Get iMessage Privacy Controls on Jailbroken iOS 8 iPhone

There are a lot of iOS 8 iMessage jailbreak tweaks on Cydia for iPhone users who ran TaiG / PP Jailbreak for iOS 8.3 and 8.4 firmware versions. If you are chatting and texting through iMessage application you might like to get special privacy controls for it. This can be achieved once you download and install one Cydia package.

Follow the guide below and you’ll be able to turn off the typing indicator that lets your recipient know that you are typing at the moment. This way no one will know when you are typing a message and responding to them [Apple has also secured iMessage with 2-step authentication however this feature is brand new and might have some issues].

iMessage Privacy Controls for iOS 8 Platform

Step 1. Launch Cydia store. You should search BigBoss repo to find SafeTexting addition that costs $1. Install it on your smartphone if you are already jailbroken.

Step 2. Find the new pane in your iOS 8 Settings [it belongs to Safe Texting].

Step 3. Through the pane you can enable / disable the tweak.

Step 4. It is possible to turn off / on the typing indicators for iMessage with jailbreak tweak through Settings.

Step 5. Besides you can choose if you wish your read receipts to be sent with the reply or when you ask for this.

Step 6. It is possible to delay messages you send.

Step 7. All these features can better protect your privacy because the text receipt will not know if you read his or her message and whether you are typing a reply or not.

What do you think about the tweak? Is it fun installing when you jailbreak the gadget or not?
