How to password protect iPhone / iPad / iPod touch apps? Well, as the evolution of Smartphones has panned out, the fact that a huge amount of our personal information is now stored within our Smartphones cannot be refuted. And most of this information can be considered as sensitive in nature. Most of today’s Smartphone’s have a standard passcode lock feature available for users to secure their data and limit the amount of people who are capable to access that information. But that leaves a lot to be desired and one feels the need of a security feature that a user can customize for a more personalized experience.
DisableLaunch is a great new security jailbreak tweak that lets you add an extra layer of security on your iDevice. So even if someone gets access to your passcode, they won’t be able to launch any of your apps because they have been blocked by DisableLaunch.
If you are running on the latest iOS 5 on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, DisableLaunch will essentially protect your emails, social networking accounts and other personal information by restricting access to the applications. What’s great about DisableLaunch is that it not only lets you set a traditional passcode lock specially for your Apps, but it also lets you set customized gestures that can serve as locks, that means that only you would know the combination that would unlock access to your apps.
When DisableLaunch is installed, it does not add an icon on your Springboard, but instead all the settings of DisableLaunch are accessed from the stock Apple Settings app. If you are one of those people who have siblings that keep messing with your iPhone, then this is a great way to protect your data by adding another layer of restriction on your iPhone. DisableLaunch is available for free and you can download it from the BigBoss repository on Cydia.
