Touch ID has been a revelation for iPhone/iPad for quite some time. Released with iPhone 5S, it has provided the much needed security as well privacy that every users would crave to have. But, do you know that Touch ID has a lot to offer than just securely unlocking your device and making purchase from App Store, iTunes Store and iBooks Store?
There are certain apps and folders which you want to protect from being easily discovered by anyone. BioProtect is one of the Touch ID based Cydia tweaks that lets you protect your apps and folders on iPhone/iPad using Touch ID or Passcode in iOS 8. Here is more about it.
Plenty of Configuration Options
You can use this smart tweak to protect access to apps, folders, settings, Control Center items, flipswitches, SIM unlock, panes and more. It will hardly take a second or two to open them.
For more convenience, you can set a Passcode as an alternative option besides Touch ID if you wish. Or just keep only one of them. The device which doesn’t have the support of Touch ID will require only Passcode to be set.

The tweak is truly a masterpiece as it makes the entire process very simple. You don’t have to go through a lot of unnecessary steps to either configure it or open the protected apps.
