How can I lock program in iPhone?


Hello Dear,

I had also faced this problem. There is a software "Lockdown” which will help you to lock your program in  iPhone. Let me give you a small introduction of Lock Down. It is an awesome “cyndia” application which allows you to lock your every application and we can also use it for “iPod touch”. Now it’s turn to install this software. You can easily install this software by following some steps which are given below.

First of all you need to jailbreak your iPhone.

After the jailbreak iPhone you will get “cyndia” icon on your spring board then launch the cyndia after that go to search and type Lockdown and tap it.

You will see the install button on the top right and tap it then confirm button on the top right to begin installation.
The last step is to go back on your springboard and you will see“Lockdown” icon.

Check this website; it has very good instructions and another way of installation.

Hope this will help you.

There are different ways to lock apps on your iPhone. One is with the help of Touch ID. You can use the Touch ID feature of your iPhone to lock certain apps from getting accessed. But first, you have to enable Touch ID on your phone before you can use it as a lock tool.

To turn on or activate Touch ID, on your iPhone, go to “Settings” then select “Touch ID & Passcode”. Next, type your password to continue. After this, turn on Touch ID for any or all of the following:

  • iPhone Unlock
  • Apple Pay (this option is for iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and higher)
  • iTunes & App Store

If this is your first time to set up Touch ID, follow the instructions on your screen to enroll fingerprints. Once Touch ID is turned on, you may now use it to activate Touch ID for apps. The ability to turn on Touch ID on apps will most likely be found in the app’s settings.

So, to enable Touch ID on an app, first, launch the app then go to “Settings”. In the “Settings” screen, look for “Passcode & Touch ID” or something similar then tap it. On the next screen, turn on “Passcode” and select or enter a passcode. Once passcode is setup, turn on “Touch ID” then re-enter your passcode to continue. And that’s it.

Just place your thumb or whatever finger you enrolled in Touch ID on the Home button to use Touch ID.
