When Text Message Filtering is turned on, Malwarebytes for iOS detects SMS spam messages and sorts them into Transactions, Promotions, and Junk on your iPhone.
Apple does not provide a method for third-party apps, like Malwarebytes for iOS, to determine whether their spam filtering is turned on in Messages. As a result, the Malwarebytes for iOS Dashboard cannot display statuses regarding Text Message Filtering. To see how Text Message Filtering works in Malwarebytes for iOS, refer to Security of Text Message Filtering in Malwarebytes for iOS.
