VirusBarrier iOS

Anyone who tells you that Macs and iPhones don’t get malware is misinformed. Apple argues that its products aren’t as susceptible to malware as other platforms. Security pros will tell you this is bunk, and that Apple OSes are protected via “security through obscurity.” In other words, malware writers favor Windows and Android because they have larger market shares.  VirusBarrier iOS is the first anti-virus app approved for iOS. The app scans your phone  for viruses, and also scans any incoming attachments. Android users who switched to the iPhone 5 might think this app is pretty primitive. It doesn’t allow for automatic scheduling of scans, nor does it automatically quarantine or delete any malware it finds. It does alert you to malware, if it finds it, and then you’re pretty much on your own.
