This Cydia App Called ‘iPrivacy’ Helps Restrict Access to Photos, SMS, iPhone Settings

Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic!

When you hangout with your friends, they usually want to look at your iPhone and checkout all the stuff inside. Install iPrivacy to restrict access to your SMS, photos or iPhone Settings.

By default there’s really no way to restrict your iPhone from other people except by using the built-in pass code feature. Your friends may want to play games but sometimes you may feel unease if they start looking at your (private) photos or SMS’s. Well, this jailbreak tweak may help you.

iPrivacy allows ‘Guest Mode’ on your iPhone or any iOS device, just like how you can enable a guest account on PC or Mac. Once you enable this feature, your friends can still use your iPhone to Google for a restaurant or play games but they won’t be able to read your email, browse the photos or change any settings on your iPhone.

Essentially, you will need to setup two sets of PIN numbers or pass codes, one for yourself and another one for guests. If you enter your own PIN, you will have access to everything. If you enter a Guest PIN, then one can only see things you allow him/her to see.

While this app is free for download, additional plugins are needed if you need to restrict access to your Photos or SMS, and that will cost you at least $1.99. It would be great if it’s free though, but if privacy matters the most for you, it’s really a small price to pay.

It’s available for download on Cydia under the BigBoss repo.

Do you know any alternative software that does the same thing?
