Disable Stop Protection

Recommended Posts

I am curious if the ability for users to "Stop Protection" on the Anti-Exploit will be disabled? We don't want to let the users to be able to Stop Protection whenever. The whole point of protecting a cooperate user is to stop them from doing the irresponsible thing. So is there a way to disable it or is this a feature that is being worked on in the next build?

Hi Scoutt,


there's a few answers to your question:


1- The user can only stop protection if they are an admin user. If they are running as a limited user account (LUA) they cannot stop it.

2- If you deploy MBAE from the Malwarebytes Management Console, even if the user stops MBAE, the Management Server will overrule it and turn it back on.

3- Yes we are working on adding more protection so that even admin users on the endpoint cannot stop it.

Thanks Pedro,


It was also mentioned to me that I can hide the icon and run silently/limited. That may be good for 99% of our users. It would be good if yes, you stop even admin from turning it off, but also maybe add a password protection so super admin can unlock it to turn it off, but still have the MGMT turn it back on after a short while. just a suggestion.


And as for #2, that's my other thread, it doesn't work on Windows 10 :)
