    you can't stop it. Once you do and reboot, it will go back to wiping.

    Click on the progress bar/circle, percentage will fade out automatically. Reboot it and try once more. It'll work.

    Why is the Security Wipe taking so long time on my Passport?

    In the future you may want to ensure that you use BBLINK for your wipe and avoid initiating the wipe from your device....notorious for " hanging " the process.

    If you still remain stuck at 98% you can do a hard reboot of device. This will often restart the wipe but typically speeds it through.
    Better yet is to connect device to your desktop and open BBLINK and then do the reboot. This should force recognition of the device and again speed the process through.
    If the above fail to complete for any reason then move to an autoloader.(actually the most efficient way of completing a wipe)
