Description

Block scams and protect your privacy with Malwarebytes. Block disruptions like: • Phishing scams, tech support scams, and other malicious sites • Deceptive sites and other forms of suspicious content • Calls from known and suspected scammers • Ads and ad trackers which watch your behavior online • Fraudulent text messages Benefits: Premium ($1.49 per month, or $11.99 per year) • Block phishing sites, online scams, and other malicious sites with Web Protection. Browse the Internet with Safari without worrying about accidentally visiting a fraudulent site. • Ignore fraudulent calls with Call Protection. Get caller ID warnings or block incoming calls from known and suspected scammers, including “spoofing” calls that make their number appear similar to yours. Answer the calls that matter and skip the ones that don’t. Free • Block intrusive ads in Safari with Ad Blocking. Stop ad trackers from watching your behavior online and sending you targeted advertising. Browse the Internet with fewer distractions. • Ignore suspicious texts with Text Message Filtering. Forward fraudulent texts to a junk folder sent from a list of known scammers or containing phishing links. Focus on the messages that matter to you. iPad/iPod support: The current app is optimized for iPhone, but iPad and iPod users can still take advantage of Web Protection and Ad Blocking for a cleaner Internet experience in Safari. Future updates will include user interface improvements for iPad and iPod users. FAQs: Does Family Sharing cover premium features? No. Family Sharing only works on the free version of Malwarebytes for iOS. Premium features are limited to the purchaser’s Apple ID. To learn more about Family Sharing restrictions, head to the following link: https://support.apple.com/HT203046 I already purchased a multi-device Malwarebytes license, can I use it on Malwarebytes for iOS? No. iOS apps, like Malwarebytes for iOS, are only available on the App Store. If you have an unused product license that you'd like to use on Malwarebytes for iOS, please contact Malwarebytes support at Support-iOS@Malwarebytes.com to learn about your options. I already use Malwarebytes for my computer, can I just add an iOS device to my plan? No. Malwarebytes for iOS must be purchased on the App Store. Why doesn’t Malwarebytes for iOS include a malware scanner? It is not possible for an iOS app to scan for malware. Fortunately, the risk of getting malware on an iOS device is extremely low and Apple has a stringent review process regarding app admission into the App Store.

    For ipad it does nothing unless you cough up the $$
  • The best protection available for iOS.

    I had called AppleCare several times because I mistakenly opened some junk emails and it began to cause problems. Battery drain, long lag times, etc. I heard (unofficially) that many Apple people, both reps. and people in the community that this was the best, easiest, cheapest, and offered protection options that many others did not have available!! It is on the majority of my iOS devices. I would highly recommend checking out Malwarebytes. There is a free but limited version to download!! Give it a twirl!!
  • I expected more

    I expected so much more. I expected it to block all my robocalls: all my Microsoft Technical Support calls that promised to fix some bad code that would expose me to serious viruses if I didn’t use their services to fix that code; never mind that they couldn’t even identify my IP address, their tech gave me their IP address and I was supposed to think they were giving my IP. Interestingly enough though their IP was in India and that, of course, explained the tech’s heavy Indian brogue, much heavier than any Indian tech I ever spoke with from my phone company, my electric company, etc. Anyhow they made it clear they were not employed by Microsoft. Microsoft wouldn’t be calling anyway, their new Window 10 virus protection gives me excellent protection and any port they might try to break in with has already been closed by Windows. I’m not expecting this review to be used. I just want to make it clear robocalls of every sort still get through: card services, Florida time shares, win a cruise lottery, etc. Even the Police Fraternity calls me and when they ask for Joe Blow and I say Joe’s not here then they say that’s okay, you’ll do, that’s when it’s time to hang up.” Now I thought your monthly substitution fee was very very reasonable, but since I’m not getting the service I expected I don’t see any point in continuing your services and as soon as I figure out how to stop your service I will. I hope my experience was the exception. I hope other people are get the services they hoped to get. Maybe in the future I’ll try again.
  • Cancelling account

    By AzBlestmom
    Has not stopped most annoying calls - including IRS collection, “your computer is malfunctioning” and “your account has been suspended” calls. Does screen for a few that are using local prefixes ... I think. Not sure anymore. It warned me that a Chase Bank number that I had dialed was a suspected scammer. That’s enough. I question their database and now wonder if some of the few numbers they did block were not scammers but were legit.
  • Good idea, very poor execution.

