One of the biggest issues that comes associated with the new generation of smartphones including iPhone is the privacy. This stems from the fact it is a “smartphone”, and you can do a lot more with it than your typical mobile phone functionality. This implies that many of you also have sensitive data stored on the phone, including personal information, adult content or some other stuff that you don’t want to share with someone that happens to pick your phone maybe to just to make a quick phone call. Unfortunately, there is no built-in iOS functionality provided by the Apple to tackle these privacy concerns (not even in iOS 5!).
However, if you are lucky to be jailbroken on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad you can use a very nice and practical application called FolderLock that basically allows to password protect folders, setting app, multi-tasking bar and so on. Putting a password on the settings.app is in particular necessary so that no one can go to the setting and change the password for the FolderLock! No icons are added to your home screen. Tweak’s options are configured from Settings.app. From the settings you can choose which apps to be locked by the application.
This application can be installed from Cydia for $1.59. Of course, you will need to jailbreak you iDevice first to use this.
