Scammers use several tactics to avoid being identified, from changing phone numbers to spoofing caller ID information. To protect you from potential scammers, we regularly update our list of known scammers and recommend you:
- Turn iOS Call Protection on
- Customize Call Protection in Malwarebytes for iOS
- Report a fraudulent number with Malwarebytes for iOS
Call Protection does not block phone numbers that are saved to your iOS device's Contacts. You should delete any scammer phone number that is saved to your Contacts. For instructions, refer to Apple's article Manage and delete contacts on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
