 What’s New in 4.4:

    - Reduced redundancy for Web Blocks when integrated with Browser Guard

I currently have the Malwarebytes Browser Guard v2.3.3 extension installed in my MS Edge v91 browser.  When I launch MS Edge I see the following pop-up.

If I choose "Allow" in that pop-up and allow Malwarebytes Browser Guard to manage my blocked website warnings, is my Malwarebytes Premium v4.4.0 smart enough to automatically take back control of blocked website warnings if I eventually uninstall the Malwarebytes Browser Guard extension?  If I choose "Decline" in that pop-up and then change my mind, is there some setting I can use to reverse that decision and give control of blocked website warnings back to Malwarebytes Browser Guard?

Hi Porthos:

Thanks, that answered my question.  I don't recall seeing that MB Browser Guard setting before but perhaps I was viewing the extension settings from my default Firefox browser instead of MS Edge.
