    Also, how effective is enabling a passcode in preventing someone to use your ipod touch? I'll be going to college soon, so this information is very important to me.

    The best way to protect it from theft is to bolt it directly to your skeletal system.

    Seriously, just take care of it. Treat it like you would your wallet... don't leave it lying around.

    As far as the passcode, no one can use the touch without it. It's that simple.

    If you are worried about it getting stolen, you could always put the passcode to erase after 10 failed attempts. That way your password couldn't be guessed.

    They've actually recently come out with this amazing new security system for the iPod Touch (and other portable media devices and phones) - I'm seriously considering investing in one for myself. Check it out!

    Don't show it off to random people and don't use the Apple earbuds.

    If someone really wants it, they will get it, wipe the memory, and use it like it was always theirs. Best way of protection, treat it as your wallet/money/car keys. Engraving your iPods and such is recommended by mine and many universities.

    Have a big, heavy chain welded to the back of it and padlock it to your waist.

    Buy a safe. Bolt the safe to the floor, using bolts that can only be unscrewed from the inside of the safe when open. Put your Touch in the Safe. Close and Lock the Safe. Never open the Safe again. Forget the combination or lose the key(s).

    Hello loneapple24

    It is not possible to protect 100% from theft but you can do some changes which is mentioned in below.

    You can go to the Setting section of your Pageonce account on the web, located in the upper right hand corner of your AtOnce page. Under the section for Mobile Access, select the option to block any mobile access to your account. This will stop your lost or stolen device from accessing your Pageonce information.
    Even you can go under the Settings section of your application, you can register your device by serial number so that your device and your device alone can access your Pageonce data.

    Hope it will help to you.
