Read About Malwarebytes Amnesty Program

If you have been pirating the Malwarebytes Anti-malware Premium version, you will receive an amnesty.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium

The developers of Malwarebytes is rolling out a new licensing key system to track their licensees and to prevent pirating; however, to bring this system up to speed they are giving the software pirates an amnesty by giving them a 1 year subscription key (for FREE). From what I have researched, the developer, “in a nutshell”, lost track of who was legal and who was not; and, the only way to remedy the issue was to perform an audit to collect data to determine what keys are still alive, and who are they used by. If you are a true pirate, the furthest you will get is a year’s worth of Malwarebytes. To read a good article about this CLICK HERE

What the end user of Malwarebytes will see, whether you are a pirate of not, is the following message:

Select the option below (in your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium product) that describes how you originally received your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Pro or Premium license. We’ll assign you a new key, and you’ll be good to go.

  1. I’m not sure where I got my key, or I downloaded it from the Internet. (Select this option and we will issue you a brand-new key with 12 free months of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium.)

  2. I purchased my key. (Select this option and we will issue you a replacement key with the same license to Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as your original key.)

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is an industry-leading scanner that detects and removes worms, Trojans, rootkits, rogues, spyware, and other dangerous malware from your home PC. There is a FREE version and a paid premium version. The FREE version does not perform background scanning; whereas, the premium version (with background scanning and more features) is ready and alert at all times.

  1. So, even if I had not been pirating the Premium version, in order to get a legitimate license for a year, all I have to do is to enter one of the widely distributed ‘free’ keys and update.

    I would think, at this point in their process of auditing what is out there, this would be resolved to prevent what you have described…

    • Actually, I tried it, and it worked! I thought it might, as it did not seem fair for Kleczynski to be rewarding the folks who have been cheating with a free year while denying such an offer to those of us who had been staying with the free version.
