Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile released!

We’ve gone mobile! After many months of development and testing, I’m pleased to announce the launch of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile.

If you’re like me, you can’t imagine living without your phone. It’s a social link, a necessary time waster, a business tool, and sometimes I even make calls with it.

So our team of developers and malware researchers built an Android mobile security app for our needs. The Malwarebytes way. We wrote all our own code and built our own malware signature database from scratch. That way we knew that the database was accurate and relevant. And we included only the essential security features—the native Android Device Manager now takes care of all the phone location features typically found in mobile security products, so it didn’t make sense add those. The core is anti-malware, with a couple other features that can detect apps that are violating your privacy or tracking your physical location.

And it’s just in time. Mobile malware increased by 614 percent over the past year according to some analysts. And that’s to be expected!

I wanted a lean, powerful app that beat the bad guys. And it had to be free. I think we pulled it off. But, more importantly, what do you think?

    I noticed there was a Malwarebytes for the iPhone and wanted to make sure it was from you before I used it.

    I sure hope your mobile security works as well as you all hope. I had Kaspersky which failed completely. I had to do a factory reset. I have written to feedback about this,just after installing your software. Thanks for making it free and available on playstore.
