Malwarebytes had been objectively the industry standard for perhaps 10 years or more that I've been using it on different devices and running once per week manually - the free version kept my device safe. The free version is no longer available. Some very difficult choices are going to need to be made. Not even a home screen explanation of the change in business models. Nada. Quite the disappointment. Can't even begin to imagine how many others I have recommended this to for use on Android. 🥺

Hi Paul, We've made changes to our app to encourage users to check out all of our great features via a 7-day trial. During or at the end of that trial, users can easily opt out and they'll switch to free mode and continue to enjoy some of our great features. If you're having issues getting into free mode, Contact

I've had the free version for several years so I don't have the problems others reported. However recent versions are quirky. Updating the database is hit or miss. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Also scans vary wildly in speed. Often it's only a few seconds. Other times it takes a half hour. The last one (which prompted this review) was 40 minutes! Malwarebytes used to be a great program. Now it's just one of many. If it gets goofier, I'll just replace it.

You must sign up for a trial and cancel to use the free version. Without sufficient balance on your account/credit card attached, you can't use the app. Malwarebytes counts on users forgetting to cancel, or says an issue occured and the cancellation failed, then takes payment from people wanting the free tier. Not everyone notices or fights it. They keep that money. If this wasn't their goal, they'd offer access to the free tier from the subscription page. The fact that they don't says it all.
