    If find my iPhone is turned on on your iPad at the time it is lost, you can find its location whenever it's connected to the Internet by going to iCloud.com and logging into your account. You can also remotely erase the iPad. You can also set your iPad to erase itself after 10 failed attempts to enter the passcode.

    Your data is safe. The device itself was encrypted from the minute you first set it up and the passcode will prevent anyone from viewing your data. No need for worry :)

    If 10 failed attempts is on, your data will delete when someone tries to guess your password in an attempt to reuse your iPad. This would be the first thing someone would try. But your personal info would be gone. If you want to try and find your iPad, you should probably turn ( erase all data after 10 failed attempts ) off and use find my iPhone. You can always erase all data remotely.

    Hello jaba123
    No. If (erase all data after 10 failed attempts) is turned on, iPad will still need 10 try's to erase your data including the ability to use the (find my iPhone) feature either way your data is fairly safe. You can also use an extended passcode to lock iPad instead of just a simple 4 digit lock to make it even a little harder guess.
