Activating Malwarebytes for Mac enables Premium features such as Real-Time Protection and Scheduled Scans. To activate Malwarebytes Premium on Mac devices, have your Premium license key ready and follow the instructions below.


Your license key is located in the order confirmation email that was sent to you when you purchased your Premium subscription. If you do not have a license key or cannot locate your order confirmation email, go to the Malwarebytes website to buy a Premium subscription or see how to find your Premium license key.
