Thread: Question about app to delete data

  1. #1
    Hi! Just signed up here and I got a question for you guys. I go to a high school that is notorious for forcing students to unlock their phone and then going through their messages. I obviously don't want this to happen. So, this is my question. Is there any way to create an app where on the lock screen i can type in a certain passcode that instead of unlocking the phone, would delete all my data? Like I would have my normal code to unlock but if I get called to the dean I can give them the other code which will delete all my information. Does this app exist and is it even possible?
    Thanks!

    forgot to mention I have a untethered jailbreak on on iPhone 4s with iOS 5.0.1

    Hmmmm not sure it's legal for them to force you to do that. Consult with legal advice.
