    How Safe is Password Keeper

    Advertisement



    How "safe" or "secure" is the password keeper? Does it provide enough protections to store things like bank account information and credit card information?

    Is the data only stored on the BB or does the BES back it up? Is the data encrypted?

    Thanks,
    Doug

    All information on the BlackBerry is encrypted to at least 3DES, (basically 3 layers of encryption, - device, network and server). If you've set-up your BB correctly you'll have PIN number, a logon password with a maximum of 10 attempts - probably a lot less if you're on a BES and the password keeper application will also need a password.

    According to the BlackBerry knowledge base the password keeper is only decrypted when the correct keeper password is entered.

    BES BlackBerrys are virtually impossible to crack - tso secure in fact, that they've met all the criteria for the UK Government to approve them for use up to Restricted data classification.

    How 'uncrackable' is a non-BES Berry? How would someone hack into a Bby in any event? (im not asking for a how-to, just so i know how to not get hacked...)

    I would imagine that if somebody had your IMEI# and PIN it might theoretically possible. Certainly, one of the stack pro's just the other day deleted a nooby's IMEI from his 'stack profile for reasons of security
