If a file or app appears on the Allow List, it is considered safe only because you chose Ignore Always for the detection after a scan. Files and apps can only be added to the Allow List on the Scan results screen on your Android or Chromebook device. To learn how to allow detections after scans, see Act on scan results in Malwarebytres for Android.
View excluded items in your Allow List
- In Malwarebytes, tap the Menu icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
- Tap Scanner.
- Tap the Allow List icon in the top-right of the screen.
If you added a file or app to the Allow List and later decide that you don't want to exclude it from scans, check the box next to the file and tap Remove from Allow List. It will be removed immediately. To remove all files and apps from the Allow List, tap Select all at the top-right of the Allow List screen, then tap Remove from Allow List.
Once a file has been added to the Allow List, it remains there until you remove it, or if Malwarebytes determines that the file has changed. This may be because it's signature has changed, or because the file has been updated.
