Lockdown Pro — Password protect your applications –

Author: ipodtouchmaster  //  Category: Apps

Lockdown Pro is the best way to make sure your iPod or iPhone is secure when letting other people use it. If you have used Lockdown before then this is a huge upgrade. I completely remade the application, and made sure it works on the 3.x firmware and on iOS 4. It will run on any iPod or iPhone but not yet on the iPad, I will add that support in an update soon.

Now what sets Lockdown Pro apart from other locking applications is in all of the features included and pending updates with even more. Some of those features include:

*Lockdown Pro’s settings are now in your devices settings application! No more extra app filling up your home screen.

*You can choose between a numeric or an alphabetic password.

*Custom Passwords are available, which means that you can set different passwords for different locked applications.

*Delay Lock. This means that when you enter your password for an application then all of your applications will stay unlocked until your device is locked.

*You can lock every application. That means you can lock hidden applications, multi-tasked applications, or any in folders.

*Lockdown Pro is now faster. It takes up much less memory than Lockdown did.

*Stability improvements as well as new graphics and more!

Here are some screenshots:

Please post any questions/suggestions/bugs or email me at: Madpike05@aol.com

I have in the next planned update:

*Even better graphics.

*Better, faster way to lock applications directly from SpringBoard.

*Being able to lock complete folders.

    So no more working around the lock by just using the search feature etc.?
    That + “Delay Lock” is really worth 2 Bucks… will get it asap :)

  2. Boricuaguy34 Says:

    Great thank you

  3. john Says:

    it didnt worked on iphone 3gs iso4.0 it always crashes my springboard

  4. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    You sure you downloaded Lockdown Pro and not Lockdown?

  6. Anonymous Says:

    Great app as is! Just curiouser to know if in the near future we can lock folders? That would be awesome!!

  7. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    Yes! That will be in one of the next couple of updates.

  8. Andy G Says:

    It is a great app, but serious bug. If you launch a locked app from the multi-tasking dock, and then click cancel when it asks for your password, the app still launches!! I hope this gets fixed soon because otherwise it is a really useful app.

  9. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    Do you have version 1.1 of Lockdown Pro?

  10. Andy G Says:

    In Cydia right at the top it says “lockdown pro 1.1″, but when I scroll down to Installed Package, it says version 1.0. So, am not sure which one it is.

  11. Andy G Says:

    Sorry, I just noticed the upgrade available. Appologies. Will check it out and get back to you if the bug stays. Thanks

  12. Harry Says:

    Hello developers.
    I bought lockdown pro two days ago when I got my new iPhone 4. I was working awesome just before today when it crashed and never worked after that.
    What happened actually I was using a different password to lock the apps other than the master password. But when I tried using one more password for another set of apps, it never worked after that. Even no other app worked after that. Every single app on my iPhone failed to start until I started my iPhone in safe mode and uninstall the lockdown pro. I even tried installing it once again, but same thing happened again. So is thr any fix for this problem? Please help

  13. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    can you do me a favor and email me your com.iptm.lockdownpro.plist found in your device in /var/mobile/Library/Preferences and email it to Madpike05@aol.com

  14. B.Davis Says:

    so yea there’s a major security flaw like Andy stated and I noticed it the other day..click the app n it asks for ur passcode ..double click multitasking and the app shows up behind the passcode screen and simply click cancel and there you have it the app opens with no passcode..I have version 1.1 iPhone 4 update coming soon?

  15. ipodtouchmaster Says:

    Yes I am working on a fix.

  16. Mel Says:

    just purchased this and it crashes my SB everytime. nothing works. i can’t even launch phone to make a call.
    had to go into safe mode to remove lockdown pro 1.1 to get things working again.
    i’m using a 3GS on fw3.1.3

  17. Mel Says:

    it’s working now…. had to remove the lockdown 6.2 plists.

  18. Dave Says:

    I only want to lock a few applications and the only way I found to do this was to lock them all, then go to the Locked applications page and unlock all the others. Th flaw in this if you want to lock a further app. you need to lock them all again and go thru’ this unlocking the others process again.

    It would be an idea to have a + icon in the top right corner of the locked apps screen.

    Or am I missing a way to already do this?

    please ios4 auto shutdown for several of us users which we hope will be greatly appreciated

  21. Randy Says:

    I just download Lockdown Pro on my Iphone 3g It locked my phone completely I donot know what to do,or how to uninstall it.My phone does not open anything i mean i even cannot go to settings.need help.

