Geek Squeaks (#2015-37) FEATURING —Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Goes Mobile — and MORE GREAT STUFF

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Goes Mobile – I cannot say enough about Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and it does not surprise me that they are offering an app for the Android platform (called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile). From what I have been reading about this, their intentions are to focus on keeping your phone (and tablet) malware and spyware free; AND, not turn into a security app that is full of bloat. You can read more about this app HERE and get it HERE

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile

Features of the mobile version are:

  • Detects and eliminates malware, including spyware and Trojans
  • Scans your apps for malicious code or Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs)
  • Alerts you if a link to a malicious website is detected in an incoming text message (SMS).
  • Stops unauthorized access to your personal data
  • Scans your Android device for security vulnerabilities
  • Identifies applications that are tracking your location

Learn More About The November Windows 10 Updates – The November update is a large update (or OS upgrade). On my box it took approximately 45 minutes for the update to complete. So what are we getting with this update? To get a good read and visual on some of the new features, go to Supersite for Windows and read The Windows 10 November Update: Your mega-guide to all the how-tos that features a photo gallery review.

A Security Program That Focuses On Toolbars, Browser Hijackers, PUP’s and Adware – Through recent experience of assisting someone with removing a browser hijacker, I have added AdwCleaner to my tech toolbox (and to the Downloads page under the Free Software Swarm). AdwCleaner saved me a ton of time and did the job. I do recommend that you use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware in conjunction with AdwCleaner to rule out all avenues of a potential malware infection.

An Example Of Some Great LED Light And Network Technology – I have always had a fascination with the LED technology and how it is changing the way we use flashlights and outdoor lights. An outdoor (motion sensing light) that I am planning to purchase for my camper is the Mr. Beams Networked LED Wireless Motion Sensing Spotlight System. The cool thing about these lights is that they can be “networked” so that they will communicate with each other, so when one spotlight detects motion, the other lights on the “network” activate simultaneously. The lights require a D-Cell battery and will reportedly last up to a year before the next battery change.

  1. Based on the comments at Google Play as of 1/2/2016, it looks like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile is not ready yet. I, too, respect Malwarebytes, but I am going to give them a month or so more to work out the bugs in the mobile version.

      David,

      To be honest, I just recently removed many of the security apps on my mobile platforms. I am finding that the Android OS is a pretty robust/secure platform to begin with and that many of the security apps I have installed/tested are loaded with bloat and do nothing but slow the device(s) down. I definitely am keeping an eye on Malwarebytes to see where it is going…

      Rick
