I recently purchased Malwarebytes & in set-up, it is asking for full Administrator access (ability to wipe my data, lock everything, etc). I'm hesitant to give a new app so much access. Is it safe/necessarily to do so?

I have been using Malwarebytes for ages now. It is very good at its job and has never caused any issues for me till now. But i have also never seen these "ability to wipe my data, lock everything, etc" fields as far as i can recollect. Are you interpreting these or actually seen them under the options?
If anything, it will actually help protect your data and prevent you from other threats.