  22. Anonymous Says:

    Had the same problem earlier. I had to put my phone into safe mode and after that I uninstalled lockdown pro. Phone works fine now but no lockdown app. On my phone I could still slide my finger across the top of the screen to get a drop down menu that has a power button on it push it and it’ll give you a safe mode option. You might be able to do this with the regular power button on the top but I’m not sure.good luck

    I got iphone 3gs 4.0 but for some reason my lockdown pro 1.1 isn’t working i do not see any icon for lockdown pro and after i install i cannot access any phone, messages and most of the apps… Could you tell me what is the problem?

  31. raghuveer Says:

    install iphone explorer

    Connect the phone go to /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries and delete the Lockdown files

    Restart your phone.
    its worked for me

  32. Ilre75 Says:

    I tried the same hint suggested by raughuveer and everything worked fine.

    Thanks very much!!!!

  33. David Says:

    I downloaded lockdown pro and now all my apps have crashed including my email, phone, sms !!! It does not open anything anymore ! What do i do ?????

  34. Robert Says:

    The lockdown pro is great! But I found a mojor bug..
    I have an ipod touch fw 3.1.3. If I run ann app locked that is in background, lockdown pro 1.1 ask me to put the password again( great change, btw!)but to disable lockdown all I need to do is rotate the ipod…! Hope that fix this!

  35. Jelly Says:

    My 3gs fw 3.1.3 crashes and can’t get to anything on the phone after upgrade to Lockdown PRO. How can I remove the lockdown 6.2 plists in this mode

  36. Nathan Says:

    Bought lockdown pro, respringed and suddenly I cant launch any apps, had to go into safety mode and remove Lockdown to get my phone working again, any fix?
    regards Nathan

  37. johan Says:

    hey i installed it and its not working, i open a app, and it freezes, click home button goes home, open cydia it freezes again till i did that how i fix it???

  38. XV Says:

    Lockdown wouldn’t save any settings and kept acting like I just installed it everytime I quit and reentered the app. I then installed Lockdown Pro and I have this non-stop crashing as soon as I get the springboard after an insanely long time staring at the apple logo. Anyone have any light on the subject? I can’t do anything with my phone atm. Don’t even have enough time to get sbs to safe mode

  39. cyberslash69 Says:

    Has Thebigboss figured out this bug yet??

  40. cyberslash69 Says:

    Also, you can remove it easily if you have SBSettings already installed.. Click on Power in Sbsettings. Click on Safe mode. Go into Cydia, click on manage>packages>Lockdownpro>modify>Remove

    Then just respring.. Hope this helps.

  41. guffy72 Says:

    I too have the same issue with Lockdown. I came here hoping Lockdown Pro would solve the problem. Don’t think I will be upgrading to Pro just yet :P

  42. Anon Says:

    This worked perfectly. Still too bad Lockdown Pro won’t work though, considering we all paid for it…

  43. nonamer Says:

    it also didn’t work on my 3gs/3.0. followed raghuveer’s advise and it works fine now. thanks!

    I just wish someone would FIX this issue.. I paid for junk!

  47. guffy72 Says:

    Thanks raghuveer.
    Tried this on Lockdown (not Pro) and it didn’t help.
    Lockdown still not storing any settings.

  48. jon14 Says:

    sucks i paid for this trash and it didnt even work!!!

  49. Kel Says:

    I use 3GS iOS 4.0 works flawless for me.

    Great App, my only request is to not allow backdoors into the apps, Lockdown had these features if I remember right, why not this app?

    Camera into Photo’s
    Phone into Contacts
    Search into Contacts

    I don’t want my phone app locked but I don’t want people going into my recent calls and contacts from in there, any way a feature to allow only this restriction?

    I understand if Phone to Contacts and search to contacts is not possible because of the way the phone app works, but it would be nice if that was possible.

  50. Anonymous Says:

    man how do u fix this problem? bc im pissed but i want this app

  51. Kalel Says:

    I think the more troubling issue is that there hasn’t even been an acknowledgment, by big boss, of the bug, where lockdown pro is preventing apps from loading, in two weeks .

  52. Travis Says:

    I downloaded the free version of Lock down for my Jailbroken Iphone 3GS running 4.0
    When I tried it today my phone:

    First it went into safe mode which it has never done.
    Second it came up with an error that said something to the effect that Spring Board wasn’t functioning properly.
    Thirdly when it asked me to set up a password and then re-enter but after I enter the Password
    I couldn’t click the enter button because it seemed to be in the background. When I would to tap the enter button
    it would think I was trying to enter the number 1 in the password because number 1 and enter were pretty much
    in the same location.

