I have no doubt that the po po could if wanted watch everything anyone did on their I phone .. Is there such thing as anti virus software for iPhone

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1

    None available, none required.

    I know the iOS , and basically all things mac are a closed system and there for apparently impenetrable but apple could mirror you phones activity so surely someone some where has the same capability

    The "po po"? If you are worried about the police tapping your phone you have bigger problems in your life than can be solved with anti-virus software.

    I was using the po po as an example. Apple could bug ya phone no problem at all, there's bound to be a back in for apple, so as a law enforcement agency the po po would also have same back door VIP passes... I was just thinking there is a possibility the trick to get the VIP back door access could be leaked.. It's not impossible

    I think your tin-foil hat may be a little too large. If you are so concerned with personal anonymity, get rid of all technology, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, credit cards, store loyalty cards, etc, etc.

    You've now asked this question three different times in slightly different ways. The answer is still the same. If you don't jailbreak your phone, you are as safe as you can be. There is no antivirus software for the iPhone. If law enforcement has some sort of "backdoor", it is unlikely that commercial antivirus software would be able to help you anyway. In the U.S., court decisions seem to be trending that the police are required to get warrants to track you using GPS or similar.


    On a personal note, although I can't speak for the members of law enforcement I know who frequent these forums, I think "po po" is just a bit rude.

    Yes I suppose getting rid of all tech trickery would be the only way, it's terrifying how much we are monitored in all aspects of just everyday life... They even know what toilet paper ya wipe ya bum with and how often.. I suppose if ya ain't doing owt dodge it don't matter how much or privacy is invaded .. Actually privacy is becoming extinct , it doesnt really exist anymore does it.. Just another human right we've lost

    I thought po po was quite a polite term.. Better than filth , bobbies , coppers , pc plod

    Regardless of getting access to what is on your phone, the authorities can get access to your internet usage, messages, emails, phone log, phone calls, voicemails, etc.: anything that is transmitted to/from your phone through your ISP or phone company or that passes through or is stored on servers outside of your phone is potentially available for monitoring without anyone having to install anything on your phone.


    "Po po" may or may not be a derogatory term for "police" but, to me, it sounds like something a two year old would say. You know, like "da da" and "ma ma" and "poo poo". I have no idea how a two-year-old's version of "police" became urban slang.

    Po po , is a American term . Over here we call em dibble.

  • Badunit Level 6 (11,615 points)

    We are getting way off topic here but "dibble" comes from Charlie Dibble, the policeman from the Top Cat cartoon from the early 1960's. It is interesting that it, too, is child-based slang.

    Antivirus software for the iPhone, even if it existed, would do nothing to prevent surveillance by the "po po" (or Disney).  Once your phone is connected for cell service it can be tracked and conversations intercepted. "They" don't have to install anything on your phone to do so.


    The best you can do is add audio encryption software so that only the intended recipient could understand  you, but you would have to jb the phone and AFAIK, no such software is commercially available.

    If you know this then isn't your question redundant?

    And I don't know about you, but in reality? No one but myself knows what kind of tp I use...except for the clerk at the store where I purchase it, and I highly doubt they have a direct line to ANYONE to let them know.

    You sound bored.

    If you're not doing anything against the law wherever you live, then you've got nothing to worry about, right?

    And po-po isn't an 'American term', (that implies that we ALL use it on a regular basis). I've been an American my whole life and never used that term. You must be watching too much American TV.

    He heard it in some hip-hop on the radio.  You're just not with it...
