MBAM license management via malwarebytes.com?


Recommended Posts

So I've got about 9 non-business MBAM licenses to manage. Currently I'm using notepad to keep an oversight which license is installed on which machine. If something changes, I have to remind myself that I have to look up the text file, and register the change. It's a hassle as you can imagine.

In addition there's no way to deactivate a license remotely. Remote deactivation is useful in the case of device theft, or say a motherboard failure on someone's laptop, and you don't want to go through the trouble of opening up the device -> taking out system drive -> attaching system drive to another device -> boot up and deactivate license.


The solution I'd like to suggest, is to set up a product account system (on say malwarebytes.com), so that users can create an account and bind/manage their licenses to/from. Managing in the sense of that each license shows if it is active or not, optionally on which machine said license is active via hardware-ID or of some sort, and having the power to disable a license remotely. Like similar to how Microsoft implemented such a licensing management system during the W10 anniversary update, allowing users to bind their W10 licenses to their accounts, and keep an overview. Also preferably the account access authentication to be U2F based, with Yubikey support, for solid user security.

That's why I propose challenge/response authentication based on asymmetric cryptography based on U2F in conjunction with yubikey support. Yubikeys have a secure element, which safeguards the private key against theft. Which is to say that if a bad person wants to get access to your account, it has to physically steal your yubikey first.

I too would like some way to manage my licenses on-line. I just had to rebuild a PC and when I went to apply the key it told me that I was out of licenses. $$$ NOT GOOD
