    Default [Review] FMFUnlocker - Easier Find My Friends Access


    Has it ever been a pet peeve of yours where Apple’s Find My Friends application demands that you sign in with your Apple ID each time you open the application when you don’t have a pass code set? This is an understandable security measure, making sure no one who grabs your iDevice can find out where your friends are located without their permission. Normally, the only way that Find My Friends will remember your Apple ID password for you is when you have a pass code guarding your iDevice.

    If you’re not very concerned about security problems plaguing you, then a new free jailbreak tweak dubbed FMFUnlocker by iOS developer James Magahern will allow Find My Friends to save your Apple ID password even when you do not have a pass code set; letting you easily log in without the inconvenience of having to log in each and every time you launch the application.

    The tweak is very good for anyone who is lazy and hates retyping things over and over. This is understandable as it quickly becomes a chore. It will also fare well for anyone that watches over their iDevice like a hawk and rarely lets anyone touch it.

    While the tweak does what it says it will do very well, there are some major disclaimers that need to be understood, for example, everyone associated with your Find My Friends application will be able to be tracked by any absolute stranger that just so happens to get ahold of your iDevice. Furthermore, the tweak does not hold any safety measures; it simply does its thing when installed and will not stop until it is uninstalled. There are no preferences to configure for FMFUnlocker and you need to have Apple's Find My Friends application installed to use it.

    Name: FMFUnlocker
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0

    Is there any way to have this work with Siri? I can ask Siri where is "friends name" and she will locate them if you have a passlock. But she says she can't if this tweak is installed because I'm not logged into my find my friends account. Is there a way around this? Thanks
