iPhone mobile security
Mobile security applications for Apple's iOS mobile operating system help protect Apple iPhone smartphone and iPad tablet mobile devices from malware threats as well as unauthorized access following accidental loss or theft of the device.
Additional security features frequently offered by iPhone mobile security apps include scanning websites for potential phishing schemes or other fraudulent activity, storing passwords and other confidential information securely, VPN connectivity for protecting data in transit, helping users locate their device if lost or stolen, and more.
The most prominent iPhone mobile security application is one that's integrated into the iOS mobile OS. The iOS Find My Phone built-in application will help locate a lost phone or tablet on a map and can also remotely lock the phone or erase all the data on it to keep the data from being viewed by others.
Like the Find My Phone app, most of the well-known iPhone mobile security applications are built into iOS, but third-party security vendors such as Lookout, Kaspersky and Avira offer additional iPhone mobile security features and data protection for iPhones and iPads.
