DisableLaunch is a free jailbreak tweak that adds a security element to your iPhone’s Home screen.

With the assistance of Activator, you can outright prevent apps from launching from your SpringBoard.

It’s not the most surefire security feature ever invented, but it can get the job done in a pinch…

From my testing it works fairly well, especially if you just want to keep children from launching apps. For more advanced users, workarounds can be found, such as launching Safari via Notification Center, etc.

Still, for a free tweak, DisableLaunch does a pretty good job of keeping your iPhone secure. If your device is jailbroken, you can snag it today on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.

    Cannot be used with Applocker, for those who wants double passwords.

  • I don’t get why anyone would need more than just the iPhone password. What kind of top secret government Area 51 info do you have on your phone?

    • My 2 year old daughter knowns how to unlock my iPhone (she’s memorised my pass code) & this would be so useful to keep her from actually opening apps.

    Would be usefull if you could make a whitelist.
    My 3 year old play with som apps, but I would preferre that she can’t launch anything else than the apps I specify.
    Like locking her i a certain folder would be usefull.
