@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.

I am not worried at all my friend as there are no such tools available for iOS and even if they were I still will not use none of them since I am quite happy with my Common Sense Total Security Total :D:cool:
Exactly my point, just make sure to update when possible, and even if you forget iOS will remind you (or schedule later).

Just putting in my two cents if there was an apple malware removal app I would get it personally. Considering Macs can be infected nothing at this point in time is 100% invincible. Even if hackwers can't breakthrough get time will come eventually.

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 !
