How To Disable Most Swipe Gestures On The Lock Screen On iOS 9 iPhone

If you have jailbroken device you can disable most swipe gestures on the Lock screen in iOS 9 such as opening Control Center or Notification Center and even using the camera grabber to quickly take a picture. While some users like these little shortcuts, not other don't want them there all the time. New free Cydia release called NoLockGestures allows you to easily disable all the above-mentioned swipe gestures on demand.

Apple made it possible to disable Control Center or Notification Center on the Lock screen in iOS individually without this tweak and it even hides the grabbers from view, but there’s no official way of disabling the camera grabber.

So if you ever wanted to disable everything for a short period of time and then re-enable it again later, there are so many preferences you use in the Settings app to make it happen, it can be a really cumbersome process. NoLockGestures tweak offers user convenient way to toggle on or off all of the Lock screen shortcut gestures all at once on demand with a single toggle found tweak's preference pane.


The tweak can be useful in situation when you believe someone else is going to be handling your device and you don’t want them accessing the camera, Control Center, or Notification Center from the Lock screen. It makes it super easy to toggle back off when you are in full control of your device again.

When you toggle the tweak on or off, the results are immediate, so you don't need to respring your device after every settings change.

It’s worth noting the tweak doesn’t disable the slide to unlock gesture, so you can still swipe to the left to get to your passcode interface if you ever have to.

So if you have jailbroken iPhone running iOS 8 or 9 and you want to disable most swipe gestures on the Lock screen in iOS 9 head to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download NoLockGestures tweak for free of charge.
