Extension added value to MBAM?

Recommended Posts

1.  If I'm running MBAM Premium, does the extension do additional things?

2.  So I'm presently running uBlock Origin, Bitdefender TrafficLight, Norton Safe Web and Windows Defender Browser Protection.  Does Malwarebytes for Chrome do things that these capabilities don't?

 

Thank you,

v/r Frank

Malwarebytes for Chrome also includes detection for clickbait articles and fake news sites, which I don't believe those other extensions do (I've only used uBlock Origin though)

As well as heuristic-based detection and blocking of browser-lockers typically used by Tech Support Scammers.

It also blocks known trackers which would typically monitor your browsing habits across the web (Google, Akamai etc.).  I'm not certain if it blocks the trackers from Facebook and the like, but it may.  I don't know if any of the other items you mentioned block those, though the most likely one to do so would probably be uBlock.
