Find My iPad and Remote Wipe with MobileMe
Posted on April 1, 2010 by eli courey
Apple is offering the same MobileMe features for the iPad as they do for the iPhone, including Find My iPad and Remote Wipe.
Lose your iPad? Find it with MobileMe.
If you misplace your iPad, MobileMe can help you find it. Log in to me.com to view a map that shows the approximate location of your iPad. If it’s nearby, have it play a sound to help you find it, or display a message on the Home screen to help someone return it to you. The Find My iPad feature works best if your iPad includes both Wi-Fi and 3G, but it will also find your Wi-Fi-only iPad when it’s connected to a wireless network.
Protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.
Your iPad contains information you don’t want in the hands of a stranger. So if you lose your iPad and displaying a message on it hasn’t resulted in its safe return, you can remotely lock it with a passcode or initiate a remote wipe and restore factory settings. If you eventually find your iPad, you can restore your email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks by enabling your MobileMe account on iPad.
