- by Firefox user 12149004, a month agoRated 1 out of 5Beware of "Malwarebytes Browser Guard." It is garbage!
It is an add-in for Chrome and Firefox, which pretends to protect you against visiting dangerous web sites. Instead, it displays bogus warnings about visiting ANY site in the .info or .biz "top level domains," except those which have been "whitelisted."
I discovered this when I got a complaint that my own .info web site was blocked for "suspicious" content which might "contain scam activity." I checked all the .info sites in my bookmarks file, and about two-thirds were similarly blocked.
I reported 22 wrongly-blocked sites to Malwarebytes, and they unblocked ("whitelisted") them all within a few days.
Still, imagine if a pregnancy test, or a COVID-19 test, was wrong 66% of the time. Would you be satisfied with such performance, if you had bought such a test?
Obviously, Malwarebytes should only display such warnings if there's reason to believe they are true. That means they need to have bots scan the web sites, looking for suspicious content. ONLY if they find suspicious content on a site (or if the site blocks access by the bot) should they tell their users that a site is "suspicious," and warn against visiting the site.

- by Kelsie, 2 months agoRated 1 out of 5Unfortunately the second I installed this my internet went to hell, it slowed all the web pages down and no YouTube video would load, just said there was an error. It's a shame as I've used Malwarebytes to protect my computer for years (I highly recommend that protection 5/5 there) and I love their products but the browser add on just didn't work for my laptop. I uninstalled and my webpages went back to normal.

- by Firefox user 14266430, 2 months agoRated 1 out of 5Ruined many things for me until I found the culprit -- this plugin.
1) Random products on random online shops started appearing in my cart, automatcally!
2) Now the main thing: I wasted a week of my valuable time, and other people's time trying to find out why my Wordpress websites lose data and become corrupt when I manage the back end! It caused huge damages and lots of extra work. By disabling this plugin things don't get randomly deleted and messed up anymore.
The 1) scenarios happen on any random online shop built on Woocommerce, and it also happened here: chicsexshop.com
The 2) scenarios only happen on Wordpress admin back end, things get thrown into trash and randomly deleted.

How did it get installation process get to the EULA to be agreed to, when that EULA did not even get displayed? It did however display the "click on Malwarebytes icon at top right in firefox" then stopped t that point with the display of "Sorry, we can't evaluate this type of page." and then stops installation without even getting to the EULA. The progress bar also stops attthe one third point

- by Firefox user 14912243, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Used in the past but now has become a Big Brother trying to censor what I consider to be critical content vital to preserving Western civilization. There is no place for Malwarebytes in my world.
- by Firefox user 14992572, a year agoRated 1 out of 5Warning: Clickbait.
Category: unreliable content
This website may contain clickbait. blah, blah…
Oh, thanks for the unnecessary heads up, but it's 2019 and the internet and malware apps are commodities.
I would not leave a bad review if Malwarebytes gave a mechanism to report a conventional ‘false positive.’
The code of JihadWatch.org is scanned daily for malware, adware and blacklisting which can be confirmed →
- by serenanocturna, a year agoRated 1 out of 5WARNING! CENSORSHIP MASQUERADING AS COMPUTER PROTECTION! You used to be able rely on this add-on to remove browser adware and malware. But now, they've decided to become Big Brother censors to decide for us what content on the web is of value and to be trusted. And that adds up to legitimate news sites (usually conservative, but not always) being flagged as "Clickbait" & "unreliable". Of course, if they get this wrong, they should not be trusted to do what they are meant to do, and you should protect your browser by uninstalling this puppy. And so I'm letting you know, Firefox, how you are passing off censorship under the guise of malware protection. Hey, I don't tell you where to get Ur news: STOP telling me where mine should come from!
- by Firefox user 12972957, a year agoRated 1 out of 5This extension is ridiculous. It tells you everything is click-bait so tries to block you from it (ask if you "really" want to go to that page"!)
Problem is that many sites have click bait now. It's how internet sites make money.
So okay, lighten up on the click bait warnings and then ask me again...
So far I'm not impressed - all it does is slow me down in my browsing with it's stupid useless warnings of click bait.
- by GµårÐïåñ, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Absolutely the dumbest thing I have ever seen. It pops up and claims that my own WordPress admin backend where I am composing a new post is "suspicious" behavior and blocks and breaks all functionality of it and even after you whitelist this dumb assessment, it continues to interfere with the way the site works, I had high hopes for a tool that I have used for years but recently it has gone straight to crap, I have given up on the desktop version but decided to give this a try and it is as half baked as it can possibly get, such a shame.
- by Firefox user 12031635, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5Tried it for a couple of days. For some reason it does not like Yahoo and wouldn't let me log in to my account. Also right after installing it I noticed my wi-fi coverage throughout our house went from excellent to almost none unless I was right next to the router.we would be more then happy to help with your yahoo issue, please drop a line at email@example.com
as for the wi-fi router coverage, extension is not involved in any sort of the wi-fi related activity.

- by Firefox user 14136684, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5I would not trust a closed source addon like this when there are much better open source tools to protect yourself from malware on the web like ublock origin with the malware filters all enabled.agree that there are great products in the market today, but most of them do not protect you from intrusive ads and clickbaits that you find on many popular websites.
Malwarebytes Browser Extension is uniquely positioned to fill those gaps.
