  1. Is there now or will there be a Browser Extension add-on for Internet Explorer 11?
  2. I read in today's newsletter your advice to have a password manager.  I've been reluctant up until now to install one because it seems that giving all my passwords  to an outside entity increases rather than decreases the possibility of a breach since the outside database would be an obvious target for a hacker whereas my own little Win 10 Credential Manager only has a one in many, many millions chance of being hacked. Nevertheless Microsoft has made Win 10 Credential Manager a nightmare by not allowing the user to reverse the yes/no save option after the first entry. If Malwarebytes were to recommend a specific password manager that it considers safe, I would reconsider. Does Malwarebytes have a password manager recommendation?

I do not believe they are going to make a version of the browser extension for IE unfortunately (being an IE11 user myself, I feel your pain).  I spoke with the Developers about IE11 support and it was explained to me that IE and ActiveX are too different from Chrome and FIrefox for an IE version of the extension to be feasible.  I'm also sure that with official Windows 7 support from Microsoft coming to an end next year, that this too is a factor in their decision.

With regards to password managers, it may not be as bad as you think.  While it is in a way a single point of failure, at the same time the good password managers take additional measures to ensure that your passwords are secure.  You can find out more and also learn about alternatives to a password manager if you still aren't convinced that you should use one by reading the information in this Malwarebytes Labs blog article.  You'll also find some good tips on keeping your passwords secure in this Malwarebytes Labs blog article.  Malwarebytes also recently published this Malwarebytes Labs blog article which is all about the latest phishing attack methods and includes more info on things like 2-factor authentication and password managers including info on the benefits and risks involved.

I hope that helps and if there's anything else we might assist you with please let us know.
