Temporarily Protection Disable Feature in Malwarebytes for Windows Posted September 17, 2016 To the ever supportive Malwarebytes anti-malware technical crew, This post was created to suggest a future implementation for the product of Malwarebytes anti-malware. It concerns about the limited features that the free product delivers to its users. I would like to bring up an idea which would be of convenience for a more niche demographic; that is, the ever-growing population of consumers who are regularly engaged in multiplayer entertainment applications requiring connections by unconventional ports and protocols. One of the major worries about the digital user revolves around having their protection application software(s) inhibiting the installation, or execution, of certain programs. Such applications including antivirus and anti-malware services are often advised to be uninstalled once a cumbersome issue relating to it and the user's applications has been discovered, but irritatingly left unresolved: therefore, much protection software are graded by the people for delicate balance in protection and user compatibility. This concept of judgement is furthermore encouraged by the large growing forum-like social media sites as users are now evermore in contact with millions of similar users. A common solution that such protection services have, to allow users to seamlessly install other programs and open various network related needs, is a 'temporary disable' option. That is, a temporary shutdown of the software's passive protection functions, which may last from ten minutes to the next time the machine is booted up or when the disabling feature is reverted. I feel that this would certainly appeal to the newer generation of digital consumers who will be, in some way, be regularly using a plethora of internet connection types. I do acknowledge the fact that the paid, complete version of this software boasts a feature to disable Malwarebytes opening upon the booting of windows, however, I find that somewhat inconvenient that it would require some form of purchase for this feature; therefore, I would like to request making that a free feature for the free version of the product, as well as an implementation of the option stated beforehand. I would really appreciate that. This may raise an issue regarding the safety of the users, as their protection may be placed into jeopardy should the protection be accidentally toggled off, but this uncertainty would simply be rectified by the need to bring up a brief prompt and confirmation dialogue directed to the user. Thank you for taking you time reading this thread-header of suggestion. Please take your time to consider the aforementioned points. I am really hopeful of this product and I wish to see it grow, strongly believing that this minute little function is one feature lacking from the product which the users would love to see added. Cheers.
