Watch this video to learn about Brute Force Protection for Malwarebytes for Windows version 4. Cybercriminals may try to gain remote access to your devices by submitting many passwords in hopes of guessing one correctly. This is also known as a brute force attack. Our Brute Force Protection (BFP) feature monitors Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol by protecting your devices from suspicious connections via remote devices. It temporarily blocks IP addresses with suspicious login attempts and notifies you of the blocks. You can also customize the criteria for a brute force attack using the additional settings. BFP is an opt-in feature and is available only for Malwarebytes for Windows and Malwarebytes for Teams users.