    At any rate I really like the idea of this program and was wondering if I downloaded a version that had bugs or if
    anyone else had experienced similar problems more importantly If there was a fix. i deleted the program and then
    looked for more info on the net. if you can help I would greatly appreciate it.

  53. Will Says:

    Ive installed Lockdown Pro and now cant get any apps to open and cant figure out how to get my iphone into safe mode to uninstall lockdown. I do not have SBSettings installed and its very frustrating. PLEASE HELP!!!

  54. j Says:

    I don’t know how to download new apps

  55. Kalel Says:

    The free version is no longer maintained from what I understand. That being said, the paid or “pro” version is not working on my iPhone 4 either. So take that as you like.

  56. Eda Says:


  57. Emily Says:

    Same has happened to mine too! All my apps will NOT open! This sucks so much!!! I need to use my phone!!I dont know how to use Safemode either, tried sliding my finger across the top but it doesnt work!! PLEASE HELP ASAP!!!!!

    Please release a fix for this.

  59. Samy Says:

    Yeah man thanks a lot !!!

  60. Canalla Says:

    I bought this app about 2 hours ago and it screwed my 3GS with 4.0…no apps worked. I followed the instruccion in comment #24 and was able to starts apps again.

    So I paid for this app…when is it going to work????

  61. Canalla Says:

    or is this a SCAM????

  62. Kalel Says:

    It’s not a scam, but it’s definitely broken. Nobody has heard from the developer as to whether or not he is planning to fix this.

    Maybe he feels he’s made enough money on this app and never plans to fix it. In this case, I guess it would be a scam.

  63. Kevin Williams Says:

    Another bricked device here. Stupidly assumed saurik would be striving for legitimacy on his app store: Lesson learned, never buy from cydia again. Now I get to do a device restore. Fucking wonderful.

  64. Kevin Williams Says:

    OK, for all other watchers, I think I got this resolved:

    1 – Download and install iphonebrowser (runs under Windows XP or better). N.B. you probably want version 1.9.1 — NOT the latest version — especially if you don’t have iTunes 9 or better.

    2 – Run iPhone browser, then navigate to the following path:

    + var
    + mobile
    + Library
    + Preferences

    3 – Now, look in the right hand pane for a file beginning with this:


    4 – Delete all files found matching this pattern. There should be only one. Make sure you let iPhoneBrowser make a backup of the file before you delete it (it will prompt you).

    5 – Finally, locate a file in the same folder called “LockdownDylibEnabled” and delete it as well.

    You should now be able to access applications normally — no need to reboot. Lockdown Pro shows up in the menu for me, and works correctly.

    VERY frustrating few hours this morning over this application, but it’s all sorted out now. My advice to bigboss: make sure the next releases of the application sweep away all old configuration files and disable Dylib!

  65. Mike Says:

    Would this be the Sam as sshing with a computer into the phone ?

  66. Kevin Williams Says:

    Mike, if you have an SSH server set up on your phone you can do that instead; much less software to install and faster, too.

    The reason I used this method is because I have not installed OpenSSH server on my phone, as will be the case with many other users. Since installing new software when the phone is essentially broken isn’t an option, it is nice to have a method to restore functionality to your device without having to do a full restore.

  67. Anonymous Says:

    Thanks!!!!!! it worked for me.

  68. Usb Says:

    Thanks to raghuveer @post 24 – I was able to get rid of this SHITTY Lockdown Pro app.

    NEVER BUY THIS SHITTY LOCKDOWN PRO APP. The developer does not even care about bugs and fixes.

  69. Bruno Says:


  70. RobL Says:

    The developer of this app should be banned. BigBoss should be held equally accountable for hosting such an person and “app”! I can’t even open my damn phone, apps or anything after loading this. My phone is essentially screwed!

  71. RobL Says:

    not to mention this “raghuveer” character cound’t be more vague if he/tried to be. “Connect the phone to “where or what”??!! And where the heck are we supposed to find /Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries and delete the Lockdown files??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

  72. Kevin Williams Says:

    RobL, did you read post 48?

  73. Daisy Says:

    I’m yet another user who paid for lockdown pro, using a 3gs 4.0.1 who, after installing it, couldn’t use her phone anymore. Couldn’t open anything…contacts, phone, cydia, settings…the icons are all there but whenever I click one on to open, it just hangs on loading.

    I tried syncing with iTunes 10, yes it does sync but then I can’t open anything anyway so what good does that do? Please help us on this because it’s virtually turned my iphone into a piece of junk.

