Step 2: Once purchased/installed, you can exit Cydia and head over to Settings->PassDial to configure its preferences according to your liking. Under the settings page, you will come across the following configurations.
- Kill Switch: A toggle switch to Enable/Disable PassDial tweak any time. In case you feel like you no longer require this tweak, you can simply disable it by turning the toggle switch to OFF.
- Phone Number: Here, you can assign a phone number which would be dialled on entering a specific passcode. You will set a passcode for the same in the next step. Suppose 1800-SWAP-MY-APP is the number we entered.
- Passcode: This will be the unique speed dial identifier for the phone number you entered in the above step. Let’s say we enter 1234 here.
Now, when on lock screen, if we enter a passcode 1234, it will automatically dial our pre-saved phone number, i.e, 1800-SWAP-MY-APP.
