Thread: How to Disable the Lock Screen Camera Grabber in iOS 8

    Default How to Disable the Lock Screen Camera Grabber in iOS 8

    If you've got issues with the Camera Grabber on the Lock Screen, for example, you're always opening the Camera when you don't mean to, then you may have looked for a way to disable it only to find that Apple doesn't give you that option.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called Disable Camera Grabber by iOS developer Greg is now available in Cydia that will take care of the accidental Camera opening problem that you may be experiencing with your clumsy fingers. Once installed, this tweak disables the functionality of the Camera Grabber on the iOS 8 Lock Screen.

    It is worth noting that this tweak will not hide the Camera Grabber icon from the iOS 8 Lock Screen like you would expect it to (we're not sure why the developer didn't include that in the tweak's feature set), but if you try to swipe up on the Camera Grabber icon on the Lock Screen with this tweak installed, nothing will happen.

    Fortunately, this is a nice solution for those of you that are sick of opening the Camera by accident, but it would be nice if the useless icon was removed from the Lock Screen as well, and the tweak doesn't do that, so that's something to keep in mind.

    If you're interested in giving Disable Camera Grabber a try, it's available for free right now in Cydia's BigBoss repository. The tweak is intended for iOS 8 users. There are no options to configure with this tweak.
