Good to know, my son loves to play with my phone, I'll have to make sure to keep it out of his hands or else I'm also going to be one pissed off user.

Soooooo stupid.
My other phones would allow password recovery via Google.

With this feature/bug it means someone just wanting to piss you off can wipe your phone, if they get hold of it for 20 seconds.

On the HTC M7/M8 you can disable this if you are rooted by setting "devicepolicy_max_fail_passwords_for_wipe = 0" in an XML file.
It has to be doable on this phone.
The lockscreen app has to get it's parameters/information from somewhere.
