Trouble logging in to ???

Recommended Posts

I keep getting told to verify my account. MyMalwarebytes will not accept my login, and not the main login. They must have screwed up something. PLEASE HELP

I have two lifetime licenses and I just added a new subscription for a new laptop.

When someone answers this, I can send email adderess used. Waiting forever for support to answer could cost more problems.

My ticket # 3528761

Thanks for posting in the Malwarebytes for Windows Help forum.

If you are having technical issues with our Windows product, please do the following:

Malwarebytes Support Tool - Advanced Options

This feature is designed for the following reasons:

  • For use when you are on the forums and need to provide logs for assistance
  • For use when you don't need or want to create a ticket with Malwarebytes
  • For use when you want to perform local troubleshooting on your own

How to use the Advanced Options:

  1. Download Malwarebytes Support Tool
  2. Double-click mb-support-X.X.X.XXXX.exe to run the program
    • You may be prompted by User Account Control (UAC) to allow changes to be made to your computer. Click Yes to consent.
  3. Place a checkmark next to Accept License Agreement and click Next
  4. Navigate to the Advanced tab
  5. The Advanced menu page contains four categories:
    • Gather Logs: Collects troubleshooting information from the computer. As part of this process, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (FRST) is run to perform a complete diagnosis. The information is saved to a file on the Desktop named mbst-grab-results.zip and can be added as an email attachment or uploaded to a forum post to assist with troubleshooting the issue at hand.
    • Clean: Performs an automated uninstallation of all Malwarebytes products installed to the computer and prompts to install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows afterwards. The Premium license key is backed up and reinstated. All user configurations and other data are removed. This process requires a reboot.
    •  Repair System: Includes various system-related repairs in case a Windows service is not functioning correctly that Malwarebytes for Windows is dependent on. It is not recommended to use any Repair System options unless instructed by a Malwarebytes Support agent.
    • Anonymously help the community by providing usage and threat statistics: Unchecking this option will prevent Malwarebytes Support Tool from sending anonymous telemetry data on usage of the program.
  6. To provide logs for review click the Gather Logs button
  7. Upon completion, click OK
  8. A file named mbst-grab-results.zip will be saved to your Desktop
  9. Please attach the file in your next reply.
  10. To uninstall all Malwarebytes Products, click the Clean button.
  11. Click the Yes button to proceed. 
  12. Save all your work and click OK when you are ready to reboot.
  13. After the reboot, you will have the option to re-install the latest version of Malwarebytes for Windows.
  14. Select Yes to install Malwarebytes.
  15. Malwarebytes for Windows will open once the installation completes successfully.

I just had the same type problem. After seeing some people having their licenses blacklisted, I logged into my account at Malwarebytes,  verified that all 5 licenses were listed and that the 3 currently in use Device was up to date with no extra devices listed. After that I logged out of my account.

I got back on the computer several hours later and got the following message:

"To prevent unauthorized users from accessing your Malwarebytes account, we stopped the sign in attempt below:

Date: 2021-07-23

IP address:

Location: United States, Atascadero

If this was you, finish signing in to your account using the verification code below:


If this was not you, we suggest changing your password immediately as someone may be trying to access your account."

I was not blocked from my account the first time but thought I better try to log in. Used the Verification Code from the e-mail and tried to log in -"Verification Code is incorrect". I clicked the arrow at the top of the "Verify your identity" window to go back. Tried to log in with the Verification Code from a second e-mail -"Verification Code is incorrect" again. Repeat above for third failure with a third e-mail/code. Finally, on the 4th try with the 4th e-mail code I was able to log in successfully and log out normally. Now I guess I watch my e-mail to see if I get another bogus log in blocked message from Malwarebytes.

I hope this will add fire to the above request by AdvancedSetup for someone to investigate

I just noticed that the date of the e-mail notice above says 7/23 when it was 2:24 pm 7/22 US Pacific time

The time on the mail server is used which rarely will match your own time.

I don't know the exact amount of time but you only have a very specific time period to use that code or it will time out and not match.

The system is trying to ensure that only authorized members are able to access the site as there are those that try to use passwords from old hacked websites in an effort to see if they can get in.

Just to add to dagar74's comment..... I logged in several times to my account midday on Thursday. Although I was not blocked from logging in (or asked for a verification code to log in) I received 3 log in verification emails Thursday night. I came to check forums because I am concerned about the possibility that my login is compromised.... but it is also hard to imagine dagar74 and I seeing very similar ghost login/verification emails.
