This feature is not available for certain device types.
You can lock your device if it is lost or stolen.
- In Sophos Central Self Service Portal, click Mobile and then click the relevant device.
Click Actions > Lock.
For iPhones and iPads, you can enter a message of up to 300 characters that will be displayed on the device after it has been locked. For example, you enter a message with a contact number in case your device is found. In the Phone number to display field, you can enter a number that is dialed automatically if somebody taps it in the lock message.
For Macs, you set a 6-digit PIN that must be entered on the Mac to unlock it.
Your device is locked with your current password or, in the case of a Mac, with the system lock PIN.
