hello, i don't really have an issue, just doing some regular scanning and i have my phone charging via my computer and i was wondering, even though in the full scan drive selection window it shows my phone (as drive "x") is malwarebytes able to find/remove malicious software that may be on my phone? or is there a distinction that would require an app specifically for the phone? as it is an older blackberry i can't get the google play version of malwarebytes.

 

p.s. sorry if this is in the wrong topic thread i wasn't sure where to post it, nothing came up in the search and this post doesn't require urgent response as it is just an idle query.

On a full scan and that drive setup to access it then yes it's possible but certainly not the best way as it could easily have false positives and cause damage to the phone.

We do have a free version for the phone

yeah, but it's an old blackberry 9320 curve, the app seems geared towards android users, this phone is, to say the least, less than stellar for apps, and definitely cannot use android apps. ah well.
