    Hi people. I am considering jailbreaking my iphone. The only issue I have is that I am concerned about the possibility of third party applications stealing my personal information and my email account info. Please help and explain to me if it is possible. If so and I do decide to jailbreak how can I protect my information. If itís not possible to have my info stolen please explain how it is not possible. Thanks

    Anyone out there????????????????????????

    although it is possible, it's unlikely (I never heard any complaints).

    app store apps run with limited access (little more than the addressbook).

    jailbreaked apps run with FULL access to anything on the iPhone.

    bottom line, if you jailbreak, only use reputable sources from reputable developers.

    first off stay away from anything cracked. second any source that is defaulted in cydia is a trusted source. any one you add has teh possiblility of being an untrusted source. what apps are you thinking of installing? i have never even HEARD of people having hacking issues from applications
