  1. Thanks again!! At first I looked and looked and couldn't find a circle arrow button on the home page. However, on a fresh install there's a big "First 30 Days Free, Upgrade to Premium" banner on the home page so I figured I might have to activate Premium to see the button and sure enough, once I activated Premium the banner went away and was replaced with another banner that had the circle arrow manual update check button. So some suggestions to the devs ... The onboarding/first run user experience needs a little work IMHO. I was about to uninstall the app and it's only because I decided
  2. Thank you @MAXBAR1, this information is very useful indeed! I discovered I can view the definition versions by going to Help and clicking the "i" icon in the top left corner. My definitions were way out of date: Call Protection 1.0.2020012303 Web Protection 1.0.2020012306 AdBlocker 1.0.2019121910 I assume these are the definitions that get installed with the app since the dates line up with the release date of the last version of the iOS app. Since I installed the app about 3 days ago I wasn't sure if I just needed to wait a little longer for it to check for definiti
  3. It's been 8 months since the last update to the iOS app so I'm wondering if it's still actively under development. Also, is the Ad block and Web block definitions still being updated and downloaded to the app? The app doesn't show the version number of the definitions so I have no idea if it's being updated. Thanks!
  4. Hi folks, I actually logged in to ask about a popup I received today but I think it's the same popup being discussed here. Can someone please confirm that the popup being referred to in this thread is the exact same one in the attached picture? I just want to make sure that the popup I received is totally legit at least, since I never get this. I have a Premium license. PS: Sorry, couldn't take a screenshot, had to take an actual picture. It popped up in the lower right corner and didn't go away, I had to click the X. Thanks!!
  5. I appreciate the the response but again, even if there are only back-end changes, a change log should still be published because a change log is not only a log of what changed, but an audit trail of sorts that we (the end users) can look at to confirm the legitimacy of the updates occurring to our security software. As we saw just a few weeks ago, a bug in Windows would have allowed an attacker to sign an update file so that the digital signature appears to be from a trusted provider. I know the odds are slim of something like this happening (until it happens!) but it only takes MBAM a few sec
  6. Ugh! This is the second Component Update in a row without any announcement or notice of any kind. I get that there are no visible changes but that is besides the point. Unless we're talking vaporware something obviously changed. When the major components of my security software is updated I want to know that it's legit. Industry experts will always tell you to make sure that your software is updated regularly. They also tell you to make sure that you know what is being installed and/or updated on your system. For literally every other piece of software on my PC this is a simple matter of going
  7. Okay thanks, my anxiety levels are almost back to normal 🙂
  8. Thanks, I am ... 1.0.19004. So you're 100% sure this is a FP? How do you know for sure ... is it based on the domain, the IP, etc.? Did MBAM post a list somewhere? Just curious. Believe it or not, this is actually the first real-time web detection I have ever received because I'm excruciatingly careful about my browsing habits so needless to say, I almost had a heart attack when that alert popped up ! 😬
  9. I was just updated from Component Package 1.0.810 to 1.0.823. What are the changes in the new version? Thanks!
  10. To calm my rampant anxiety on this issue can someone please just confirm to me that the following notification I received is also part of this false positive problem? I only received it once but that was right before I had to run out to a meeting and this was all I could think about. Here's the log file. I have since update to the latest Update Package and Component Package versions and haven't received any notifications since. This is also one of the false positives related to this thread right? @Zynthesist @Dashke @shadowwar @AdvancedSetup -Software Information- Version: 4.0.4.
  11. I just got this update as well. I appreciate that you guys keep the product updated but I'm definitely not a fan of MBAM application and component updates without release notes. 😲 Remember, this is probably the most important 3rd party application most of us will install on our computers so I'm not really comfortable with "mystery" updates being applied to such a critical component of my computer's security. I assume that 1.0.810 must do something different from 1.0.804. Why not announce it?
  12. The "Regional format" setting for all the machines that exhibited the behavior in the screenshot was set to "English (Canada)". However, I just installed it on a system that was set to "English (United States)" and on that system AdwCleaner correctly pre-selected "English". So @nukecadyou probably have a point. If AdwCleaner doesn't find the system's region code in some internal list it defaults the UI display language to English but doesn't set that language selector accordingly.
  13. I run it at least once a week, so no. It loads new definitions every time you run it as well.
  14. I'm extremely skittish about installing one-off things on my PC. That said, just open AdwCleaner 8.0.1 on a machine where it hasn't been opened before, then check the settings tab. I've seen the same behavior on 2 other Windows 10 PC's so it's very easy to replicate.
  15. Okay so maybe it's just me but can we change the default color of the ring under "Real-Time Protection" if there are 0 detections? Currently if you have 0 detections it's orange which is the same color used for Exploits. Opening that tab always gives me a moment of anxiety when I see the big orange ring until I see "0 Total"! 😀
