Hi new to apple,iPad,and forum. Can you recommend a good security apps,thank you
Yes - Lookout - free - excellent and on App Store.
"Find my phone" can also be obtained from iTunes Store.
It all depends what sort of security you want and whether you are Jailbroken or not.
If you are worried about malware, viruses & such Jack, you needn't be. The iPad doesn't have a problem in that area. At all.
Neither of those apps exist, we'll not in the Aussie App Store at least.
What is a security app?
Sorry dhewson777 but Avast has been withdrawn but try on your PC going to www.mylookout.com
Well, I get an access denied, but that was within the IPF app on my iPad.
I did find one once, but all it did was scan a single file on demand, ie. a email attachment, etc. there is no true anti -virus software for the iPad that works like the ones people are familiar with on PCs.
iPads cannot get viruses. Not in the traditional sense. Apps are sandboxed, which means one app cannot mess around with another app or its data.
The only known malware attacks have been on Jailbroken devices using an ssh attack.
You not need to worry about viruses.
what about unwanted emails going out to maillist?
What would send emails from your iPad automatically without you running an app?
