    As they are saying that Lumia 640 and Lumia 640 XL are having update 2 i.e GDR 2 and we will be having a feature called "Reset Protection mode". If you have this feature enabled no one would be able to get the info out of your phone , even Hard reset won't work.
    My question is : How to enable/activate this "Reset Protection mode" ?

    I read if you go to FIND MY PHONE you can change setting but I don't see any settings for this on my XL

    Me too.......... There is nothing in find my phone, except a square to "tick" save phones location periodically before battery runs out. i can't find any options related to "reset protection" in my Lumia 640.

    I don't have a 640(XL) so I can't personally comment, however on my carrier's forum, someone created a thread on this, and contacted MSFT who said Reset Protection was only enabled in the US at the moment. We're in the UK.

    Hopefully this changes sooner rather then later...

    My Lumia got update today. Not much info about it, though, but it returned few apps back on the phone (News, Money, Fitbit, Flipboard).

    My 830 has now picked up Update 2.

    Anyone from the UK (or outside the US) managed to get Reset Protection working??
