allow desktop version to detect mobile devices

Recommended Posts

one blind spot I see is that when I tried to scan a mobile device from my computer  today is Malwarebytes didn't detect it, this would be useful in cases where the phone is damaged by malware

Greetings,

Unfortunately it's true that the PC version of Malwarebytes cannot scan mobile devices.  I believe this is primarily because the file systems on those devices are completely different from that of Windows as are the types of threats that affect them.  Also, removing a threat from a mobile device by scanning it from a PC might not work as expected given differences in permissions and how mobile devices store programs and files, however someone more technical from the staff would have to elaborate further as mostly speculation on my part based on my limited understanding of the situation.