    Doesn’t work properly and tech support won’t admit it. Good idea, very poor execution.
  • Crap

  • Great app

    By ztjosey
    Since I got this app I’ve only received one spam call compared to my typical 3-4 calls a day.
  • Still many spammers and scammers

    By Nomdeplume1405
    Also, when a “potential spam” call comes in the phone still rings! Really annoying! Why don’t you just block it in the first place or if you think It might be legit just log it but don’t let it ring? If the caller is “UNKNOWN” - I.e. no name or number- the call should be automatically blocked.
  • Lets a lot through

    By e_dantes
    Lets robocalls through more often then it blocks them. Save your money.
  • Top Protection

    I have used Malwarebytes for years. Total internet protection at its best.
  • Text still not working

    By CQ493
    6/3/19 update- The app continues to let every spam text into my normal message box. I wish this solution worked, but if it is as bad blocking calls as texts I can’t see paying for the service.
  • Secret Squirrel app

    By Rangesaf
    Says you have to upgrade but doesn’t tell you cost. I’ve always liked malwarebytes but not any more. Try being upfront about the secret in-app purchases.
  • Limited or no value

    1
    By qgdfsa
    Unsure of the value. Does not block real spammers. Since spammers spoof real numbers warns incorrectly. Not sure what web protection is in place that is already not built into Apple products. Overall price too high for value for iPhones

    Excellent program. Easy to use and keeps your devices safe from malware. I highly recommend purchasing this product.
  • Not catching anything

    By Netzstriker
    I don’t get too many spam calls, but when I do, this has not done anything, like the app is not installed.
  • One call

    By Tired of the hypes
    For the first time in ages I received only one call from scammers today!! And this is the third, and best, antiscamming company!! I still have to keep my phone on do not disturb, favorites only, setting. But at least for the first time, there seems to be progress. I hope it stays that way!!
  • Not that helpful

    2
    By Mcarma42
    I continue to have to input a number and request it to be blocked. There doesn't seem to be any automatic blocking or warning. Hiya is probably a better app. Also have to keep asking support for a support tool, doesn't seem to be one for my Mac or iOS unless it's just clicking on report to enter the phone numbers I want to quit calling me. I get at least 6 unwanted scam or spam phone calls every day that I have to write down so I can type them in to block them thru malwarebytes when I can just use my iPhone and have them blocked. Really can't say this service is anymore helpful. Also no way to report text messages that are phishing.
  • Still getting spam calls

    By Karmegi
    I’ve had this app for almost a month. I had intended on just using the free trial, but forgot to cancel, so I’m stuck with it for a year. I had my phone number changed due to the huge number of spam and telemarketing calls I was getting. I started getting them again, so I got this app to try it out. Seems like during the trial period, I didn’t get any. Now they are starting up again. I’ve reported them and also blocked them on my phone. Not sure the app is worth the money. I don’t see the results. It should be more proactive and SHOW you what they are not letting through. They need to step up theirs game or I’ll be cancelling before my subscription is up in 2020.
  • RE: Repeat # Changes.

    3
    By Happy Ho Lucky
    I keep getting calls from some pre recorded Prayer Message, Constantly and Continuously. I add it to the list, the # Gets changed, and I get the same call from a Different area code. It continues to happen and nothing Stops it??? This is just an Annoyance that continues and apparently No one or Nothing can Stop the annoyance. Not even Malwarebytes!! It’s probably worth $11.99 a year but I ain’t sure just exactly what it does for me n my I Phone??? 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️.
  • Useless for iPhone

    By RascalPgh
    I have this for my MacBook Pro and it allows you to scan whenever you want. I haven’t found the scan option on here but there are plenty of ads for new apps. I paid for this app and I can’t use it for what I need.
  • Don’t like the UI. Too basic with features. Still don’t know how to run a manual scan.

  • Malware bytes said my Rite Aid noitication was a scam

    2
    By Dishnetworkdealer
    ‭+1 (800) 748-3243‬ Is not a scam, it is the auto bot to let me know my prescriptions are ready for pickup at Rite Aid Pharmacy! Now how did Malwarebytes decide that this number was a scam. I missed the call and now my medicine is still waiting for me at my local pharmacy instead of me picking it up. I just wonder what else Malwarebytes is going to be getting wrong! Accuracy is extremely important in call blocking!

    I PAID FOR PREMIUM AND NOW I GET ALL THE SPAM CALLS AND TEXTS. I KEEP SEEING PEOPLE HAVING SAME PROBLEM. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME? I UPDATE THE APP EVERY DAY AND STILL GET 20 CALLS A DAY! THIS IS THE BEST SPAM AND MALWARE ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE. HOW CAN I GET IT TO WORK LIKE IT DID IN THE BEGINNING???
  • Wont work.

