Malwarebytes Browser Guard immediately begins blocking ads, trackers, scams, and malware once installed on your browser. You may not even notice it work during your browsing experience. Most content blocks do not produce notifications, except in the case of an entire website block. Malwarebytes Browser Guard may completely stop you from accessing a website if it is suspected of hosting malware, PUPs, scams, or links to malicious software.
The following are the different block pages you may see when using Malwarebytes Browser Guard:
- Malware block page
- PUP block page
- Reputation block page
- Suspicious TLD block page
Each block page tells you why it was activated and the web address that caused the block. If you encounter block pages, we strongly suggest that you do not continue. You can click the Go Back button to return to your previous page. If you trust the website and want to go there anyway, click CONTINUE TO SITE to bypass the block. There is also a checkbox to add the website to your personal Allow list.
While most blocks occur due to legitimate reasons, there may be false positives. A website block may have been valid at one time, but not anymore, or the app accidentally blocks a safe website. We strive for the best accuracy of our software, and evaluate our protection database frequently.
If you find a website that you think shouldn't be blocked, let us know via our Malwarebytes Browser Guard public forum.
