  • Scan result: Check this box if you want Malwarebytes to notify you if no threats were found after a scan. Otherwise, Malwarebytes only notifies you after scans if threats were discovered.
  • Database updates: Check this box if you would like to receive notifications when database updates happen.
  • Issues: Check this box if you want to receive notifications related to device or program issues.
