How I Use Auto-Lock, Passcode and Erase Data to Protect My iPad and iPhone

Always maintain physical control of your iOS device. All electronic devices are subject to physical attacks, but the portable nature of cellular phones and iPads puts them at particular risk. Publicly available tools allow an attacker with physical access to your device to bypass some of its security mechanisms.
The best protection against physical attacks is to ensure that your iOS device never falls into the wrong hands. Consider the risks of storing sensitive data on your device. This includes corporate information, credit card numbers, saved passwords, and personal data. If a mobile device falls out of your control, consider all the data contained on it compromised.

The Auto-Lock feature makes the screen lock automatically after a specified inactivity period. Ensure that Auto-Lock is activated. A value of 3 minutes or less is recommended.
   1. Go to Settings > General > Auto-Lock
   2.Set "Auto-Lock" to 3 Minutes

When you use only  Auto-Lock does not constitute a security feature, but when combined with Passcode Lock. Use the Pass code Lock feature to assign a four-digit PIN to your iOS device. 

 1.Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock
 2.Set "Pass code Lock" to ON
 3.Set "Require Passcode" to Immediately

Use the Erase Data feature to erase all user-created data after 10 failed passcode attempts. This feature also greatly increases the time between failed access attempts to slow down more persistent attackers.

 1.Go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock
 2.Set "Erase Data" to ON
