    Ratings and Reviews

    Awesome like always, but.....

    You have to check every now and then if you’re still connected. On PC, I’m always connected through VPN even after every shutoff. I had it on last night, but tonight it’s off. (With that in mind, kill switch coming soon?)

    Please update to version 1.4 and turn on the "Auto connect VPN" option in the Privacy app's settings. That should fix the problem. We can't give a date for kill switch at this point.

    Great! But needs icon and Kill Switch

    I use this on my MacBook Air and I love it!
    I wish the iPhone version had at least an icon to tell me it’s on so I don’t have to constantly check it.
    And of course I can’t wait for Kill Switch on iPhone and iPad.

    Occasionally turns off by itself

    Have to check to see if the app is still on. Turns off without my knowledge once in awhile.

    Please update to version 1.4 and turn on the "Auto connect VPN" option in the Privacy app's settings. That should fix the problem.

    Malwarebytes VPN Review

    Recently, many companies mainly known for their antivirus software have expanded into the wonderful world of VPNs, and that includes Malwarebytes. But, unlike most VPNs, their version only supports Mac, iOS, and Windows devices. If that’s all the devices you want to protect with a VPN, then Malwarebytes could be a solid option for you. Or could it?

    Editor's Rating

    The Best of Malwarebytes VPN

    Malwarebytes is a pretty bare-bones VPN, with only apps for Windows, iOS, and Mac computers. That being said, it did what we needed in terms of encryption, for fairly low prices. Let’s get into more details.

    • Won’t log traffic or IP addresses: Although Malwarebytes encrypted this information for us, they didn’t log it for themselves. Rather, their privacy policy states that they only logged our bandwidth usage and the public key that we used to connect to the VPN in the first place.
    • Kill switch on Windows: Only the Windows app had a kill switch, killing our web apps and browsers when the VPN inevitably failed.
    • Torrenting access: We had fun torrenting old movies with Malwarebytes VPN connected (don’t worry; we torrented non-copyrighted material only, as we can’t participate in the illegal distribution of copyrighted material).1
    • Netflix works (sometimes): While it wasn’t 100 percent compatible with all of Netflix’s servers, some of Malwarebytes’ servers allowed us to Netflix and chill.
    • AES-256: Most importantly, Malwarebytes uses the top encryption method to hide our web activity and IP address, AES-256. And our DNS and WebRTC tests confirmed that our domain names and IP addresses were truly hidden.
    • Fast upload and download speeds: Malwarebytes only slowed our Macbook down by about four percent total, while on Windows, our download speeds decreased by about 33 percent and 25 percent, respectively. While that may sound like a lot, compared to competitors, it’s on the lower end, especially as VPNs for Windows tend to be slower than Macs in our experience.
    • Unlimited server switches: We could’ve gone on over 370 different Malwarebytes servers without being charged extra, all under the same sweet subscription.
    • Seven-day free trial: And the best part? The free trial didn’t limit us on things like daily data or devices connected, so we could truly try out the same VPN as if we had paid for it.
    • Decent pricing: Although we wish that Malwarebytes was a bit more flexible when it comes to contracts, a VPN for what amounts of $3.33 a month is on the lower end of average. To dive deeper, read our Malwarebytes VPN costs page.
    Number of devicesCost per monthTotal amount billed
    1$3.33$39.99

    The Worst of Malwarebytes VPN

    Unfortunately, we have a long list of cons to follow. From its headquarters in the U.S to its lack of mobile apps, Malwarebytes certainly isn’t a VPN for all.

    • Based in the U.S: No, we’re not anti-American (in fact, we’re based in the Big Apple!). But the fact remains that the U.S is a founding member of the Five Eyes, Nine Eyes and 14 Eyes international surveillance alliances. What does this mean for Malwarebytes, exactly? Well, legally, the company could be forced to share customer data. Of course, the fact that they stored none of our web activity means that this privacy jurisdiction probably won’t matter to most people. Still, for the most privacy-concerned, we recommend using a VPN based in a non-member country.
    • Low number of servers: Unlike companies like NordVPN, which boasts over 5,000 servers across 62 countries, Malwarebytes’ server reach is pretty limited. In total, they have around 270 servers in about 30 locations. This may or may not matter to you; what’s more important are the locations of the servers, so it may be worth it to download the free trial and see if they have servers that you’re interested in.

