Better organisation for exclusions and reports

Recommended Posts

I'd love it if Malwarebytes made is so the exclusion area is better organised. For example most security programs tend to have file exclusions and web exclusions separate.

I do like that there's just one tab for exclusions as sometimes security suites do have certain exclusions in completely different areas. I also like the simplicity of the add exclusion button which after clicking you then choose the exclusion type - it's simple but very easy to use. What I would like though is a way to view the types of exclusions separately. Currently you can organise them by type but it would be good if you could view only a specific type. This could be done by having separate areas or simply a drop down list where you can pick the specific type. A way to search for stuff would also be great.

The report area has the same issue and would benefit from being able to see just a specific type.

 

Thanks

Peter

Thanks for the suggestions.  I like the idea of a drop-down menu.  It could perhaps be set to something like "all" by default, which would make it display the items the way it does now, but perhaps other options could be added to filter by type so that when the user selects a different option from the drop down menu it then displays only the exclusions/logs/events etc. of that type.  That seems to me to be the simplest way to add this functionality without overhauling the entire structure of the UI/tables, while at the same time keeping it simple as you said.

I also agree that a search function could be useful, especially for protection events/logs as those tend to expand considerably over time while exclusions may be pretty static once the user is done with their initial customization of their settings.

I'll provide your suggestions to the product team and hopefully someday soon we'll see some functionality like this integrated into the product.  If you have any further ideas or feedback for us please don't hesitate to post.

Thanks :)

Hi again. Is this something that Malwarebytes plans to add anytime soon? I have Malwarebyes set to alert me about PUPs as i like this option but have a few PUPs in exclusion area that i need. I also have some sites in there so the exclusions can luck messy and would love to see it get tidied up.

Thanks again

I don't know if/when they might be planning to implement this feature at the moment unfortunately.  I do know that they have a pretty big backlog of items that they're working on right now for upcoming versions/releases so it probably won't be happening soon, but I did bring it up to them so if they are able to prioritize it they will.  It's just a matter of getting the time and resources available in relation to the other features and fixes they have on the roadmap currently for the product.
