Typing WiFi passwords every now and then can be tiring. In turn, iPhone users opt to remember WiFi networks and their respective passwords. As you move from one location to another, your device will drop the weaker connection for a stronger one provided it remembers it. As the network switching takes place, you would want to know when your jailbroken iPhone connects to another network. Thankfully, you can utilize the WiJoin jailbreak tweak.
After installing the tweak, you will always be aware of the WiFi network your phone connects to. It will inform you through its minimalistic HUD pop up at the bottom half of the screen. The benefit of the pop up is that it does not get in the way of anything you will be doing on your screen. At the same time, the pop goes away just after a few seconds.
Reasons for installing the WiJoin jailbreak tweak
Up to this point, it is clear that the WiJoin jailbreak tweak will be handy in areas with multiple WiFi networks. Some of those areas include your work location, public recreational spaces, or when visiting a friend. Unlike on Android devices where you would get a notification immediately after they connect to another network, one needs to head over to Settings > WiFi on an iDevice.
Knowing the network that your device has connected to has various benefits. To start with, you could avoid accessing certain apps on your device with the less secure connections. With that information alone, you have boosted your security level.
Being a native feature on Android devices, Bruno Andrade must have got the inspiration from that. As a matter of fact, porting Android features into tweaks is a common thing among jailbreak tweak developers. The developer ensured the WiJoin jailbreak tweak works well on iOS 7, 8, and 9 devices.
If you cannot wait to try out the tweak, head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and download it for free.
