Add Multiple User Accounts To Your iPad With The FREE iUsers Cydia Tweak!

Have you ever been stuck sharing your iPad with other family members/friends and gotten annoyed when they have changed your iPad’s settings? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could make your iPad more like a desktop computer in the fact that you could set different user accounts?

Introducing the FREE iUsers Cydia tweak. iUsers was created with one purpose in mind – to bring user accounts to the iPad. Meaning you have the ability to customize what certain users can access while on your iPad. Each user can be customized to have a different home screens, settings and restrictive access to apps (which will be protected by a passcode).

In short. Basically what will happen when the iUsers tweak is installed on your iPad is when you turn it on. You will come to a screen with the users you have created (just like on the Windows/Mac OS X operating systems). Upon clicking on the user you wish to use you will have to enter a passcode (if set) and then you will gain access to that account.

For a better understanding of the iUsers Cydia tweak take a look at the official YouTube video below:

If you have an iPad the iUsers tweak is definitely something I would check out. Especially because it is available for FREE. All you will need to do is add the developers repository in Cydia (Manage > Sources > Edit > Add):

Let us know what you think of the iUsers tweak in the comments section below.

Update #1: The iUsers Cydia tweak is NOT compatible with the iOS 5+ firmware. Users may experience SpringBoard crashes and may be forced to restore their iOS device.

    I’ve found that it does not keep them COMPLETELY separate which would be awesome.  I have a work iPad and would love one side to be my work iTunes account and the other be my personal so i can have separate apps and all that.  It seems apps i install on one side still show up on the other which is what I don’t want.  I’ve tried deleting, but it deletes on both sides.  Overall though… amazing and look forward to the future features and expansion of this!

    iOS 5.01- if I delete on the guest iuser will it delete from my main account?

  • Josh North

    Appears to be broken on 5.0.1…
    Issues:
    1.  Passcodes don’t work.  Try to create a couple accounts and the passcode ends up being the same for all.
    2.  Changing the passcode from the iUser settings page does not work.
    3.  First creation of the second user will not login, have to reboot.
    iPad 2, JB’d, 5.0.1

    Hi I installed on iOS 5.01. It sounds like a nice idea. Nevertheless in its actual state the app is not usable. Deletion or installation of an app will do so on both test users. Where is the personalization? Also switching users takes a long time full reboot…

    The basic idea sounds good but it is not done that way. Regards
