I really like Malwarebytes as a program an company, their program for the computer works great, but this app is not functional. It will continue to alert you that the database is out of date, so of course you want to fix it. But when you press the update button it does not do anything. You press the update button, it changes color to show you pressed it, then it doesn't do anything. The app Is kinda useless if it's not up to date.

I've used Malwarebytes on every device I've owned since back in the mid-90's and it's always been the best at what it does. I've seen complaints about the database not updating from other reviewers but luckily I haven't had that problem yet.. hopefully, it stays that way. * The app gave me a false positive for ransomware on McAfee Security for Metro by T-Mobile... after downloading and scanning with Kaspersky I was able to lay that to rest.

good anti-virus app, and a great value being free. I wish the UI was just a tad more responsive. it complains to me about my database being out of date and I go tulo update it by pressing the button, but there is no visual indicator that it's doing anything until it's finished.
