    Default 'BetterPasscodeKeypad' Hides the Tapping Animations From the Passcode Screen


    One of the big worries with Lock Screen passcodes is that someone looking over your shoulder might see what your passcode is while you're putting in your passcode. It doesn't help that the tapping animations for the individual key presses are like neon signs showing anyone that might be watching exactly where you just tapped.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called BetterPasscodeKeypad by iOS developer Oliver Kuckertz will disable the tapping animations on the passcode keypad so that when you're tapping on the numbers, they don't light up for everyone to see where you just tapped.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure a few options:



    You can easily enable or disable the tapping animations on demand, depending on how you’re feeling, but the tweak also lets you enable or disable the keypad sounds, and enable or disable vibration (as haptic feedback) when you tap on passcode keys as an alternative to the tapping animations.

    When it comes right down to it, BetterPasscodeKeypad seems like an obvious step towards a more secure device. If you want to give the tweak a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak does require iOS 7.

    Name: BetterPasscodeKeypad
    Price: FREE
    Version: 0.2.1-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.4
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.4
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Oliver Kuckertz
    Editor's Rating: / 4.5/5

    Funny thing is a vendor was doing an app demo from a iphone connected to a projector. We all could see the password on the big screen thanks to the flashing on each button they pressed.
