Protect Your iPhone From Theft With No2Theft Cydia Tweak

Do you ever put your iPhone on charging at a public place or your work place while you are conversing with friends, family or colleagues? Even though you are engaged in that very conversation, what really engrosses your mind is the fear of not finding the device where you left it to charge. It does happen once in while where people end up losing their devices just because they left it unattended at a public place/gathering or work place only to charge the battery.

Users who have their Apple device jailbroken will now be less worried should an aforementioned situation arise. A new tweak named No2Theft promises to safeguard your iPhone from theft. However, the condition is that it should be put on charging. The user adds up to three trusted WiFi networks which if not connected to while charging, and the cable is pulled out, will raise a siren.

With the siren activated, the volume keys will be disabled and the owner will have to use his/her fingerprint or a custom pin in order to authenticate and deactivate the siren. Having said that, the siren can easily be deactivated if the device is turned off or a force shutdown is performed.

The tweak is hosted on the BigBoss repo and users will have to shed $0.99 to purchase it. It supports iOS 7, 8 and 9.
