Virus protect does not support my equipment

I'm using an Apple iPad mini running the latest software.

 

When I went to download the virus protect program I got the message that his devic is not supported

 

Am I doing something wrong or are iPads not supported

Hi,

No idea about Apple support but if you paste this into your web search engine you should find something suitable.

Re: Virus protect does not support my equipment

Hi there,

 

BT Virus Protect is just for Android devices and desktop computers runnnig Windows / OS X. They don't make a product for iOS. I would also be suspicious of any 'Antivirus' software for iOS devices - Apple lock down what Apps can do to the extent that it's very unlikely an iOS app would be able to detect a virus.

 

There's more info on iOS security and the use of Antivirus in this artcile, which also contains a useful PDF explaining more about how security works on iOS: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/03/24/ios_anti_malware_confusion/

 

Cheers,

Joe
