Login to the MC and navigate to Settings>Security>Protection Actions>Automatic Protection Against Network Content Threats. Click to expand Block phishing SMS messages and check the box. Hit the Apply Changes button on the banner that will appear on the top of the page. When the protection setting is active, there will be a green vertical bar with a checkmark directly to the left of the Protection Action.
