When Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware protection is running, the Dashboard will indicate that in two ways.

  • A green smiley face with the text 'Your system is fully protected'
  • A green dot under Real-Time Protection with the text 'Anti-Ransomware Protection is enabled'


The icon in the notification tray will be the Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware logo.
