Malwarebytes is a well-known antivirus program that offers free and premium versions of its software. The premium version comes with the feature known as Web Protection that helps keep users safe from malware and other online threats by stopping them when they attempt to attack without having to run a scan. Unfortunately, a number of users have discovered that the Web Protection feature turns itself off for no reason. If this occurs to you, follow these steps to get it back up and running:
If you are not able to fix the issue with Malwarebytes Web Protection by altering your settings in your browser or by altering the browser, you might want to use System Restore to go back to a time when this issue did not occur. This can be done by right-clicking on the primary executable of the program and choosing the “Properties” option. From there, click on the “Compatibility” tab and choose the “Run this program as an administrator” option.
Malwarebytes Web Protection detects and stops online scams such as browser lockers and scare tactics utilized by scammers claiming to be tech support agents to extort money from unwary victims. It also blocks third-party trackers that monitor online activity and use the information to target advertisements. It also stops malware from installing cryptocurrency miners in the browser and eliminates other malware. If you’re unsure if this security suite is suitable for you, you can avail a 60-day money back guarantee, which is far more than the 30-day guarantee offered by many competitors.
