anyone check bank or credit card statements on the iPhone is it safe?
I do my online banking with my iPhone all the time. I am with Bank of America. They have a mobile specific version of their site so it is nice and easy. You can make sure the site is safe by looking at the first part of the URL. If it starts with "https://" the "s" is secure. If it has the "s" in it, you can trust the site is safe.

Hope that helps!

yep! I am actually an Implementation Coordinator and Technical Specialist for a major bank and our site is completely safe.

I use my iPhone all the time for my banking and even supporting out site.

i've done it on mine, and i will likely have to next week when i'll be traveling right when many of the bills show up. my bank was super slow to work right with safari on the mac, and they still don't quite format properly for the iPhone, but you can do it. i think their inability to write a proper page that displays regardless of browser, like html is supposed to, is a problem. that said, i wouldn't hesistate to use the iPhone for such things. my rant is only based on lazy site creators.

I think the easy answer here would be that the security in this case and most or all for safari is not dependent on the iPhone but rather on the site you are visiting. Like a previous post said with the "s" after the http that means it has been secured by SSL and most likley a company like verisign or CEO trust.

The only additional security concern with any phone using a web browser for banking is the personal information you store on it.

Only because it's more probably that you will lose a phone or a laptop you travel with all the time than say, your desktop to someone interested in your info.
