Even if the Malwarebytes SMS filter is deactivated in the message settings, it is not possible to deactivate the SMS filter switch in Malwarebytes (the problem should be solved if it’s possibile). On the other hand, the functions of Web Protection (the expected test works correctly), Ad and Tracker Protection (no more banners appear on websites), Send Anonymous Telemetry are excellent. Keep it up ... Congratulations.

I enclose two screenshots that display the anomaly on SMS filters

as you can see the settings do not agree between the two screens of the iPhone

Appears to me to be a simple cosmetic flaw. Perhaps I don't get enough SMS Spam to know whether enable/disable in Messages works or not, but seems to be working as designed, just that the app switch doesn't change when disabled.

Please keep in mind that the UI in this version of the software is bare bones, and is not at all what the final UI will be.

In particular, it's important to note that Apple provides no way for us to set any of the four features, with the exception of web protection. The other three must be set by manually navigating to the proper location in Settings. Further, for SMS protection, Apple gives us no visibility at all into the status of that setting, so the switch for that setting is just a dummy.

if I activate the SMS filter this alert, that I have attached, appears  (I apologize for the fact that it is not in English); I would like clarification, if possible, on this matter. Is it truthful to say that the author of the filter can read the messages? I refer in particular to the verification codes of banks or other organizations and to sensitive information.

I await a reply.

Thanks

Greetings

We've got a KB article that will be going live in another week or so that discusses that, but basically:

1) iOS will never share information with us about messages sent from people in your Contacts

2) iOS sends the information on messages from unknown senders directly to our server, rather than to our app, and that does not include recipient information, so we actually have absolutely no way to link the message content back to a particular user or device

3) If the message isn't identified as malicious, it's discarded immediately and is never stored on our system

We'll be able to share more details soon.

For more information about how this feature of iOS works, see:

For the moment, I thank you; if you can publish the link to the KB article above in this post as an answer as soon as it is ready.
For the moment, I keep the SMS filter deactivated (awaiting further clarification) and the call filter (because if I did not understand it, it only works in the USA and not in UE).
In the future I will see; in itself I consider particularly valid web protection, AD and Tracker protection and sending Anonymous Telemetry that should be implemented as soon as possible even in macOS (I know you can not anticipate anything, but I still hope).
Thank you
Greetings
