Ever wish there was a quick and easy way to prevent your iPhone’s photos from being accidentally purged?
Apple kind of skimped on the data protection elements of iOS; there’s no native way to prevent someone from going into your camera roll, and deleting all of your photographs if they have access to your iPhone.
Again, the Cydia store comes to the rescue as another jailbreak tweak entitled Photector pops up on the scene to save the day…
Photector is a simple tweak that focuses solely on protecting your photos. You’re not going to find a lot of bells and whistles here, but what you do find is relevant and does the job well.
Photector uses two methods of protecting your photos; the first method is to eliminate the ability to use the delete function, and the second method is to require a password.
Unfortunately, there’s nothing natively in place to prevent any user from simply venturing into settings and disabling the tweak altogether.
I guess if you’re using this type of protection, your suspects are likely your 5 year old children and not some malicious hacker; in that case Photector should do the job.
If your iPhone is jailbroken, you can download Photector for free via the Cydia store.