    How To: To change your server on the Malwarebytes VPN, turn on Malwarebytes Privacy and click on “Change server location”. Under “Choose new server”, you’ll be able to see the available countries and cities within those countries with available servers. Click the server you want to connect to.

    • macOS app doesn’t have a kill switch: One time when we were testing out Malwarebytes on our 2019 Macbook Pro, our Wi-Fi flickered and the VPN disconnected. We were disappointed that Chrome didn’t shut down with the VPN, as all of our traffic was exposed to our ISP. Rats!
    • No iOS or Android apps: Malwarebytes is the only VPN we’ve tested that only works on desktop, not mobile. So if you wanted a VPN for your iPhone or a VPN for your Android, you’re out of luck when it comes to Malwarebytes, at least for the time being.
    • No split tunneling: A smaller issue is Malwarebytes’ lack of split tunneling. When we were on their VPN, we had to route all of our web activity through the encrypted tunnel. This is usually fine, but when we were video chatting with a friend, a high-bandwidth activity, our web connection was even slower than usual with the VPN on. And since this conversation wasn’t really all that private, we would have liked to be able to connect Zoom to the coffee shop’s public Wi-Fi network directly, while keeping the rest of our Chrome activity on the VPN. However, that wasn’t an option with Malwarebytes.
    • No multi-hop: Although they claim they’re adding multi-hop in the future, currently Malwarebytes only encrypted our traffic a single time through one server rather than multiple. This won’t be a deal breaker for most people, as most VPNs lack multi-hop, but if you’re looking for the most privacy, then Malwarebytes is probably not your best bet.
    • Static IP addresses: Another issue was the VPN’s static IP addresses. When we were on the same server, the one nearest to our office in Brooklyn, we found that Malwarebytes gave us the exact same IP address every time we connected. That made it easier to trace us online, which sort of defeats the purpose of a VPN (although our private IP address was still hidden).
    • Latency: We saw huge amounts of latency on both our 2019 Macbook Pro and our Windows 10 Acer Aspire 5. On Mac, latency increased by 138 percent, while on Windows, that number was even higher at 1,680 percent. It’s safe to say that Malwarebytes is not a good VPN for gamers, at least if you want to win.2
    • Only five simultaneous connections and devices: One subscription from Malwarebytes only covered five devices total and five devices at once. Now, personally, we have way more than five devices, so this wouldn’t cut it for us, or you if you’re looking for a VPN for families or a VPN for businesses. But this may not be a big deal to you if you have five devices or less.
    • Yearly contracts only: Since Malwarebytes hails from the world of antivirus, where yearly subscriptions are typically the minimum contract length, we were disappointed but not surprised that the same thing rang true for their VPN. Whether we signed up for their VPN alone or a bundle with the Malwarebytes antivirus software, there was no flexible, month-to-month option. However, the fact that they give you a week to try out their software makes this annual commitment a little less scary. To learn more about the antivirus software pricing in particular, read our page on Malwarebytes antivirus subscriptions.

    Pro Tip: If you want to buy both the VPN and the antivirus software, you can save money by buying them in a bundle, $59.99 for a year of coverage.

    In Conclusion

    If you’re a numbers geek, then you may have counted that Malwarebytes has more negatives than positives. However, some of the negatives may not matter to you, and vice versa. To make things easier, we broke down exactly who we think Malwarebytes would be good for, and in contrast, who should steer clear.

