Having a smartphone means that we are endlessly staring at screens, but what we may have overlooked is the amount of personal data stored on our devices, making our phones a tempting target for scammers and phishers. Well, now there is an app for you to protect yourself better against the aforementioned threats.

Malwarebytes has released a version of their anti-malware tool for your iOS device, which means you can now block scams and protect your privacy whilst on the move. Although the app is free and available for download from the Apple Store, the premium features are available at a cost, either a monthly or annual subscription.

With the free version (without a subscription), you are limited to two modules. The ad blocking module will block annoying ads when browsing the web using Safari. This also offers protection from ad trackers which log your activity. The theory is, you will be able to browse the internet faster, with fewer distractions, and be assured your data is not being shared. Another free feature is text message filtering. The app creates a junk folder to which it forwards fraudulent looking texts from scammers or texts which contain phishing links. This way you will also reduce the amount of spamming, invasive and annoying texts from various advertisers.

With the paid-for premium version, you can expect more. The Web Protection module blocks malicious sites, protecting you from phishing and fraudulent websites, online scams and other threats while you're surfing using Safari. Additionally, and particularly exciting, is the Call Protection feature which provides caller-ID warnings or blocks incoming calls from spammers and 'fake' numbers which appear to be familiar and make it more likely you'll answer your phone.

Malwarebytes for iOS is currently limited to the US.

Verdict:

If you've ever had scam calls and annoying texts then this app is definitely worth a try.
