It literally does nothing. The scan takes FOREVER. It constantly gets stuck at around 5% and it takes close to 30 minutes just to get to that point. I am having the same issue as another reviewer that said that the scan stops completely if the screen goes off for any reason and you can't navigate away from it while it's scanning. I know for a fact that my device is infected due to its behavior, and Malwarebytes has never found anything. Ever. They used to be my go to, now they suck.

Essential! One MAJOR complaint: there's no progress indicator or any other way to tell if the database is updating when it needs to do so and that function is selected. It seems as if this would be a relatively simple task. I'm tempted to take away a star or 2 or 3. Again, a MAJOR annoyance! Android 10, Samsung Galaxy A20.

This app does what it says. Walks you threw the setup much easier than expected. Very user friendly. The app. does a nice scan (thourough) Lets you know what permissions are needed and why. Overall very smooth. While the app is working you just get a sense that this thing is really working. I would recommend this app to anyone (Everyone) that thinks they have malware problems. The app does offer you a trail period. If you are even remotely concerned with malware this app will end that