    Malwarebytes Privacy VPN Installer on Mac
    The Malwarebytes VPN would be good for:
    • Windows, iOS, or Mac users only: Although Android apps are coming soon, right now the VPN only works on Windows, iOS, and Mac computers.
    • Someone who wants Netflix and torrenting access: If you want a VPN for streaming, Malwarebytes hits the mark (but every server may not be Netflix-compatible).
    • Anyone with a total of five devices or less: You’ll be able to connect up to five devices at once on Malwarebytes.
    • A person that wants a week-long free trial: You’ll get all the same features of Malwarebytes within their free trial period, so you can truly see how well it works on your devices.
    The Malwarebytes VPN would not be good for:
    • Gamers: Based on our speed tests, Malwarebytes increased our latency significantly.
    • Android users: Of course, we’re hoping that the Android app comes soon, but currently Malwarebytes isn’t available on Android.
    • Someone who wants a VPN based in a non-member country: Since Malwarebytes is based in the U.S, they could be forced to share customer data with the federal government.
    • Anyone who wants split tunneling: If you want to access public and private networks simultaneously, Malwarebytes isn’t for you.
    • A person that wants multi-hop: It’s also not a good choice if you want your web activity and IP addresses to be encrypted more than once through multiple servers.
    • Someone who wants dynamic IP addresses: Rather, each time you connect to the same server, you’ll get the same IP address.
    • Anyone who wants subscriptions for less than a year: Malwarebytes doesn’t have any week-long, month-long or six-month long options, unlike many of its competitors.

    If you’re not sure whether the Malwarebytes VPN is right for you, again, the trial period is seven days. Or, check out some other VPNs with free trials. While some of them require putting a card down, if you cancel before the trial is over, you won’t lose any money. Phew!

    FAQ

    Hankering for more information about Malwarebytes VPN? Then check out these frequently asked questions.

    • Is the Malwarebytes VPN good?

      The Malwarebytes VPN is good for Mac, iOS, and Windows users, but for those who want to use a VPN for both their computers and mobile devices, look somewhere else. The Malwarebytes VPN does not have an Android or Windows mobile app. On a more positive note, Malwarebytes doesn’t log IP addresses and internet traffic, it allows access to torrenting and Netflix, and most importantly, it uses AES-256 encryption, so it’s a good option for desktop users.

    • Does Malwarebytes offer a VPN?

      Malwarebytes offers a VPN, which costs about $5 per month for up to five devices. If you also use Malwarebytes anti-malware solution for your Android devices or Chrome browsers, you can snag a VPN plus anti-malware plan for only $99.99 per year or roughly $8 per month.

    • Is the Malwarebytes VPN safe and legitimate?

      The Malwarebytes VPN is safe and legitimate. Although Malwarebytes started as an anti-malware company, it has since expanded its horizons to include a VPN service. Unlike many VPNs today, the Malwarebytes VPN does not keep IP addresses and internet traffic, making it a safer choice for privacy-conscious individuals.

    • Do I need an antivirus even if I have the Malwarebytes VPN?

      You still need an antivirus even if you have the Malwarebytes VPN. A VPN encrypts your internet traffic so your ISP, the government, and hackers won’t be able to see what you’re doing online. However, it does not protect you against malware such as viruses, trojans, and worms.

    What is a VPN?

    vpn

    VPN definition

    VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. A VPN acts like a digital middleman between you and the Internet. Your Internet traffic travels through an encrypted tunnel and will look like it’s coming from the VPN server rather than your own IP address. This gives you online privacy and secures your activity on shared WiFi connections.

    What does a VPN do?

    A VPN encrypts your online activity and makes it look like your Internet traffic is coming from a VPN server rather than your own IP address. By using a VPN, people can’t figure out who you are, where you are, or what you’re looking at. Benefits of using a VPN include:

    • Keeping your online activity private
    • Concealing your actual IP address
    • Protecting your browsing activity while on public WiFi, like in coffee shops or airports
    • Masking your online activity, making it difficult for online advertisers to track you
    • Spoofing your location by accessing the Internet using VPN servers around the world
    • Enabling you to watch streaming video content from other countries

    Besides these benefits of using a VPN, employers often use VPNs to enable their employees to remotely access files and programs on a business network as if they were in the office. Additionally, some people use VPNs to bypass Internet censorship in certain countries, such as journalists or political dissidents who want to speak out safely while hiding their identity.

