'SafeHouse Pro' Disables Your Passcode on Certain Wi-Fi/Bluetooth Networks/Devices
For those that want more control over when their iOS device should ask for a passcode and when it shouldn't, check out a new jailbreak tweak called SafeHouse Pro by iOS developer xsahoo.
This tweak will let you choose five trusted Wi-Fi networks and five trusted Bluetooth devices, and whenever you connect to any of them, your iOS device will not ask you for your configured passcode each time you visit the Lock Screen. On the other hand, if you're not connected to any of your five trusted Wi-Fi networks or five trusted Bluetooth devices, then your iOS device will ask you for your configured passcode.
SafeHouse Pro adds a preferences pane to the Settings application where you can configure your five trusted Wi-Fi networks, your five trusted Bluetooth devices, and even toggle the jailbreak tweak on or off:
With this tweak, you can help ensure that your device is not a drag to have to unlock in places that you know where it's safe, but at the same time, security will remain in places where you aren't so sure about safety.
If you would like to give SafeHouse Pro a try, it's available right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository for $1.99. If you would like to try before you buy, the developer also offers "SafeHouse" for free in Cydia's BigBoss repository, but the tweak is limited to only one Wi-Fi network and doesn't support Bluetooth devices.
Name: SafeHouse Pro
Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6

Seemed like a great tweak at first but it has put me in safe mode several times. Tried to reboot earlier with bluetooth on and ended up in a boot loop on my i5. Ipad air also goes into safe mode when leaving a trusted wifi connection. Uninstalled until fixed.

I also found that if I didn't disable wifi, even when I wasn't within reach of my home network, I was still able to unlock my phone without having to input my PIN. I've been able to replicate the behavior a few times, but it seems hit-or-miss currently. As I keep sensitive work information on my phone, I had to uninstall.

any idea how to manually remove this? I updated today, and now my phone will not unlock. Enter the code and it goes through successfully and then right back to the lock screen. I've tried rebooting but no such luck, and now I can't get into my phone.
