SMS Censor is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to censor certain words when using your iPhone’s default Messages app.

Its purpose is to prevent messages from being sent altogether if it detects a censored string residing in the body of your text message.

I’m not exactly sure who would want to use this, or how it would be used, but I’d imagine it would be a scenario where a parent is censoring or monitoring their child’s text messaging habits.

Unfortunately, if the child is smart enough to jailbreak the device in the first place, they’re definitely smart enough to find one of the many ways to work around a restriction such as this…

SMS Censor also includes a handy provision to confirm before text messages are actually sent out. That’s a good remedy for those of you who suffer from chronic foot in mouth syndrome.

Keep in mind that you will need to be using the default Messages app, as it’s not compatible with other apps like biteSMS.

If you want to join the party, SMS Censor will set you back a modest $0.99 on the Cydia store. Of course you will need a jailbroken iPhone in order to purchase.

    Lame, who’s has a jailbroken iPhone and still uses the default SMS app?
    Not me

    • Exactly. I have no use for this tweak anyway but it bothers me how many tweaks come out that don’t have support for biteSMS

      @Rob, I still use my iPhone’s normal SMS app. I only have my jailbreak for SBSettings.

    Sorry…. a completely useless tweak…

    Does it have security to stop kids from disabling it? Good idea but I think it needs work still
