May I know where did you receive the phishing email? Is it from the Mail app of your device?

Hi, The email on my ipad was through my gmail app but this same email didn't make it through the Trend Micro Security on my PC so that's why I am wondering if I have done something wrong  or didn't do something on my ipad.

Hello Senior 1!

Thank you for your response with this concern.

As for your concern, this is possibly because the Trend Micro software you have on your PC has the Anti-spam Toolbar enabled which would block spam emails detected by the software. The spam emails that will be blocked will be sent directly to your Spam folder created by the Trend Micro software.

The reason why it went through your gmail application in your iPad is because the Trend Micro Mobile Security for iOS devices doesn't have this specific feature. 

For more details about the Anti-spam Toolbar, please refer to the link below.

Using the Antispam Toolbar of your Trend Micro Security

Hope this information helps you.
