The My Account tab in Malwarebytes for Mac allows you to view license key details, version status, and license key expiration date. You can also deactivate or change your license key on this screen. This is useful if you want to transfer a Malwarebytes Premium subscription to a different device. To view this screen, click the gear icon in the top-right corner of the Dashboard, then click the My Account tab.


The My Account tab in Settings looks different depending if you are using Malwarebytes Free, Malwarebytes Trial, and Malwarebytes Premium. Each version is described below:

  • If using the Malwarebytes Free version: Real-Time Protection does not work. You can click I already Have A License to input a license key and activate Malwarebytes Premium, or you can click Upgrade Now to purchase a Malwarebytes Premium subscription.
