    When purchasing the eris I had it in mind to possibly trade stocks from scottrade mobile, or pay my cell phone bill via it.

    How secure is this device to put important passwords into it?

    The browser supports SSL, although I am not sure what level of encryption is supported.

    In terms of the device itself... It has a screen lock you can choose to use. If the phone gets locked out, you have the option to either do a factory reset or, (I believe), contact Verizon to have it reset.

    There are also apps that allow you To wipe it remotely if security is your main concern if lost

    Just as safe as a laptop. Leave it lying around and someone may get in your shit. Keep it secure and with you or in a safe place and you're fine. Change your passwords at least once a month, and that's just general security advice.
