    Hey! I was wondering if there was any way to password protect entries from the auto-installed Notes app that came with my iPad.

    I'm afraid not. There are some third party apps that have that have this capability but not the native Notes app.

    One possible workaround that would enable you to use the iPad's native Notes app is to subscribe to Apple's MobileMe service and use their iDisk cloud storage. That is supported by the iPad's native Notes app, but the advantage is that access is password protected. Downside is that you have to pay for use of MobileMe....

    I suggest just having a password for the whole unit. I personnaly think its safer, yea its a pain in the @$$ to enter in everytime but atleast I know when im not around no one can just go into my ipad and go through my files.

    1Password has secure notes - plus it keeps all your passwords. The other nice thing is if you have it on your computer you can sync securly over wifi - so for passwords you can enter it all on the computer, and have it show up on your iOS device.

    It is a bit pricey. I got one password for Mac in a software bundle but after using it I would buy it standalone. I bought the iOS app to complement my computer install.
