Scanning for Security Threats on iOS

This Article Applies to:

  • Small Office Protection


IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Mobile Protection has been removed from all Small Business Solutions subscriptions (Essential/Premium/Ultimate Business Security) due to low adoption. The mobile devices with the subscriptions activated are reverted to the free version. Small Office Protection subscriptions are not affected at this time.


The Scan option enables you to scan all applications installed on your device and informs you about security risks caused by changes in default iOS settings. The virus definitions used by the scan are updated automatically.

  1. Tap the Avast Security & Privacy icon on your device to open the app
  2. Tap Scan on the main screen

Once the scan finishes, the app either displays that everything is fine or lists the found issues and offers possibilities to resolve them. You can tap Resolve or Enable if these actions are available.
