TimeCode tweak lets you use your device’s current time as a passcode


TimeCode is an interesting jailbreak tweak, that lets you use your device’s current time as a passcode to unlock your device. TimeCode allows users to have a dynamic passcode on their iOS devices, which means the passcode to open your iPhone or iPad changes every time you unlock the device. TimeCode uses the current time and sets it as your passcode. So if it is 11:30 at the moment you are unlocking your device then your passcode will be 1130, if its 23:30 then the passcode would be 2330 and so on. Using TimeCode can make your device much more secure then having a single passcode. Of course this tweak is only effective until no one else knows you are using it, otherwise anyone can unlock the device by entering the current time.

Timecode was created at the request of users of the Reddit forum. The programmer implemented the idea as an add-on from Cydia. Instead of a static four-digit code prompted to enter four digits displayed on the clock of the mobile device.

Thus, the password on the iPhone and iPad will be different each time you unlock, depending on the current time. For example, if the clock shows 14:51, the password will be “1-4-5-1”, and if it is 08:22, – “0-8-2-2”.

In the Timecode settings you can enable “reverse password” (Reverse Passcode). In this case, to enter the numbers you need in the opposite direction: if the clock 13:54, the code combination will be 4-5-3-1. You can install additional protection by adding 10 minutes to the current time.


A great feature of this tweak allows users to set an offset number. If the offset option is enabled from tweak’s settings page then the tweak will take the current time, add the offset number to it and make it your passcode. For example, if current time is 10:30 and you have entered 10 as your offset, then the passcode would be 10:40.

After installing the tweak from Cydia you have to enable it from Settings and enter your system passcode in ‘Passcode’ field. Also, needless to say that the passcode should be enabled on your device before you can use TimeCode on it.

You can download TimeCode tweak from Cydia for free. It is available through the BigBoss repository.
