Apple has a new “security service” that enables people to remotely wipe or decrypt their Apple accounts.
The service was first launched on iOS devices in the fall of 2015, and is now available to all devices running iOS 8.4.
It is also compatible with other Apple devices, including the Apple Watch.
Apple says it can wipe your iPhone or iPad “without your knowledge or permission.”
If you lose your device, you’ll need to restore it to factory settings.
You’ll also need to set up a new Apple ID and password.
The “restore from backup” feature can also be disabled.
The new service, which will only work with devices running the newest version of iOS, is currently available in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Singapore, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
