    Would you check your bank account?

    On your iPad? I almost did today but I was on 3G not Wifi. At home I have wifi and that is a secure network? 3G is not, right?

    In almost a year, I have never checked my bank accounts on my iPad.

    I would be more weary on wifi than 3G. Wifi is really easy to hack and catch packets however 3G isn't.
    I do do a lot of paypal stuff over wifi. I don't have 3G though.

    I have Msecure and I won't put my bank passwords in there. Not sure I'd be comfy checking my accounts with Ipad either.

    As long as you're on a secured webpage you're fine. I run the Bank of America app all the time and it clearly states if you don't see the little lock in the lower left corner do not enter any info. Just make sure the webpages you're on are secured and you're fine. They can sniff all the packets they want and wont get a thing if the webpage is encrypted.

    You're home network is secured IF you're running some type of encryption. WAP is good WAP2 is better. Stay away from WEP.

    I have Bank of America and USAA. I have to say both apps are very good. I pay bills, transfers, everything with the apps.

    Your bank more than likely has an app for it which I'm positive would be a secure connection.
