My cell phone had issued. Thanks to Malwarebytes Team.Its doing daughter was telling me that I tested her the same message 5 times today.and on het number it reads. +562 then the other numbers.that's when I needed to get spyware. Amen

Doesn't Work

Installed this and ran first scan it sat on the scanning page for over a hour!! and never completed the scan! Not worth installing, it will not finish the scan so you will never be protected. :-[ :'( {and a Battery hog.}

Steve Maag

Worked once

It stopped the phone from going to the Google app store every time i tried doing the camera went to the app store, try to make a call went to the app store. I downloaded this and the first scan stopped it for 1 day. Now its doing it again and this app lets it happen. I'm deleting it.

Ahmad Vawaid Sulthon

A bit better than AVG in scanning, but wait, this app cant delete all malware in /system/app as bad as AVG. Think about it, if malwares can break into my system, why the hell you cant force-remove them?

Karen Levy


Had an infected app that other anti virus and anti malware apps found but couldn't get rid of. This app had no problem at all. Took 10 seconds to get rid of it. Great!

Solid Antivirus Suite

Malwarebytes Anti-virus is the software to go to for Desktop security; offering extremely high detection rates, often outperforming expensive subscription software! So for my Android phone this is essential. Light and easy to use suits me fine.

Giving you another try.

Big fan of this dev. Last time I used app it destroyed my battery and stopped opening at all. One week test.

Bob Morris

Constantly crashes

Was good but with recent updates it is constantly crashing. Seems to be constantly scanning and everytime an app updates it just freezes and needs to restart. UPDATE 15/12/15 Just reinstalled & it doesn't even complete an initial scan without crashing. Tried 3 times, uninstalling again. UPDATE 2 In response to developers reply new version dowmloaded & installed. Unfortunately it still crashes (multiple times) without completing initial scan.

Loved it

I installed this to remove virus malware in my infected pc and it's very effective. Now i will try to use in my mobile,. Great job malwarebyte my life saver.

Joe Casillas

does the thinking

this thing is telling me what I'm thinking AND what i should do about it!! i am uninstalling anything else (i thought)was doing that for me.

Objectified Cross

Eating up battery life everytime it updates by running a full scan. No option to disable this feature or change it to monthly scans only. Not every single hour.

Ron Helvey

I'd rate this app higher if it didn't keep telling me I have "security issues" just because I want to leave my gps turned on! I'm a professional driver and need gps ON!

Misty Chamberlain


The only thing that I really don't like that it asks me to turn off my location and I won't do that. It's a great app, very simple to navigate and it scans it for you.

Geoffrey Hughes

Due to limitations without root and general limitations on android 6 I can't recommend the reliability of any malware scanner as they don't have /rw to \system so it's reliability is limited too user directories sadly. Update: This is not say they are crappy, no they are required and they work well this in one in particular is the better of the bunch like its PC counterpart does what it needs too without a thousand other services running you won't ever use. Just be mindful that no app has access to the system partition and if you somehow get hacked and a virus is injected only a full system wipe will fix that on Android 6.

Jim Chong


I would like to see a SCAN button on the home page.. Should not be keep opening the Dashboard to find the scanner option.. Thanks.

Won't update database, app always thinks I'm offline. I will try again one day when its got past in house beta.

Tommy Stivers

Beautiful and Easy

Couldn't have asked for a more simple to use yet powerful malware killer. I'd give it six stars if I could.

So Far So Good...

I have something that I class as "malware" on my device. It takes over the whole screen with fake Google pages telling me that my phone is infected,click on a button to get an anti virus app,NOT this app! Other. times its full page ads . It's very hard to get off the screen without pressing anything. It does it in the middle of Netflix ,games,etc . This app and all the ad detection ones say "I've no issues"!!!! I'D LOVE TO KNOW WHAT AN ISSUE IS! THIS IS RUINING MY PHONE USE. NONE OF THESE APPS WORK.

Matthew McGowan
