Malwarebytes iOS 1.0.18: clarifications on new features

Recommended Posts

I have now downloaded Malwarebytes iOS 1.0.18 and as a changelog it says that there is a new web protection feature.
What changes from version 1.0.13? In fact already that version blocked suspicious and malicious sites.
I ask this to be able to evaluate the new function and eventually send feedback.
I thank those who will give me clarification on this
Greetings

@MAXBAR1 Web Protection feature now works using the local DB, instead of using the old VPN hook. 

we got limited by apple on using the VPN function for displaying the block page, web protection is now limited to Safari only.

I thank you for explaining the difference in functionality. For me it is not a problem because both MacOS and iOS use only Safari

It's been several days now and I'm not seeing a 1.0.18 update in TestFlight? Still on 1.0.13(1).

I do not understand the reason: anyway this morning TestFlight notified me the update to version 1.0.19 that I promptly made266B651D-9545-409C-A9F5-7DE79A55B9BE.thumb.jpeg.6a11936c0ee6414b6a872d4783e59ce2.jpeg

So I’m still on v0.13(1), v1.0 has been released to the AppStore but it still doesn't show as an update in either TestFlight or the AppStore.

Should I delete my beta version, so that I will be able to obtain the release version?

@alvarnell you can continue using the 1.0.13 as you are still getting latest databases updates via backend, a newer version of beta is in works but I don't have an ETA.

if you would like to upgrade to a stable version with better UI/UX, you can download the latest from App Store.

You're definitely welcome to stay on the beta as well. We'll be updating that before it expires.

That's what I want to do, but obtaining the current release version would require me to delete 1.0.13 and I assume lose the premium functions in the process. So you are saying that if I did, I should still receive an invitation for the next beta which would restore premium functions?

I think the safest course for me is would be to stick with 1.0.13 until the next beta release.

Actually, betas in TestFlight are quite handy... you can delete the beta app, replace with the official app, and then switch back later all you like. TestFlight will continue to allow you to download betas, and you'll continue to get new betas as well.
