Can a troublemaker steal my control while in flight
If I were to buy one and someone nearby also had an iPad, could they hack it and control it with out my permision, while I was flying it my self, or is there a password u need to connect control to this device

It will only connect to one device at a time. So someone can't "hijack" it.

You can optionally 'pair' the drone with your phone. By default it is promiscuous, which is convenient, but you can meet your needs by pairing.

if you mean by stealing control by they could take complete control and fly it
not according to one comment saying there is a reset button on the aircraft.
if you mean by stealing control by a denial of service attack then in theory yes they would need to generate the frequency in the range of 2.4 ghz and maybe even at 5 ghz and cause it to lose signal
comments does not seem to allow links so you have to look up the following at wikipedia manually
witch would then knock out all wifi, cell phones and cordless phone devices that operate in the 2.4 to 5 ghz range and then you may have the fcc coming after you
