It does a complete scan, finds no issues, and then gives me a message that there are two critical issues to fix. I ran the scan again.. same result, no issues. It seems that the critical issue is that I haven't subscribed to the premium service. I've uninstalled it rather than being told that I have a critical issue when I don't.

I've had MWB for many years and during that time, my Premium subscription has become inexplicably disabled. If I hadn't found the possible presence of malware, which leads me to check MWB's status, I would never know that my paid subscription & RTP was not active. This has happened several times in recent years. This recurring problem, along with other issues that tech support never completely fixes is why I've decided it's become necessary to search for new malware & virus protection!

Still 6-7-22. This app is so worthless. Hitting update does nothing. Diagnostic info is still enabled by default before you can disable! Buttons are laggy and slow to respond. Interface is confusing. Some things can't be ignored or swiped away. I'd never pay for the premium version of this. My old phones are the only ones that even "need" it. If you have a flagship I suggest skipping mobile AV, it mostly does nothing IMO. Just be aware what you click and who to trust. I don't trust these guys.
