AutoProtect: Jailbreak Tweak Disables iPhone’s Passcode When Connected to Home Wi-Fi Network

While it is important to enter a passcode on your iPhone, it can get a little annoying especially when you’re at home, where you really don’t want to be prompted to enter the passcode, especially if you’ve selected the longer alphanumeric passcode.

A new jailbreak called AutoProtect developed by Florent Cardoen (@Fllorent0D). The jailbreak tweak detects if your iOS device is connected to your Home Wi-Fi network and disables passcode.

If you’ve multiple Wi-Fi networks at home, you’re covered as the tweak allows you to enter names of up to 5 Wi-Fi networks via the Settings app (AutoProtect -> Authorized WiFi Networks).

It re-enables the passcode feature as soon as it detects your iPhone disconnects from the home Wi-Fi network.

AutoProtect is a nifty little jailbreak tweak and best part is, it’s available for free on Cydia. Download AutoProtect from Cydia and let us know what you think in the comments.
