Please look around here, www.Apkmirror.com

Thanks very much to MAM for posting that link to find an old version of Malwarebytes !!  I had been struggling with this same problem.  The Malwarebytes support people claimed that none of the older versions are available.

It looks like this is the last version on APKMirror that would work on Android 4.4+

To answer the question from julie80, I believe that you can safely install this old version.  Just be aware that it may not be able to fix new malware that was created since that version was released.  All sectors of the computer industry (including phones) claim that you will have terrifying consequences if you do not buy the latest versions of their hardware and software.  This cycle of built-in obsolescence is just a scam to take your money.  They try to force us to buy new products by making the new products incompatible with the old ones so they can sell us the same slightly updated products over and over with each generation.

Just because the these corporations do not support old versions if their software, that is not a good reason to prevent users from having access to them. Many companies allow people with older devices to download and use the older software after support for that software ends. Reputable companies have nothing to fear from customers who use their old unsupported software.

Because it is not officially available. It is also not supported from that site or any other site. The file could very well be infected and contain other code along with the Malwarebytes program, we simply don't know.

You also have to disable security to install an APK which that alone can potentially be dangerous and is not recommended at all.

Generally speaking, at some point companies remove support due to potential liability. It costs a lot of money to continue to support or make available and be held liable for ancient software and is not a good business strategy for anyone.

Thank you
