Traditionally, Apple products have never required anti-virus software. Any apps developed for iPhones are required to go through an extraordinarily stringent testing process in the Apple labs to ensure its virus free and meets their strict community guidelines. Recently, however, certain users have reported occasional attacks, especially those who (through a process call jaibreaking) have changed their default operating system in order to download third party apps.
While this process can be tempting for those who like to push the envelope of their phone, it also leaves your device wide open for malware.

Scans and backups can be scheduled, which is impressive, as is the level of APP security: Lookout scans all the APPS you’ve installed already for possible security breaches.

4- Dr Web
This popular anti virus regularly scored above 90% in Tech Advisor reviews, meaning it’s highly effective at keeping your system safe. Dr Web is the brainchild of a Russian anti malware company and is quickly earning itself a reputation for reliability, though some reviewers suggest the ‘light’ version is not quite powerful enough.