    Didn’t allow me to toggle on what I paid for because it was an iPad mini and not my phone. Not covered by my subscription with my iMac.

  • Phone Protection That Works

    Incredible protection from scam callers, solicitors, and unwanted calls. Keeps you that much farther away from becoming someone’s prey. Get it, it works!
  • Not good for iPad

    By Hilda Stranger
    Works fine on my other computers. Only asks to upgrade to paid subscription on the iPad. Doesn’t work on the iPad.
  • Awesome!!

    By Majhreid
    I’ve used malwarebytes on my computers for several years. Using it on my iPhone is a blessing in disguise. Intuitive. One of the most reliable I’ve found. Updates are frequent for iOS systems. Compatible with newest releases of iOS. Not super expensive to break the bank
  • Doesn’t work at all!

    By MissileChicago
    I have it enabled for call blocking, however several spammers get through and no indication that this app is helping at all!

    This App works best on Windows OS, always has and always will. I’m dealing with messages not being able sent or receive.
  • Overall fine

    By jazz doc
    Works transparently and seems to not conflict with other programs, the iOS, etc. I'm actually not sure exactly what it's doing. So, it would be better for me if it reported actions, malware intercepted, calls blocked and maybe once a week unless there's a lot of activity and one might want daily reports. Update 5/11/19 Got a very nice and speedy reply to my review, so I want to add excellent Custmer Support to my review. Too bad Apple renders some of Malwarebytes inactive. Hopefully we iPhone users might not need those features so much...? In any case, Malwarebytes'response is impressive and much appreciated!
  • Can't use license I bought

    I bought Malwarebytes. It’s working on my PC there’s no way to get it on my iPhone apparently. They want to sell me a separate one for my iPhone. Even though it says it works on mobile phones
  • Good

    I love this app I suggest paying for premium it’s like only a dollar and I love that so much it protects my search history and my phone
  • Security and peace of mind.

    By PWDgirl
    This app is everything it promises. Easy to use, clear information and peace of mind that malware is prevented. Learned about it when I had to consult Apple about malware pop-ups infecting my computer. Now my laptop, iPad and iPhone are covered. Thanks Malwarebytes!
  • I’ve been a loyal user with mediocre results

    By CWoody11
    I’ve used their products for many years on multiple devices and I have to say I’ve been moderately pleased with their results at best . I’ve used it on every device you can imagine and it’s one tool out of a security toolbox and a little tool at that.
  • No scan

    Was glad to see MWB added to iPhone apps. I have this on my computer, android tablet and now my iPhone. If your on the internet you need this software for protection.

    Update on the Call Block. It’s working as advertised. Labels the call as Known Scammer, sends to voicemail. Most don’t even bother leaving a message. It’s not catching every VoIP spoofer, but I didn’t expect 100% Long time subscriber for PC and hoping to love this app as much as I already love the Windows version. Will update in a month to confirm. As far as having to activate the protection, the Dashboard walks you through the process on installation.
  • Ineffective

    1
    By CAGamz
    Doesn’t seem to block calls or malware. Unfair you won’t allow subscription purchased on Mac OS to include mobile. That’s what we call “double dipping” and it pisses off customers and sends them to the competition. And my Mac paid version didn’t catch malware on my desktop but SOPHOS did. Disappointed.
  • Overcharge

  • Good but doesn’t catch many spam calls

    By j1e0
    Wish the db of spam calls was as good as their malware db, I just really wish someone could block 80%-90% of junk calls without me having to blacklist
  • Good but needs some work

    By WeathlyChelsea8808
    I’ve been getting spam text and calls so I download this app and when I activate the spam text it still says i needs to activate even though I did and when it finally worked I still got the spam text.
  • Stopped Filtering

    1
    By Tdubyu
    The first 4-5 days this seemed to be the perfect solution to a never-ending problem; unwanted spam calls. I watched as calls ringed in they would ring once and go to spam and then suddenly it just stopped filtering.
  • 3 different devices protected

    We need more or netter instructions to install on Different devices
  • Call protection does not work

    1
    By oldseminole
    I purchased the annual premium & installed this app since I like MWB on Windows. After a month of many reinstalls & following tech support suggestions, the call protection never worked. Neither Apple or MWB would refund my annual subscription. Also the app will not work with a vpn & browsers other than Safari. Don’t waste your money.
  • Great software
