Due to security restrictions on iOS, it is not possible for any app to scan the system or other apps for malware. Apps are not allowed those kinds of permissions, and for that reason, antivirus software on iOS is not possible.

 

Malwarebytes for iOS does not - and cannot - scan the device for malware. Instead, it provides other protections for iOS users:

 

  • Protection from scam websites
  • Protection from scam phone calls
  • Protection from scam text messages
  • Ad blocking

 

If you think that your iOS device has been compromised in some way, please post details on our Malwarebytes for iOS forum.
