I thought Lifetime licenses had been discontinued for MBAM


Recommended Posts

Hello and :welcome: :
 

I thought Lifetime licenses had been discontinued for MBAM


They were discontinued, in March 2014.
(A few legitimate resellers continued to sell their remaining stock after that, but those have been long ago exhausted.)

 

and yet I came across this...
 
http://store.downloadcrew.com/p29874-malwarebytes_anti-malware_premium_v2
 
for $29.92 marked down from $49.95
 
does anyone know if this is legitimate?


AFAIK No, it is not.
This site has been mentioned before in the context of invalid licenses.

 

I have included a screen shot for anyone not willing to check the link above


"Caveat emptor."

 

Malwarebytes forum staff may have additional feedback.

 

Thanks for reporting,

I would also have concerns about a vendor that "marks it down" to a price only $5 higher than what you can buy it for directly from Malwarebytes.

 

The "vendor" offers a "lifetime" license for a slightly higher price what used to be the actual cost of a valid, lifetime, 1-PC license.

So, that doesn't seem overly suspicious, by itself?

 

But yes, offering it for only a bit more than the current cost of a valid subscription license, 2 years after lifetime licenses were officially discontinued, is a "red flag".

If you do not heed our advice and get this be warned....If it "seems to work" and some time later it does not, Malwarebytes has NO obligation to fix it if it was not purchased from an Authorized seller or directly from Malwarebytes.

There are no known official lifetime licenses left to sell. There are possibly some that have been horded but yes "Buyer Beware" - if you purchase one and it turns out not to be legit you will need to get your money back from the person or company you purchased from. We are  not currently running anymore amnesty programs for invalid or illegal licenses.

 

Thank you
