    Guys, I just used Facebook & Paypal to purchase a couple of tweaks from Cydia. But my concern is that after my first purchase I was not asked for a password or anything for my second purchase. Is there a way to setup Cydia so that a password is required on every purchase?

    No. Not now.

    It changed a few months back. You used to have to do this. But now, once you link your Paypal account to your Cydia account there is no more asking for your password.

    Last year activating 2 factor authentication in Paypal caused it to not pass through cydia. Don't know if that would work nowadays for you.

    Before you do that: did you try to unlink cydia in Paypal website as preauthorizatikn. Look for ‪SaurikIT on it or similar.

    Is there a way to find out what account I used to link to cydia to make a purchase? I'm trying to get the same app I paid for on several other iPhones and put it on another phone. But when I go to some of my other iPhones. It brings up accounts but when I log in to them it says none have any purchases linked to them.
