Malwarebytes is a free version 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, stops in-browser cryptojackers (unwanted cryptocurrency miners) and gives other malicious websites the boot.
The extension is simple to use. There are no complicated configurations, and there are very few notifications that disrupt browsing. It's the first and only browser add-on that identifies and stops scams for tech support, which are among the most popular online threats. It also increases how quickly web pages show, blocks suspicious trackers that snoop on users and bombard you with unwanted ads, and helps you stay away from malware downloads by blocking websites known to contain them.
It doesn't have the extra features you'll find in some of its competitors, including a firewall, system tuneup tools or a password manager or parental controls. In addition, it doesn't offer multi-year plans, like Bitdefender or Kaspersky which could save you money over the long term.
