    How Invincible is iPadOS?

    Aerofly, thanks for your info. So, what you’re saying is that with an iOS/iPadOS Apple machine, no need for any concern re: malware and all that similar nasty stuff, therefore no need for any protective software. I’ll take your word for it. Thanks again. :)

    How Invincible is iPadOS?

    I had believed that iPadOS (or iOS generally) in and of itself, provided all the protection the user needed. Now I have my doubts about the correctness of that. - Can someone please tell me how invincible iOS/iPadOS really are? iCloud too, for that matter. - A VPN is a must-have (JMHO), but if...

    Transferring Videos

    Hi! I got my first iPad 6 years ago (some wear and tear) and I have 8 or so videos on it. Now I have a new ipad, nice screen, and I want to transfer my videos (or at least be able to stream them) to my new iPad. They have different Apple ID’s, if that matters... I’m not in the West, Apple reps...

    Phone # Recovery Glitch...

    Jupiter7, OK, maybe I was misinformed- quote you, “come out of Settings on the device, but go to Safari.” Since Safari is part of the Settings menu, how can you “come out of Settings and tap on Safari?” My phone number is intact in the iCloud and AppleID pages. It’s going through Settings...

    Phone # Recovery Glitch...

    twerppoet & Jupiter7, thank you for your replies! :) twerppoet, I knew most of what you said, but certainly not all of it, so, I learn from you. Thanks! Jupiter7, thanks! If you (or someone) has a minute, could you please tell me how to “come out of Settings on the device, but go to Safari.”...

    Phone # Recovery Glitch...

    Jupiter7, thank you for the advice. That said, I’m a bit confused- 1. “Apple iCloud account?” Are you talking about the passcode used to log in? I’ve gone Settings->[Name]->Apple ID (which I have the option to sign out of)->iCloud->tap into iCloud, where there is no “sign out” function... So it...

    Phone # Recovery Glitch...

    Hi All!, I just want to add my phone number to my iPad. My path: Settings->[name]->Apple ID->Name, phone numbers, email. Tap that, on the right side there’s a ‘Contactable at’ section where your other emails & phone numbers can be stored in case there’s an issue (like you’re locked...

    Just Spiffballing here...

    Yes, I read about the ‘good guys’ working for corporations, looking for vulnerabilities. The best of them are likely ex-hackers. And now there’s courses on ethical hacking?? Sure it must be a good way to learn about security. Good? Sure. Fun? Up to you :)

    Just Spiffballing here...

    Well, twerppoet, I agree with *all* you say excepting what is quoted above... My reason being that the ‘Net has more scams, etc., which makes it more of a concern/security issue than it was 20-25 years ago. Check the stats yourself, see how many computers, tech, etc., have been compromised...

    Thanks, Jupiter7. “Ethical hacking...” :) twerppoet, thank you for the link!! :) Not surprised Wiki has it... I guess cyber security is going to be a necessity in future, not ‘Net, like before

    Just Spiffballing here...

    Just wondering, no more... Question: How can a bad person gain unauthorized access to another computer without having *physical access* to that other computer and knowing the login details? I believe it’s done; haven’t a clue how. And no, I’m not up to any monkey business. If I was, I doubt...

    iPad Air 3- No Forum?

    OK, thanks, scifan57. Forum owners haven’t added any new forums in a while? I’ll take your word for it... If the forum owners aren’t keeping up to speed with Apple’s new innovations... a disappointment. It’s very strange to me- iPad Forums has a forum for iPad Hacking (I never looked at it...

    iPad Air 3- No Forum?

    I scrolled through the menu of iPad forums here several times... I found a Forum for iPad Air, iPad Air 2 Forum, but *no* iPad Air 3 Forum! I don’t know how this can be- I checked and the iPad Air 3 was ‘announced’ on March 18, 2019- 18-odd months ago... I *assume* that’s enough time to add a...

    Apple Mail?

    A post on the home page, dated April 23/2020, titled “Mail App Vulnerability on iPhone and iPad,” is still there now. - I have looked but have seen nothing about this issue being resolved despite 5 months having passed since April. - If it had been resolved, the post about it on the home page...

    Recommendation, Anyone?

    I’m very embarrassed to post this. But I’ve been embarrassed before, so... It’s about email. On my mind is this: Currently, there are several email services that have been around 20-odd years. Long time! My concern is that ‘ancient’ email services like those are more vulnerable to hacking...

    Firmware Update?

