Malwarebytes is a popular antivirus program that has both free and premium versions of its software. The latter comes with an option called Web Protection which helps users remain safe from malware and other online threats, by stopping them immediately when they attempt to attack. Unfortunately, many users have reported that the Web Protection feature turns itself off for no apparent reason. If this occurs to you then follow these steps to get it working again:
If you are not able to fix an issue with Malwarebytes’ Web Protection by altering the settings for your browser or altering the browser, you might need to utilize System Restore to go back to a period when this issue did not happen. This can be accomplished by right-clicking the main executable and choosing “Properties”. From there, select the “Compatibility” tab, and then choose the “Run this program as an administrator” option.
Malwarebytes Web Protection detects and blocks online scams, including browser lockers and scare tactics utilized by scammers using tech support to extort money from unwary victims. It also blocks third party trackers that analyze online activity and use the data to target advertisements. It also blocks malware from introducing cryptocurrency miners to the browser and eliminates other malware. If you’re unsure whether this security suite is suitable for you, the company offers a 60-day guarantee on their money-back which is significantly higher than other rivals that offer a 30-day period.
