When I posted my subject, I could not choose a Board that said home.  Yes, I went to "Show All." but the URL for home was dead.  Please advise.
In any case, my question is the subject.  Do I need Webroot protection for my i-Pad?

Hello BirdNDiz,
Welcome to the Community Forum,
At this time, there is not an antivirus option available for Apple iOS devices. Because of how Apple manages the apps available in their App Store, there is not a need for one currently. This may change in the future but at this time is is extremly hard/almost impossible to infect an iPad.
Not all Apple products are safe. With all the updates and security issues in the past year has shown Apple vulnerable to malware attacks & PUAs. You need to only download and install apps from the Apple Store.
I have WebrootSecureAnywhere Complete on my Mac computer and SecureWeb for my iPad with Password Manager and Backup & Sync.
You can obtain SecureWeb for free here
Webroot does offer two apps you can download from the App Store to backup your files and protect your internet browsing, called SecureWeb and Backup & Sync. You can find either of them by searching for "Webroot" in the App Store on your Apple iOS device. For more information on both of these products please use the information below.
Webroot SecureWeb
Webroot Backup & Sync (for SecureAnywhere Complete subscriptions only)
Hope this helps!
Kind Regards,
