    Virus on iPhone

    So I got a screen that popped up saying I had a virus. Could this be just more marketing from the apps to get people to buy an anti virus for the iPhone? Or is it possible the iPhone can get a virus even with all the security protections from Apple? Should I have this checked out? I do do mobile banking once in a while.

    Nothing to worry about, you probably just clicked a link that led you to a website trying to get you to download something. Just leave the page.

    Remember that a jailbroken iPhone may disable some of the built-in protection.
