    Hello Guys! I'm coming back again with an stupid question.

    I was Wondering if this emulator the GBA4iOS can compromise the security of my iPad.
    You have to install a certificate from their site
    So I'm not sure what permissions I'm giving when installing the certificate and what could happen if I install it.

    Is there anyway they can steal info?
    Is there anyway they can steal photos?
    Is it dangerous?

    What do you think?

    I personally don't trust any app like that that isn't open source. You really don't know what they are doing.

    Yeah That's what I was thinking, is not open source.

    I'm really taking care of my iPad, don't want them to install anything that can steal or acces any of my information.

    Thanks for your answers guys

    I have used it and inspected it
    They can't steal it just like that

    That's one thing I'm worried, but probably another thing they Can do by installing their profile?

    Does anyone have the permissions that we can give an app by installing a profile?

    where the potential goes to zero
    Better not take chances. Just get another iPad (or cheaper Android device) to be your dirty jailbroken GBA tablet. Give it as much bogus but plausible personal information as it demands to make it work and then download dubious emulators to your heart's content.
