Hi Using iPad,

Whether I have to install an antivirus software like McAfee, Norton, Quickheal etc. to make my iPad mini overall secure or not? What are the usual security tips to make iPad mini secure?


iPad mini, iOS 6.1.4

There is no AV software for the iPad.

The way iOS works, apps cannot access system files or data from other apps.

AV software cannot see other files or apps and scan them.

 

The stuff calling itself AV software in the store only scans files opened in the app itself.

It looks for windows viruses which cannot run on the iPad.
