What is FakePass?
FakePass is a free tweak allowing you to protect your A10 and A11 jailbroken device running Palera1n on iOS 15 – iOS 16 or checkra1n on iOS 14 by enabling passcode. This tweak is useful especially for checkm8 devices that require to disable passcode in order to jailbreak.
After installation, FakePass tweak adds a new preference pane to the Settings app from where you can configure all option to your liking. There is an option to toggle the tweak on and off, set a new passcode, respring the device, and more. FakePass tweak works only in jailbreak state.
The tweak doesn't enable the native passcode, because when you restart the device and in result leave the jailbreak state your iPhone will be not protected. Every one will be able to unlock your device. FakePass giving you peace of mind that your A10 – A11 device is secure.
Info: It is currently not possible to jailbreak (with checkra1n or palera1n) any version of iOS 14 or iOS 15 on an iPhone or iPad with an A11 or A10 processor without disabling the passcode, Face ID, or Touch ID. This is because there is no SEP bypass available. However, it is possible that the Blackbird exploit may address this issue for A10 devices in the future.
FakePass provides a range of basic security options for your jailbroken A10 and A11 devices. In addition to setting a new passcode, FakePass allows you to lock the device after a respring, hide the passcode length, force alphanumeric input, and block the device after too many failed attempts. There is also an option to set a timeout to lock the screen after defined minutes.
These options give you greater control over the security of your device and can help prevent unauthorized access to your iPhone. FakePass was designed for Palera1n, but it works also with checkra1n Jailbreak. This is the only free solution to turn on passcode on A10 – A11.
