Mobile Security App Android vs iPad

I recently installed Norton Mobile Security on my Android cell phone and my ipad.  I'm seeing  what appears to be a less robust application on the ipad.  Am I correct? The ipad only has Anti-Theft and Backup features.  It doesn't have the Anit-malware, privacy, Wi-Fi security and web protection that the Android app has.  Can anyone explain this please?

Re: Mobile Security App Android vs iPad

You are correct. There are no malware protection features on the IOS version of Norton Mobile. They are not necessary as the mobile Apple OS is protected by design. IOS apps are sandboxed so they cannot affect the OS.

See this information from TomsGuide.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.
