I really hope the next version of Lockdown Pro/Lite will support both TouchID and regular password

After installing and setting up, my 5s power consumption becomes excessive and the phone is hot even in standby.

PS: There's a new update to fix the heating problem.

BioProtect has a few loop holes btw just to let everyone know. the phone and messages app and email, basically everything that sends a notification can still be opened just click on the notification and it opens, or just click in the contact info and you can access all that from the contact without the touch id (like the messages app can still be opened) So it's not as secure as you would hope (another one is the photos can still be accessed from the camera app)

And also as stated before all you gotta do is ask Siri and she is ur little partner in crime. So all in all you still have to delete all those messages and nude pics of your gf before you go home to your wife

I fail to see the need. When I loan my phone is usually for something quick and w the 5S they have to ask me to open the phone. The really imp apps like bank ones asks for a password anyways already.
To me it would make things more cumbersome. Then again I'm not Carlos Danger nor have nothing to hide anyways ;)
