    I have just registered with the forum, I'm concerned my iPad may have been hacked today when I opened an email. Could anyone tell me how I can find out whether this has happened and how do I know if I have security on my iPad. Thankyou

    Hi Margaret - welcome to the forum! :) I'm in the USA, so not sure about the ISP you are using nor which mail accounts you have setup in the native Mail app on the iPad - so, please provide some more specifics - the iPad mail app will simply 'mirror' the data from your email account servers, so the iPad is not really the issue relative to security - you might want to better explain what you mean by 'hacked' - hopefully w/ the additional information, a better response can be offered.
