Update: after publishing this review, we receive some feedback mentioning the False Positive about MacRemover made by some Malwarebytes security products, and that the uninstaller cannot run normally if users install Malwarebytes on their Macs.


False positive is commonly used in cybersecurity to denote that a file or setting has been flagged as malicious when it’s not. The false report may be based on behavioral analysis, as the legitimate file/app may shows behavior that is usually considered malicious. To explore this issue further, we contact the vendors of MacRemover and Malwarebytes. MacRemover replies that it is working positively to communicate with Malwarebytes, hoping to clarify the false negative report as soon as possible.

Considering that Malwarebytes may block legitimate apps occasionally, and that the auto-quarantine feature of Malwarebytes Protection Module may cause problems with False Positive, we may suggest those affected users to add MacRemover to the Ignore list of Malwarebytes, before Malwarebytes fixes this in their next update. Then how to stop Malwarebytes from blocking or scanning a file or app that you trust? Malwarebytes gives out the detailed steps in its support page:


  1. Open up Malwarebytes product installed on your Mac.
  2. Click the Ignore List tab, and click Add button.
  3. Navigate to the Applications folder, select MacRemover, and click OK button.


Meanwhile, if you are notified a detection warming about MacRemover, you can click Ignore button to put this tool into the Malwarebytes software’s exclusion system. Not so hard to finish, right?
