PasswordTime manages the blocking of your terminal

One of the fears of many users regarding their mobile phone or computer is that it could be lost, stolen or that its content could be accessed by anyone. To avoid such problems the basic rule is to protect access with a password . There are different possibilities and although pattern-based locks or sliders are more comfortable, having to enter the password makes our device more secure.

This, in turn, is undeniably a nuisance at certain times, something that can however be remedied thanks to the jailbreak and Cydia. Welcome to another installment of Tunenando iOS.

On this occasion we’re going to talk about a tweak called PasswordTime whose main function is to allow for a time that the user sets so that it’s not necessary to enter the code to access the functions of the device, just by sliding the bottom bar.

Its use does not present any difficulty since once installed we only have to go to the section corresponding to the application within the settings on our phone or tablet. We find a preference panel in which set the time during which we want the password unlocking option is disabled . This can be the case if, for example, you want to have the password unlocked every day during working hours, so that you don’t have to enter the password constantly.

For now the only problem is that does not support number-based passwords , perhaps the most widely used by iPhone and iPad owners, and only shows the text keyboard, a bug that the developer will have to fix in an update. PasswordTime is a free tweak that we can find in the already classic BigBoss repository, a utility that meets what it offers, saving a few precious seconds each time we are going to unlock our terminal.
