[Review] AutoProtect - Make Your Passcode More Intelligent
While the iOS pass code system can be quite secure as long as people donít see you type it in, it still becomes a pain having to enter it when youíre in a safe situation where there is no chance of anyone getting into your iOS device. A new free jailbreak tweak dubbed AutoProtect
by iOS developer FlloTouch will make the pass code system more intelligent so you donít have to enter it at every waking moment of your life that you try to use your iOS device.
So how does AutoProtect make your pass code more intelligent? The tweak makes it so iOS only requests you to enter your pass code when you are not on your home Wi-Fi network. The tweak comes with a preferences pane in the Settings application where you need to enter the name of your home Wi-Fi network. The tweak will actively check your Wi-Fi connections when you change a network and when you are connected to your home Wi-Fi network, iOS will not ask you for your pass code.
The idea behind this tweak is useful because while we are at home, it is usually only our families in the house. This can be either good or bad depending on your home environment. Some people use the pass code to keep family out of their iOS devices as well as their friends and strangers. Other people like to have a family device and keep other people out of it.
For the people that live alone, this tweak is great because it will save you time in getting into your iOS device and keep it secure while you are abroad. If you are interested in making your pass code more intelligent and saving yourself some time from having to enter the pass code all the time, then you should check this tweak out as it works pretty well.
You can enable or disable the tweak at any time to maximize your security.
