Hey All,

How safe is it to sync your Keychain with MobileMe? It would be nice to have some login credentials on the iphone, but the thought of having all of my logins (internet banking etc) stored in an online cloud fills me with dread.

Cheers

Although I have no technical knowledge of how it works, on the basis of how many other people are going to do it too I'm guessing it's pretty secure.

Well I don't use it any more. dot Mac screwed up my key chains on several occasions so it isnt getting the chance again!

Hmm I must say that I still don't know how comfy I could sleep at night knowing that much of my personal data is sitting in the cloud.

I think I will not sync my Keychain!
