An iPad is only as secure as you make it.If you’re doing something requiring any level of secrecy or protection, try these suggestions to keep your data from getting into the wrong hands.
You’re always better safe than sorry.
You can enable a quick 4-digit passcode as one means of preventing people from getting into your iPad. Go to Settings > General >Passcode Lock to set it up.
It you'd rather use more than four digits and include some letters in there as well, you can enable this too. Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock and disable Simple Passcode.
Applocker, for jailbroken iPads only, lets you password protect individual apps on your device.
It's available on Cydia for $0.99.
If you enable private browsing, Safari won't record a history of web pages you visit. Go to Settings > Safari to enable it.
