    Ok so I wanted to know if there is any way that some can install an app or any sort of program that can keep track of what you do on you Ipad, and view it on the iPhone 4? (Like go through you mail and personal information some sort of privacy breech app etc) I have this snoopy little brother that sticks his nose into every thing and is kind of a genius when it comes to Apple and gets a kick out of this kind of stuff, seeing as how he got the iPhone a really long time ago. I work 9 to 5 so my iPad is left exposed for 8 hours and he always seems to ease his way past the password. (And i don't want to be that guy that hides his things) I kind of got a clue that someone(mostly likely snot nose brother:D) was snooping around my iPad when my setting were all changed, I would notice things being bookmarked when I didn't bookmark them and other apps/tweaks showing up in my setting section.

    Is there any thing I can do to protect myself?

    Any input is much appreciated thanks.

    Na my boss isn't the nicest in the world, it's kind of a controlled environment and i just started like a week ago i don't want to seem like douche walking in with an iPad all like look at me and stuff lol, although I have debated keeping it in my car but that seems even worst then leaving it at home. And besides I want to one up my bro and kind of beat him at his own game if you know hat I mean. So i'm looking for a way I can get him red handed LOL :D

    Yeah I agree with you there, the car is no good. Hopefully your boss lightens up! Maybe someone will come along here who can help out...

    If you can jailbreak the iPad so easily, I know there must be some way you can monitor what is going on with your iPad, as well. Right? There are awesome genius out there are welcome to chime in any time.

    Why don't you set a password and fast timeout?

    I don't think there is any remote way of doing what you ask with the iPad. (Correct me someone if I am wrong). The best you can do is set a complicated long password with uppercase & lowercase letters mixed in with numbers and symbols when you leave for the day (of course don't forget it), and remember to change it frequently, I use mine for sensitive work related purposes so it has some kind of encryption, but the above is the best I can suggest.

    I have set a password already and it's not the simple 4 digit one either but that was long time ago and the changes occurred after the password was set. I change it every weekend as well.

    Either he has a spy cam in your room or are your passwords too simple ? Is he a chap who has a lot of patience or the worlds next super code breaker.

    An encryption huh? Well i'm going to have to look into that one, if you'd like to spew some more information on how I can encrypt my iPad it would be much appreciated. PM my if you don't want to make it into a production, it might just be the kind of thing I need.

    thanks

    Ofcourse he is, i'm not a afraid to admit that. He's a bright kid:) he's just using his smarts in a not so constructive way, but i'm sure that will change over time.

    Buy a small document safe and stow it in there. They aren't that expensive.

    ^^ That's actually a really good idea, I might just pick one up soon. Although I was kind of hoping that someone would tell me how to actually monitor what goes on with my iPad, and I could like view it when I get home or something like that.(not getting a spy cam forget about it) I know there is a way how to do it. Maybe I should have posted this in iPad Hacking section, NOOOBBB mistake!! lol But seriously there has to be a way.

    SweetPoison is a moderator, if there was a way I am sure she would already have directed you there. They are quite clever these moderators and of course have also acquired a lot of knowledge from the many posts they have seen. I do not know of any legitimate way. Maybe those who have jailbroken may know of some method, but again SP would have directed you there by now.

    I apologise...I have just seen SP is a super moderator....so what you are asking is unlikely to exist.
