Virus protectors for phones are gimmicky at best in my opinion.

Your Virus Protection is the iTunes App store. Unless you jailbreak your iPhone, apps from the App Store are protected from virii.

An app isn't the only method of getting a virus.

I wouldn't worry about viruses. Only a small portion of them get them and they are experienced users!

I'm not saying that iPhone is impervious to catching a virus, but I can honestly say I've never encountered a virus since using the 3Gs right on up to the iPhone 6s. (iPhone 3Gs and 4s were both jailbroken devices).
