Malwarebytes is a well-known antivirus program that offers free and premium versions of its software. The latter has an option called Web Protection which helps users stay safe from malware, and other online threats by stopping them immediately after they attempt to attack. Unfortunately, a number of users have discovered that the Web Protection feature turns itself off for no apparent reason. If this happens to you:
If you are unable to fix the issue with Malwarebytes’s Web Protection by altering the settings of your browser or changing the browser, you might need to utilize System Restore to go back to a point in time when this issue did not occur. This can be done by right-clicking on your main executable of the program and selecting the “Properties” option. Select the “Compatibility tab” and then select the “Run this application as an administrator” option.
Malwarebytes Web Protection identifies and prevents online scams, which include browser lockers as well as other scare tactics that scammers using tech support employ to extort money from unsuspecting victims. It also blocks third party trackers that analyze online activity and use the information to target ads. It also blocks malware from installing in-browser cryptocurrency miners, and allows other malware to be kicked out. If you’re unsure if this security suite is suitable for your needs, you can request 60 days of a refund, which is a lot longer than the 30-day warranty offered by the majority of competitors.
