Checkl0ck enables passcode and biometric on iOS 15

Checkl0ck

When you jailbreak your device with Palera1n or checkra1n on A10 and A11 SoC, you must disable your passcode, Face ID, or Touch ID while in the jailbroken state. This can be an issue because everyone in your home can get immediately access to your device.

Add Checkl0ck Repo to your package manager.

What is Checkl0ck?

Checkl0ck is a tweak that allows to protect your checkm8 device with passcode and biometric capabilities after jailbreaking an A10 or A11 iPhone. It supports checkra1n jailbreak on iOS 14, and palera1n jailbreak on iOS 15. What's important, the tweak works only in jailbreak state.

After installation, Checkl0ck adds a dedicated preference pane to the Settings app from where you can toggle the tweak on and off. Everything is automated, and no other options for configuration are available. iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7+ are supported.

FoxfortMobile is a talented developer, and the author of many popular jailbreak tweaks. Checkl0ck was created to provide a level of security for older iDevices that can be only jailbroken when disabling the passcode, Face ID, or Touch ID feature on iOS 14 and iOS 15.

Two iPhone screens showing Checkl0ck preferences and Touch ID enabled on Palera1n iOS 15 jailbreak.

Checkl0ck tweak features an option to set native passcode. It supports both numeric and alphanumeric passwords. Once enabled, you can also unlock your device with Face ID or Touch ID, autofill passwords in Safari and supported apps using Face ID and Touch ID.

The tweak automatically detects what kind of protection can be enabled depending on your device model and whether existing biometric data was found. Depending on your iPhone model the Checkl0ck's configuration page will offer different setup instructions.

Info: You can't jailbreak any version of iOS 14 and iOS 15 on an A11 or A10 equipped iPhone or iPad without disabling passcode, Face ID, or Touch ID, due to the lack of an SEP bypass. Blackbird exploit may fix this issue in future for A10 devices.

Checkl0ck allows you to use Face ID or Touch ID for biometric authentication in 3rd party apps. This feature may not work in certain apps with extreme level of security such as bank apps. It also supports sign in with Apple using Face ID/Touch ID, and viewing protected notes.

On top of that, Checkl0ck is compatible with tweaks that use biometric authentication feature via LAContext api (for example: FaceIDforHiddenPhotos, SafariPlus, A-Shields),and install free apps from App Store using Face ID/Touch ID. Apple Pay purchases are not and will not be supported because that requires SEP for processing and verification of transactions.

When Checkl0ck is enabled it will also hide notifications text when device is locked. This way no one can take a glance on the Lock Screen to view latest notifications.

Checkl0ck is the best solution to enable passcode and biometric on iPhones with installed Palera1n on iOS 15.0 – iOS 15.7.1 or checkra1n on iOS 14 – iOS 14.7.1 jailbreaks. It provides you with a sense of security, but after restarting the device obviously it will stop working.
