Found and Killed A Trojan. This is a nasty little thing: .. Android/Trojan.Spy.Agent.or .. that lodged in one of my favorite games I've had for years! Makes me sick, because even tho Malwarebytes has removed others, this one took my game and all to get rid of it. We..the game producer and I..are still working on where it came from, who sent it, but meanwhile I don't dare reinstall the...

“Like it says: Bytes Malware right out of your phone!”
Actually it's 4.5 stars if that was available. These ppl make a great app, and I reserved that half a star because for two reasons. 1. Is I have to keep this app off of automatic because it sucks up to much of my small older phone's RAM & battery if I don't. That knocks out "full time protection" for me, but I doubt it would affect a bigger newer phone as much. Mine is a 5 or 6 yo Kyocera (Qualcomm). 2. Is not really their fault, but there is no cleaner part to this app, and tho I asked them for that addition years ago, I guess they're still thinking about it.
What this app does tho is better than two other anti virus protection apps I tried..got rid of 13 (yes thirteen!) Trojans for me the others didn't catch.
It failed me once, only, but so has Mcaffee, and that was understandable, as that virus (the FBI virus) was brand new then, and not yet in their database (which updates on auto almost daily. I do it around semi monthly, and never again had a prob.)
For you who might like to know; I got rid of the FBI virus..which locked my phone demanding $200 to "release" it.. by myself, by getting my phone into safe mode and then just uninstalling the app (video player) it rode in on.
Altogether I guess I've had Malwarebytes for four or five years now, no probs, and I like it a lot..Recommend it.