    “By using a VPN, people can’t figure out who you are, where you are, or what you’re looking at.”

    What is a VPN service?

    Most VPNs for consumers are actually VPN services. With a VPN service, you don’t have to own, setup, or maintain anything. Rather, the VPN provider is responsible for the servers, the encryption, and the user authentication. The customer simply pays a subscription fee to use the VPN service.

    Using a VPN service makes it easy to get started. You sign up for a subscription, download the VPN client or app, and connect to a server. There are many VPN providers, so the hardest part of the process might be selecting which one to use. It’s important to select one who is known to be trustworthy and reliable.

    Malwarebytes Privacy VPN includes secure 256-bit encryption, and it uses a newer and faster VPN protocol that minimizes lag. If you’re looking for a VPN service, you can try it free and see how easily you can help protect your online privacy and secure your WiFi connection.

    “With a VPN service, you don’t have to own, setup, or maintain anything.”

    How do VPNs work?

    When you’re connected to the Internet, all of your activity is logged and associated with your Internet Protocol or IP address. If you’re using a shared WiFi network, others on the network could see what you’re doing. Even on your home network, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can still see your activity.

    Using a VPN is like creating a digital middleman between your device and the Internet that blocks others from seeing what you’re doing. When you connect to a VPN, instead of your activity being associated with your IP address, now it’s the VPN server’s IP address that is associated with your data. You might think of it like a return address: Instead of the mail coming from your home address, it’s now coming from the VPN server’s “home” address.

    The data that is sent and received when you’re online is also encrypted, so besides it not coming from your own IP address, it’s also unreadable. You could think of it like sending scrambled information through a secret tunnel, and it’s not readable until it reaches its intended destination on the other side. Even if someone were to intercept the message in the tunnel, without the key, they wouldn’t be able to decipher it. Without getting too technical, the important thing to remember is that with a VPN, data is encrypted as it enters the tunnel and it’s decrypted as it leaves the tunnel using encryption keys.

    How to use a VPN

    Using a VPN service is an easy way to get started. If you plan to sign up with a VPN provider, the steps typically include:

    • Research VPN providers to find a reliable one you can trust.
    • Sign up for a free trial if you want to take the VPN for a test drive first, or sign up for the subscription if you’re ready to buy right away.
    • Download the VPN client for Windows or Mac, or the VPN app for Android or iOS. Many VPN providers offer subscriptions for multiple devices.
    • Select a server location, then connect!

    A VPN, or virtual private network, is a secure connection between people and devices over the Internet. It uses encryption technology to re-create the security of a local network and connect devices that are not in the same location. A VPN makes going online safer and more private by stopping people from seeing who you are, where you are, or what you’re looking at.

    If you’re on a public network, such as in an airport or coffee shop, you can use a VPN to hide your identity, spoof your location, and mask your online activities.

    Malwarebytes Privacy VPN is a good solution for protecting your online privacy. It secures your WiFi connections at speeds faster than traditional VPNs so it won’t slow you down when you’re gaming or browsing the Internet.

    Malwarebytes Privacy uses stealthy VPN tunneling technology to safeguard your personal information and help you stay anonymous while using the web. Your Internet traffic travels through an encrypted tunnel and will look like it’s coming from a Malwarebytes’ virtual server – giving you a simple, easy way to take control of your privacy.

    One word to the wise: Avoid free VPNs. Free VPNs exist for criminals who don’t want to leave a paper trail. Unfortunately, the majority of free VPNs are run by criminals, for criminals.

    It's also important to pair a VPN with a good cybersecurity program for total protection. VPNs are just one aspect of an all-encompassing cybersecurity strategy. Home users interested in using the Internet safely and privately should take a look at Malwarebytes for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Chromebook.
