Lock Screen is a source of information
Settings / Touch ID and Passcode / Scroll down to 'Allow Access When Locked' - Good idea to switch off Wallet

Further down on that screen 'Erase Data' - OFF/ON - If ON then data on phone is erased after 10 failed passcode attempts.

Question: Suppose phone is stolen, data is erased and then phone is recovered. How is phone re-enabled?

Question: What does 'Data protection is enabled' mean?

Hi David, In response to your Question:

"Suppose phone is stolen, data is erased and then phone is recovered. How is phone re-enabled?" -
I don't think it can be. If it could, then the criminals would have access to the process and be able to re-enable it.

Question: What does 'Data protection is enabled' mean?
It means the encryption on the device is linked to your passcode, and the passcode is needed to de-encrypt it. Or would that be un-encrypt it!

Hope that helps
