    Hi there,
    just wanted to ask whether there is the option to set Win10M to do a local wipe after a certain amount of failed login attempts? Because I simply can't find the option. However I could have sworn I saw it somewhere at some point ...

    Normally this is configured from an Exchange server policy via MDM.

    I think for normal people, the timeout between failed PIN attempts just keeps growing.

    Oh, ok. So no way to enable something locally for a "normal" user?

    Well, if you can't bypass the PIN, then the only way into the phone is a hard reset, which will wipe the device.

    Or you can trigger a remote wipe from your MS account website.

    Still, they have unlimited tries. Idk. I mean, it is not something I totally miss, but it would be nice to have.
