Malwarebytes for Android is an excellent app for keeping you safe from dangerous websites while you browse the Internet using your Android device. I have been using Malwarebytes for over 5 years now in my PC and also use it on my Android phone. So far, the app has done an amazing job in keeping my device secure from malware and phishing websites. However, one disadvantage for having the app it its “Crushes Malware. Restores Confidence. Real time protection is active.” notification which remains in the notification bar of the device. This notification cannot to be removed by swiping. I will discuss how to remove Malwarebytes notification from the notification bar in this post.