    I just wanted something to prevent my kid from accidentally erasing apps when he plays his games there…and this is what happened.

    F*ck you Lockdown to the deepest pit of Hell where you rightfully belong. Free version stopped working, Pro screwed the device, scaring me seriously… until I found out how to remove it, all by myself, 5 minutes later 8-D (Thank God SBSettings worked, Safe Mode ftw)

  80. Joe Says:

    I’m having some problems with this. Do I need a certain version of itunes? Also, i cannot view my iPod on 1.91 but I can on 1.93. Mo matter what i use whether it’s diskaid or iphonebrowser I don’t have access to the root folders. I foolishly downloaded this crappy app without sbsettings or afc2add, so will this affect doing this? I’ve been trying to SSH into my iphone, but I can’t toggle SSH because I can’t load the app or go to settings to find my IP.

    Bug… if you want to lock out a browser like safari. The lock down works with multi tasking and when you click on the app direct. But if safari is locked and i click on any link in my mail inbox hit cancel then it bypasses the lock and im now in safari. Is this a flaw? Will this be fixed in an update?

  84. Prakash Says:

    Raghuveer, you are a fuckin’ genius man! Spent hours trying to boot my iPhone in the safe mode so that I can delete the stupid ‘LockdownPro’ which caused my iPhn to freeze, but nothing really worked except for your suggestion. Thanks again mate!!!

  85. sarjent Says:

    i was so looking forward to this app. Purchased without even trying it, my mistake!

    Iphone goes into an endless reboot cycle right after installing and rebooting. Tried some of the other suggestions posted but in Kevin’s solution those files just do not exist in that path on my phone.

    Any ideas? Its a 3g with IOS 4.1, JB with redsnow. Thanks

    Conflict with Irealsms. after opening an app that’s locked, try pressing the sleep button of your phone without clossing the app. Unlock your phone, you’re going to see a screen requiring you to input your pin to reopen the app you accessed before you placed your phone on sleep. tap cancel without typing your pin, viola! app still opens for some weird reason. Bug disappeared after I disabled Ireal in mobilesubstrate. I’m on iOS 4.2.1 by the way.

    I can lock folders everything works brilliant only this is the issue with the cancel button it will completely ignore the password. U can’t use multitasking to launch another app. Please fix or can somebody advise how to get rid of the cancel button as I believe this will solve the problem if you can’t enter the password or don’t know it then to quit the app we must press home button. This way surely u can’t just enter the app

All the fields are filled correctly and i tried every possiple thing to fix but with no luck. Here is what i tried:

    3) deleting the plist files using ssh
    4) deleting the app and every remnant files using ssh and then re-download it again

  121. Marc Says:

    Really wanted this to work as I’m fedup with deleting apps accidentally, however all lockdown pro does on 4.2.1 is respring every time I go into settings. This tweak is proof that cydia needs a refund and or a rating policy. I think all devs should be forced to offer a trial period so they can’t keep taking money for tweaks that just don’t work.
    I know cydia is unofficial but you’re just taking plain taking the piss out of people.

    I updated Cydia today and for the rest of the day had to struggle with cydia not loading anymore (only in Safe Mode did it load).
    After trying all kinds of SSH tricks to get it back the solution seemed simple – unlock it in Lockdown Pro… Noticed the same for MobileTerminal.

    Cydia not opening when locked and in SBS Dock
    MobileTerminal not opening when locked and in SBS Dock

    Also a request I’d like to make:
    I would be awesome if there was a way to unlock the Icon Placement Lock when the Icons are “wiggling”, by say touching the title bar and entering the password or something.

    I installed lockdown pro (2.0.1) on my iphone 4. It is working great(messages locked). BUT, i installed lockinfo and if i get a new message, tap on the text, ask the password, open the messange and immediately close the message app…
    2.0 worked fine

    I have an iPod touch the one with the camera and I am wondering if this cool app is compatible with iPod touches. Because I need to hide some stuff from my sister because I let her use my iPod.

    Lockdown Pro 2.0.2 is said to be compatible with the ipad but in Cydia i get a “Unable to Purchase”

    What’s wrong?

  132. Trabidor Says:

    If you put your iPod into DFU mode will it disable lockdown pro?

  133. Jc Says:


    I’ve been using the app After a hard reset of my iphone 4 on 4.3.2, lockdown pro stopped working. i tried to turn on and turn off my phone again then it got worse, i cannot lock anything anymore then when i went to settings and chose lockdown pro, it prompted me to setup as if it was the first time i installed it. I put in a safety word and password then clicked on save but it just goes back to Setup Lockdown Pro as if i didn’t put anything on it.

