The Tamper Protection policy option in Malwarebytes Nebula protects endpoints by limiting end user ability to uninstall Malwarebytes. This also prevents malicious threats from stopping, modifying, or deleting Malwarebytes.
To find and toggle these option's in the Nebula console, click Settings > Policies > select a policy > locate Tamper Protection.
- Require Uninstall Password (Windows only): Stops all endpoint users from uninstalling Malwarebytes agent software by requiring a separate uninstall password. When enabled, you are prompted to create a Tamper Protection password. Endpoint users who attempt to uninstall the endpoint agent cannot proceed without this password.
- Service and Process Protection (Windows 10 only): Prevents malware from stopping, modifying, or deleting the Malwarebytes Endpoint Agent.
- Endpoint Protection or Endpoint Detection & Response are required to use both features.
- Both features do not support Windows XP endpoints.
