@pablozi iOS has encryption by default, as long as you have a secure PIN and/or Touch ID.

You can find a few trusted content and tracker blockers for Safari, or the Adblock Plus browser as a replacement.

Don't worry about NOT having an Anti-Malware app for iOS, I don't think such exists - last I checked.

As of this post, 9.3.3 is the latest update.

There are antivirus apps such as norton, trend micro, lookout, and more for ios. IMO people should have a security app on their phones. It is very possible for a normal iphone to be infected, you don't have to jailbreak it to be infected. I always come accross people infected with ransomware on their iphone (of course not jailbroken). While it is rare it can happen.

There really isn't. There is no realtime antivirus/antimalware solution for iOS. The only thing these apps can do on iOS is provide anti-theft and contact/picture backup.
On point. Some of them provide battery management, browser anti-fraud, and password-protected folders. None of them provide real-time or on-demand protection though.

Usually it's browser based ransomware, which be cured.
There are no Antivirus or AntiMalware apps for iOS, they were removed over a year ago.

Right . But some of them provide a vault for photos, but don't know if it is really useful : I mean it would be useful if it was reliable against backdoors , but I don't think they are so frequent ( iOS 9.3.5 solved the last known issue) . And as far as celebs stolen photos are concerned , I think they stole them from iCloud


Oh well you can add two step verification to iCloud !
