i did mark the site as being "good" but if it does go into the bad rating it could potentially be blocked that's why im bringing it to attention now.So long as the site isn't blocked I wouldn't fuss over it. Plus anyone who wants to change the rating can just install the extension and thumbs up the website.
Wow, they may just start censoring their critics. I know some world leaders who would like to do that, they use similar methodsi did mark the site as being "good" but if it does go into the bad rating it could potentially be blocked that's why im bringing it to attention now.
MalwareTips.com does not host nor store any Virus/Malware samples on the server....I suspect that this is due to the presence of a virus sample.
Malwarebytes also is privacy conscious. They have a better detection rate too.Why on earth would someone use these useless extensions that come with AV software?
It's just an other way of collecting data from users and everyone knows that. I bet Emsisoft Browser Security is the only extension that does its job with respecting user's privacy. All others are either spying or useless in terms of detection.
Just because the extension description says it "protects your privacy", that doesn't mean the extension itself is privacy conscious. They might block ads and trackers, but that means nothing to you when the company that made the product still collects data about you. Microsoft Edge is the perfect example - a privacy friendly browser that blocks trackers, but still collects full URLs of the sites you visit if you have SmartScreen enabled.
I think those are for the VPN, which is named Malwarebytes Privacy. I can't find specific guidelines in their policy for the extension. However, Fabian outlined they use hashes and encrypt the data sent to the server.Personally, I'm using Emsisoft Browser Security because it doesn't have the FPs and I trust them more. I don't need the "best" protection, whatever that is.
