Can you recommend a privacy app for iPhone or iPad?

Hi All,

Looking for a recommendation for a good app that I can use to store sensitive info i.e. SSN, credit card numbers, passwords etc. So if I loose my phone/pad there is some reasonable expectation that my whole life won’t be exposed.

    why can't they give us the option? i love apple products, but why do they ALWAYS "tell us what's best for us?" iit couldn't be that hard to write a little piece of software into that part of the os that give us the opportunity to choose what the switch does. android, blackberry, and windows phone 7 can do it.

    I've personally used Keeper and 1Password and they're both great - it just depends on what you need.

    Both of them allow you to set an unlock code so that no one can access the information without knowing that password.

    Keeper is free and you simply store all the information on your iPhone.

    1Password is a $6.99 app but it syncs with the desktop version. I feel that the negative reviews are a little unfair but people are more likely to complain when a 6.99 app isn't flawless. (Just make sure that you go into the settings and make sure that conceal passwords is on.)

      I quickly read the feedback on Apple's site and it seems that people like more its desktop version but no the iPhone app.
