Possible False Positive with Malwarebytes for Android

Recommended Posts

I have Amazon's Appstore and Malwarebytes on both my phone (LG G5) and Tablet (Nvidia Shield K1). Both are running Android 7.0. Only difference is on my phone's Amazon Appstore was installed from Google Play Store and on my tablet I installed the APK from Amazon's website (https://www.amazon.com/gp/mas/get/android/ref=get_appstore?ie=UTF8&appName=appstore&ref_=mas_sms_dl)

^Exact URL used

Any scan results do not indicate anything on either device, however after turning my tablet's screen off for several minutes and turning it back on I keep getting ransomware notifications from Malwarebytes about the Amazon Appstore (I'm assuming because it is not from the play store and has control over the apps installed from it in some fashion)

Wouldn't be too big of a problem if Malwarebytes didn't add an HTML file to my tablet's home screen every time. I'd would uninstall Amazon Appstore from my tablet but, being my gaming tablet and running games smoother than my phone, I really don't want to (nice to have access to apps I bought from Amazon on my tablet too. And some of the free apps are not available in the Play Store for my tablet, but are on Appstore and install/run fine on my tablet for example)

Anyway to get Malwarebytes Mobile to ignore Appstore when installed from Amazon's site or can someone from Support look into it and fix it in a future database update?
