Malwarebytes Introduces Malwarebytes for iOS

SANTA CLARA, Calif.July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Malwarebytes™, the leading advanced malware prevention and remediation solution, announced today the release of Malwarebytes for iOS. The release continues the company’s commitment to provide true, multi-platform protection and includes four powerful security features to make users’ mobile experiences faster, safer and more private. The software is free with additional premium features available via in-app subscription and is available for download from the Apple App Store.

“Our customers rely on Malwarebytes solutions to keep them safe and we’re excited to offer a new product to help protect against scams and other annoyances that target their iOS devices,” said Thomas Reed, director of Mac and Mobile at Malwarebytes. “We are pleased to be able to deliver a unique mobile product that goes far beyond simple browsing protection. This new offering is the only iOS security software that combines protection from fraudulent calls, scam texts and malicious websites in one convenient app, while also blocking intrusive ads and ad trackers that invade your privacy.”

Four Key Security Benefits in One Trusted Application

  • Premium Version (30-day free trial period, then $1.49 per month or $11.99 per year – based on user’s choice of subscription)
    • Blocks malicious sites with Web Protection, protecting users from phishing and fraudulent destinations, online scams and other web-borne threats while in Safari.
    • Call Protection provides caller-ID warnings or blocks incoming calls from known and suspected scammers including ‘spoofed’ calls that make their number appear similar to yours. Users can be confident in answering the calls that matter, while skipping the fraudulent calls that don’t.
  • Premium and Free Versions
    • Ad Blocking blocks intrusive ads in Safari. The application also offers protection from ad trackers which watch and log a user’s online history and behavior. As a result, users may browse the Internet with fewer distractions, faster load times and greater privacy.
    • With Malwarebytes for iOS, users can easily ignore suspicious texts with Text Message Filtering. The application forwards fraudulent texts from known scammers or texts containing phishing links to a resident junk folder, minimizing invasive and annoying text spam and letting users focus on the messages that matter most.

iPad/iPod Support
The current app and its full set of features and functionality are optimized for iPhone customers, but iPad and iPod users can take advantage of Web Protection and Ad Blocking in the application for a safer, faster internet experience while in Safari. Future updates will include user interface improvements intended for iPad and iPod users.

Subscription Details
Users starting a Premium subscription will be charged through their iTunes account at the end of the free 30-day trial period. Annual and monthly subscription rates are available at $1.49 per month or $11.99 per year. Subscriptions will automatically renew at least 24 hours prior to the end of the current subscription period. Users can manage their subscription or turn off auto-renewal after purchase in their Account Settings within iTunes.
