Privacy has ultimate importance for Y generation people living in this highly mechanical society. Mostly among us are paying hundreds of dollars to just get protection for our personal content. The gadgets used by people are the primary source of leakage of personal data. The basic purpose of hackers is to get critical data about people to blackmail them and also they use your bank account or credit card’s details to steal money.

The foremost reason of getting a victim of hackers is that you aren’t taking basic security measures. If you are securing your gadgets with good antivirus software or by setting difficult passwords then you can protect yourself from getting hijacked.

There was some news on 9to5mac that hackers were remotely locking iOS and Mac devices of Australian users few weeks before. Suppose if some day you wake up and notice that somebody has locked your iDevice remotely or pulling out your data from your iCloud or stealing your credit card’s information; how would you feel? It will make you annoyed and helpless.

It’s better to secure your iOS 7 device before it’s too late. Here I bring a jailbreak tweak for you, that will help you to lock almost each and everything on your iOS 7 device with a password. The tweak is called JRLocker and it’s available free of cost for users having jailbroken devices.

What JRLocker Does?

JRLocker tweak helps you to password protect your iOS apps, default apps, settings, hidden services, iTunes store, camera and almost everything. You are just required to install it and follow the below steps to get this tweak’s functionality enabled.

Step 1: Go to your Cydia store and type “JRLocker” in the search bar and install it.

Step 2: Go to your iOS device’s settings and further open JRLockerSettings.

Hurray! you’re successful in password protecting your iOS device’s apps and other important things. Now when anybody will try to access your apps or other data, he’ll have to enter the password to get access to your data.

Some apps like email apps available in official app store have built-in feature to protect their-self with password, though you should have this app to password protect apps and other things that don’t have built-in feature of user restriction. JRLocker is available in Cydia and pwered by BigBoss.

Update 1x: JRLocker’s developer has updated it for iOS 7.1, 7.1.1 and 7.1.2.
