Well-known iOS forensics expert, Jonathan Zdziarski, has released a tweak on Cydia by the name of PairLock that makes the iPhone more secure when connecting it to untrusted devices via a cable, especially if you don’t use a passcode.
iOS doesn’t let you disable this behaviour, which is why Zdziarski made PairLock that lets you lock or unlock pairing. If you travel often, and plug your iPhone into untrusted charging stations or computers, then you should definitely install PairLock. It is available on Cydia for $1.99.
