So basically, the "Require Passcode" tab lets you set the amount of time that passes by before your iPad asks for a password. "Immediately" is just as it sounds — the device will request that you enter a password upon turning on the device or waking it up from sleep. Otherwise, you can pick a time range between 1 minute to 4 hours.
