What is Arch tweak?

Arch tweak is a free jailbreak tool to prevent iOS apps from opening by not authorized users. Using the built-in Face or Touch ID (on older devices) technology makes the tweak a reliable solution to protect any apps from opening. After installing Arch tweak a new preference pane will be added to the Settings app.

Arch tweak for iOS

From here there are not too many options to choose from. Simply 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. By default, the Settings are protected so no one can change them.

@Machport developed a simple but powerful jailbreak tweak to add an extra layer of security to your iPhone. Protect contacts, photos, calendars, and other systems or users installed applications. Set the next-level privacy on your iPhone.

The tweak was fully-optimized to work with both Touch ID and Face ID on iOS 13. Please note that Arch tweak is not compatible with earlier iOS versions. If you’re ready to try the tweak, then you can download Arch tweak from Packix repo.

Arch tweak works on both unc0ver and checkra1n jailbreak tools running on iOS 13. What do you think about Arch? Share your opinion in the comments section.
