Mac Malwarebytes scan only takes 10 seconds, is this normal? (Just curious)

Recommended Posts

Hi! So, I'm only curious about this and just wanted to make sure it was normal to settle my nerves. Everyone few hours, I do a scan, since I'm on the free malwarebytes. I've noticed that the scan usually takes 10-15 seconds and it seems a bit too fast to me, but that could just be how it is.

Someone please get back to me soon to soothe my rising nerves.

It is normal; to me at most it lasts 20 seconds and as you can see in the post that I have linked below for me at a certain point lasted between 3 and 4 seconds: read Thomas's answer about it.

Watch this post in which I asked for the very short duration

Unlike many anti-malware scanners, MBAM primarily looks in places where malware is known to be downloaded or installed, rather than repeatedly looking at every file on your drive in places where malware has never been known to exist.
