How to Get a Free Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium License

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - One of best malware removal tools for your computer, which enables you to remove adware (such as adware that causes browser ads), spyware, some Trojans, worms, and other unwanted software. Using this program together with a good antivirus (they do not conflict) is one of the best ways to protect your computer.

There is a free version and a premium version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. The first allows you to find and remove malware from your computer, the second includes protection against ransomware, malicious site scanning, quick scan mode and scheduled scan, and Malwarebytes Chameleon (allows you to use Anti-Malware when malware is blocking the launch).

The cost of the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium key for one year is about fifteen hundred rubles, but the other day there was a legal opportunity to license this version for free. Especially, I think, relevant to the Russian user.

Obtain the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium Key as part of the Amnesty Program

For this reason, Malwarebytes has launched an "Amnesty Program" in which users using a pirated version of the product can obtain a free Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium key. This step is aimed at fighting piracy and will also allow the company to blacklist counterfeit keys and attract more customers.

Therefore, if you have the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware version installed with a generated key, you can get a free real license key using the method described below.

Run the program (the Internet must be connected and the program must have permission to access the network to check it, including the hosts).

You will see a "Locating your license key" window with the message "You seem to have a problem with your license key." But we can fix it »and two items to choose from (the same window you will see if you download Anti-Malware from the official site and enter the generated key):

  • I'm not sure where I got my password - "I'm not sure where I got my password or downloaded it from the Internet." If you select this item, you will receive a new free Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium key for 12 months.
  • I have bought my key - «I have bought my key». If you select this option, the key will be reissued free of charge under the same conditions (for one year, for life) as the one promised.

After selecting one of the items and clicking the "Next" button, the selected action will be applied and the program will be activated automatically with the new license key.

You can view your Malwarebytes Anti-Malware key and its expiration date by clicking on "Personal Area" in the upper right corner. In the future, when you reinstall this malware removal tool on your computer, you will be able to use the same license.

Note: I don't know how long this feature will work. But at the time of writing this, it works.
