Burp suite on iOS 12 not working

Atheer Apr 17, 2019 10:55AM UTC


I'm trying to make an interception with my iOS device, I followed the tutorial here:

The web pages never load in the browser of my phone, which forced me to send the certificate via email and installing it. However, even after the installation of the certificate, the web pages never load on my browser and nothing shows in the interception as well. (Intercept is closed in case you guys are wondering)

What am I doing wrong here?
Thanks in advance!

Atheer, we’ve tested iOS 12 with Burp Suite and everything seems to be working.

Just to clarify, what do you mean by “intercept is closed”? Even with Intercept ON, you should still be able to access http://burp to download the certificate.

Which version of Burp are you using?

Which OS are you using? Is your device connected to the same network as Burp?

To answer the questions you answered:

- Burp Suite Community Edition V1.7.36
- OS: Windows 10 Pro Version 1803
- Yes my device is connected to the same network as Burp.

For the interception yes I understand that, I tried both just in case. In addition, as I said I downloaded the certificate manually but no web pages are loading still.

Do you see any errors in the Alerts tab in Burp?

No, there's no errors appearing. And the page in the phone's browser immediately stop refreshing and not work at all regardless of the url.

Please try accessing – this does not use HTTPS and should confirm if there’s a general network issue or SSL-related problem.

A common cause for this problem is that the network doesn’t allow peer-to-peer communication, or that a firewall on the computer running Burp is blocking connections.

After installing the certificate you need to get iOS to fully trust it.

Have you done the following: "Enable full trust for root certificates" as detailed here

"If you want to turn on SSL trust for that certificate, go to Settings > General > About > Certificate Trust Settings. Under "Enable full trust for root certificates," turn on trust for the certificate."

You need to fully trust certificate.
Go to general > about and tap the last field i.e certificate trust settings .

Toggle it on.

Next only few apps ll work.

To make all the apps work you need a workaround for ssl pinning bypass.
