IOS data Protection iPad
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.
Enable Find my iPhone
- Locate and track your device on a map
- Play a sound on your device to locate it when nearby
- Remotely lock or erase your lost iOS device
Apps can use and share information and features on your device. This can include contacts, location services, photos, microphone access, and other data and features. iOS asks you the first time an app requests your data. You have the option to accept or decline.
If you change your mind later, or want to check which apps you've given permission to use your data, this information is available in Settings > Privacy:
You can reset all location-service and privacy warnings, requiring you to accept or decline again, using Settings > General > Reset > Reset Location & Privacy.
When using iOS 7, iTunes and your device will ask you to trust the computer as an additional security step.
If you use a passcode, you need to unlock your device before the computer will sync data or other content with it.
Encrypt your backup
If you back up your data using iCloud, it's automatically secured and encrypted. When you back up your device using iTunes, your backup data is stored on your computer. You can further protect the backup data stored on the computer using the Encrypt Backup option (and be sure to remember your password):
Remember your passcodes and passwords
It is important to remember your passcode and passwords. If you forget your passcode or passwords, you may not be able to access or recover your data.

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 its unusable without a set passcode, plus displays a message you provide. This is excellent anti-theft protection, and even if you never end up using it, its good to know how to do.
With iCloud and iOS 5 or later you can locate, display a message on, remotely lock, or wipe (erase) your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac
