    Some things that bother me

    1. No firewall or browser extensions allowed.
    2. I do not know any way to block Go ogle analytics and similar things on a web page or an app.
    3. Even if I allow only white listed sites, say Yahoo.com, it automatically allows access to all trackers on it.

    Are there any kind of security products for iPad? More so as iPad pro is being positioned as a laptop replacement.

    1. Every other router has a firewall today. No browser extensions means higher security for 9/10 people. Most people don't use NoScript.
    2. Brave Browser.
    3. Brave Browser.

    Thanks Beyonder. A few more questions:

    1. What about tethered mobile hotspots?
    2. What encryption does iPhone use for mobile personal hotspot with wifi sharing?

    1. If you want to control outbound connection per-apps, I think there's no option unless you jailbreak. As to extension, at least you can use various content blocker and iCab browser allow some extension, tho it's long time after I stopped using it.
    2. & 3. You can use Adguard Pro.
    There's Avira & TrendMicro apps, but I don't feel need for them unless jailbreaked.
    1. IDK what do you mean.
    2. WPA2
