Malwarebytes is the free version of Malwarebytes real-time antivirus software, which helps you stop browser hijackers as well as other harmful content while browsing the Internet. It also blocks annoying advertisements and prevents in-browser cryptojackers (unwanted cryptocurrency miners) and gives other malicious websites the boot.
The extension is simple to use, with no complicated settings and a few notifications that get in the way of browsing. It is the first and only browser extension that detects and blocks scams that target tech support among the most frequently encountered online dangers. It also improves the display of websites and blocks trackers that are able to track users and then bombard them with annoying ads and helps you to avoid malware downloads by blocking sites that contain it.
It doesn’t have the extra features you’ll find in other rivals, like firewalls, system tuneup tools or a password manager or parental controls. Additionally, it doesn’t offer long-term plans like Bitdefender or Kaspersky which can save you money in the long run.
