    An ex iPhone owner here, and I have a quick question, do I need an antivirus app on my phone? And what are the chances of getting a virus ?


    Thanks in advance.

    You really don't NEED an anti-virus app. There are free ones out there that work well but the chances of getting a virus (especially if you are not rooted and side loading apps) is very small.
    This is a great thread about the details.
