Introducing Malwarebytes Browser Guard


Recommended Posts

Distinguished Members,

Over the course of a year and a half, you have immensely helped us in polishing Malwarebytes Browser Extension BETA. 

Together, we have resolved many false positives, compatibility issues, and added feature improvements. It is time for Malwarebytes Browser Extension to come out of BETA. 

Starting today, Malwarebytes Browser Extension will be called “Malwarebytes Browser Guard”. We will continue to offer it as a free product including the outstanding browser level web protection capabilities.

Malwarebytes Browser Guard provides new features like:

New UI/UX: 

  • All controls on the main dashboard (no more dedicated settings web page)
  • Visibility on what is being blocked on the current page (lists all blocked ads and trackers)
  • New UX improvements under “Allow list” page


  • View historical blocked data numbers for Malware, Scams, PUPs, and Ads/Trackers
  • Selectable date ranges

User Guide for Malwarebytes Browser Guard can be found here: https://support.malwarebytes.com/docs/DOC-3446

Again, we would like to thank you all for your continued support.

What is the released version?
v2.0.0 is the released version that contains new UI/UX and renamed product. Chrome will automatically update Browser Guard to the latest version as they are released. 

Upgrade from BETA to Guard? 
Product upgrade will be transparent, without disruption in service or loss of “Allow list”.

Why do we need email ID? 
We are beginning to collect email addresses to improve Malwarebytes specific product communications with our customers.  We will not, under any circumstances, share your email address with other individuals or organizations.
Important: During new installations users may be asked in the product UI to provide their email address in order to activate the product.  This can be any email (not limited to Gmail). Not everyone will see this email screen as it is being still tested with two different user groups. 

Why am I asked to provide permission?
The permission "Communicate with cooperating websites" is because certain sites use ad serving techniques that are intrusive in nature and our ad blocking breaks the user experience on these sites. This permission allows Browser Guard to work with these sites interactively to block ads without affecting any content.
