Common Questions

My device is not listed above, what can I do?
If your device is not listed, don't worry. VirtualShield will be coming to more devices very soon, including Linux, Android TV, Amazon tablets and more. In the meanwhile, you can install our Legacy app or one of our Chrome/Firefox/Opera extensions instead.
My device is too old to run the app, what can I do?
If your device is incompatible, it is likely you can run our Legacy app or one of our Chrome/Firefox/Opera extensions instead. However, we recommend upgrading your system to be fully protected against the latest threats.
I own an iPhone 7, does that mean I can't run the app?
No, the Apple iOS version is different from the iPhone/iPad version. As long as you're using iOS 13.0 or later, then our app will be fully compatible. See our support article for more info on how to check your iOS version.
