If a potential scammer attempted to contact you and Malwarebytes for iOS did not detect or block the call, report the scammer’s phone number to us. Reported phone numbers are sent to our researchers for investigation and blocked on your device.

You can report fraudulent numbers through the Malwarebytes for iOS settings, the iOS Phone app, or 3D Touch feature. Both methods are outlined below, including more Malwarebytes for iOS support topics at the bottom of the article.
