How many attempts are you allowed at an Android passcode before it locks completely?

I may be wrong, but I don't think every Android phone and OS version has the same number of allowed attempts. In fact, I believe on some phones YOU can set the number?
I just did a quick search, and most articles and how-tos just talk of "too many"...
Look in Settings under "Security"or "Privacy"... Or wait for someone smarter to come along
PS: I just tried it on a HTC One M8. Both numeric passcode and Pattern Unlock - it says nowhere How Many Attempts etc... I input the wrong code on purpose twice, and it doesn't say how many attempts I have left.
Nor does the 'manual' say anything about it.
SIM PIN gives me 3 attempts...
