    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) First, let's forget about your BF's issue w/ his desktop - another story. Second, please provide information on your device: 1) iPad Model; 2) iOS installed; 3) Why do you feel there is a 'key logger'?

    Finally, is your iPad 'jailbroken'? - which is likely the only way a key logger could possibly be installed; if not, then you do not have a key logger - now if 'something' new has come out for a stock iDevice, then I'll stand to be corrected - ;) Dave

    I think it's the iPad air model is A1474 I have NO clue what an iOS is lol and I think there might be one because he's already got one on the desktop. Not to mention he keeps dropping hints like he knows, but I don't do nething wrong. Idk. I just wanna know how far he's taking this crap bc I'm gettin real close to the edge...

    Hello again Ashley..... - you have a Wi-Fi only Air model (I don't know the capacity in GB?) - iOS is the operating system that is running your iPad (like Windows on a PC) - go to Settings -> General -> About - half way down the right listing, you will find your iPad's capacity (along w/ available space) and the iOS version, current one is 8.1.3 - let us know that information.

    You still have not provided any comments on how your BF is possibly 'controlling' your iPad - some detail will help; also, let us know if you have a 'passcode' and if he knows it, i.e. can he use your iPad?

    Yes, Cydia is correct - go to 'Spotlight' and type in 'Cydia', if no listing of an app is seen, then your iPad is not jailbroken - Dave :)

    Also, it's not my iPad, it's his. He goes to work all day and I don't have a phone so I use this to communicate with the outside world and listen to rhapsody lol

    In that case, if you're worried about a key logger, your only choice would be to stop using his iPad.

    Googling key logger (there are lots of entries) seems to indicate only jail broken IOS devices can be affected

    Gtatler is correct, a keylogger program can't be installed on a stock iPad.

    If your using someone else's iPad, the only way they won't know what you've been doing on the device is if you clear out the browser history, sign out of anything you signed into, delete messages, etc. The iPad is designed, essentially, as a one person device, so it "remembers" almost everything put into it. So, you have to manually remove things.
