Hi Members, Suppose a hacker has put some malware on your iPad. So, you backup your iPad, then go to Reset->Erase all Content and Settings. Now, if you choose to restore your iPad from the backup, will you be reinstalling the malware, too? Or does a backup only backup the ‘legit’ content on your iPad? If a backup backs up the malware, too, a manual restore *may* have the advantage of allowing you to choose exactly what’s going back on your device, which hopefully would *not* include malware? That said, I have recently Erased all Content and Settings twice and restored my iPad once from a backup and once manually. Neither of these options has stopped my iPad from unauthorized access. Every day, when I wake up, I turn on my iPad and find that while my iPad was turned off, the hacker has messed around last night with my Settings, it’s time-consuming to thoroughly check and see what’s been done this time. The only way to stop these problems (which often involve a trip to the Service Center- more time lost!) is to make my iPad inaccessible to the hacker. I would happily do anything legal to put him and his nonsense in the past- permanently! But, I don’t know how to do that, nor does anyone I’ve asked, including people at Apple. I’d even buy a new computer, but I’m concerned that the hacker could get into it, too, because I don’t know how he got into this one! Any ideas/advice for me? Thanks!
