Free 1-Year and Lifetime Licenses of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium Edition
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is a well known and one of the most popular anti-malware programs available for Windows. It scans your PC for suspicious items such as worms, Trojans, rootkits, spyware and many other harmful malware and also helps you in removing them from your computer system.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware can be used in Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1 operating systems. Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) editions of Windows are supported.
It comes in following 4 main versions:
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free edition
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium edition
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for mobile phones
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for business
The free edition of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is sufficient for many users but it lacks some important features such as real-time protection, website protection, etc. That's where the Premium edition comes to rescue.
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium edition comes with many extra and important features which are not present in the Free edition such as:
- Real-time protection
- Protection from malicious websites
- Hyper scan mode for faster scanning
- Scheduler for database update downloads and automatic scans
- Chameleon Driver to prevent malware from killing Malwarebytes process
Generally 1-year license of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium edition costs $24.95 but now Malwarebytes is providing free 12-months and lifetime licenses of its Anti-Malware Premium edition for people who are using a pirated i.e. counterfeit version of their product as a part of their "Amnesty Program". This bold step has been taken to fight against pirates. This step will also help the company in attracting more customers and blacklisting more pirated keys.
So if you are using a pirated version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium edition by mistake, you can make it genuine by going through following simple steps:
1. Launch the program and select any of following 2 options which are available under Activate, My Account or License Details sections:
- I'm not sure where I got my key, or I downloaded it from the Internet
- I purchased my key
2. Click on Next button and Malwarebytes will provide you a new genuine license key which will be valid for as following:
- If you select first option "I'm not sure where I got my key, or I downloaded it from the Internet", you'll get free 1-year license key.
- If you select second option "I purchased my key", you'll get free lifetime license key.
PS: Although this offer has been made available for people who are already using non-genuine version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium edition but anyone can take benefit of this offer by downloading the Premium edition of the product from here, then entering a pirated license key and then grabbing a brand new genuine license key from Malwarebytes. Seems like a loophole.
