Malwarebytes is an Android security application. It scans your mobile device for viruses, malware and potentially unwanted programs.
This popular utility can be very helpful for users who care about the privacy and security of their data. The app is able to recognize the problem, warn you and help to remove the threat.
Like another security and performance tool OneBooster, Malwarebytes runs a scan of your device and detects viruses and bloatware. In addition, it is able to protect you from potentially unwanted software, ransomware and various phishing scam schemes. Users can also review access privileges of all installed apps like tracking your location or making phone calls.
Besides the on demand scanning, the utility offers real time protection. It runs in the background and prevents infections before they happen. To enable this feature, users have to buy a subscription. However, all other functions are available for free. Also, Malwarebytes has no ads whatsoever. To help you make a decision, there is a 30 days trial available.
