Alcohol forces you to connect with people. Most of the time, drunken calls or messages you send will make you shudder tomorrow morning. However, if you have an iPhone with jailbreak, you can prevent this potential embarrassment with a free tweak.
CydiaGeek's nifty tweak is called ConfirmToSend and offers a pop-up confirmation prompt for messages, mail, WhatsApp, and other messaging apps that you can use to make last-minute changes or give them up. The Tweak can also send you a warning when making a call through the phone app or FaceTime, and can be installed with either Cydia or Sileo ̵
Step 1: Install ConfirmToSend
. ConfirmToSend is already available in Cydia or Sileo. All you have to do is open one of the two apps and go to the search page. Search for "ConfirmToSend" and select it from the result list, then tap "Install" (Cydia) or "Get" (Sileo) and follow the instructions to proceed with the installation.
ConfirmToSend will go to iPhone does not automatically activate resprings, so you need to visit the settings page to enable optimization. Once you're in the program, you can enable optimization for all supported apps by selecting "Enable ConfirmToSend" above, or enabling optimization only for specific apps, such as Messaging, Email, Phone, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc. by: tap on the appropriate options.
Once you've made your selection, you do not have to restart your device to implement the changes. Simply exit the apps for which you enabled the feature to use the app toggle switch and reopen them.
When ConfirmToSend activates is, a confirmation prompt will now be displayed before you shoot an email or message or make a call. That said, the Tweak has some notable quirks that you need to keep in mind before you can fully rely on it.
While the confirmation prompt is displayed when you place a call using the Phone App's dialpad, calls are tapped by tapping a name or number in Favorites -, newest or contact pages of the app do not run the call. You must consider this limitation if you want to avoid accidental calls, as this optimization will not cause them to happen.
In addition, you can quickly reply to a message (iMessage, WhatsApp, etc.), or tapping an unanswered call in the Notification Center also does not trigger ConfirmToSend's confirmation prompt. So if you want the prompts to appear when chatting with important or trusted contacts, you must do so in the (supported) messaging app itself.
Hopefully, CydiaGeek will fix the above issues and support Add to other popular messaging apps like Facebook Messenger and Messenger Lite with future updates for Make ConfirmToSend even more useful. We will definitely post an update if anything changes. Stay up to date.
