Enter Passcode screenLearn how to make your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch more secure.

The easiest step you can take to keep your data safe is to use a passcode, yet many smartphone users don't. When using a passcode, you'll be prompted to enter it any time you turn on your device or unlock your screen.

You can configure a passcode when you are setting up your device for the first time, or by following these steps. With iPhone 5s, you can also use Touch ID as a seamless way to use your fingerprint as a passcode.

How to Remotely Wipe a Mac
In an extreme situation, say a Mac is lost or stolen, you can remotely wipe the Mac of all its data and contents with the help of iCloud. Remotely wiping a Mac goes a step further though and not only removes all data from the computer, but locks it down so that it’s unusable without a set passcode, plus displays a message you provide.
