With new Cydia tweak installed you can disable camera access on the iOS 10 Lock screen. If you have iPhone you should know that to quickly access your camera all you need to do is to swipe to the left on the Lock screen. Though, not all of us like this feature as the camera can be easily accessible to anybody who takes your device.Dubbed as NoLockScreenCam, this new jailbreak tweak fixes this problem by disabling access to the camera from the Lock screen.
You can also find the similar solutions on a stock device by enabling restrictions, but it’s a horrible workaround as it turns the camera off on a system-wide basis, which includes in app that uses the camera for any reason. Even though the NoLockScreenCam removes Lock screen camera shortcut you can still interact with all of your device’s camera-based features.
So if you don't want to waste your time look through the stock settings to disable camera access on the iOS 10 Lock screen just go to Cydia’s BigBoss repository and download NoLockScreenCam for free. Once you install the tweak there is no need to configure any options as the camera shortcut will be automatically disabled.
The concept to disable camera access on Lock screen isn’t new. This option comes as one of the multiple features in the recently-updated Springtomize 4 tweak, but you can spend no money and get this option for free installing NoLockScreenCam tweak.
It’s worth noting that if you have the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10, that is semi-untethered jailbreak. It means that someone could reboot your iPhone to access the camera as expected. Actually this is a problem of the modern jailbreak in general, but not particularly the tweak itself.
So if you want to protect your camera roll from kids or malicious friends so they can't take hundreds of pictures on your locked device then NoLockScreenCam is the best choice.
