What Does Mac AdwareMedic (Malwarebytes) Do?

If AdwareMedic (Malwarebytes) doesn’t solve your problem, it includes the ability to take a system snapshot that can help find possible sources for the problem. This both helps you get rid of the adware and helps others by improving the app!

AdwareMedic (Malwarebytes) will not install anything on your system.

When it is opened, it will connect to to check for and/or download the latest adware “signatures” (a small text file that tells AdwareMedic how to identify adware components).
