Thread: FolderLock: Protect Folders + (Settings, Spotlight, Multitasking)

    Default FolderLock: Protect Folders + (Settings, Spotlight, Multitasking)


    Andrea Oliva (@abart997 has developed and submitted a new tweak for the iDevice called FolderLock. Hence the name, this tweak gives you the ability to password lock your folders on the iDevice.

    Tweaks like Locktopus have given the user password protection on applications. With FolderLock upcoming soon, you'll be able to use the same principle with folders as well. Settings for FolderLock are located in the Settings.app under its name FolderLock. The settings are pretty simple with an Enable/Disable switch and Insert password. A Protect Options section has some toggles for protecting the Settings.app, Spotlight, and Multitasking. Andrea gives a word of warning in regards to two particular applications; Settings.app and Cydia.app:

    Don't put the Settings.app or Cydia.app inside a folder. If you forget your password and can't access both of these applications, then it makes things much more difficult. If this does happen however, you can remove FolderLock via SSH (/Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries). SBSettings allows you to disable it also.


    It has been submitted to the BigBoss repo and should be available soon. Upon release, it will be available on Cydia for $1.59.

    Name: FolderLock
    Author: Andrea Oliva
    Price: $1.59

    While getting a .deb from Andrea, I asked him a few simple questions:

    JOSH: How long did it take you to make FolderLock?
    ANDREA: It took me about one week or so.

    JOSH: Are you planning on adding any new implementations or features to FolderLock soon?
    ANDREA: I'm not planning anything at this current time.

    JOSH: Any upcoming projects, tweaks, or applications that you'd like to mention?
    ANDREA: None at the moment.

    Below is a demo of FolderLock (by me):

    ***EDIT*** FolderLock is now up on the BigBoss repo (as of 5 minutes ago)
