Cant purchase the Malwarebytes app in Amazon

Recommended Posts

I am unable to buy the premium Malwarerbytes android app in the Amazon app store.

I downloaded the Amazon appstore app and searched for "Malwarebytes". This returned zero results. I was unable to find Malwarebytes app with the official Amazon app. So I used the browser and went to amazon.com, found the Malwarebytes App downloaded and installed it. This is verrsion 2.1.0.5. There is nowhere to purchase the premium app and there is no update from Amazon past this version. There is nowhere in the app to purchase a premium license.

I do not have Google Play, I do not want Google Play. I want to purchase the app from the Amazon store.

How can I purchase the app on Amazon? How can I get the same price as the Play Store? $11.99 annual subscription for one android  license?

Hi @bugbytes,

Here's a link I found on Amazon to version 3.3.0.8: Malwarebytes for Android on Amazon

You can purchase a multi platform key on our website to use on Android, but it's 39.99 annually: Malwarebytes Pricing

However, if you buy two licenses (maybe one for your PC and one for Android), it's only $10 more.

Unfortunately, if you want a single subscription for $11.99 annually on Android only, you must purchase via Google Play.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Nathan

If you do not have Google Services on the phone, you can only install 2.1.0.5 from the Amazon Store even though the Amazon Malwarebytes app urlversion  you Gave me shows  3.3.0.8. The Amazon page I linked to is the same page.

Hi @bugbytes,

What Android OS are you running?  If it's an older OS, only our older versions will work properly on the device.  The Amazon app store may recognize this and install an older version.

...I have tried Lineage OS also which is also Android 8.1. It doesn't matter. If Google Play is not installed, the Amazon Malwarebytes app always defaults to v2.1.0.5

Hi @wahidovic,

As discussed in Post #2, the only other option if you don't buy from Google Play is buying a license directly through our website, but it's $39.99 annually to buy it there.  However, you can install from Amazon and after the 30 day trial, Malwarebytes for Android continues to run as a free malware scanner.  You just won't have the premium features.
