Forgot PlayBook password...

So, apparently last night I came up with a clever password for my Playbook. So clever, I now can't remember it. How do I do a security wipe?...

Re: Forgot PlayBook password...

Have you entered the incorrect password ten times yet?

Re: Forgot PlayBook password...

I am also on my ninth try and I need to know what will be wiped. I have spent so much time on my apps.

Re: Forgot PlayBook password...

Any apps you've downloaded will be wiped.

But, those apps you downloaded or purchased from AppWorld will be able to re-download again.

Just a quick question.  When you made that clever password last night where you under the influence?

Re: Forgot PlayBook password...

If I have used up all 10 password attempts, and the Playbook is 'wiped' - am I able to restart and set a new password?

Yep, you've just deleted all personal information and data. Ready to start all over again.
