No. Family Sharing only works on the free version of Malwarebytes for iOS. Premium features are limited to the purchaser’s Apple ID. To learn more about Family Sharing restrictions, head to the following link: https://support.apple.com/HT203046 I already purchased a multi-device Malwarebytes license, can I use it on Malwarebytes for iOS? No. iOS apps, like Malwarebytes for iOS, are only available on the App Store.

    I paid for premium months ago, and I still don't have access to the premium features. I have tried to contact them numerous times, but I've never heard back from them.

    It does not provide a log that users can access to see what has been blocked. How do I know it’s doing anything without a log? Has not stopped robo calls for me. I still get robo calls at least once a day. The numbers are spoofed because they are almost always similar to my own number.
  • Likely gives out your phone number to spammers

    I downloaded the app and started paying for membership a couple months ago, and put in my phone number. Not long after, maybe a day or so, I got my first scam IRS call. I blocked the number and moved on, didn’t get more scam calls after that (the app blocked a couple numbers). I got a new phone number recently and reactivated this app on my new phone, and entered my new phone number. A day later I got a scam call again. I haven’t entered my new number on any websites or services. Not even my employer has my new number yet. Forgive me for being suspicious, and if I’m missing something here I am more than happy to receive an explanation and change my mind.
  • What Does It Do?

    I have yet to see anything this app does. I continue to receive spam phone calls so nothing has changed. If I have to copy every unwanted call into the app, I can just as easily block the call in my iPhone. Can’t remember what I paid for the app, but I’m dumping it.
  • Says I have free when I paid premium.

    Not working properly.
  • A pale shadow of the desktop version

    I don’t really like the mobile version- it seems like it’s an advertisement for the desktop or premium version as you have very little to no control over the app. I’ve only had it a short time but it doesn’t seem to actually do anything- no reports, don’t see a way to really control it or scan anything. I think I’m going to delete the app and instead go with a good vpn, the desktop version rocks and maybe the Android version does as well but the iOS version seems more like adware to me. And in light of the developers comments that it is not possible to scan for malware In iOS my question to them is: Why install this app at all? You just told me it doesn’t work, so why waste resources on my phone for an app that is essentially adware?
