    Hi,

    My iPhone was stolen this morning. I set the passcode on it, and I also enabled the option 'Erase data after ten failed passcode attempts'.

    The question I wanted to ask is how secure is this? Can this feature be overcome in any way? Can whoever took it get to the data I had stored on my phone?

    Any answer will be much appreciated.

    Its safe, unless they get lucky, was your passcode guessable?

    No, it was a random one that I made up.

    Thanks, that makes me feel a teeny bit better. :)

    If you have an exchange email setup you can initiate a remote wipe via the exchange web interface.
