AVG Antivirus for iPhone

AVG Antivirus for iPhone

You cannot use AVG Antivirus for iPhone. iOS doesn’t allow any Antivirus program to operate on your device, so it is not possible to install any Antivirus or Anti-malware application on an iOS device. Apple’s iOS software, by itself, will detect and remove such malicious programs from your device.

To put it in a nutshell, antivirus software is not necessary for iOS devices.

However, AVG offers two types of software for the iPhone and iPad. They are:

  • Step 1:AVG VPN
  • Step 2:AVG Mobile Security app

Installing the AVG Secure VPN on your iPhone:

  • Step 1:On the Home screen of your iPhone, tap the App Store icon.
  • Step 2:Search for AVG Secure VPN. Now, tap the GET option to download the app.
  • Step 3:Once the AVG Secure VPN app is downloaded, tap the Open option.
  • Step 4:If you need to activate an existing subscription, tap the Already purchased? option.
  • Step 5:If you haven’t purchased the app till now, tap the Close (X) icon.
  • Step 6:Choose the subscription plan that you want.
  • Step 7:From your iPhone’s Home screen, tap the AVG Secure VPN icon.

You have now installed the AVG Secure VPN application on your iPhone.
