Malwarebytes g2a werid key.

Recommended Posts

I wanted to ask suppoort but there was no option so i write on forum. Thx for reading.
Hello, I bought a key for the malwarebytes program on g2a. The seller sent me the key and product ID. However, when I wanted to enter the account with a subscription through the program, it took me to the login page where some email without a password was entered in advance. Of course, I gave negative feedback to the seller and appealed to the support.

Now my questions.
1. Are these g2a and other auctions keys legal?
2.If I activated my malwarebytes after entering the key and id product, can someone send me some viruses via cloud or something? Can this person see something having access to the subscription (main account) and giving me only the key and product id? I don't know how it works, but I quickly deactivated the account and want to buy a legal key somewhere. Greetings and sorry that I wrote so.

There are no legit lifetime keys sold on those sites.

Buy legal subscriptions here https://www.malwarebytes.com/pricing/

G2a is not an authorized seller. Nor is eBay and other sites lie it.

You  Malwarebytes account online should have a good password.

The purpose of having a legit licensed version of Malwarebytes is to prevent malware.

Great link to generate a strong password:  https://ae7.st/g/index.html

 

Use Password Management software

Bitwarden
KeePass Password Safe

Make sure you use a strong master password
Then set the key transformation settings (the link below helps provide information on how to choose good settings)
https://pthree.org/2016/06/29/further-investigation-into-scrypt-and-argon2-password-hashing
KeePass Password Manager: Full Detailed Setup (good YouTube video on setup and using Keepass but choose the Argon2 method for Key transformation)

I would also add that the reason an email address was entered automatically when you went to log in is due to the fact that each license key is associated with the email address that was used for the purchase, however the actual account at My.Malwarebytes.com does not exist until you have created it by signing up using your email address and creating a password for the account.  Further details on how all of this works can be found in this support articlethis support articlethis support article, and this support article.

If you ever need to look up your account info or license key and cannot retrieve it that way you may contact Malwarebytes Support directly by filling out the form on the bottom of this page.

The email showing up is the one that was used when the key was originally purchased.  It does not mean that they have created an account at My.Malwarebytes.com and no, they won't be able to access your account or your password; you just need to register your license with your own email address, and to do that just fill out the form on the bottom of the page in the last link in my post above to contact Support and they will help you to do this.  They can get the license key tied to your own email address so that you won't have to worry about anyone else having any of your information.  This assumes that the license key is valid and not pirated (some illegitimate sellers will resell keys multiple times or use keys that are pirated to sell to unsuspecting customers).  Support will be able to check and verify that the key is valid and that it isn't being used by anyone else and then get it tied to your own email address so that you will be able to control it using your own email address and password at My.Malwarebytes.com.

I have to remark.   G2A does not sell legitimate licenses.  period.   Any attempt to activate with one from G2A  will ultimately be tagged as invalid.
