Webroot iOS/iPhone

I cannot install Webroot on my iPhone or iPad.



At this time, there is not an antivirus option available for Apple iOS devices. Because of how Apple manages the apps available in their App Store, there is not a need for one currently. This may change in the future but at this time it is extremely hard/almost impossible to infect an iPad/iPhone.
Please note as mentioned above since there is no antivirus available for these devices, they will not be listed in the Mobile Security section of the online management account. If you are using the Backup & Sync app, only included in SecureAnywhere Complete subscriptions, then you will see the device listed in the Backups section of the online management account.
Webroot does offer two apps you can download from the App Store to backup your files and protect your Internet browsing, called SecureWeb and Backup & Sync. You can find either of them by searching for "Webroot" in the App Store on your Apple iOS device. For more information on both of these products please use the information below:
Webroot SecureWeb
Webroot Backup & Sync (for SecureAnywhere Complete subscriptions only)
But here is more in-depth information for Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete for iOS,
First, let's make sure you're following these instructions for installing Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Plus or Webroot SecureAnywhere Complete.
