FolderLock Cydia tweak protect your folders
FolderLock Cydia Tweak Allows
To Protect Your iOS Folders
Don’t put the Settings.app or Cydia.app inside a folder. If you forget your password and can’t access both of these applications, then it makes things much more difficult. If this does happen however, you can remove FolderLock via SSH (/Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries). SBSettings allows you to disable it also.
If you’re looking for some great jailbreak tweaks for your jailbroken iOS device, we’ve recently put together a list of our favorites. All of these tweaks may not be free, but they’re definitely worth a look and will allow you to get the most out of your device.
If you’ve been looking for a great way to protect your folders from unauthorized fingers, this tweak may have the solution. Folder Passcode was created by the same developer who brought us Icon Passcode and it offers the same simplistic functionality.
After you’ve installed the tweak, you’ll have to set a master passcode in the Settings app. Once you’ve placed a few apps inside of a folder, there’s a secret way to enable its passcode protection. First, put a folder in wiggle mode. Next, replace the folder’s title with “[lock]” and tap “Done” on the keyboard. The folder will revert back to its original title and passcode protection will be enabled.
This is definitely a great tweak, but it would have been nice to see this type of functionality in Icon Passcode. Either way, Folder Passcode adds another level of customization and security to your jailbroken iOS device.
Passcode is available in the Cydia Store (via the ModMyi repository) for free.
