I was wondering if a 4 digit PIN is used on your computer or iPad to access it, what happens if there are too many failed attempts? Does the device lock up and can't be used? Hopefully, that's the case since an associate had laptop and iPad stolen, both using 4 digit PINs.


I do not do I-stuff but one of two things happens

1: you have a temporary lockout

2: you have to use the full password you used before you set up the PIN.

3: On chromebooks you can do a "Factory Reset" (Power wash) restores it to "Brand new" which means you start over. you also lose anything stored on the internal memory When I Say Brand New I mean the day you first opened the box.


Home is where I park it.
