    What antivirus protection would you recommend for our family?



    We have three smartphones, an iPad and one laptop as well and need coverage for all of these.



    My main concerns are malware and phishing attempts.

    The big challenge is getting something with multi OS support.

    Have a look at zonealarm.com

    What OS is the laptop?

    Assuming you(the family) only install apps from the app store, you don't need anti-malware on them.

    For phishing, only thing that really works is education.

    Smartphones, iPhones or Android?
