Chances are, you have a ton of passwords; and you might even use some of them on a regular basis on your iPhone. If you have an iPhone 5s, and you're tired of constantly signing into services by manually tying your passwords, you can take advantage of a new jailbreak tweak called iTouchSecure
by SpiritOfLogic, the makers of popular tweaks like iRealSMS
, and PhotoAlbums+
iTouchSecure makes your life easier by letting you use your fingerprint with Touch ID to automatically input stored passwords into the password field. Once you input a password once, it's saved in an encrypted Password Keychain, and then iTouchSecure will ask you to verify your fingerprint. If your fingerprint checks out, then the password field will be auto-filled with the password saved in your Password Keychain. (You can still type out your password manually, if you choose to, of course.)
iTouchSecure works in App Store applications, such as Facebook, Twitter, and others; it also works in Web views in Mobile Safari.
When a sign-in prompt comes up, you'll enter your username, and if the box is yellow, that means there is not yet a password stored for that sign-in and you need to sign in at least once. If the password box is green and shows a Touch ID icon, this is telling you that the tweak sees a password for your username and that you can use Touch ID to auto-fill the password box by verifying your fingerprint.

iTouchSecure also works with devices that don't have a Touch ID sensor. Those who only want the password auto-fill feature for any password, but donít require the fingerprint authentication security can install it on non-iPhone 5s devices to get this feature. It works best on the iPhone 5s, however.
iTouchSecure looks to be a very promising tweak for iPhone 5s users, and for sure, it's one of the most impressive tweaks we've seen for iOS 7 yet. The implementation of the tweak appears to be very straightforward for users, and very useful too. If you want to download iTouchSecure, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $4.99.
