    You cannot use the desktop antivirus software on your iPad. Your iPad is one of the most secure devices in the market. There is absolutely no need to have antivirus software installed on your iPad. This is because; all software and programs that can be installed on the iPad are tested before they are put on the App store. The iPad can have only those programs which are there in the App Store. This is valid if and only if your iPad is not Jail broken. Jail broken iPad can be affected by malware. As long as it is not jail broken it is a safe device.

    Sorry to say that , you are not allowed to use antivirus software on Desktop for iPad.
    iPad is the most secured & protected device.
    You do not need any other antivirus for this.
    If you have not jail broken your device then it is always protected.
    The app store will contain secure apps always.

    Dear,
    You can not use a Pc Antivirus for your I pad.
    Now if you are not using any third party app on your I pad & always preffer to download Apps from I store, you dont need to have any Antivirus.
    All the Apps available in I store are fully safe and Viruses free.
    Dont worry or still ,you will find lots of Anti viruses for your Device in I store.
    You can go for any of them.

    HI there,

    You cannot install any desktop antivirus in the iPad. As ipads apps have different extention and desktop have different.

    Also i want to tell you that you need not to install any ANTIVIRUS APP in iPad as all the apps which can be downloaded from the APPLE STORE are first checked for the threats before making it available to download.

    But if you still need an antivirus then you may download an app ANTIVIRUS LITE from the apple app store and then install it .

    Regards!!!!

    till the time your iPad is not jailbroken, it doesn't need any kind of protection as it's absolutely secured.
    this is because the apps in the iPad can only be downloaded from the Apple app store, and they're all secured.
    but when your device is jailbroken, then you can download any antivirus software-recommended KASPERSKY.
    all the best.

    U cannot use an Antivirus software on desktop for iPad.

    iPad is one of the secure devices available in the market.

    the apps that are available for the iPad are put in the app store after they are checked only.

    U cannot use any apps other than in app store.

    U can use other apps by jail breaking the iPad.

    Once u jail breaked the iPad it will be a malware.

    As long as your iPad is not jail breaked Antivirus is not required

    Hope it helps u

    why do yo need the antivirus for iPad
    it is the most secure device.
    and you don't require any antivirus for iPad until you have not jailbroken it.
    so just don't install any type of antivirus if you have not jailbroken it..
    but in case if you have done it the
    quickheal
    avast
    appsecurity
    will be better options for you then any others...
