Remote Device Wipe

Remote device wipe is a feature that enables the Microsoft Exchange server to set a mobile device to delete all data the next time that the device connects to the Exchange server. A remote wipe effectively removes all synchronized information and personal settings from a mobile device. This can be useful when a device is lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised. After a remote wipe has occurred, it is very difficult to recover data. However, no data removal process leaves a device as free from residual data as it is when it is new. Recovery of data from a device may still be possible by using sophisticated tools.  Please refer to Mobile Device Management within Office 365 Web App for more information on how to remote wipe your device.


Rarely, you may run into a situation where your device can not communicate with the server using the default set up seen here. Please see this article for Alternative Settings that may be used.
