Malwarebytes offers its anti-malware product for Windows, Mac, and Android. The Malwarebytes 4 for Mac already features Dark theme support, which is where the Windows version lacks. After most requests from users, the company today released Malwarebytes 4.1 beta for Windows with Dark Mode UI, improved performance and enhanced AE detection and remediation.
After Malwarebytes 3, Malwarebytes version 4 is a major release (with a new zero-hour detection engine Kanata, redesigned interface and available for download with an online installer by default), followed by the launch of Browser Guard extension for Firefox and Chrome.
To avert issues with Windows Defender, Malwarebytes automatically registers in Windows 10 Security Center as primary antivirus, so Windows Defender will be turned off when Malwarebytes is installed. You can make Windows Defender to periodically check for threats by enabling periodic scanning setting in its options.
