    I'm new to IOS programming - please keep that in mind.

    I've come across several apps which perform some action when the wrong passcode is entered into the passcode screen. For example some apps take a photo and do something with it. What is the best way to work with the data entered into the passcode screen?

    Please note, that I am talking about the main passcode screen which the user has set themselves (not a custom passcode screen developed in the app).

    I will be very grateful if you can point me in the right direction.

    I assume you are talking about apps for Jailbroken phones? To the best of my knowledge there is no public API for this.
