Unfortunately, Due to some restrictions set by Apple (makers
of the iOS devices including your iPhone) that was implemented on iOS Version 9
(and higher), the permission of one Application to check other Applications
that co-exist within the same device has been removed. With this, the Trend
Micro App is now restricted to perform any scans.

But no worries, since most attacks come from the
Internet, users can utilize the Safe Surfing feature of the app for safer
Internet browsing.

Mobile Security for iOS has a feature called Safe Surfing
that can provide security to your device and at the same time protect you from
malicious activities.

Safe Surfing is a secured browser that filters and
provides protection against unsafe and unwanted websites. With Safe Surfing,
you can do the following:

Browse the internet with peace of mind.

Stay safe before visiting websites by Scanning a Webpage
in Safari Web Browser.

Check the safety of the website by Scanning a URL before
navigating to it.

You can refer to this link for the detailed guide on how
to Setup the SafeSurfing on your iOS Device:

Using SafeSurfing with Mobile Security for iOS

Also, aside from this, the Trend Micro Mobile Security App also has the
following features: Data Usage Monitor, Social Network Privacy feature, Backup
& Restore (for your contacts).
