    Do any of you enable this security feature? I don't. I'm afraid I might have one too many and....well you get it. Seriously, I can see myself erasing my phones data by mistake. And I figure if someone goes 10 tries without success, I'll have tracked it with Find My iPhone. Do you enable this? If so, why?

    Nope. I'm also scared my **** or something may manage to do 10 wrong attempts.

    I used to, but not anymore. Heck, my iPhone is always in my possession AND because I have it passcode locked.

    I don't because my kids like to try to guess my passcode.

    I don't because I had already forgot the password and needed to set up everything again. Keep it off! You already have the option to erase the phone on iCloud.

    Yep it's set.

    The way the button/function should function is to lock you out after 10 tries, forcing you to connect to iTunes. Connecting to iTunes should reenable the phone.

    Turned it off when I went from Blackberry to 4s and have never turned it back on even on my 5s.

    No it was a default option on my old Palm device and I didn't like the fact that someone a child could possibly erase my data buy simply playing with it

    I have it off. If you get my phone I want it to be completely useless to you.

    I do because my iPhone is my work line. I have a lot of stuff on there from customers and also from my job. I don't have any children, Nor do I let anyone else play with my device. So I think for me, It's okay.

    For people who have kids or other people constantly messing with their devices, It's definitely a risk of losing all your stuff for no reason.

    I use the pass code and Touch ID so no reason in my case and I always carry my phone with me.
