Hi dougsus
Welcome to the Community Forums.
If you can reboot your phone then please do so, as the site you are reporting is deemed to be/has been reported to contain malicious content, so you have done the right thing by not clicking 'OK'.
In terms of getting Webroot for your iPhone 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.
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):
SecureWeb will provide browser & surfing protection so that is the app to go for.
Hope that helps?
