    Default A tool for opening suspicious email
    I have reading a lot that the iPhone can't get infected with a virus or malware it is believed that our devices are pretty much risk free.
    My device is jail broken if that makes a difference.
    I am looking for confirmation that it would be safe to use our I devices to open those suspicious emails follow the links view attachments what ever we feel like risk free.
    Or would you recommend an anti virus/ malware app to scan these emails first, AppStore or Cydia
    Thanks for any advice your knowledge on this topic is appreciated.

    The iDevice has very few exploits in that manner (involving malware, etc.) so you should be safe.

    I was reading the description of an app called mobishield pro in the Modmyi repo.
    Seems it may have some nice features other than antivirus/malware protection even if the protection is not needed yet it has find your phone, battery checker and others. Would anyone be willing to share there knowledge of this app good or bad

    I tried it before, not a bad app in my opinion. Protecti is a very neat app too if you care to check that out.

    The best thing to do is not open suspicious emails at all. If you are weary of an email then don't click the attachment and wait till you can check it on your computer so it can do a scan.

    As for links in iOS emails I just hold down on the link and see what the web address is.

    It's safe. I actually use my iPhone for that purpose, to open suspicious emails and view them via iFile when I download them from my iPod. The reason iPhones are safe is because most malicious viruses are designed for different platforms such as Microsofts windows os
