    The problem is that I need the documents I have downloaded in my iPad (.doc, .pdf) to be protected from downloading them to a computer through software like iExplorer. Do you know of any app that encrypts documents that you store in the iPad? Because even with the iPad blocked if you conect it to a computer you can read ALL documents in it with the appropriate software. I've found some apps that secure those documents with a pasword to not be read in the iPad without the password, but those documents are anyway readable when you conect the device to the computer. I know about the remote wiping, but I would like to know if there is a way to protect the documents and do no net to wipe them off...

    Thank you very much.

    Thank you

    I've checked on the app information and I can't find about securing the files from being downloaded to a compture with software like iExplorer, do you know if this app blocks it? That's what concerns me.

    Thank you very much!
