, phones, etc.) with great success. I recently got a new phone and transferred all of my apps from my old phone to my new one. Imagine my surprise when, after installing Malwarebytes to my new phone, the app wouldn't allow me to use it unless I upgraded to either the PREMIUM or the PREMIUM PLUS versions! It seems that Malwarebytes wants me to use a different app to protect my phone. Well, your wish is my command!!!

OK with not having your 'Premium Features' - Not OK with you identifing not having these features as 'outstanding issues'. Your Malware scanner is pathetically slow (for years now) - it's like you purposely slow it down and penalize 'Free' users. As it takes over 16 hours to run a single scan - I only run it every couple of months. It never finds anything - so I guess my other AV products are working just fine.

Safe Browsing Scanner not working and attempted to correct it. Totally confusing experience. Malwarebytes Security notices keep popping up. Trying to address them, but can't resolve them. The app keeps wanting pictures but also keeps saying it's malfunctioning after taking pictures. What does that mean? It's a rabbit hole that never ends.
