This Upcoming Tweak Lets You Unlock Your Mac Using Touch ID [Video]

Since iOS 7 untethered jailbreak is here, we've seen a few awesome tweaks that supports and focuses on Apple's iPhone 5s Touch ID, for example there is a tweak we've already reviewed called BioProtect, it is a tweak that protects your apps using your Touch ID and today I will be glad to review this upcoming tweak called BioUnlock, this tweak lets you unlock your Mac using Touch ID.. Awesome right ?

Developed by French Developer Eric Castro came up with yet another brilliant idea to take advantage of Touch ID, but this time, the tweak is not used to directly interact with your iPhone, but rather with your Mac…

Check out the tweak in action:

As you can see in the video above, BioUnlock jailbreak tweak gives you the ability to unlock your Mac using your iPhone's Touch ID. Somewhat  similar to the Knock app.

Eric told us that the tweak is still in progress, and much still needs to be done, according to the developer. Eric hopes to be able to create a simple pairing tool and UI for the Mac and for the tweak itself. He also notes in a Reddit post that the tool will be Mac only at first, and Windows support will come later. 

So soon both Windows and Mac users can enjoy such feature... 

The public ETA release for the tweak said to be the end of January. We’ll make sure to go hands on (or maybe I should say fingers on) with BioUnlock once it is available in Cydia.

What do you think guys ?
