Z10 File Access Password

When connecting the Z10, or any Blackberry to the computer it will ask for a password. I see it gives 5 attempts maximu. 

 

I was wondering, if someone gets this password wrong 5X, does this wipe the phone just like getting it 10X wrong as like with  the login in to the phone?

Re: Z10 File Access Password

Hey Jerryg50,

 

After 5 password attempts a prompt pops up on BlackBerry Link  "Before you can continue, enter your password on your device before trying to connect to BlackBerry Link" Then you need to type the word "blackberry' on the BlackBerry Z10 and enter your password. You have a total of 10 attempts 5 on BlackBerry Link and 5 on the BlackBerry Z10.

Cheers.
