Malwarebytes on Android

On March 24th 2014, a revamped version of Malwarebytes was released, dubbed Malwarebytes 2.0. Individuals with a lifetime license could upgrade to this new version for free. This revision of Malwarebytes included numerous security improvements, as well as an updated GUI. They integrated the separate product "Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit" into the scanner.

For Premium users, a "Malwarebytes Chameleon" feature is integrated into the antivirus that allows the antivirus to be undetectable by malware, which is available through advanced settings. The Malwarebytes team also made numerous improvements to "Website Protection" and compatibility with older Windows systems.

Version 3.0 Edit

On December 8th, 2016, Malwarebytes was updated to Malwarebytes 3.0. It contained many new improvements, such as a new GUI and faster scanning. All three Malwarebytes programs (Anti-Malware, Anti-Exploit, and Anti-Ransomware) were merged into a single program. However, this meant that Anti-Exploit and Anti-Ransomware were no longer free products.
