In Old Days the only thing that were private and should be protected were messages, but as the time passed Cameras were installed in Mobile Phones giving them the power to store personal photos in them too. In Today’s modern world almost every sort of personal data is stored in smartphones, thus arising a situation for all the security conscious people out there to secure their data more and more and it is also a good practice applying as much as security as possible, but not much to start getting on your nerve. In Apple device, such security is offered native Passcode and with the help of Cydia Tweak, MultiPass, the security can be extended to the limit which is a demand from many users.
But what exactly does MultiPass do? what type of features does it offer to any Jailbroken user to save its precious data without any problem at all. Installing this app will not increase the security of iOS, I mean a person with good bypassing knowledge can easily break it, but it does give you the power to put more than one Bypass code, that sure put “that”person in great anger. It is fair to say that a large portion of smartphone owners undoubtedly have a number of numerical combinations or Passwords that they use to authenticate themselves.
We think it is also fair to say that we put different passcodes at different positions to save our data and private stuff and it is a fair practice that users put wrong password many times just to remember the right one and in the meantime the device mostly stop the passcode option for a little time, so we can think of if. But MultiPass gets rids of such issue by giving the option of setting multiple passcode, anyone can be used to unlock the device when prompted for authentication.
Like all the great tweaks MultiPass also have a toggle button to turn the Option On and Off with just one single tap. This is really important when the app misbehaves or for troubleshooting an unexpected behaviour when multiple packages from Cydia is installed. If you are using a Jailbroken device and forgets the 4-digit code, then this option will be the best thing for you.Multipass is totally free to download and install after adding the Big Boss respo to Cydia and of course you will need a Jailbroken device.
