iPhones aren’t immune from viruses, even though they don’t suffer as much as PCs. They can be afflicted by malware, scams involving phishing, and much more. This list of the top iphone antivirus applications offers options for blocking, scanning and securing your iOS device from online threats, such as websites that phish, insecure public Wi-Fi, apps that steal data web trackers, and more.

Apple has developed its operating system (OS), which runs on iPhones and iPads, to be one of most secure OSes for mainstream use. This is because of Apple’s strict process of vetting apps that requires developers to submit security details on their apps before being approved to run on Apple products. Its hardware design also lets every app to run in an sandboxed zone that blocks them from accessing other apps or files. This is partly due to the lack of demand for mobile malware from cyber criminals who prefer to attack Android smartphones (71% of the market) or desktop computers operating Windows (10 percent).

The top iPhone antivirus applications not only detect and block iPhone viruses, but also offer advanced Internet security features, such as a firewall, VPN, and data loss protection. The top iOS virus scanners are light, meaning they won’t slow your device down or drain your data plan.

Norton’s iPhone antivirus, for instance offers real-time detection of viruses and an interactive dashboard that shows the security status of your iPhone. It also blocks phishing sites and safeguards you from unwanted calendar invitations that contain malicious hyperlinks. In addition, it can remotely lock or wipe your phone in the event of loss or stolen. Another option to consider is Avira which comes with malware detection as well as a password manager, a VPN and photo cleaning tools. Both offer generous money-back guarantees.
