How To Wipe Lost or Stolen Device Data

If your phone or other mobile device has been replaced or is lost, stolen, or otherwise compromised, you can protect your identity by remotely wiping sensitive data from the device using the Office 365 Outlook Web App (OWA).

Perfoming a remote wipe will remove all synchronized information and personal settings from the device, returning the device to its original factory settings.

  1. Log into with your UARK email address and password.
  2. Click the Settings icon in the upper right corner. Click Mail under "Your app settings."
  3. On the left, click General and select Mobile devices.
  4. Select the phone or other mobile device to be wiped.
  5. Click the "Wipe All Data" icon and click OK. 
  6. Click "Remove Phone from List."

A recovered device can be added back to the list of mobile devices by syncing your email and calendar from the device.
