'QuickPass' Lets You Quickly Toggle Your Passcode On or Off
Normally, when you want to enable or disable the passcode in iOS on demand, you have to go through the pain-staking process of going through Apple's verification process to verify that you're you and that you want to turn the passcode on or off. It takes a bit of time going through the steps, and it would be nice if there was a simple way to easily toggle it on or off.
Well now you can. A new jailbreak tweak called QuickPass by iOS developer Noeliel is now available in Cydia that lets you easily turn the iOS passcode on or off without having to verify that you're you, and it's as simple as flicking a new switch that appears in the main pane of the Settings application, as shown above.
When you have a passcode configured, turning the passcode switch to the on position will ensure that your device is protected with a passcode, while on the other hand, turning the passcode switch to the off position will ensure that your device is not going to ask you for a passcode.
It might be handy to have this easy toggling process if you decide that you're somewhere where you don't need your passcode momentarily and don't want to deal with the cumbersome act of having to enter it every time you unlock your device, but as soon as you're ready to be protected again, all you have to do is turn the switch on without having to re-configure your passcode.
The switch is nicely integrated into the main pane of the Settings application for easy access, so you won't have to dig deep into your Settings application to use QuickPass either.
If you would like to give QuickPass a try, it's available in Cydia's BigBoss repository for 99¢. Notably, the tweak works with both iOS 6 and iOS 7 and is also compatible with Touch ID. Both 32-bit and 64-bit iOS devices are supported.
Requirements: iOS 6.0-7.0.6
Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6, iPad Mini with retina display running iOS 7.0.6

Decided to use this as an alternative to Safehouse until the dev updates it. Unfortunately this tweak has its share of problems too. A respring or reboot while enabled will cause your device to get stuck at the lockscreen. Keypad will come up to unlock but entering your passcode does nothing but take you back to the lockscreen. I had to reboot in safe mode to remove it.
