Browser Guard Reports Incorrect Device Security


Recommended Posts

I have a Malwarebytes Premium subscription.  However, un Firefox 118.0.2, Browser Guard reports under Full Protection that "Device Security is installed, but only using free version with a button to Upgrade".

Under Microsoft Edge it is reported correctly.  

Please correct the firefox extension/plugin to report accurate information.

"Content Control" and "Import & Export" option has a "lock" icon on it and when clicking on them it says that I have to upgrade to Premium. I have Premium already. Everything else works fine and works fine on Edge too but not on Firefox. Have tested on a clean install of Firefox but I still cant access Content Control and Import & Export. Is there anyone else that have this issue? Any word from Malwarebytes staff on this issue? How do I fix this?

This happened to me also, I have premium but the browser guard was show device scruity as using free version. The only way I could fix this was uninstalling firefox and reinstalling. Then add the browser guard again. Now it's showing fully active and sees I have premium. Bit worrying, I wonder how long it's not been fully protecting my system?
