Just updated to 2.4.0 and just saw a new protection option enabled called "Advanced Skimmer Protection" and wanted to know what does that new protection do, and as i'm seeing that involves cards numbers also wanted to have a little bit more of information about that regarding privacy.

Thanks in advance.

@Xauma95 it's a means of preventing malicious scripts from picking up your payment information.  We do absolutely nothing to identify or work with the actual data.

I thought while paying for something on an encrypted site with ssl certificate meant that the conection was secure so no one else could see or do anything with that data. I'm not an expert on this matter as you can see hahaha.

And as you say anything is stored or saved by Malwarebytes, right?

If there's a malicious script running on the site in question it could pick up the data as you key it in.

Correct, Malwarebytes does NOT do anything to identify or use data you enter.

OK, thank you so much for the info. Great work as always
