Cydia tweak: Fully Masked Passwords adds an extra layer of security to iOS

July 10, 2014

Fully Masked Passwords is a new jailbreak tweak that promises to add an extra layer of security to Apple’s mobile operating system.

As its name suggests, Fully Masked Passwords alters the iOS password input text field in order to hide characters as they’re typed in. Rather than revealing the last-typed character in your password, as in the below screenshot, the jailbreak tweak instead forces this input field to use a bullet for each and every character.

Usefully, Fully Masked Passwords doesn’t add a new preferences pane to the Settings app; instead, it should be activated immediately upon being downloaded on a jailbroken iPhone handset.

The last few days have brought a number of interesting jailbreak releases to the Cydia Store, including Acute, an update for Springtomize 3, StatusbarWeather7, Aslock, Interactive Message Notifications, and ColorfulVolume.

This burst of releases has perhaps been encouraged by Pangu, the iOS 7.1.x jailbreak solution that’s available to download for both Mac and PC. For more information on the Pangu jailbreak solution, click this link.

You can download Fully Masked Passwords free of charge on the Cydia Store, and it’s optimized for iOS 7.
