Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile is a mobile version of a very popular security program for Windows systems known from PCs. The application allows you to protect the Android system against viruses, malware, as well as checking information on how installed and used applications interfere with the privacy of the user.
After the first launch the application recommends a quick scan, thanks to which it can not only search for malicious software, but also collects information about the activities of other, also harmless applications. The mobile version of Malwarebytes performs an automatic daily scan by default, the user can, according to their preferences, modify the schedule, specify the days and times in which the scheduled scan should take place. Each scan is saved in a history that can be viewed at any time. The antivirus also updates itself fully automatically every hour. Also in this case, the user can change the frequency (every 1, 3 or 6 hours), and also completely disable this option. The program works in real time, so it also scans newly installed applications.
In addition to scanning for malicious software, Malwarebytes provides a lot of information about your applications. The menus allowing to view them have been divided into all and currently working applications. In the case of the latter, it is possible to close the process, as well as check the amount of memory used and the processor time. MBAM also offers a privacy manager, which presents the list of applications requiring entitlements such as access to user’s location, call monitoring, etc. Additional security audit allows to pay attention to the most important aspects of settings such as turning off the NFC, debugging mode, and appropriate security lock screen. The application is available for free.
