How To Use Passcode - iPad Mini 2

Learn how to use passcode on your iPad Mini 2. Security features help protect the information on your iPad from being accessed by others.

Use a passcode with data protection

  • Initially, iPad doesnt require you to enter a passcode to unlock it. You can set a passcode that must be entered each time you turn on or wake up iPad.

Set a passcode

  • Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock and set a 4-digit passcode.

  • Setting a passcode turns on data protection, using your passcode as a key to encrypt Mail messages and attachments stored on iPad, using 256-bit AES encryption. (Other apps may also use data protection.)

Increase security

  • Turn off Simple Passcode and use a longer passcode. To enter a passcode thats a combination of numbers and letters, you use the keyboard. If you prefer to unlock iPad using the numeric keypad, set up a longer passcode using numbers only.

Allow access to features when iPad is locked

  • Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock. Optional features include: Siri

Allow access to Control Center when iPad is locked

Erase data after ten failed passcode attempts

  • Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock and tap Erase Data. After ten failed passcode attempts, all settings are reset, and all your information and media are erased by removing the encryption key to the data.

  • If you forget your passcode, you must restore the iPad software.
