As it is said that by some very well-known that “Prevention is better than cure” So why let’s not apply this quote here and protect our I-phones before letting it in the rid of that malware.
Before moving on the ways to protect let’s see what actually malware is. By the name it seems that it might be a virus but to the point of view it’s not really that it’s something different. The first thing to know is it is different from other types of malicious software, such as virus. Malware doesn’t attempt to get into your machine without your knowledge, it is malicious software designed as legitimate software.
For understanding more clearly, let’s take a closer view of it through the example.
