How do I stop Malwarebytes from blocking an IP ?

Recommended Posts

I use a VPN service and one of the VPN networks I use, I can't connect to because Malwarebytes blocks it. Which means my VPN access to that site is completely shut off.


How can I add an exception to Malwarebytes so I don't got to disable the full program just to get access to one of my VPN networks ?

This is from the help file under ignore list:


Accessing a Blocked Website: In order to bypass and access a potentially malicious website which has been blocked by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, perform the following step.

  1. Navigate the web browser to the blocked website or IP address again.
  2. A balloon tip notification will pop up from the task tray indicating that access to the website has been blocked.
  3. Right-click on the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware tray icon, hover the mouse pointer over to "Add to Ignore List". Left-click on the IP address number that you want to add to the ignore list.


IF you still have a problem someone from support may have to help you.


You can also report the ip under our ip false positives subforum and have it checked to see if it should be removed from our database.

Ok thank you !


I'm happy their a way to fix this as I just did a check on the IP address my VPN provider uses and it seems Malwarebytes has blocked an entire datacenter within Sweden.


I know spammers and malware creators use servers all over the world but, it seems kind of extreme to block an entire datacenter. That a large amount of servers and websites. Like any datacenter their goanna be a  few servers being rented or owned that are used in bad ways but your not goanna have a full datacenter at them things.
