    We have seen a myriad of attempted security enhancement tweaks in Cydia before, but not like this. Protecti, by iOS developer gviridis, gives you a plethora of options for keeping people out of your personal, virtual belongings. We all know that our phones keep personal messages, photographs, and histories that should never be searched through by other eyes without permission.
