8 Ways To Keep Your iPad Safe And Secure

With the recent iPad security breach, you may be concerned about the security of your iPad. With a little due diligence on your part, you can make sure that you keep your iPad secure and safe.

Here are eight ways you can keep your iPad safe and secure.

ØKeep your iPad in your possession to control data access. These means do not share your iPad with your roommate or others that you can’t keep an eye on.

ØEnable automatic data erasing. You can set it up to erase all of the stored user data on the iPad device after 10 failed passcode attempts.

ØUse a passcode when you’re in public. While only offering limited protection, the passcode is designed to keep unauthorized users from accessing your data and apps.

ØRestrict certain functions. You can use a passcode to restrict access to certain apps and functions.

ØUse a VPN to encrypt all of your wireless traffic.

ØSign up for Apple’s MobileMe service. While pricey at $99 a year, it does a backup and secures your data on the iPad.

ØDon’t jailbreak your iPad. Other than voiding your warranty, jailbreaking your iPad can result in unpredictable security results since it changes some of the controls of the iPad.

ØInstall all software updates to keep the system vulnerabilities low.
