Appears to be a new product, as it was just shared on the Malwarebytes Forums.

At that price you are getting into IVPN territory.

Edit: Also I can't find a privacy policy for the VPN. Their privacy page has no reference.
The VPN provider they use is Mullvad. They are one of the best concerning privacy policy.A true No-log service.Perhaps you could check there.:)

At $80.00 Canadian per year I will pass, but would be interested how this performs from anyone who tries it.
It includes the VPN service and malwarebytes for 5 devices.

They had a deal with Mullvad, but now they are using their own app. They haven’t said anything about whether or not it is still using Mullvad’s services. I can’t find much about it on their website, at least not yesterday. They don’t even actually state what protocol they use, which I’m assuming is wireguard based on their speed claims.

You are right.There are not many infos about the VPN. My guess is that they are using the insfrastructure of Mullvad VPN, just like Bitdefender, Panda and kaspersky use Hotspot shield.
Many of the infos that malwarebytes give about their VPN are almost the same as those of mullvad.

That’s what I was thinking, especially since Mullvad has been a pioneer in wireguard. I wish they had some sort of documentation, and a privacy policy that was updated to include the vpn.

I installed it to see if my MB4 lifetime license would work, it would not. While installed the price I found to purchase was $80 for the Privacy license alone. I just checked their website, a 5 computer license for Malwarebytes Premium and Privacy Guard is &129.99. It does install a Wireguard folder.

I just realized this coincided with wireguard releasing 1.0.0 code. Probably not a coincidence that they released this just as the stable build was finalized.
That is why they talk about a "next gen" vpn and that "new" protocol.;) I love MBA, but frankly, i would pass for now concerning the Vpn.There are better choices out there for choosing a Vpn.

You're right. MB Privacy VPN is just a new comer in terms of VPN. We have so many choices of VPN software with a long-history stability like Hotspot Shield, Express VPN, Vypr VPN, Unlimited VPN, NordVPN (the worst), Tunnel Bear,...
I have used them all and just become suspicious of MB Privacy VPN.
