About iPad Encryption and Setup

All iPads ship with powerful hardware encryption built-in, but you need to enable it. The simplest way to do that is to set a passcode on your iPad: As soon as you do, your data will be automatically encrypted. 

To enable a passcode, go to Settings -> General -> Passcode Lock and then enter a four-digit code twice. If you’d like to be extra-safe, you can turn the Simple Passcode option on that same page off; you can then use longer codes.

**There is a process for configuring/setting up an iPad for campus use.  A ticket should be created and given to ITS Technical Services for the configuration process to be completed.
