    Question iPad Security


    I read a comment on another site. What about user accounts. If I were to leave my iPad unattended someone like my wife or son could pick up my iPad and read my private emails.

    I hope Apple adds user accounts or some sort of password protection. Any ideas?

    The iphone already has pass code perfection so I dont see why the iPad would not.

    But I also do not think it is good to keep secrets from your wife.

    You can always add a password to the lock screen if that is a concern. I know I'm in the habit of locking my iPods screen basically any time I set it down. It won't stop the kids from getting at the mail client if you hand over so they can play games or watch a movie... which gets back to my wish of better parental App control.

    Even without multi-users it would be nice to lock out single apps and allow for a password override to launch.
    Add 202 to my user number and call me an Airplane.
