    How private is the ipad?

    Peace

    if not what apps would you recommend if someone, employee, military, company, law enforcement wanted to

    browse the net privately, proxy, undetected while traveling.

    (helps to see sites blocked in certain countries)
    2 store login credentials data, log in credentials. SAFELY

    -can hackers actually see that we do on our ipads?. (possible?)

    There are a few companies that provide a service to monitor one's phone or built in camera UNDETECTED and of course if abused then punishable by law, but they exist for a few hundred bucks.

    And what is all the news about AT&T, White house staff members and mayors so on worried about all their data been exposed, and of course the usual, desktop monitoring your browser or even iPad screen itself while you use it.

    So is this thing safe and how?
    thanks

    As for private surfing and keeping you safe from prying eyes at a hotspot or whatever...no app needed...Many VPN services are available. Just use:
    Settings > General > Network > VPN > Add VPN Configuration

    Log-in credentials/passwords...some very solid and safe apps:

    LastPass
    1Password
    Roboform

    Also, remember you're not limited to just the 4 digit password for the iPad itself - you can go "advanced" and create a strong password.

    Much more, but this is a good start.

    Thanks for the tip, with so many apps out there i had no idea where to start,

    And it seems that all free mobile services on the net never guaranty privacy, especially Google and Facebook., do you trust any free VPN services?
