While the iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad) excel at ease of use, the maximum protection you’re offered is a passcode lock with an option to erase all personal data upon 10 incorrect attempts. While it may serve enough for lost/stolen cases, what if you want to temporarily hand over your device to someone for use and don’t want prying eyes peering through your personal emails, messages, photos, or launching applications that you want to keep private? For all this, and much more, jailbreakers are in for a treat again. Cydia offers quite a few capable solutions, each with their own distinctive features that can offer much better privacy protection than the native iOS.
In this article, we’ll provide a quick rundown of the three most promising solutions for password protecting your apps: Lockdown Pro, FolderLock andLocktopus.
