Malwarebytes for iOS beta 1.1.0 (5.8) ends in a month. Since it is not yet present in Italy on the AppStore for the reasons already mentioned in other posts, how should we behave with regard to starting from 25 October 2018?
Is there a release in Italy or will a new beta come out giving a further 90 days trial?
Thank you

There will be a new public beta before that one expires.

As for when we can expand into other countries, that depends entirely on when we can get the phone number database up to speed for the countries in question. Currently, the database is mostly +1 numbers, and does not provide adequate protection for countries not using phone numbers in the North American Numbering Plan.

You can certainly keep those features active if you like, but it's up to you. It depends on whether you get a lot of calls or texts from US-based scammers. We would certainly appreciate it if you would report any scam calls you get, though! Currently, there is no way to enter an Italian phone number in the app for reporting, but you can report here so we can investigate.

In fact, I'd definitely be interested in hearing more in general about the kinds of scam calls and texts you receive in Italy!

Unfortunately, filtering e-mails is out of scope for this app. There's no way to do that without actually connecting to your e-mail server and reading all your e-mails, which can have a heavy toll on battery life and data usage. This is better done with IMAP accounts on the server or on your desktop computer, but does mean you will see some spam when checking mail on your iPhone.

Unless Apple provides APIs for Mail - which seems unlikely, given their recent stance on privacy protection - it's not really something we feel very comfortable with.
