    I am a new iOS 7 user just bought the iPad air. Do you use this feature or not? Safe, full of bugs etc? Sound off

    I'm kind of skeptical using it but hell I do already use photostream on iCloud so they already have pictures of me.

    Personally wouldn't store passwords in the cloud.

    No issues, works great. All the secure websites like my bank have another layer of security that isn't a password.

    I use it but is there a way I can see my passcodes?

    Yes. From launchpad, select the Other folder and in there you should find the key manager from where you can view your pass codes.

    In the Safari settings on your iOS device.

    On my iPad it says wrong passcode and I can't see it, but on my iPhone I don't have a problem with it. How can I fix this?

    They probably already have your credit card information stored if you make purchases on the iTunes / App Store.

    It's encrypted with 256 bit AES encryption, which would take hundreds of years to decrypt.

    My iPad doesn't support keychain as it's still running iOS5 so I can't really help you with that. Sounds like a bug since it seems to be working on your phone. The only thing I can think of is the obvious, restarting your device or even resetting your password, maybe? Sorry I can't be of more help to you.

    I am afraid one day former Apple employee would hack iCloud keychain and steal billion of user's personal credit cards, etc. Everything is possible. :apple:

    Like someone else said, Apple has your cc with iTunes now. It's amazing how many people will trust an app from the App Store and not Apple.

    How about companies like eBay, PayPal, Amazon, and your bank? Who says an ex-employee at a bank won't steal your money and you cc info?

    Why does one cloud service give you more piece of mind over another cloud service?

    And why do you trust the people who made it? Who says they didn't put something in it to steal your info?

    read up about Agilebits and 1Password ... it is hands down the best App I have ever bought.

    There is nothing sketchy about this awesome Canadian company ... they are rock solid :apple:

    How is information in 1Password synced among other devices?
