10 times wrong password* What will happen? And Blackberry Protect*

Regarding about Blackberry Password Mechanism on all BB bolds, if you incorrectly input wrong password in any set of tries e.g (10 times or 2 times at lowest)* It will wipe all the data I know that but will the password still appear or will it ask for the same password after the wiping was done? before it will initialize to run? Ok the reason I got interested was we all are eligible to use Blackberry Protect to locate a lost or stolen device, display message or lock it even command to do a loud sound alert. But I'm trying to clarify if however a stolen device and the person who stole it will input an incorrect password and the device wipes itself and it doesn't ask for the previous password then the Protection system has a flaw. And if it did that it doesnt ask for the password after wiping it is there a way to disable wiping*? Any experienced users gladly like to recieve idea.

After the wipe, and subsequent reboot, you not be asked the password again.
