As per object,I want to disable this feature since if someone tries to unlock my iPhone 8 times i'll get all my data erased.

The slider is now active but grey so I'm not able to deactivate this feature?


Am I missing something?

    Hi Benna,


    I have an iPhone 5 with iOS v6.1.3. I have had the same question and I was not able to disable the "Erase Data" because it was greyed out.

    Just then I remembered that I had Exchange Mail Box configured on my phone. Once I deleted the Exchange MailBox I was able to turn off the "Erase Data" section.


    Now the Erase Data section slider is not greyed out and data wouldn't get deleted if you enter passcode wrongly

    Hope this helps!
