    Hi All,

    I recently bought a Mac Pro and am looking for ways to keep my keychain in sync between the MP and my MacBook Pro. I have a MobileMe subscription and know the option exists to sync keychains. I already use the service to sync address book, ical, mail and bookmarks, but I am cautious about using it for keychains. I know keychains themselves are encrypted, but I am wondering is the sync transaction between my machines and Apple encrypted.. and is all of my data encrypted on Apples end? Does anyone here use the keychain sync and can provide some peace of mind on the issue?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm afraid I can't provide any authoritative peace of mind. All I can say is that I keep four macs in sync using MobileMe and no-one has hacked into my computers / email / online banking ... yet :eek:
