    What is the benefit of premium?

    • +6 votes

      To my knowledge it is active realtime protection of web,exploit,malware and ransomware vs scanning whenever you schedule it or whenever you think you need to.

    Thanks for this. Just bought one

    for more devices? if this hack works, I seriously doubt Malwarebytes

      Well technically it isn't, given that at the time of placing your order you can increase the order quantity as well

    •  

      Tried. It worked. 1 x Licence code activates for the number of devices you donate for.

    This or Kaspersky internet security?

    Probably a dumb question, but where do enter the discount code?
    Found it! Just click on the RE-OPEN THE MARLWAREBYTES WEBSITE link, the discount code option doesnt show if you have already added the Premium package to your cart before getting the discount code.

    How much of a savings is this? Is Malwarebytes normally very expensive? I'm going to finally get this after pirating it for years, as I'd rather pay than be bothered to do all the cracking and stuff again.

    Are we able to buy multiples and 'stack' these like a PS+ subscription?

    • +1 vote

      You can purchase up to 5 licenses with the 4 year expiration (totaling ~$40AUD).

      • +2 votes

        And is there a time limit for when you need to activate each one? Wonder whether the potential of executing at the end of each licence would work if you can't stack one on top of the other.

        • +1 vote

          They are all activated at the same time. You are provided with one license key, which can be attached to max 5 devices (the number of licenses you purchased).

        • +1 vote

          Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but from what I can tell, each license expires 4 years from the date of purchase, and not from when it's activated. So buying multiple licenses is the same as buying a license for multiple devices.

    Anybody else stuck at "Confirming Student Status…" after clicking the link on the Malwarebytes website?

    Do you guys think I should get an antivirus for my mac? I'm new to Mac and can't seem to figure out if mac needs antivirus? Before this Windows defender had me protected on Windows 10.

      Mac is generally really good with preventing viruses. But at $8 you may as well, just in case you switch to PC in the future.

    I bought a deal from ozbargain a few years ago for lifetime premium MB. After a year MB wanted me to pay again. Turned out that the reseller was not an authorized seller. MB ended up gaving me the lifetime licence

    Thanks OP, grabbed this bargain.

  •  

    Just purchased it, Im abit skeptical i just gave the scan a run and it only took less than 5minutes to scan my whole laptop. Considering it took hours for previous protection. Is this a older or cheaper version?

    •  

      Did you do a hyper scan?

      [Edit]

      Benchmark:

      Free

      Time: 9m:32s

      Items Scanned: 721184

      Premium

      Time: 9m:00s

      Items Scanned: 721310

      •  

        Where is the hyperscan on premium? It just says click scan thats all. Cannot customise the different types of scans

        •  

          If you're on a macOS there is only one scan type. If you're on Windows click the Scan tab on the left side menu, under Dashboard.

    •  

      They're usually really quick scans for me too and I didn't buy this version. I'm guessing it's faster nowadays with all our SSD's? Not 100% sure.

      From Malwarebytes FAQ:

      Customers often ask if Malwarebytes on Mac even scanned their computer, because it's over so quickly - less than a few seconds in some cases.

      Malwarebytes for Mac is not broken, though; it's really just that fast! The reason is that Malwarebytes is performing whats called a "quick scan." Rather than scanning the entire hard drive for files that are known to only be installed in specific locations, it simply looks for those things in those specific locations.

      For example, when looking for a specific Safari extension, it doesn't make sense to look for it in the Applications folder, or the System folder, or any of the various hidden Unix folders containing hundreds of thousands of files. >We only look for such a file where it makes sense to look: in Safari's Extensions folder. In this way, we not only keep Malwarebytes for Mac clean, lean and fast, but we also limit the possibilities for false positives.

      my hyperscan takes 2minutes and scans 300K Objects
      that's on a pcie nvme

    Awesome find, got 2! Thanks OP

    If you have your own email domain, or work in Infosec or It sector you can apply for the TechBench.

    The applications are screened, but you get 5 technician (perpetual with partnership) licenses. Access to the other tools too.
    The license is good if you have your own small network: I've installed on my server and 2 endpoints, and my mobile.
    Then you can also start reselling licenses too.

    •  

      I've been thinking about this as well. What does it mean by 40-72% Margins (based on volume)? and is it $375 a year or month?

      •  

        You purchase bulk licenses, then sell them individually, or however you see fit. The more you buy the larger your discount, a higher profit margin for yourself.

        The Standard TechBench membership is good enough if your client base is home or small business.

        If you're dealing with malware everyday, or have a huge corporate ecosystem, then the Premium TechBench would be better.
        The 25 Licenses resold would cover the membership fee anyhow.
        You could sell them at $30, half the cost of what is asked on the site $87.99/Annual.. and make a profit.
        You just need 20+ friends. Which for Standard Nerds, is probably a huge ask. I have zero friends.

        •  

          I could even buy bulk now and create an OzBargain Malwarebytes Sale

        •  

          I forgot to mention that you also get access to the techbench forum area that has specialized discussion, remediation and support

    Bloody hell, just paid $89 for 2 single year licenses yesterday. Not that I have edu email address.

  • -1 vote

    It looks like a scam to me. I paid my cash got an email address and password. went to malwarebytes and had to pick a place of education, I did then had to get my new email address verified. Went to microsoft mail logged in with new account and hit the verify link which only took me to student beans and requiring login with email address at which point the new edu email is rejected as an invalid email. Doh why do we bother chasing scams?

        Yeah eventually did for me but seeing that you responded now means I can't edit my post. I'll blame it on being a senior :o)

      I think it's because you paid for a .edu e-mail which doesn't qualify for studentbean. I registered my Australian and Canadian e-mail accounts from actual educational institutions just fine. Though I suggest you to re-register/re-verify your account. You can register with whatever e-mail you want with studentbean. Just need a qualifying .edu account to verify the status. Just copy and paste links into the same tab in case you have some privacy controls with cookies that may be contributing to the problems.

      The $7.91 that you "pay" is actually a donation towards providing technology to the disadvantaged.
