It is important to inform the user that the next failed verification will cause their device to be wiped. This function will be called by the Local Authentication Subsystem (LASS) when the user has only one more verification attempt available.
It is not required to implement a dialog for this function. Depending on how the LAP is implemented, notification could be done by voice or the user may not be notified at all.
This function is called by the LASS, not the application. Therefore, no link library is exposed. .
