Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is one of the first programs that many (myself included) reach for when cleaning up an infected PC. The application was first released in 2008 and since then it’s been available exclusively for systems running Windows and only recently for Android as well.
That’s no longer the case as the Malwarebytes Corporation has released a version for Mac.
Known as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac, the application is lightweight and easy to install. Once installed and authorized, users will find a barebones application with just three options.
The Scan button, as you might have guessed, initiates a scan for malware and adware, provides information if anything is found and allows users to remove the offending content afterwards. The Next Steps option can be used if a scan didn’t solve your problem while the Get Help button will open the PDF that came with the application.
There’s also an option to contact customer support which will send over your scan log and necessary system information for the Malwarebytes team to analyze.
Malwarebytes is planning to release a premium version of the app as well as a business edition. The company didn’t provide an exact launch date as to when either might arrive although they hope to get them out before the end of the year.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Mac is available for download here. As of writing, it hadn’t made it to the Mac app store.
