Restriction Tweak Lets You Create Guest Accounts On iPhone And iPad

Restriction Tweak

Have you have wanted to have the ability to create guest user accounts on iPhone or iPad? Now with Restriction tweak you can.

One thing that is very much missing from iOS is a dedicated Guest Mode, in which you can create guest accounts for family and friends on iPhone or iPad just like you can on the Mac.

The absence of a guest mode using which you could hand over your device to a friend without worrying about them getting into your private apps or messages can be very useful for users. This feature would be even more useful on iPad than on the iPhone.

A newly released jailbreak tweak called Restriction brings the missing Guest Mode to jailbroken iOS and iPadOS. With this jailbreak tweak you can set up multiple guest accounts on your device. Each guest account can have different settings and ability to access certain parts of the device.

Once you have created multiple guest accounts on iPhone or iPad each guest can sign into his or her account by simply entering the right passcode. Restriction tweak will intelligently recognize which user is accessing the device and load up the appropriate guest account based on the passcode they have entered.

With Restriction tweak you can hide certain apps while only giving guest accounts access to specific apps. Apps that are restricted will simply be hidden from the home screen and become unaccessible.

You can also restrict if a guest account can access the Control Center, so they don’t mess up your settings without your permission. Similarly you can restrict Today View, Spotlight, app uninstallation and Siri for guest accounts.

Guest accounts can receive notifications however these notifications are limited to the app they are using. Apps that are restricted for a guest account will not send notification, which is great for privacy.

You can configure each guest account just the way you like by selecting a different wallpaper for each account. You can also set timer for guest accounts after which the device will automatically sign out from the account and ask for admin password.

You can download the Restriction tweak and create guest accounts on your device. The tweak is available under the Twickd repo at a price of $2.50. The tweak is compatible with iOS 12 all the way up to iOS 14.
