Callisto lets you use the current time as a passcode on your iOS 9 device

Passcode is most essential thing to secure your device. With iOS 9, Apple introduced the 6-digit Passcode for more security of your device. Since then jailbreakers are trying more modification with the default passcode of the iPhone.



A jailbreak tweak called Callisto is now available in Cydia’s BigBoss repository for $1.49 that lets you use the current time for a passcode instead of something you set for yourself. Callisto is a tweak that lets you use the current time as a passcode on your device.

Callisto comes in to the rescue for anyone who loved this tweak because it not only supports iOS 9, but it also comes with features to work around your six-digit passcode such that you don’t have to downgrade to a four-digit passcode to enjoy the tweak.

Callisto works on all iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads running iOS 8 or iOS 9, and it’ll let you use a relatively liked method of keeping your device safe. In a way, this tweak is similar to keeping yourself from getting locked out of your house by keeping a key under the front mat.

After you install Callisto, it’ll automatically detect your passcode when you enter it for the first time. From then on, you can start using the time to unlock your device instead. For example, if it’s 5:06 PM, you’ll enter 0506 as the passcode.

Configuring Callisto
Callisto will add a preferences pane to the Settings app. From here, you’ll find a number of options you can configure to make your passcode input easier for you:


Here, you can enable or disable the Callisto tweak at any time that you wish. You’ll also find some options you can change to your liking based on whether you’re using a 4-digit or 6-digit passcode.

4-digit passcode
If you’re using a 4-digit passcode, you can leave the 6-digit passcode settings alone. You’ll get the following options from the 4-digit passcode preferences pane:
  • Reversing your passcode
  • Using your real passcode instead of the time
  • Choosing a time offset for when you use the time for your passcode
6-digit passcode
If you’re using a 6-digit passcode, you can leave the 4-digit passcode settings alone. You can configure the following options from the 6-digit passcode preferences pane:
  • Reversing your passcode
  • Using your real passcode instead of the time
  • Choosing a time offset
Configuring magic digitsThe first three options work the same way as those in the 4-digit passcode section, but the magic digits feature is one that is unique to the 6-digit passcode section.

With Magic digits, you can:
  • Make the last two digits of your passcode “00” after the time
  • Choose a custom last two digits of your passcode after the time
  • Adds the minute and dour double digits together to create double digits after the time
Callisto, which can be had on any jailbroken iOS 8 or iOS 9 device from Cydia’s BigBoss repository, is just $1.49 and provides a unique way to have a revolving passcode. I personally like the idea because your passcode is hidden in plain sight, and people are generally too oblivious to notice.
