Ok I have a iPhone and I would like to know if there a way to restrict access, via a password, to any application installed on the device?

For example: if I wanted to access a specific game or the Contacts application I would need to enter a password beyond what I had to enter to unlock the phone itself.


Unfortuantly, at the moment, that can't happen with an unmodified device. However, if you are jailbroken, here's a list of jailbreak tweaks that could work (most are not free sadly):

  • Lockdown pro: comes in lite versions and pro versions. Pro version comes with SBSettings toggle and is $4.99 ($2.99 on iPad)
  • iProtect: Free trial, becomes $8.99 after trial ends
  • AppLocker: $0.99
  • FolderLock: $1.59
