Is there any way I can access sensitive data - such as passwords - on my iPad, without having it out there for anyone to hack into? I wanted to keep on a USB Flash Drive to access when needed, but I've determined that the iPad doesn't work with a flash drive - even though I have an adapter.

1password is outstanding and probably I would imagine the most secure password and information keeper out there.

But remember your iPad pascode is also very very good. So with that and then password you are very secure, I think. And to top it all your information is on iPad, which I stand to be corrected but I think has the lowest recorded viruses of any tablet or personal computer.

If my Dropbox account was ever hacked, the hacker would have a heck of a time trying to associate the list with anything. It's not a list stating the password, followed by the site it's used on. More of a personal shorthand with word associations.
That's how mine are listed, but mine are stored in an encrypted Word document, in a 256-bit encrypted disk image, on my 128-bit encrypted local drive. If just having them in Dropbox works for you, that's fine. I was just surprised.
