Apple iPads are wonderful devices, but it may contain information that you do not want all others to see. As these devices evolve and become more and more feature-rich, it becomes more important for the device to be secure. The most important reason to secure your iPad is to stop someone from snooping around in case you lose or misplace the device.
There are many more reasons to lock and secure your iPad. For instance, if you have kids in your home, locking the device is essential to make sure that they do not use the device. In addition, if you have a mischievous colleague, you may not want to offer them a device that can give them easy access to your Facebook account. Fortunately, it is very easy to secure your iPad with a passcode and the steps are explained below.
These are the simple steps to set up a passcode on your iPad. You will also need to understand what will happen when you provide the wrong password. After you provide the wrong password a few times, the device access will be disabled temporarily. The disabling starts with lockout for a minute, then for five minutes and eventually the device will be disabled permanently if you keep on inputting the wrong passcode.
After setting up the passcode, you will need to turn on the passcode. To turn on the passcode, you just need to tap on the Turn Passcode On option provided at the top of the screen. The device will ask you type in the passcode twice and if both the passcodes match, the passcode feature will be turned on and the device will be secured with the same.
