  1. Indeed, but something is working somewhere, sorta. In the wee EST hours of 06/14, I checked Play Store for any pending updates, and there was one for Malwarebytes waiting for me, before Play Store or Malwarebytes notified me (and my subscription is through MB itself). I thought "woohoo, it finally hit whatever server serves me" and uploaded. Phone says it now has Only later did it occur to me to check the MBAM app in Play Store, which as it turns out, still says from April. Incidentally, I also have the free version of Kaspersky without real-time protection; I don't
  2. Well, that later date appears to be now. Sorta. Google Play Store still shows But this morning there was an update waiting for me to load and phone says it was
  3. As I understand it, this is normal for the free version of YouTube. The timing depends on the particular video and how long you've been watching any videos without being exposed to an ad. If you hit the "<" navigation button of your phone during one of those ads, it may stop the ad and your video will resume about where it stopped. Or you could just let it play and rest your eyes by looking away from the device 🙃
  4. For Malwarebytes for Android, I started with the free premium trial from Google Play Store. That's updated 12/13/19. Then on 04/29/20 I purchased the premium license through Malwarebytes' site, which only had a button that sent me straight to Google Play Store. There was some confusing stuff after that, since all I could do was "open" the app, and after I navigated back to Malwarebytes' site, I find a page that want's me to enter my license key, which I don't have. Then I get the email with it and try to enter it but get an error that says that key is already registered. I flo
  5. So if I had gone through Google Play, I could add as many devices as I want, and the price won't go up? Going through MB costs more to start, appears to limit devices to 10 (IIRC), and each one raises the price. And when I signed up, I thought having a license key was crucial and easier to deal with if I went direct. So now the only advantage of doing that is in some vague warning I saw (can't remember exactly where) that said some functionality may be limited if purchasing through Google Play!?
  6. Um...why? Seems like this would be something worth protecting against. And I'd sure like to know from the original poster if it's still being found or not.
  7. So the key point is to enable all permissions. I had this same problem and after one uninstall/reinstall thought I had it licked because the error went away. But after reading all the critical reviews in Google Play Store, many of which described this problem (and to which MB responded only with an unspecific and stock 'look at our Helps'), I was leary of signing up through the app. So instead I went right to settings and did what I wanted with permissions. And then later discovered the in-app signup wouldn't work again. Gave me serious pause about wether I should signup. But eventua
