Hello.   :welcome:

Count up the total number of devices you have where you want Premium protection.

The Premium can run on Windows, Android, Chromebook, Mac OS X.   Each device you need Premium for is a seat.   So add them all up.

That is how many seats you need to purchase.   The purchase page has a selection spot for you to choose.

The selection for number of devices is just to the left of the price.

One device means one machine only.   The point is to select the proper number  to match your needs.

Just to add, the reason it mentions up to 10 on the website is because you may purchase up to 10 licenses/seats in a single transaction which would protect 10 devices.  Numbers in excess of 10 would have to be purchased either through separate transactions or by contacting Malwarebytes Business or Sales teams (for example, if you were a reseller/affiliate).  This is why just above where it mentions 10 devices, it notes that the pricing shown is for 3 devices and why it also includes the + and - controls to change the device count where it will also automatically adjust the pricing according to the number of devices you select as shown in the image below:


So basically the Available for up to 10 devices statement is simply a statement of the limit for the maximum number of devices you can purchase licenses for (the same as when you see a purchase quantity limit for an item on any retail website like 'Limit 1 per customer' etc.).

Anyway, I hope this helps to clarify things a bit, and if there is anything else we might assist you with please let us know.

What you're saying doesn't make sense at all. You cannot buy a single device subscription, that option is not available. You can ONLY buy a 10 device subscription. 

I'm asking if that 10 devices is a 'real' 10 devices, e.g. I can install on 10 of my 'windows 10' laptops, or if the 10 devices means 1 windows 10, 1 unix, 1 android, 1 iOS etc so it's possible to protect 10 devices if you have one of the 10 random operating systems they support. (Which is the case elsewhere with certain companies selling 'installs on 4 devices' software).

Please confirm (Assuming you work for Malwarebytes) so I can be sure of the contract I'm getting into. I've been stung before.

@exile360 Whoa, you have a totally different purchase screen to me here in the UK. Yours is pretty obvious what it means. Mine, less so. Also the prices don't relate to each other. You're looking at about $20 per device (maybe that's the half price offer) while in the UK it says £39.99 for 10 devices. As $ and £ are pretty much 1 for 1, it looks like the UK site is very misleading!

My apologies, I was looking at a different part of the site.  You are on the actual purchase page and I didn't realize it.  You can select a different number of devices using the drop-down menu where it shows 10 Devices to select a different number as shown below:


If you cannot, then there must be a bug with the UK purchase page.  Please let us know if that is the case as I only have access to the US page.

Hi Exile360,

OK so the same page now, but still very misleading in the UK. The dropdown has only one entry in it '10 devices' also note the description of the subscription and price here in the UK compared to your screen. Something is definitely not right somewhere.

Yes, that's correct.  It looks like the site is bugged for sure.  Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  I will report this to the web team ASAP.  I'm certain based on the pricing that if you were to proceed with the purchase that they would actually only provide you with a single device license since the transaction itself is handled through a third party e-commerce partner (either Cleverbridge or 2Checkout) so in their system which issues the licenses, based on the pricing it would only register as a single license/device purchase.

lol, as soon as I saw the comment from dcollins, I raced to my PC, went to the malwarebytes store and it's now reverted to the same as the US site. No more 10 for £40. Complete shambles, so I've had to by a couple of licenses for £40 and will just cover two machines. The kids machines can take their chances.

I just hope the software isn't as confusing as their website.
