What is A-Shields tweak?

A-Shields is a free jailbreak tweak that protects iOS apps with Face or Touch ID (on older devices) technology preventing them from opening by not authorized users. After installing the tweak a dedicated preference pane is added to the Settings app where you can configure all options to your liking. Works also on iOS 13.5.

A-Shields Tweak

What's more, A-Shields tweak can protect not only installed applications but also Wi-Fi networks and Control Center items including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AirDrop, Cellular, AirPlane, and Hotspot. You can also set up a new passcode.

To set the next-level privacy on your iPhone select apps that should be locked with Touch or Face ID, and enable confirmation noise. Now, when you or someone else will try to open an app a Face ID or Touch ID (depending on device) prompt will appear. If the authentication will fail the app will not open.

From tweak settings, you can toggle on or off the tweak on demand, activate remember to unlock session, and also displays lock icon badge. Protect your contacts, photos, mail, notes, and other systems or user-installed apps.

A-Shields was optimized to work with both Touch ID and Face ID on iOS 13. Please note that A-Shields tweak is not compatible with earlier iOS versions. If you’re ready to try the tweak, then you can install and try A-Shields tweak.
