    when your phone is locked, you have 10 tries to unlock the phone with a numerical password.

    "Wrong PIN - Attempt 1-10"

    what happens if you miss all 10/10 attempts?

    does it erase your data on the phone completely for security purposes?

    thanks

    i am assuming there is no way to deactivate the wiperoo if it exceeds the 10 tries?

    I haven't seen it, I prefer to keep that off to avoid accidental toddler wipes.

    i thought it was mandatory to have a number password.

    you can deactivate it and just use the fingerprint scan?

    I'd be amazed if that's true?

    Try contacting moto support to find out.

    I meant I would prefer if it didn't wipe after 10 attempts

    You can turn that off. Go into settings then into security. Under device administrators uncheck the "Motorola Local Wipe Policy"
    That will turn off the wipe feature after 10 attempts.
