    It is secure in the fact that it won't allow people to access your media, but a force restore and the iPod is theirs.

    There is a plist file that can be edited (I used this when I forgot my passcode)

    PM me if you need instructions.

    ok thanks.. i don't think whoever stole it (i think i know, i might kick their ass) doesn't know how to do all that

    I think even if you restore it passcode is stil there. It will restore, deleting everything but it will ask for passcode once its finished restoring. It did for me anyway.

    No.. I couldnt even connect it to itune.. My cousin was joking around and set passcode so I restored it.. But it asked for passcode right after I restored so I had to force my cousin to tell me the passcode..
