    Default poor security on droid.

    with my iphone, there was no "forgot pin?" option. i do not want the option of "resetting" the pattern or pin. also, i loved thr autowipe feature if you enter the wrong password 10x.

    is there an autowipe feature for the droid that i am missing? how can i make it not ask for a reset option? i want phone crypted, if you dont know pass you cant request one, and i want it to wipe after a string of unsuccessful attempts.

    any help?

    I could be wrong, but I believe if you select the "device encryption" option it will do what you want.

    Cerberus is the best security app I've found. One-time cost, but I think it will do what you want.

    Google Nexus 4 is not a "Droid" as your thread title suggests.

    Android is great, i dont know if its as secure, but im not really worried that the NSA is coming after me.
