    No. The nature of iOS means that such security is unnecessary.

    No problem.


    The reason for this is that iOS is locked down tight. It has taken months to come up with a jailbreak and this gives an indication of how difficult it would be to write and propagate a virus.

    Also, any virus protection would have to hook into the OS, and Apple will simply not allow this.

    Same goes for malware/spyware. It can't hook into Safari, so it can't hijack your browsing.

    IF, and this is a very big if, there are ever any viruses written for iOS you WILL be able to read about it here. I guarantee we will be all over it.
