    Let's say, just theoretically, that YOU stole an iPad and you're asking if there is any way someone can track it if you wiped it. The answer is YES.

    Just theoretically...

    Michael, you are always good for a laugh. OP, I am sorry sorry that you are going through this. I hope you get it back. If not, my mom told me that my gramma used to curse people who stole my mom and uncles stuff. If it was like a ball, she cursed them so they would get a rash. My mom cursed my little bros iPod so the theifs ears would itch. TOOO FUNNY. u could curse them and make their brain jumble and they have no recourse but to return it because they forgot how to hack or even think. Lol. Funny anecdote eh?

    im sorry to hear that but unless you're someone who holds importance apple or the police won't do anything about it. apple wants you to cough up more money and the police are just going to add it to a stolen list. 9 out of 10 times, they won't ever come by it.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that.

    OP, sorry to hear about your stolen ipad

    For the rest of forumers, who uses the screen lock passcode where you put 4 digit numbers to unlock the ipad, and if stolen, how much botheration is this screen lock to the theif

    I've heard not a lot because they can just reboot and use another user code. I'm sure I'm right but I have probably said it wrong. Someone explain it
    In IT language.

    My daughter forgot her password and I was able to reset it but with another account not so sure now.

    Not very reassuring then, i use the passlock on my phone, but not on the ipad as it never leaves home and other family members use it while i am away. When you reboot your daughters device, was it a phone? What i want to know is whether the stored data was deleted when you did the reboot?

    Just to clarify a few things.

    Yes, the passcode is not 100%safe, it can be deleted by resetting the whole device.

    However, resetting the iPad cannot be done from the iPad itself, while the passcodelock is on; Rebooting has no effect whatsoever in this regards, as it still asks for the password upon restarting. The device can only be reset via iTunes on a desktop, any iTunes running on a PC/laptop/Mac can reset the ipad/iPhone, which deletes the passcode, but also all data.

    Whether this makes it any safer, or not depends on the point of view.
