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.

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.
