Locktopus : Password Protect Your Individual iPhone Apps



If you want to share a cool game on your iOS device but not let everyone read your email, Locktopus offers a simple app-by-app lockdown solution.
Locktopus is a super simple application for jailbroken iOS devices. Install the app from the xsellize repository through Cydia, go to the system menu and set a password–more specifically, change the default from “password” to something a little more clever–and then tap and hold any application icon on your springboard screen as though you wanted to move or delete it. When the icons begin to vibrate and the little delete X appears in the upper corner you’ll have a new addition, as seen in the screenshot here, of a small lock icon. Tap the icon to lock the app. From that point forward every time someone attempts to launch the app they’ll have to enter the password.
It’s a great app for keeping your private stuff private–email, instant messages, medical apps–and for setting up a device for a child to use. You can lock down, for example, Safari, Settings, and YouTube to keep them from getting into trouble online but keep them easily accessible for the adult users.
how to install locktopus for free from cydia :
  • launch cydia

  • Once installation finishes, cydia will ask you for restart springboard.
how to use locktopus :


  • After respring when you access your springboard for the first time, you will be greeted with welcome message that, your default password is password and you can change in settings. This password will be used to unlock any locked application.
  • Once you have setup the Password and safety code, go back to iPhone home screen. Now press and hold any of the app until it shakes.      

  • Now you can lock / unlock any application you want, a Lock button will appear. By tapping that button your selected application will be locked and a little lock icon will appear next to that locked application.
  • Now if you and try to open the locked application (Mail app in this example), you will be prompted to enter the password to open it. Use your Locktopus password to open that App.
