PasswordPilot Pro Auto Inserts Your Apple ID Password in iOS

 

Security has always been a huge issue in iOS. Anytime you want to purchase something in iTunes or the App Store, or even download something for free, you have to put in your Apple ID password. When installing updates from multiple accounts, you have to do this multiple times. Personally, I wish there was an option to just enter your password once, and stay logged into to all the services that use your Apple ID. If you jailbreak your device, you now have the option, with PasswordPilot Pro, to auto insert your Apple ID password.

This new tweak, now in Cydia, comes from developer FilippoBigga, creator of Springtomize. It allows you to have your Apple ID password automatically inserted, when using the App Store and other Apple ID services. You can manage your Apple IDs and passwords in the Settings app, and you can set up a master password, to protect all your Apple IDs.

PasswordPilot Pro is the ultimate solution to improve your user experience when you need to enter your AppleID password: everyone wants to keep their account secure, so we need a secure password when dealing with our account. At the same time though, it’s sometime a pain to type that long password, especially when we just want to try out a free app or we’re updating our existing apps.

It’s here that PasswordPilot Pro will dramatically help you: enter your account credentials, just once. The password is stored securely (using NSA-approved encryption standards) and PasswordPilot Pro will automatically detect which account you are using and insert the appropriate password, when you need it. You can also choose to enable it only for app updates, to prevent anyone from downloading new apps without your consent.

Settings can be protected using a master password, so you will be the only one being able to modify them.

PasswordPilot Pro supports multiple account and you don’t need to switch between them, as it will automatically detect which one you’re using.

It works basically anywhere your Apple ID account password is required: AppStore, iTunes Store, iBooks, Find My Friends and also in-App Purchases.

Configure options from Settings app

 

PasswordPilot Pro is now available in the Cydia Store for $1.99. For me, this convenience is worth the two bucks, but it may not be worth it for some of you. This is a feature I’ve been hoping Apple would add to iOS, so I purchased this tweak right away. Let us know what you think, in the comments below.

    Are there any guarantees that they don’t transport your password back to a server somewhere??

  • dudemaster

    I’d rather put in the password each time. I like the security.

    The first line of this article makes me shake my head.  “Security is a huge issue”?  Are you kidding me?  If we didn’t have to enter our passwords every time, you would be complaining that it would be too easy to buy things and rack up credit card bills.  It’s there for a reason, idiot.

    Why calling the writer “idiot” dear Mister? If you don’t like the post, just disagree with it. Maybe your mama used to call you “idiot” all the time, so its embedded in your head and just to make yourself feel better, you want to address someone else with it. What a shame!!

    Exactly. This has been out for YEARS. The only difference is the ability to add different accounts.

    I didn’t mean security was a bad thing. I suppose I worded that wrong. Why you feel the need to call me an idiot, is beyond me. If you can do better, go do it.

    Anyone know what that keyboard tweak he’s using is called?

  • http://www.iJailbreak.com Mike McKinnon

    I use ColorKeyboard, with the Phatbook Air theme.

    I use LastPass with a mobile PIN on it, and I have my apple ID in the “_” category, so it’s the first thing on the list in the app when I open it. Then I just use “copy password” and go back to the App Store and paste it in. WAY more secure than this!
