Malwarebytes Free vs paid


Q: Does it also remove the malware in its free version? or free is just to detect?

A: Yes it detects and removes malware in free version. Paid version is to catch the malware before they enter into the system. In paid version you will get real time protection.

Q: Is it worth to buy a premium license?

A: Malwarebytes is worth to buy but before taking my words, You can take a 14 days free trial to check its usefulness and then make your decision.

Q: I already have antivirus, do still I need it?

A: If you already have an antivirus on your system you still can use this tool without any compatibility issue. You can keep both in your system. You can use Malwarebytes free as a second opinion on-demand scanner. Or I can say it is better then bare antivirus. And if you are using a Internet security then still it is useful to keep it in the system.
