Bitdefender Mobile Security for iOS Review: Pros & Cons, Features, Ratings, Pricing and more

Your iPhones and iPods aren’t nearly as vulnerable to malware as most devices, but they can’t offer any safety guarantees. You’ll still face a number of privacy and security risks just about every time you turn your device on.

Bitdefender Mobile Security for iOS (opens in new tab) offers extra layers of protection for you and your data. The free version includes a limited (200MB per day, can’t choose a location) VPN to shield your web activities from snoopers; a data breach monitor to raise the alarm if your email address shows up on the dark web, and a vulnerability scanner to check for network and device security issues.

Although this didn’t exactly blow us away, it’s a reasonable feature set which is broadly comparable with other free iOS security apps. Panda Dome for iOS has decent parental controls and anti-theft, for instance, but its VPN only gives you 150MB a day. Avira Mobile Security’s VPN allowance is a measly 100MB a day, but it makes up for that with a call blocker and network scanner. The big name iOS apps all have something to offer, but there’s not a lot between them on the features front.
