A 3-year-old boy locked out his dad’s iPad for more than 48 years by entering the wrong password repeatedly.

iPad lockout feature is a security feature with Apple devices, the kicks out whenever someone entering the wrong password.

If you enter wrong password for six times it get you 1 minute lockout, 7 gives you 5 minutes lockout, eight gives 15, and nine 1 hour. Like this more times incorrect password entered lock-out time grows.

Evan Osnos tweeted a cry for help, letting the world know of the little situation his toddler put him in, reported Fox5.

He posted a tweet asking for help, with the locked iPad’s screen which shows a mind-blowing message “iPad is disabled, try again in 25,536,442 minutes.”

25,536,442 minutes is more than 48 years, so Osnos can get his phone unlocked in 2067.

Sadly, now the only option to unlock the iPad is by using forget your passcode option, but it completely restores the current data.

Osnos told the New York Daily News on Monday that his device is still locked, “It’s down a few hundred minutes from yesterday, but it looks like we’ve still got 25 million minutes to go.”

He later tweeted that he Got into DFU mode and he is in the process of restoring the device.
