Malwarebytes is a popular antivirus program that has both free and premium versions of its software. The latter has an option known as Web Protection which helps users protect themselves from malware and other online threats by stopping them instantly when they attempt to attack. Unfortunately, many users have discovered that the Web Protection feature turns itself off without explanation. If this happens to you, follow these steps to get it working again:
If you are not able to fix the issue with Malwarebytes’s Web Protection by altering the settings for your browser or altering the browser, you may need to utilize System Restore to go back to a period when this issue was not present. You can do this by right-clicking on the main executable of the program, and then selecting the “Properties” option. Click the “Compatibility tab” and select the “Run this application as an administrator” option.
Malwarebytes Web Protection detects and stop online scams, such as browser lockers and scare tactics used by scammers claiming to be tech support agents to extort money from unwary victims. It also blocks third party trackers that monitor activity on the internet and use this data to target ads. It also blocks malware from introducing cryptocurrency miners to the browser, and also eliminates other malware. If you’re unsure whether this security suite is right for you, the company provides the option of a 60-day refund which is much higher than other rivals that offer a 30-day period.
