  1. In reality, they are rarely done automatically before I find them with update button and do it manually. As I've already written, the same goes for non-Mac AppStore apps. The problem of the dancing icon (not two / three times but even twenty) also happens 20 times / month / app (especially if little used) In reality, having only, in addition to the 9 mentioned above, 13 applications excluding the system ones, I do it quite quickly and in addition I check all the updates in the worst case every two days (both on the store and on the developer sites). Some apps have been in need of upd
  2. The apps of the Mac AppStore, when they update are seen in the Updates tab. As for the other apps (which however are very few on my Mac) they are apps that receive very few updates (in some cases less than one a year). I am sure of it because, despite having automatic updates, often, even before these occur at the launch of the app, I have already found them on the site before they are proposed to me In the end there are 9 in all including Malwarebytes (not Mac AppStore and not supplied as standard with macOS)
  3. I reiterated the origin of Office because I thought that the Mac AppStore apps were only verified at the beginning (being provided by Apple even if as a reseller and not a developer) and then only after an update Yes, I have the automatic updates on Mac AppStore setting (as well as on the system setting and all the other app setting) and, at least as regards office, the update normally takes place once a month with Patch Tuesday (or in the days immediately following)
  4. Thanks @alvarnell for the reply. But, as I wrote, Word and Excel are the 365 version of the Mac AppStore and not downloaded from the Microsoft site. I don't have any Adobe or other heavy software in general This happens with almost all apps (not always but often enough especially if I don't open the apps for one / two days) whether they are taken from sites or from the Mac AppStore (even the iOS ones that can be used on Mac M1) excluding only ( if not very rarely) those of the system (e.g. Mail, Messages) As I wrote it does not happen only when the apps are updated (and I would unders
  5. Happy Saturday to @treed and all the staff I wanted to ask for information about a situation that has occurred since I have the MAC M1 and BigSur (always the latest version) and Malwarebytes (always updated, I always try the betas too) The various apps that I have installed on the Mac (including MS Word & MS Excel - both downloaded from the Mac AppStore) every now and then, especially when they haven't been opened for some time (not necessarily a long time interval) become extremely slow on opening (with the icon bouncing for several seconds) as if they were scanned before use (i
  6. I would like to report to @treed and all the staff After the last two macOS updates (11.3 and 11.3.1) Malwarebytes it has, as it were, deactivated. The first time (macOS 11.3) I reinstalled Malwarebytes (I had read it was necessary) and it fixed Reading a comment from @treed (last time) with macOS 11.3.1 it was enough to follow the advice to restart the Mac. Symptoms: Malwarebytes menu (completely disabled excluding the Open Malwarebytes item) with prohibition sign on M By clicking on open Malwarebytes, the attached screen appears This has never happened with
  7. Download and install Malwarebytes for Mac Inside this article there is the link for the version compatible with macOS 10.11.x
  8. MacOS 11.3 installed now (final version released today) Malwarebytes no longer functional. The following screen appeared (it had already happened a few times but it was enough to close and reopen the app) with a prohibition signal on the M of the menu bar to fix it was necessary to reinstall the Malwarebytes app on itself.
  9. Unlike the Windows version, the macOS version does not yet have web protection (it seems to be planned for the future but it is not known when)
  10. Unfortunately, I was also in the same situation. You can only delete Malwarebytes and if there is a new beta and you will be included among the testers or it will be published on the AppStore of your country you will be able to have the app otherwise not. At the moment I have solved it using the Safari protection functions and will purchase (at the end of the trial period) 1blocker (excellent ad-blocker, recommended by @treed , and more - available with a single in-app purchase or subscription that can be shared among all Apple devices and even in the family) and for the use I make o
  11. On February 11, 2021, the beta was suspended. Read here
  12. @VirusProblem your thread has already been moved to the correct sub-forum by the administrator Go ahead here
  13. It is a restriction only present on iOS and not on macOS that allows installations even from outside the Mac AppStore
  14. From the screenshot posted it turns out to be Malwarebytes for Windows and here we are on the Malwarebytes for iOS sub-forum.
  15. Find it written at the bottom of this page However, I attach a screenshot
  16. No. About the quick scan you can find the answer here .
  17. Thanks @alvarnell with the command you suggested Apart from the ROOT users, MY PERSONAL USER (which I prefer not to name) and COM.MALWAREBYTES.MBAM.NOBODY, I found the user NOBODY (which I believe corresponds to the guest user ) and the user DAEMON I ask @treed , @alvarnell , is everything normal? Thanks Good Evening (since you are in America, in Italy it is already morning) Massimiliano
  18. Sorry, where do I check this presence? I use the same version of Malwarebytes but I only have my user and guest disabled
  19. My distaste for Java is due to a personal experience. The software that are used with the Public Administration in Italy (the only ones I had to use) to make them cross-platform, are written in Java and normally require obsolete Java versions (even two different ones for software connected to each other in the same year) and different for every year forcing you to keep multiple Java versions installed (obsolete is an understatement) to see data from previous years and in the Windows world I come from (abandoned for 8 years now) having multiple and mostly obsolete Java versions installed has
  20. I would simply define (but it is my personal opinion) software such as those considered in this post Definitely unwanted programs (not only potentially) - mainly for their way of proposing themselves or for aspects that I have read on the internet, from which I will do everything not to be even touched (as I always did with Flash). I also don't like Java applications (I've only used one, for a few years in the past, because it's required, but luckily that's not the case anymore).
  21. Thanks @alvarnell , but I prefer to avoid experiments of this type, to avoid problems with my ISP (normally because the fixed line works they require you not to change the DNS on the router on the Fiber / FWA lines at the router level and to make as few changes as possible and it is It has already been an achievement of the last period to have the modem free (until recently it was mandatory to use a modem provided by the ISP completely blocked or almost on which it was not possible to modify practically anything - this is the beauty of being Italian). I would prefer, as I wrote, a browser
  22. Reductive definition for this software as for others 1blocker, which I am testing, also just prevents these downloads from showing up (from the websites above). It also allows you to block websites, but unfortunately it is a manual thing (personal rules) As I have already written to you once, I am not able to configure it (my experience with configurations such as linux is practically equal to 0) without considering that when a device is not under that network it would not be protected (read iPhone in 4G, for example when you are away from home). I would be fine with an exten
  23. As for the blocking of URLs recognized as dangerous (such as the ones I reported here) - for these, an ad-blocker is enough but this is not always the case - what can be done?
