Free apps for phone and pad
I downloaded the free app for my new Galaxy III. Worked like a charm. I can check the app and see the message "you are protected". Perfect. I installed the free app for my iPad 2. No joy. I never got any requests to synch it with my account. It shows it is installed but I don't have any idea what else I should see to be sure. Should I see messages like I do on my phone to let me know it is "protected"? When I look at my account, the only device that shows is the phone. Somebody please tell me what I am doing wrong or not doing.

The only apps from us that are available on iDevices are SecureSync and SecureWeb.
SecureWeb is a web browser that has all of the features Howard listed above. It actively protects you from visiting malicious websites when you use it as your browser.
SecureSync is a backup and sychronization program that helps users already subscribed to Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete for their PC to transport files to the iDevice and vice-versa. If that is the app you are referring to, please see the user guide for it here. You must have a subscription to Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete for that app to work for you.
If you tap into the address bar and enter a web address, you will notice it takes you to web sites. The features Howard mentioned above are used during the process of browsing the internet via the app.
This thread is related to your question as well if you have further questions about why we do not have an "antivirus app" for iDevices.
I'd like to be the first to Welcome you to the Webroot Community :D
The Webroot SecureAnywhere applications for iOS devices differ from those we offer` for Android. This is due to the closed ecosystem of the iOS. We do hope to offer an antivirus product in the future. What you do get with SecureAnywhere for iOS devices is the SecureWeb app which provides the following protection:
allows you to access all your synchronized files, music, and photos stored on other computers and devices.
I hope this better explains things for you and if you have any other questions, please feel free to post them and we would be happy to help. Here is the top level Forum for our iOS products which provides you with a lot of other information . https:///t5/Webroot-Mobile-for-iOS/bd-p/ios-trouble
