Hello - on iOS, if you enter the wrong lock screen pass code too many times, the phone progressively takes longer and longer before allowing you to retry entering the pass code, ultimately locking it indefinitely after several increases (30 seconds to 5 minutes, 30 minutes etc) . From what I can tell- Android only locks out for 30 seconds no matter how many attempts it seems. Does anyone know a way to secure it for a longer period of time or auto-wipe after x failed password attempts should it fall in the wrong hands and the password is guessed incorrectly too many times? Thanks!
