In other words, it could take a thief about 10 seconds to steal your unprotected iPad and start tapping into all your personal information!
- From the Home page of your iPad, iPod Touch, or iPhone, tap the Settings icon (see image at left).
- Tap "Gerneral."
- Tap "Passcode Lock."
- Tap "Turn Passcode On."
- Enter a 4-digit numerical passcode on the "Set Passcode" pop-up and keep it in a secure place in your brain or elsewhere.
- Adjust the length of time after which your iGadget will require you to enter a passcode, balancing security with the factors of convenience and ananoyance.
- Tap the Home button again to return to whatever you were doing with your device.
