BioProtect Tweak Lets You Protect Your Apps With Touch ID
BioProtect, a highly anticipated tweak developed by Elias Limneos (SBRotator, CallBar, Aquaboard, AudioRecorder), lets you protect your apps with Touch ID and is now available for download in Cydia. A short teaser was posted about a week ago shortly after the iOS 7 jailbreak was released.
BioProtect allows you to add another layer of protection and set certain apps to require fingerprint authentication. For instance, you can set certain apps to not open unless you rescan your fingerprint (Ex Opening Photos will require you to scan your finger again to gain access to the app). It also listens to application launch events and blocks them from opening unless you verify your fingerprint -- so if you open the Messages app from your Phone app, BioProtect would know to request authentication
Add stylish protection to your applications and prevent opening them unless you authenticate using your fingerprint! No need to fear if someone sees your password while you type it! The most secure and yet fastest way to protect your applications, presented with a very cool UI. Touch ID needs less than a second to verify a correctly added fingerprint! The tweak listens to application launch events and blocks them if the application is listed as protected until you enter your Touch ID! It protects applications from launching from Notification Center, from App Slider (former App Switcher), from lock screen and of course from tapping their icon to launch them.Enjoy the fastest and yet most secure protection!
You can purchase BioProtect from the Cydia Store for $2.99 on the BigBoss Repo.
Update: For those of you experiencing heat issues on your iPhone 5s, the developer is aware has found the issue and already issued a fix. Be sure to update to the latest version found in Cydia.
