    Hello all. I'm new to this. I have a question. So someone stole my old Iphone 6 plus. If they jailbreak it, is all my info, apps etc still on the phone? Or does it completely erase?

    Is the iPhone secured? Why would someone think to Jailbreak it? Most who steal iPhones, likely Have the intention of selling it.

    You're probably thinking that to get access to your iPhone all someone needs to do is jailbreak it. But, that's putting the cart before the horse.

    In order to jailbreak a device you need to already be able to fully access the phone (i.e, you cannot jailbreak a device from the lockscreen).

    This being the case, the thieves would already have access to your apps/data by virtue of having gotten past the lockscreen and there would be no need for a jailbreak.

    Also if you had Find My iPhone on you could potentially locate it and/or remote wipe it.

    Sorry I'm using the wrong terminology. I guess it's not jailbreaking. I did have a passcode on it. I meant is there anyway for the thieves to get any info, look at pics etc?

    I did not have Icloud set up yet.

    Only if they know an exploit.

    If Find My iPhone was not on when it was stolen then they can simply restore the device (via DFU mode) and go from there. That will mean your data is wiped, but they will have a usable phone until it's blacklisted.

    Thank you very much sir! It was deactivated a couple days before it was known stolen. No need to blacklist then, correct?

    I would still contact your carrier regardless and have them blacklist it if applicable.

    Totally agree with this.

    If you do not report it stolen and it's never blacklisted there's always the chance it can still be used at some point.

    No, they cannot jailbreak it unless they can get into the homescreen and its on an ios version that can be JB.
    But since you had a pass-code on they cannot get any of your info that was on it.
    If you had icloud find my iPhone enabled do not remove it from your account. It will be a useless device to the thieves.

    It's impossible for them to JB it. But if you're worrying about your data. It's safe based on my understanding of your said prob
