As you might expect from our smartphones, it comes in handy with a full feature set. However, there are features that we are experiencing in our news that our phone is always available. One of these is the dangerous iPhone feature that we will talk about in a moment.
Some of us use our smartphones, which are constantly available throughout the day, for specific purposes only. Apart from these, useful or dangerous features do not attract the attention of most people. At this point, there is a dangerous iPhone feature that many people do not know. You guessed the feature that at first glance it looks scary because we do not like the fact that a feature other than our unit knowledge has been erased.
The feature works as follows: If you have set a password on the screen of your iPhone device and you have made 10 wrong combinations when entering this password, your device will be able to remove all your data in order to secure itself. However, these false entries may not always be a newsreader of a malicious person. It is very likely that a mini-neck that seizes your phone will also be found in the wrong combination all the time.
If you look at the feature, it is subject to the device is automatically turned off unless you turn it on. So especially if you are asking for it, there is no need for tension. However, if you have already touched “Settings-> ID- and Password-> Delete Data” and you have over 10 wrong trials within three hours, you may need to say goodbye to all the information on your phone.
If you would like to ask “why 3 hours?”, Let’s say: 5 times without fail, iOS puts a 1-minute time limit for retry. The only thing you can do during this time is to call emergency numbers. 6. After the experiment, this time is 5 minutes and after 7th test, it is 15 minutes. When these time-outs are calculated, you can complete 10 incorrect passwords in only 3 hours.
So, in theory, this “data wiping”, which looks horrible, is not an immediate action. At this point, if you are only using your phone and it makes you uncomfortable passing someone else’s hand, you can activate the feature. However, if any child can access your phone, the feature will not be good for you.
