    Cydia has all these passcode lock apps for the App Store Apps but I can't seem to find one that will actually put a lock on Cydia!! Since jailbreaking is said to be so unsafe wouldn't it be a GOOD idea for Cydia to be able to have a passcode lock so a hacker can't get into Cydia and get ALL of your information?? If there is one please let me know of it and if there is a way to keep hackers out of Cydia please let me know. I want my jailbroken IPhone 6 to be much more secure than it is by itself with iOS 8.4. Can anybody tell me if that is possible and what I need to do and download? All I ever hear is how unsafe it is to jailbreak but with all those apps to secure the phone and what not I don't understand why that is so...can someone please tell me these people are liars and that there are ways to secure your phone from even the biggest hacker, government, computer genius by using Cydia apps???

    You appear to have several issues going on here so I'm just going to answer the one about a lock on Cydia.

    As for the rest of your questions I will simply say that a jailbroken iPhone is no more or less secure than a stock iPhone as long as you yourself are not compromising your security by engaging in things that do compromise your security.

    No one on Earth can guarantee you that your phone will be secure "from even the biggest hacker, government, computer genius by using Cydia apps"

    Other than lockdown pro can you really just get into mobile terminal and go nutts by changing your root, re-adding Apples restrictions, installing malware and spyware protection and whatever else? Is this the ONLY app that protects you against spy's, government, computer genuises or whoever! Also how much can using a VPN help against protection from hackers. I know somebody knows a way to make a jailbroken phone far more secure than a stock iPhone there's just too many apps? And I forgot to ask does lockdown pro iOS hide Cydia?

    Yes, what you should do is plug it to iTunes and hit restore. Cydia will disappear.
    And just stay stock to avoid cydia hackers from stealing your info.

    So this lockdown pro iOS 8+ will passcode or fingerprint the Cydia app as well? How much does it cost and what other security apps do you think I would need to fully protect my phone better then the iOS 8 alone??? There just has to be some kind of way?? And what does changing the root password actually do and how can it protect you from certain hackers? What else can I do

    I didn't know that bioprotect locked the Cydia app as well? I think I had Iprotect and it wouldn't.

    There has to be some kind of way to block the majority of hackers out of your jailbreaken phone there just HAS to be, maybe you just don't have that kind of knowledge do you agree?

    I think you don't have the knowledge and just assuming falsely.
    Cydia JB devs cannot access your device unless you install some questionable malicious jb hack. Also password protecting your cydia icon will do absolutely nothing to stop hackers. All it will do is stop people that have physical access to your device to open up cydia. That's all.
    You seem to have some kind of unrealistic phobia about hackers or government agencies getting into your phone. Why and for what would they do that? And when it comes to government agencies there's very little anyone can do to stop them. If they really want they can access all your info, phone records, calls, texts, emails etc..
    searching for ways to hide things can raise red flags and put you under more scrutiny for surveillance.

    Amen Applejuiced. All the OP is doing is starting multiple threads all covering the same topic: blocking hypothetical "Cydia hackers" from stealing whatever information that he cares so much about.

    Perhaps a few examples (links) of the types of hacking you're concerned about would help others here give you specific ideas on how to protect yourself.

    Judging by your questions you clearly dont have much knowledge on the topic.

    Most cases to access your iDevice would require the hacker to physically have the iDevice in person and plugged into a computer via series of hardwired cables and PCB etc, in this instance you would certainly know about it.

    Other possible methods for hackers to hack the iDevice is via secured shell (SSH) whereby a hacker "could" hack your iDevice should you forget to change the "alpine" password if the iDevice has OpenSSH installed, in this instance you probably wouldn't know about it.

    If unsure or in doubt, probably best to avoid jailbreaking until you have conducted your researches!

    Curious, how do you know if your laptop / desktop hasn't already been hacked?

    Correct.
    But he would have to connect to the hackers wifi network in order to get access to his device.
