Is it possible to scan iPhones for viruses, malware, trojans, rootkits and ransomware?

I have a subscription with F-Secure SAFE solution, will this product be able to scan for these things?

    Hi @WinTux

    Thank you for your post.

    F-Secure SAFE for iOS does not have a manual scanning feature on Apple iPhone or iPad devices. The F-Secure SAFE application functions as a secure browser and it has browsing protection and banking protection features.  

    Apple states: iOS is designed to be reliable and secure from the moment you turn on your device. Built-in security features protect against malware and viruses and help to secure access to personal information and corporate data. Jailbreaking your device eliminates security layers designed to protect your personal information and your iOS device. With this security removed from your iOS device, hackers may steal your personal information, damage your device, attack your network, or introduce malware, spyware or viruses.

    Thank you and stay safe.
