Everyone lives on the internet. Whether you're streaming Netflix, swiping on Tinder, or completing errands like paying bills online, the Internet is more than a way to spend time. It's an integral part of your life.

Unfortunately, these same conveniences make you a target for cyberattacks. At best, threats like malware, phishing, and hacking might lead to a couple hours fixing your computer (or paying someone else to fix it). Worst case scenario, it puts you and your computer out of commission for days and damages your files beyond repair. It may also mean some hacker has complete and total access to your online life, including your banking and credit card information.

To avoid the above scenarios altogether, it helps to use cybersecurity software. Malwarebytes is a program that scans for cyber threats on Windows, Mac, and Android devices. Compared to traditional antivirus software, it's faster, smarter, and easier to use. Best of all, it's free, and you can download it here.

Developed by a self-taught computer technician who worked with like-minded security gurus and malware hunters, Malwarebytes takes an aggressive approach to protecting your devices against malware, viruses, and other threats. If you've dealt with a malware attack before, you know this: modern threats mutate so fast, it's hard to find an antivirus that can keep up.

With this in mind, Malwarebytes uses multiple layers of protection, aggressively detecting not just malicious threats but also junk programs that slow down your computer. For total security, the premium version of Malwarebytes also blocks malicious websites that can hack your computer.

The bottom line is you'll have your own hackers working to beat the bad hackers who are trying to infiltrate your system. Don't be foolish and leave your digital life to the wolves, start protecting all your devices. Download the free trial here.
