Did I miss a mailing that announced it?

Good question.

https://www.malwarebytes.com/products/ positions Malwarebytes Browser Guard as supplemental to desktop security and mobile security. However there's a long tradition of people assuming that a desktop solution will be comprehensive, so I suspect that:

  • many readers will not page down

– many people simply do not discover Malwarebytes Browser Guard.

From the blog post Browser Guard combats privacy abuse, tracking, clickbait, and scammers | Malwarebytes Labs:

I have Malwarebytes Premium. Do I still need Browser Guard?

Browser Guard does have extra protection features, as well as …

 

– quite verbose (five paragraphs, 163 words) followed by a large animated GIF.

In retrospect it might have been better to have an unambigous "Yes" plus a link to relevant product information. However …

… the product page https://www.malwarebytes.com/browserguard/ does not mention that it can/should be installed alongside desktop or mobile solutions. This page might benefit from a simple table – not too verbose – that lays out the additional protection when Malwarebytes Browser Guard is installed alongside a desktop or mobile solution.

No mention of Malwarebytes Browser Guard at https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/ or https://www.malwarebytes.com/premium/.

☑ https://www.malwarebytes.com/chromebook/#cms-section-2 does recommend installing the extension.

The press release Malwarebytes Press Center - News & Events | Free Malwarebytes Browser Guard Combats Privacy Abuses, Tracking, Clickbait, Unwanted Ads and Tech Support Scammers:

  • described Malwarebytes Browser Guard as a comprehensive browser security solution
  • did not hint that the solution is supplemental (to desktop and mobile solutions).

Side notes

No RSS or XML feed for https://press.malwarebytes.com/ or https://blog.malwarebytes.com/. This can make it quite difficult for people to catch up on things.

UX: the LOAD MORE button at https://blog.malwarebytes.com/ is unnecessarily far from the foot of the page, so I can't simply key End before using the button. It's necessary to key Page Up after going to the end.

The product page describes Malwarebytes Browser Guard Premium but there's no such product (it's free, not premium).
