Re: lose tablet

Did you have the 4G version?

 

BlackBerry protect was never on the Playbook only BB10 and unless you downloaded some 3rd party software and had the 4G there's not a lot you can do about it.

 

Sorry for your loss.

Re: lose tablet

Hopefully you had at least set a password on it. This is good enough to stop from all but serious attempts to get the information off it.

Did it have its own data plan to use anywhere in the street , or did it always need wifi hotspot?

Re: lose tablet

Ok so its not 4g so nothing to block.

 

If you had a password you had to enter to open up the screen, and it was active when you lost it you should be safe, but if not then the new "owner" has access to your email accounts and any social network accounts you had activated by apps. Get online and change all your email and network passwords now!
