Owners of mobile devices with the iOS operating system know that this particular operating system is relatively invulnerable to viruses, but when the device is connected, for example, to a PC, there is a danger that a virus will get on the Iphone.
IOS mobile devices are among the most secure. The thing is that the iPhone's file system is closed from viewing, which means that no virus can harm a mobile device (if the factory firmware is installed). In the event that the owner of such a device has flashed the phone or installed programs not only from the official website (AppStore), then the probability of getting viruses on the phone increases significantly.
Of course, there are ways to scan a mobile device for viruses. This can be done either using antivirus software that is already installed directly on the user's computer, or using special antivirus software for the iPhone.
Checking with a personal computer
In the first case, you need to connect your mobile device to a personal computer using USB. After the computer detects it, you can run the antivirus installed on the PC and run a scan of the removable disk (phone memory card). At the end of the scan procedure, the antivirus will show the user all found vulnerabilities and found malicious software. Of course, this method is not the most convenient. The best thing is to download antivirus software for your mobile device from the AppStore and install it.
Antivirus for mobile devices
There are several of the most popular options, these are: Intego VirusBarrier X6, ESET Cybersecurity, Panda Antivirus, Norton AntiVirus. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Intego VirusBarrier X6 checks most archives and attachments, scripts, detects and recovers corrupted data, malicious software. The main advantage of this antivirus is that it performs a scan pretty quickly. ESET Cybersecurity is unable to disinfect archives and attachments, but fortunately, this software protects the user while surfing the Internet, thanks to special anti-phishing features. Among the main disadvantages, we can highlight the fact that, unlike the previous version, ESET Cybersecurity is rather slow. The functionality of Panda Antivirus, Norton AntiVirus is about the same, the only difference lies in the cost of these applications. It is worth noting that owners of computers with the MAC operating system can also use these antivirus programs.
