No Passcode LockOut prevents your device from temporarily locking from wrong passcodes

When you enter too many wrong passcodes on iPhone, you’ll be locked out of the device for a specific period of time. It increases gradually as you enter more wrong passcodes. Indeed, this is a good form of security but it can be annoying in situations when your device ends up in your friend’s hands who’ll want to tease you.

If you ever wanted to get rid of this feature, you should probably check out a cydia tweak known as No Passcode LockOut.  It will save your day by disabling this annoying security precaution.

After installing it, no matter how many times you enter the passcode wrong, you’ll never be locked out. Read More...
