Malwarebytes Privacy Report
Antivirus software Malwarebytes is a pretty big name in the space, and as such, should be held up to a high privacy standard.
The good news? Malwarebytes does a great job prioritizing the protection of their customers’ data. They log minimal information, and what they do keep record of has more to do with account continuity than it does gathering data.
Malwarebytes does share information with third parties. And they did have a very minor cybersecurity issue a few years ago related to the FireEye breach, but there were no major impacts on customer data and the vulnerabilities were addressed quickly.
