Is it safe to bank?
Is it safe to use banking apps after you jailbreak? I use chase,american express, boa, and discover and was thinking about jail breaking with greenposi0n, but wanted to make sure it was safe, and that someone couldnt access my information. Thanks in advance!

How would someone be able to access your information?? You're jailrbeaking, not installing malware or anything. Don't use SSH turn it off, you'll be fine, you're worrying over nothing, chill out, calm down, continue as you mormally would....AKA dont' worry!MacBook 6,1 Late 09 Model

i have had the same paranoia. i would probably look into at least changing your root & mobile passwords on the device
personally, i simply try to keep any type of banking to a minimum on the device and wait until i get to my laptop/desktop

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think if OpenSSH is not installed, then there is no need to disable it because for the device to be accessed through SSH, OpenSSH needs to be on the phone.
I personally don't have OpenSSH installed, but I still change my root and mobile passwords anyway.

Chase Mobile (SM) for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
Bank of America - Mobile Banking for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
Wells Fargo Mobile for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad on the iTunes App Store
Those are the top 3 banks in North america. Strangly my bank does not offer one, but rather "mobile wallet"

Re: Is it safe to bank?
I don't know about you guys but my bank account has such a small amount it's not worth worrying about it
And I would have to agree with what was already said: jailbreaking in itself doesn't make your device any more or less vulnerable. Just make sure you know what you are installing from Cydia.If you have jailbreak woes, you can iMessage me at iDonev@me.com. I'll try to help (provided I have time to spare).
