Editors' Review

MalWareBytes Anti-Malware isn't the do-it-all app you're used to on your desktop, but it is certainly effective. It sacrifices some of the powerful features you'd use less often for ease of use and speed. That makes it a lot easier for new users to understand while still maintaining the power to fully protect your phone or tablet.

This app offers protection from viruses, as well as privacy concerns and theft. Our first scan took about a minute and a half, which is great for a full scan. Doing a privacy scan took a matter of seconds, found every app that connected to our accounts, and advised us on a course of action to protect our privacy. The app automatically corrects any virus problems it finds, but it lets you take care of deleting or modifying dangerous apps. MalwareBytes is more proactive as you install apps, but its real strength comes from its automatic scan scheduling. These scans can be programmed to happen at any time of the day and can work in the background so they don't disrupt your regular usage. While the app lets you see how your phone is utilizing your memory, it doesn't let you close out running apps and doesn't offer a task killer. The app's menu is ridiculously basic, which makes it a little boring to use after awhile.

While this name is usually considered a tech-savvy brand, the mobile version has made things a lot easier to use. This is a blessing and makes MalwareBytes a great app for most users. While the gearheads may want more to optimize their phone's performance, average users will be more than pleased with all this app can do.
