    I have no experience developing iOS apps, but I'd like to share an idea I had with the hope that someone will take it and run with it.

    I use the passcode lock on my iPhone (like most users should). However, I work out of my house, so I'm always having to enter a passcode to unlock it.

    It would be really helpful if a JB tweak could be developed that disabled the passcode feature whenever the device was connected to a specific (i.e. the home) WiFi network. I don't have any concerns about someone stealing my iPhone while at home. If the phone was out of the home WiFi range or connected to a different WiFi network (or off altogether), the passcode feature would be re-enabled. You could even extend this to a set of WiFi networks that you "trust" with having a disabled passcode (e.g. work, parents, etc).

    Thoughts? Is this possible? Perhaps there is a JP app that does this already.

    There is already one that does what your talking about, but I forgot what it was called.

    Agreed, that would be more useful than it automatically not asking for a passcode.

    Thanks. That was exactly what I was looking for.
