Hi all.. I never bother about using Facebook nor my email on custom ROM... But my friend asked whether he can use banking transactions on Custom ROMs... Even i had the same thought.. But i thinking if i use the dolphin browser or Opera mini the data which i sent will be encrypted.. And is thr any chance of ROM's seeing this encrypted data??

I agree with you, but CyanogenMod is safer than stock because it doesn't have CarrierIQ.
That thing is scary! It logs your keystrokes and all sorts of other personal data.

Try this app if you are worried:

It isn't Samsung -it is the mobile networks putting it on the firmware.

Why should Banking App be unsafe? Problem is App not Rom, i think. And mostly the user is the most unsafe thing ;)
