Kaspersky Lab announces the recent release of Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS, a new free app to ensure users are safe while surfing the web on their iPhone and iPad devices.

The new Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS is now available from the Apple App Store.

Like any Internet user, iPhone and iPad owners can fall victim to cyber attacks which use social engineering techniques.

The most widespread example of this is phishing, which tricks users into providing their personal information through the use of fake websites or mass mailings that use the names and logos of well-known companies.

The user could be tricked into sharing their passwords to a social networking site, email address, Apple ID account, and more.

The risks are even bigger for anyone who uses a mobile device for banking and financial transactions.

Kaspersky Safe Browser_Screenshot_02According to a recent B2B International survey, 38% of mobile device owners use their gadgets to perform financial transactions, while one in three users encountered phishing attacks that posed as e-banking services.

Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS blocks links to phishing sites and other web-based resources that can be dangerous for users. The new application can also filter content according to selected user criteria.

This way, users can automatically block pornographic sites, material containing violence or profanity, gaming sites, social networks, chats, forums and more. There are 17 pre-defined content filtering categories in total.

Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS provides real-time protection from known and emerging threats thanks to data it receives from Kaspersky Security Network, which processes threat intelligence delivered by users of Kaspersky Lab security products from around the world.

The new application is compatible with Apple devices running iOS 5 and higher.

“Quite a few users of Apple products believe their devices are immune to cyber attacks. This false sense of security makes it easier for cybercriminals to execute their plans. The Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS app protects users from dangerous content whenever they go online,” said Alexey Chikov, Product Manager at Kaspersky Lab.

“We are glad to have developed this app specifically for the iOS platform. In the Philippines, there is a loyal and growing customer base for Apple mobile devices. The Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS app will definitely be very useful for iPad and iPhone users so they can surf the web safer than without an app like this,” said Jimmy Fong, Channel Sales Director for Kaspersky Lab South East Asia.

Kaspersky Lab has solutions which can protect all kinds of devices – from smartphones to servers.

The release of Kaspersky Safe Browser for iOS brings iOS-based devices into this secure ecosystem.
