    Hello, Trooper, yes it does, it is worth the money, and personally, I can relax a little bit more with Malwarebytes on the system, My AV is Dr. Web Security Space(lifetime Subscription).
    Thanks for your answer.:thumb:

    Great. Does Malwarebytes on Android provide web (browsing) protection?

    Is this about Malware bytes version3 or Malwarebytes for Android version3? The title suggests the second option, but I have a feeling it's not.

    Hi,

    I opened the first link in the first post but did not see the US Dollar cost of the software. Also, what is in-app per item cost, I don't understand.

    Because the subscription is a in-app purchase instead of purchase before you download. Afaik the only possible purchase is a 1 yr license so that is the in-app per item cost.

    I started with the trial but then I got addicted and purchased the pro version, It is an outstanding piece of software.:)
