    Here's an interesting way to really personalize your iOS 7 Lock Screen.

    A new free jailbreak tweak called MathPass by iOS developer Phillip Tennen will make you solve a math problem to unlock your iOS device in place of having a passcode.

    This idea is perfect for those waking up in the morning that want to ensure they're fully awake before they start messing with their iOS devices.

    You will need to have a passcode enabled to use the tweak, but what the tweak will do is override the passcode, forcing you to solve a math problem instead. In the screenshot above, you can see that the tweak is asking us to solve four times six, so the passcode answer would be 0024.

    The tweak adds a preferences pane to the Settings application (LibPasscode) that you will need to put your true passcode into in order for the tweak to work correctly:



    Once you enter your true passcode, you will be asked to respring. Once you respring, you will be asked to enter your true passcode one last time. The next time you lock your iOS device, you will be asked a math problem to solve. Notably, this isn't the best form of security, so you shouldn't use this tweak is security is your main concern.

    If you would like to give MathPass a try, it's available for free in Cydia's BigBoss repostiory. The tweak requires iOS 7 to be installed and works with iPads as well as iPhones and iPod touches.

    Name: MathPass
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Requirements: iOS 7.0-7.0.6
    Tested on: iPhone 5 running iOS 7.0.6

    Thought the same thing but the developer said it wasn't made for security, it's for parents wanting to teach their children

    Yeah, this isn't for security.

    If anything, it's for entertainment.

    How about a tweak that makes you get through the 4th level of flappy bird before letting you use the phone?

    I'm pretty sure this was made to prevent drunk texting.

    If you child is at the basic math level, they are likely in 3rd or 4th grade. I tend to wonder if they need an iPhone.
