Should the iptest page work on iOS Mobile Security?


Recommended Posts

I’ve been trying to validate that I have the Web Protection correctly enabled on an iPad by going to http://iptest.malwarebytes.com but only ever get the protection is disabled message. Web Protection shows that it is enabled in the Safari Content Blockers and the Malwarebytes app also shows that Web Protection is enabled (and that I have a premium account). I’ve restarted the device and Safari and toggled Web Protection on/off to no effect.

Does anyone know whether the iptest page is actually supposed to work with the Mobile Security product? As is, it seems like it’s not working unless the test page is only intended for the desktop products.

I can't locate anywhere on the Malwarebytes site where it recommends the use of the iptest page or exactly what IP protection is. Are you sure that IP Protection is the same thing as Web Protection? Where are you finding any of this?

The Macintosh client does not have Web Protection like a Windows client

Web Protection utilizes the Malwarebytes database of suspicious and malicious websites to assure you do not unknowingly become a victim while using your Safari browser. A Premium subscription is required to activate this feature. For more information, see Purchase Malwarebytes Premium subscription for iOS devices.

This is the documented way of verifying that Web Protection is enabled for Windows https://support.malwarebytes.com/hc/en-us/articles/360038524934-Verify-Malwarebytes-for-Windows-can-block-malicious-websites

I would have expected the database of malicious sites would be similar or the same for both and that the test page would still be able to diagnose that Web Protection is working correctly.

So the question is, is that true? Should it?