    Hi, I’ve come across the phrase ‘firmware update’ quite often lately. Made me wonder why. When an iOS software update is released, isn’t a ‘firmware update’ included? In that case, what Apple user needs to be concerned about ‘firmware updates?’ Thanks

    ProtonMail- Got It?

    New Connection-

    Hi, as some of you may know, I’ve been hacked- for about the last 10 months... I’ve been working on this iPad problem 5~7 hours *daily,* I can’t beat it, seems nobody can. I’ve decided set up my own personal connection between my iPad and the ‘Net. I’m retired, traveling around the tropics...

    What to Do, Experts?

    I don’t stay in my own place, so I’d have to ask the manager... But, I’ve been moving around, different towns, even neighboring countries, to the best of my knowledge, this made no difference in the level to which I was being hacked. What do you think about that?

    iPad won’t Stream...

    I did that- Erase all Content and Settings- and the glitch was gone when I restored.

    iPad won’t Stream...

    Thanks, Dave! To make a long story short: There’s a news app I enjoy. It has a section where you can watch it ‘Live,’ meaning you can watch it on your iPad and it’s like watching it Live on TV. I was in Settings, I made a switch, and now it won’t play like it’s TV anymore. If I could just set...

    iPad won’t Stream...

    It’s my fault... Upon restoring my machine, there was a setting, choices WiFi or Cellular. It was set for cellular, but since my machine is WiFi, I switched the setting to WiFi. I had used that channel for streaming news, but now it won’t stream at all. I get a message ‘No WiFi Signal’ (not...

    Hi Again, To the point (as you may know) I’ve been hacked, *probably started 7 months ago. I have done *everything* in my ability, I’ve asked your people’s kind advice, been to the Apple store so many times, and *everything else I could think of, including both Erasing all Content...

    Hacked

    mountain-ash, thank you very much. I find that- hackers don’t just mess with your machine... They *really* mess your mind, too. I’ll never look at people the same way. Make me feel like I don’t want to know people at all.

    iCloud Content disappeared!

    Hi All, I’ll do my best to make this as sequential as I can. Yesterday, Apple Support advised me to change my Apple ID. I went to appleid.apple.com to do that, but that method wasn’t working correctly, so I had to go to the Apple Store today for help. The Apple Rep had me Sign Out of...

    Problem Changing Apple ID... Honestly!

    J.A., I sure wish it worked like that for me, but it was different. First, in Appleid.apple.com, after entering my new Apple ID email address, I get a message that the Verification Code has been emailed to that new email address. *And* six little boxes to enter the 6 digit code appeared in...

    Problem Changing Apple ID... Honestly!

    Hi Everyone, On Apple’s advice, I tried to change my Apple ID, but couldn’t. Here’s what happens: I go to appleid.apple.com and click on Change Apple ID. I enter the new (3rd party) email address I want to use. I get a message saying that a Verification Code has been sent to...

    iPad Setup & Apple ID

    Hello! From the iPadOS User Guide 13.5, page 10, under the section titled Prepare for Setup, it tells you what to have available, one is, “Your Apple ID and Password; if you don’t have an Apple ID, you can create one during setup.” Can anybody please tell me how that works? What if...

    Restoring from Backup when Hacked...

    BikeFladAZ, I will do just that! I won’t know if the hacking stops or not for a while. I very much wish an Apple technician would do a ‘checkup’ on my iPad and give it a ‘clean bill of health’, or else find any other problems that may remain... But, where I am, I haven’t found anyone who’ll do...

    Restoring from Backup when Hacked...

    BikeFlag, I’ve downloaded iVerify from the App Store. From what I read, it looks like an excellent diagnostic tool. If it can do all it claims, it will be *fantastic!* Now, time to put it to the test! Frankly, I’m excited about this, hoping for a positive outcome! :)

    Password Managers- Good or Not?

    LannyC, thanks for your reply! Please don’t take this the wrong way; I’m not being confrontational (I never will be, that’s not what this forum’s about), but I noticed you mentioned ‘securely’ a couple of times. Following the news tells me that *nothing* on the ‘Net is secure, so that would...

    Password Managers- Good or Not?

    Poisonivy, seems we’re on the same ‘page,’ so to speak. It’s entirely possible to keep track of your passwords on paper, in a manner that nobody but you would understand. Just don’t tell anyone about it; after all, it’s nobody’s business but yours, and keep your notebook inaccessible to...
