While most people use Face ID or Touch ID to unlock their modern iPhones and iPads, there are still times when you’ll be required to enter your passcode. Examples include after rebooting your device, after pressing and holding certain buttons on your device, failing a biometric authentication attempt, and when you don’t have biometrics set up on your device.
If your ears perk up when we mention making your jailbroken handset’s passcode entry interface more interesting, then follow along in today’s roundup as we discuss what we believe are some of the best jailbreak tweaks for enhancing he passcode entry interface on pwned iOS & iPadOS 14 devices.
Some of the best passcode jailbreak tweaks for iOS 14
PinAnim – FREE
For those who like a little flashy goodness when using their device, and by that we mean slick animations, PinAnim is a great new jailbreak tweak that provides a pleasing animation when entering digits via the passcode interface.
When you use PinAnim, the passcode dots on the Lock Screen will appear to hop as you enter digits via the passcode keys. It’s a small, but aesthetically pleasing animation that’s sure to brighten your mood any day of the week.
You can learn more about PinAnim and how it works in our full review post.
NoPassAfterRespring (Safe) – FREE
It’s kind of annoying how we always have to enter our passcode after respringing our iPhone or iPad, especially since it’s a requirement after installing most jailbreak tweaks.
Fortunately, the NoPassAfterRespring (Safe) jailbreak tweak can prevent your device from asking you for your passcode after a respring, which can help you get right into using your device again more quickly.

Checkl0ck – $2.99
Checkl0ck is perhaps one of my favorite jailbreak tweaks as an iPhone X user with the checkra1n jailbreak, and that’s because it enables native passcode and Face ID authentication capabilities while the handset is in a jailbroken state.
With it, you can feel just a little more secure in your belongings as you can keep your data behind some kind of a barrier. This is despite the fact that the iPhone X normally wouldn’t have any security mechanisms on iOS 14 due to software complications that the checkra1n team hasn’t been able to work around as of yet.

IntelligentPass 4 – $2.99
If you’re one of those lazy people out there who thinks they shouldn’t have to enter their passcode in certain situations, such as when you’re at home with no risk of someone trying to bust into your iPhone, then I’m right there with you. But you really might want to look into a jailbreak tweak called IntelligentPass 4.
With this tweak, your device can intelligently disable the passcode system under certain circumstances, such as when you’re connected to a specific Wi-Fi network, during certain times of the day, and a plethora of other conditions that may help your device identify when it isn’t at risk of being intercepted by prying eyes.

Hive Reborn – FREE
If it’s some kind of new aesthetics you’re after, then you might find refuge in the Hive Reborn jailbreak tweak, which completely redesigns the Lock Screen’s passcode entry interface with something uniquely hive-like.
Upon installing this tweak, you will have a hive-inspired passcode entry interface in which you tap on individual hive-shaped hexagonal buttons to enter your passcode. Apart from that, unlocking your device looks and feels exactly the same.

ToldYou – FREE
Think there’s someone in your household that might be trying to guess your passcode when you aren’t looking? If so, then a free jailbreak tweak called ToldYou might be a good way to get them to stop.
This simple jailbreak tweak messes with their psyche by displaying a message to let them know that you’re into them any time they enter your passcode incorrectly. When they see that message, they’re likely to put your phone down faster than a hot potato with no other hands to toss it to.

RomanPad – FREE
For those who feel fancier than the rest of us, RomanPad is a free jailbreak tweak that simply replaces the numbers on the Lock Screen’s passcode entry keys with Roman numerals instead.
The tweak is purely aesthetic and has no effect on the actual passcode entry experience.
You can learn more about RomanPad in our full review post.
WinPass – $1.49
If you’re nostalgic about the Windows XP user interface, then you can use the WinPass jailbreak tweak to get a Windows XP-inspired passcode entry interface on your jailbroken iOS 14 device.
What’s cool about this tweak is it’s sure to confuse passerby, as it definitely doesn’t look iOS-like.
