Release notes: In 2019 let’s clean that malware, shall we?

Maybe last year we have been quiet but this year we will be loud. So, we yell:

  • REMOVE that malware
  • MAKE that PC clean
  • WE want a fast scan
  • WE don’t want malware!

You know how they say, send out positive energy to the universe and the universe will give you back more. Well, we don’t know if that sh*t works, but we know that when we listen to our users we build and work better.

So, we did that. In the past 12 months, we have been working heavily on our new product that contains all the suggestions you had been sending us over the years.

All these suggestions, hard work, and blood sweat and tears of Zemana team are packed in software named Zemana AntiMalware 3.0 Beta.

Why 12 months you ask? We developed this product from scratch. Everything you see is brand new, developed with the spirits of young 20+ people eager to satisfy their users.

Ok, less talk and more action. Let us show you what we did:

Super Scan Speed

One of the most recognizable and favorite traits of our Zemana 2.0 was its fast scanner. It was designed to scan your PC in less than 5 min. But this time, we went even further.

We improved the scanning speed of ZAM 3.0 by decreasing it to 20 sec.

Sure, this depends on the state of your device.

Improved Detection

A bunch of our users wrote to us and expressed their discontent with our detection rate and removal efficiency in ZAM 2.0. So, it became obvious we needed to work on this feature.

We raised to the latest trends in technology and with the help of deep learning methods we successfully enhanced this part of our product.

Scanning in Safe Mode

Safe Mode scanning feature was not available in ZAM 2.0. Therefore, you will be happy to learn that we implemented this feature. From now on, with ZAM 3.0, you will be able to scan your PC in Safe Mode without any problems. We wrote more stuff about safe mode here.

Out with the Old, In with the New

We also gave a new, fresh look to our ZAM 3.0. We made the user interface simpler, friendlier, much more engaging, and effective in meeting your needs.

But there is one more very important part of Zemana AntiMalware 3.0 Beta.

We put our product road-map in your hands

We faced the reality and we like this new reality a lot. We listen to you guys, we talk, we implement what you like, we solve your problems. You are happy and we are even happier.

How did we do that?

We added a special Feedback section that appears after you perform a scan.

Here, you will be able to tell us:

  • if the product was successful in solving your problems or not
  • what kind of issues you experienced
  • what features you would like to see in the next versions of the product
  • basically, anything you want to tell us. You can even drop us a simple Hi.

We put our product road-map in your hands. You are the ones who will lay foundations and then it is up to us to craft and improve the product based on that foundation.

Transparent (Openness)

Being transparent and open about everything across the company is a new way of life at Zemana.

All our actions here at Zemana will be totally transparent and available to you. So, since this post is about Zemana AntiMalware, we would like to mention here that all development steps for this product will be open to you.

We have created a public board where you can see all bug reports, feature requests, ideas, feedbacks and many more. No need to describe it further, you can see it by yourself here.

New Way

Today is a big day for us. We are entering a new era for Zemana with a clear and straightforward vision.

Using our products should be simple, easy and satisfying. They should help you and solve your problems. We realized that the only way to grow is together with our users.

So, what now? Download Zemana AntiMalware 3.0 Beta and let’s rock.

Release Notes: Enjoy new Zemana Mobile Antivirus Cloud Scanner

The Zemana team (small but strong!)  pushes out new features, improvements and bug fixes based solely upon your feedback. To all our work and the improvements in ZMA that you see we  give credit to you aaaaaaand a little bit to us as well.

Up until now, to be honest we haven’t done such a great job on keeping you guys informed on what we are doing and what we plan to do with ZMA.

However, we decided to change that and now we have a blog category for release notes related to all our products including ZMA as well.

Every month Release Notes will highlight all the improvements we’ve launched, so you can easily stay up-to-date on what’s new.

So, let’s see what we have done.

ZMA v1.7.8 highlights




Cloud Scanner

Basically we decided to pump up our scan engine.

So, before this version everything was scanned locally. This means that we scanned all files in our own scanning engine which made it possible for users to scan all of their apps even offline which is more than great. Sure thing.

But, we had to add some wings.

This application had to fly even higher so natural result… Cloud scanner.


In order to use cloud scanning option you have to accept EULA agreement once you launch the application. In case you decline the EULA unfortunately you will be unable to access this feature. So, please make sure to accept it. You don’t want to miss it.


Ok, this is clear. Great. Let’s move on.

Cloud scanning feature is a great enhancement of our current scan engine. It improved the detection rate which is the most important thing.

So, once you are connected to the Internet we will scan with our engine and also we will scan on the Cloud. So, right now we will scan all your applications both locally and with the help of cloud as well.

What are we scanning?

We are scanning only installed applications so private files like documents, photos and similar are not scanned.

When we are scanning an application we are just scanning the logic of the applications and not the files the applications contains.

But locally we are scanning all your files with our own engine so your privacy is always protected.

We are not taking any user history in the Cloud also we don’t know which users is sending a request so we are only taking the fingerprint of the application. This is a hashcode unique for everything.

2. Easier access to menu bar


You no longer need to break your fingers to access the menu bar. We heard your bad feedback about it and we are truly grateful for that. We made it easier for you to access your licence info and settings menu on the top of the app.; What do you think about it?

3. What’s up next?

Currently we are working on Web Protection module, so stay tuned.

Happy Holidays and please share your feedback with us.