    Hello I noticed a bug that allows lockdown to be disabled without having to put in the passcode to change the settings … I went into the settings to disable lockdown and it came up with the passcode screen … however at the same time i recieved a text message and the notification came up to look at the text message … when i clicked close it disappeared and the passcode screen did not come up however i was still able to disable lockdown

    My iPhone is stuck in reboot loop, cannot be restored, cannot be fixed, when I meet the programmer of this fucking shitpile called LOCKDOWN PRO, by the way, there is NOTHING PRO about releasing SHIT that steals other people’s TIME, whe i meet this guy I am going to bust his balls with a sledgehammer he has never seen and make him eat the pulp of his teenage scrotum

    its not workin on iphone4 : MISSING ERROR: UMUST FILL OUT ALL THE TEXT FIELDS.. please help

  156. J@CK Says:

    It works fine on my iPhone 4, 4.3.3.

    But I experienced some bugs using the springboard fast lock.
    When I try to lock thing(s) using SpringBoard fast lock (i.e. tap and hold any icon until going into customization mode), it doesn’t really lock it until I do a respring. Then, this affect any apps that is being locked inside the setting.app lockdown pro settings. It won’t apply new settings/lock app until I do a respring!

    All become normal (lock instantly in setting.app, WITHOUT respring) when I disabled springboard fast lock.

    Lockdown Pro team: please fix this bug!!

  163. Tada Says:

    Stop fucking whining and do some reading, not working on ya phone, also fuck up your phone? WHY? Did you make sure it compatible with ya OS version, ur device, what source ya get it from, ect….? Don’t know much about shit? Too painful to take the consequent ? Don’t mess with the shit and start coming up here and open ya stinky mouth barking. Mine and other couple phones I have done work just fine without any problem. Kakakaka bitches…..don’t fuck with Cydia.

  164. NoneOfYoBuiswax Says:

    I really like this app, except I have one complaint.
    I decided to lock my Contacts, but if say someone were to use the Phone and then click on Contacts from there, it won’t ask for a password. Any update gonna’ come to fix that?

  165. ios5progress? Says:

    awesome app, had it for ages, updated to ios5 after restore, tethered JB, any update when this will be updated for ios5?

  166. dTERM Says:

    Yeah…wtb iOS 5 support…since its an app that I purchased :/

  167. abdulrahman Says:

    does lockdown pro works on ios 5 ???
    please advice
    its a great application

  168. Interested Says:

    Any news about new ver. for IOS5.
    this is the most wanted app on my IPAD.

  169. Z!G Says:

    No,………………….unfortunately Lockdown Pro does not work on iOS 5. I have not tried it myself, but google docs says it causes a respring loop. It seems to be the most updated list of iOS 5 compatible tweaks. Updated very often………………….Not 100% updated to but the most updated I seen.

  170. Z!G Says:

    I know. It’s an awesome tweak.. I tried emailing the Dev to no avail. OH well. I really hope he updates this. Search for it in cydia then tap on “change package settings” then turn on. This will inform you that it has been updated even tho it is not installed. Chances are if there is another update, it will be for iOS 5.

  171. Roffe Says:

    Hi! I use lockdown pro on my jb iphone 4. 4.3.3. and it works just as i want it to, except when i have an ongoing phonecall. If i try to open an app that is password protected when in a call, it opens without asking for the password. When i hang up the call, it then works as intended.

  172. Mr.A Says:

    i installedit and when i type the pass it says incorrect i cant get into cydia or settings what to do plz fast!

  173. NoneOfYoBuiswax Says:

    Can you please update for iOS 5, this is the only reason I haven’t updated yet! PLEASE!

  174. ylliricon Says:

  176. TB Says:

    I know there wasn’t much reason for a new version of Lockdown Pro prior to today. But with a full iOS5 JB now very close, I am looking forward to selling the virtues Lockdown Pro to my friends with new 4S devices :-) Any chance of an update? Even just with an approximate ETA? Or should I suggest they purchase alternative protection products instead?

  177. Valyno Says:

    I am among the happy users of LockDownPro.
    I sent an email to the dev (ipodtouchmaster)to ask whether a new release compatible with iOS5 is on the road: so far, no answer.

    I really hope that the Dev will not drop us down. I make a point of honor to purchase any app I need on my JB iPhone, so I hope that I will not regret it…
