Hi lucylucy42


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Your iPad will not be automatically protected just because you have installed.


At this time, there is not an antivirus option available for Apple iOS devices. This is because of how Apple manages the apps available in their App Store...so there is not a need for one currently. This may change in the future but at this time is is extremly hard/almost impossible to infect an iPad/iPhone


Webroot does, however, 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 following links:


Webroot SecureWeb

Webroot Backup & Sync (for SecureAnywhere Complete subscriptions only)

You can also look HERE for product infomation...note that SecureWeb is free.


To download the SecureWeb app:


  1. If you have not yet created a Webroot account, go HERE. Click 'Sign up now' to begin creating the account.
  2. Open the App Store on your device and search for “Webroot SecureWeb.” Tap to install the app.

    Alternately, you can download and install the SecureWeb app from iTunes from HERE.
  3. Enter your Apple ID password.

    The SecureWeb app opens and installs on your device. Once installed, you will see the Webroot SecureWeb icon on your Home panel. Tap this icon to open the app.(Webroot SecureWeb for iOS Help).
Hopefully this gives you the information that you are looking for but if you have further questions please post back here with them.
