Malwarebytes, a well-known antivirus program, has premium and free versions. The latter has a feature known as Web Protection which helps users stay safe from malware, and other online threats by stopping them immediately when they attempt to attack. Unfortunately, a number of users have noticed that the Web Protection feature turns itself off without explanation. If this occurs to you take these steps to get it back up and running:
If you are unable to fix a problem with Malwarebytes Web Protection by altering the settings of your browser or changing the browser, you might want to use System Restore to go back to a time where this issue didn’t occur. This can be done by right-clicking on the primary executable of the program and selecting the “Properties” option. Click the “Compatibility tab” and select the “Run this application their website as an administrator” option.
Malwarebytes Web Protection identifies and prevents online scams, which include browser lockers as well as other scare tactics that scammers who offer tech support employ to extort money from innocent victims. It also blocks third-party trackers that record your online activity and uses the data to target ads. Finally, it prevents malware from installing in-browser cryptocurrency miners and gives other malware the boot. If you’re not sure if this security suite is suitable for your needs, you can request a 60-day money back guarantee, which is much longer than the 30 day guarantee offered by a majority of competitors.
