    is it safe?

    Advertisement



    Hi all. I'm wondering if the BB internet connection is as safe as a regular ISP's. The reason I ask is because I've read somewhere that everything goes through rim's servers somewhere in Canada, and I bet it also passes through my wireless provider along the way. Not that I'd give my social security no. or anything like that, but can someone see, say, my email content in transit or know which pages I visit?

    again, it mostly depends on the site you are on. If it is a secure site, then the risk is about the same as if you were on your computer at home.

    RIM doesn't have the ability to read anything that goes through their BlackBerry Infrastructure, so things are safe on that end, however, as Dolphin said, the internet is never safe. A site can log anything that you do no matter if you're on a BlackBerry or not...
