I just set up a PIN to my device when I saw the option of enabling auto factory reset after 15 wrong attempts to unlock my phone and I now wonder: for how long are these 15 attempts valid? One hour? Day? Ever?

    I do not think it would make sense to take an action if the failed attempts are not consecutive (no successful login in between, that is). – Firelord Apr 17 at 2:24

The failed unlock counter will reset when the device is successfully unlocked.

    I won't try it myself, but it makes sense and I don't know how I didn't realize it. Thanks. – gamofe Apr 17 at 10:52
