    Default 'Photego' Makes You Confirm With Touch ID Before You Can Delete Camera Roll Photos


    More than likely, you've been plagued by someone trying to get into your Photos application and deleting photos that you didn't want them to delete, such as your friends/spouses deleting embarrassing photos of themselves that you took at a recent special event when they did something completely and utterly hilarious that made them look like an idiot.

    If you want to keep unauthorized people from being able to delete photos from your photo library in iOS 8, then you need to check out a new jailbreak tweak called Photego by iOS developer sharedRoutine.

    This new tweak will require that the user inputs their fingerprint before they can follow through with deleting a photo or video from your photo library. This obviously means that you need a device that supports Touch ID, like an iPhone 5s or later, or one of Apple's latest iPads, but the idea here is to make sure that no one can delete your precious memories from your iOS device.

    Not only will the tweak protect photos and videos that are in any album of your photo library, but it will also protect photos that are in the "Recently Deleted" album, so that they can't be permanently deleted without a fingerprint either.

    The tweak also restricts photo access from the Camera application, and makes it so that Touch ID is required before any photo or video in your photo library can be shared via e-mail, text message, or social network. This way, even the embarrassing pictures of you are safe from being spread around the Interwebz in a viral manner. The preferences pane for the tweak, which is added to the Settings application and is shown below, is also Touch ID-protected to prevent unwanted settings tampering:



    From the tweak's preferences pane, you can:

    • Enable or disable the tweak on demand
    • Touch ID-protect the preferences pane in the Settings application
    • Touch ID-protect photos and videos in your photo library
    • Touch ID-protect photos and videos from deletion
    • Touch ID-protect photos and videos from recovery
    • Touch ID-protect the Camera application
    • Touch ID-protect albums from being accessed in the Photos application
    • Touch ID-protect media in your photo library from being shared with iOS' share features


    Overall, this seems like a super awesome tweak for ensuring that no one can tamper with your memories that you have stored in your Photos application. If you'd like to give the tweak a try, it's available for 99 in Cydia's BigBoss repository right now. Keep in mind that the tweak requires an iOS 8 device with Touch ID capability.

    Name: Photego
    Price: 99
    Version: 1.0
    Requirements: iOS 8.0-8.1.2, Touch ID

    Isn't it the same price to get AppLocker and be able to lock down any apps you want?

    It does not protect opening the application. All it protects is the sensitive data within.

    So you're better off with applocker as it does a lot more for your phone for the same price.

    Depends on what you want. If you want a full-system lockdown, then you would go with AppLocker. If you just want very feature-filled Photos app protection, one would use a tweak like this.

    The tweak is actually good for keeping YOURSELF from accidentally deleting photos too, because the prompt for your fingerprint is kind of a reminder to authenticate the deletion.
