Installing Burp's CA Certificate in an iOS Device

Before you start:

With Burp running on your computer, visit http://burp in your iOS device browser and click the "CA Certificate" link.

You will be prompted with a message in the “Install Profile” window. Tap “Install”.

You will then be prompted with a warning message. Again, tap “Install”.

A further message will appear entitled “Install Profile”. Again, tap "Install".

 

The Burp CA certificate should now be installed in your iOS device. Tap “Done”.

On some versions of iOS you may need to go to "Enable Full Trust for the PortSwigger CA".

You can configure this setting at Settings > General > About > Certificate Trust Settings.

You should now be able to visit any HTTPS URL via Burp without any security warnings.
