Malwarebytes Premium Lifetime from Pro for FREE

10 Comments

Free if you already have pro version. From site:

It replaces your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro

I downloaded the free version of Malwarebytes a couple of months ago, but after a while it started counting down and then said that it had expired. I know that I downloaded this a couple of years ago and I had the free version for ages (up until the time I replaced my PC). I thought that the free version of it was supposed to be permanent thing if you wanted it on your computer? Any advice most helpful, thank you.

There are 2 modes, Free and Premium.
- Free only scans for bad stuff when you open Malwarebytes and click the scan button.
- Premium (used to be called Pro) runs permanently in the background, blocking files/websites as you try to open them.

Most likely you simply didn't un-tick the "Premium trial" during the installation.
Malwarebytes should continue to function now that the trial has expired, but without the automatic background protection.

Good editing of the title.

Why are people voting hot for a free update to a programme they already own?

There is still a free version - just do not accept the trial pro version and you will be ok

Uninstall the old and download the new latest version malwarebytes look at the page select Free version and during install or after installing (can't remember which) there's something to check to not accept the Pro trial.

There are 2 versions - the Pro gives live protection but the free should not be used as a live Antivirus Protection

Basically it depends on what you do online... I have Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Defender to protect my online activity although some would criticise these it all depends on your level of knowledge and what you browse or download.

I download the occasional file that might have the potential of being infected Microsoft Security Essentials should protect me but for added security I will scan the odd potential risk using Malwarebytes. Also maybe once every 4 months I might run a Malwarebytes full system scan (only because I like to check/update /maintain my system).

If you are 100% knowledgeable about the sites you use and the files you download and your current Antivirus is working and up to date then maybe you do not need Malwarebytes.

Again if you do not have Antivirus protection you will need (and pay for) the Pro version or use another antivirus - if you have a up to date. working antivirus you do not need Malwarebytes unless you are at risk from downloading risky material.

Yes, but this is a link to get a software update to a programme you already own. Or should we now post every software update as they happen.

No this post by somersetjoe is stating anyone who has paid for the Pro version only can now install the new Premium version and have it free for life. Basically Malwarebytes have upgraded/tweaked it's software and to thank all the investors (those that paid for the Pro version) they will have access to lifetime free Premium version which offers more than both the free and former Pro versions

No you actually get less. The pro version had lots of extra features which the premium does not have. I had the paid for pro version which was also free for life. I updated to this version and now get less. It is however as I said just a software update and is only free for people who paid for the pro version, who when they use it get told about the update like any other software update. This post serves no purpose at all.
