    Hi all. My iPad gets used most of the time by me, however sometimes it's shared within the home. I have numbers installed and I have some spreadsheets that I don't want anyone other than me to see. Is there a simple way of protecting such files e.g password to open etc. any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Jono

    Try a useful little app called 'My Secret Folder'. There is a lite version you can try - I think it will do exactly what you need. You access it via a passcode ( if anyone else tries to access it, the camera takes a photo of them silently!) and once in, you can save files, photos, even browse the Internet before exiting the app and leaving no trace to other users. Only irritation is that the folder is called My Secret Folder! What a temptation, eh? :)
    Let me know if this helped...

    You could also try "My Apps" - its a secure folder that requires your combination/password to enter and you can store many different types of docs including spreadsheets.

    Available in apps store.

    Thanks for this. I have tried this very tempting folder. It is good but it doesn't seem to allow you to had the files you create with Numbers. Mmmmmm. Will keep pondering and see what comes up. Once I find a solution, I'll post up here to confirm. Thanks again
