> The real question is, who do you want your data to be secured from? Your typical snot-nosed TSA agent certainly isn’t going to have a device capable of scraping data off of your phone, however both hackers and government might. If you jailbreak your device, it’s possible that a much larger pool of people will as well.
I never assumed iOS was *that* secure, but not storing Keychain passwords in encrypted files is worrying to me. (*Note*: I have no clue why I had that in there as it is clearly not consistent with this article, sorry. -Ben) I think the above just about sums up all computer security though. The more you hack, the larger the potential to open up *more* security holes. However, the pool of people that can exploit and get a hold of your data, is small, but growing. They have to have good reason to want *your* data.
