Malwarebytes is a popular antivirus program that provides free and premium versions of its software. The latter includes a feature called Web Protection that helps keep users secure from malware and other online threats by stopping them immediately they attempt to attack without the need to run an initial scan. Unfortunately, Web Protection has been frequently shut off for no apparent reason. If this happens to you follow these steps to get it back in operation:
If you are not able to fix the issue with Malwarebytes Web Protection by changing the settings of your browser or changing the browser, you might prefer to use System Restore to go back to a period when this issue didn’t occur. This can be done by right-clicking on the executable and selecting “Properties”. From there, click the “Compatibility” tab and select the “Run this program as administrator” option.
Malwarebytes Web Protection identifies and stop online scams, such as browser lockers and other scare tactics that scammers using tech support employ to extort cash from victims who are not aware. It also blocks third party trackers that look at online activity and use the data to target ads. It also stops malware from installing cryptocurrency miners in the browser and blocks other malware. If you’re uncertain about whether this security suite is the right one for you, the company provides the option of a 60-day refund that is significantly more than other competitors 30 days.
