You will need to configure, at minimum, a four-number PIN passcode to unlock your iPad if the screen has been put to sleep or when the iPad is powered on. The URMC profile will prompt you to enter one. You may also choose to increase the passcode complexity and use passwords for higher security. Activating a passcode at any level will encrypt the contents of the iPad. See Passcode Lock & Auto-Lock in Settings > General.
It is highly recommended that you set a timeout for when the iPad will put the screen to sleep and lock itself.
Why enable these security features?
Enabling these features is important for securing the information on your iPad, both sensitive and/or confidential information you may be working with as well as your own personal information. If left unsecured, a debit or credit card attached to your Apple ID could be easily drained of funds. Having the iPad timeout to a passcode lock can help protect you from such an occurrence. Your iPad can also be remotely wiped in case of theft to further protect your information and accounts.
