Malwarebytes Web Protection Review

Malwarebytes is the free version of Malwarebytes real-time antivirus software. It helps stop browser hijackers as well as other harmful content when you browse the Internet. It also blocks annoying advertisements and blocks in-browser cryptojackers (unwanted cryptocurrency miners), and gives malicious content the boot.

The extension is easy to use. There aren’t any complicated settings, and there’s only a few notifications that hinder browsing. It’s the very first and only browser add-on that can detect and stop scams for tech support, which are among the most popular online dangers. It also improves the display of websites and blocks trackers that can track users and bombard them with unwanted advertisements and assists you in avoiding malware downloads by blocking websites known to have it.

However, it does not include the extra features offered by some of its rivals, like firewalls, system tuneup tools and a password manager or parental controls. It also doesn’t have multi-year plans like Bitdefender and Kaspersky. This could save you money over the course of time.
