    I thought I got an email from a friend with a web link but when i checked she said she hadn't sent it.
    In the email when I had clicked on the link, it opened to a blank page. I'm worried that this process has downloaded some malware onto my iPhone.
    Is there anything I can do to check and is there something I can install on my iPhone 5s to protect it?
    I'm especially worried about keystroke copying.

    Unless your phone is jailbroken, it's extremely unlikely any malware could have been installed.

    Most likely, the link tried to download a Windows .exe file. That would result in a blank page in Safari.

    If youre on iOS, you did not download anything. IF you downloaded a config file for anything like that, then it would have opened settings and asked for a passcode to install. If that did not happen then you are absolutely safe.
