How do I turn off Real-Time Protection?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I just upgraded to version

I had been using version 1, I don't remember the exact decimals.

Anyway, I don't want Malwarebytes running in the background. I just want to manually run it every few months. 

So, is there is a way to turn off Real-Time Protection? I can't figure out how to turn it off.

Also, once Real-Time Protection is turned off, will that prevent Malwarebytes from running any processes in the background when the app itself is not running?

It's all right for you then, I cannot turn mine on!

Real-time protection cannot be turned out unless you either 1) are within the 30-day Premium trial that starts when you first install the software, or 2) have purchased Premium and activated the software with your license key.

If either one of those is true and you still can't turn on real-time protection, please send me a direct message so I can help you troubleshoot further without filling up this thread with off-topic posts.
