On the Malwarebytes 5.0 Beta main screen it is suggesting I would have a default of Sweden if I was subscribed, and I live in the USA.

That is just a generic screen for BETA purposes. I am sure it will have your location correct when it comes out of BETA.

Mine is the same

I thought Stockholm was an advertised VPN node location.

When Malwarebytes 5.0 comes out in full, will this pane be able to be removed?   I generally use Tor for anything I don't want going through unencrypted by my ISP, and web trackers are not an issue in that platform since the browser forgets everything after every session.

In the interest of honesty, it should be noted that VPN services don't protect against cookie-based tracking unless the service blocks the tracking sites entirely on their networks.

The entire what will be and not be is still under development.

If in the end,  if it is still there without the ability ti hide it, we will just have to accept it and ignore it as just another marketing tool promoting it.
