Own a Chromebook? Here is a version of Malwarebytes that has been engineered to work on your Chromebook. In order to get this, your Chromebook must be able to run Android apps so that you can download and install from the Google Play Store. Malwarebytes for Chromebook is an Android app engineered specifically to protect your Chromebook. Google Play automatically detect your Chromebook and will install the appropriate Malwarebytes product. I am currently running this (and testing) on my Chromebook… I am a firm supporter of Malwarebytes on all platforms (Windows, Android, etc…).
Malwarebytes for Android or Malwarebytes for Chromebook free download comes for a limited time with an extended 90-day trial of the Premium version, if you sign up for a free Malwarebytes account. No commitment to buy required. When the 90-day trial is ended, Malwarebytes will only detect and clean, but not prevent, infections. It’s ad-free, forever.
I encourage you visit the source link below to learn about the “Dark Web” (aka: Deep Web). Did you know that only 5% of the Web is easily accessible to the general public and that many other sites can only be visited if you have a direct URL. I often referred to the “Dark Web” here on the blog as the underbelly of the internet…
Before you go to read the article (which is very interesting), you need to learn some terminology:
- Surface Web is what we would call the regular World Wide Web that is indexed and where websites are easy to find.
- The Deep Web is the unindexed part of the Web. Actually, anything that a search engine can’t find.
- The Dark Web is intentionally hidden, anonymous, and widely known for illicit activities.
In discussion with a computer geek friend of mine he indicated that Malwarebytes has a new version out (v3.0). I further confirmed this and learned that a new version was released on and about March 20, 2017. Based on what I am reading on their blog (for this release) — CLICK HERE — the excitement over this release is that it is being touted as a next generation anti-virus replacement and will be called only Malwarebytes.
Once you download and install you will be entitled to a 14 day free trial. If you desire to revert to the FREE edition now and turn “off” the free trial, simply click on the “settings” (at the left side) and then click on “my accounts”, then turn off the trial under “subscription details”. If you decide to stick with the free edition, you will need to periodically perform the scans manually.
Malwarebytes is one of the first things I install on a new computer and is my “go to” tool when helping others eradicate malware and other exploits…
This product is built to provide comprehensive protection against today’s threat landscape so that you can finally replace your traditional antivirus.
Our engineers have spent the last year building this product from the ground up and have combined our Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit, Anti-Ransomware, Website Protection, and Remediation technologies all into a single product which we simply call “Malwarebytes.” And it scans your computer 4 times faster!
With the combination of our Anti-Malware ($24.95), Anti-Exploit ($24.95) and Anti-Ransomware (free, beta) technologies, we will be selling Malwarebytes 3.0 at $39.99 per computer per year, 20% less than our previous products combined and 33% less than an average traditional antivirus. But don’t worry, if you are an existing customer with an active subscription or a lifetime license to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, you will keep your existing price and get a free upgrade to Malwarebytes 3.0. If you have both an Anti-Malware and an Anti-Exploit subscription, we will upgrade you to a single subscription to Malwarebytes 3.0, reduce your subscription price and add more licenses to your subscription.
