Review Date 10/23/2019

Ah, the iPad. The tablet that changed how we watch TV in bed, how children eat dinner at restaurants, and how our parents take pictures. From the little iPad Mini to the 12.9 inch iPad Pro, there is likely no easier to use computer device known to the human race.

What could happen if something went wrong

The iPad does meet our Minimum Security Standards and Apple does a good job with privacy and security. However, say you set your iPad up with a passcode rather than fingerprint TouchID. Your kid could sneak and learn the passcode to your iPad, then login while you're not looking and watch enough YouTube videos to turn their brain to mush.
