iCloud and Find My iPhone
iCloud has several features, some of which are more useful than others for use at Loyola. The Find My iPhone feature allows you to track the geographical location of the device, send a message/play a sound on the device, lock the device, and wipe the device. Another useful feature is the ability to remotely backup and restore your device, in case it is damage, lost, stolen or replaced. All of the features of iCloud can be accessed through a web browser by visiting icloud.com.
Mail, Contacts, Calendars
Mail, Contacts, Calendars allows you to access your Exchange account on your iOS device including your email, contacts, and calendar appointments. It is important to note that this is not Outlook, and is a simplified client instead; Outlook has many additional features not available through this client.
What is ActiveSync?
ActiveSync was developed by Microsoft in order to sync email to mobile devices. Both iOS and Android devices currently use ActiveSync to get Loyola email.
Loyola Mobile Security Settings
Starting this summer, having Loyola email on your mobile device will require you to enter a 4-digit passcode to access your device. A 4-digit passcode is an incredibly important security feature to have enabled on all mobile devices; if your mobile device is ever lost or stolen, having a simple passcode prevents immediate access to Loyola-sensitive data, and any other data you have on the device.
Setting up a passcode lock on your device will give you an extra layer of security to make sure the information on the device is secure.

Retiring Your Device
If you're ready for a new device make sure that you properly wipe all your data from the old device. Remember if you have iCloud enabled to remove the iCloud account!
Employees may enroll their devices in AirWatch to add another layer of security. Technology Services will be able to find your device or wipe it if it gets lost or clear the passcode if you forget it.
