Touch Unlock for iOS

It. Is. ALIVEEEEE. So for the last “very long time” some folks and I have been working hard in any second of spare time we could find to write an app called Touch Unlock. Basically, the app is available for all iOS devices which have Apple’s Touch ID hardware and allows you to lock and unlock your Mac via Bluetooth Low Energy. And the best thing? It is totally free, no strings attached. »

MEMSCAN v1.2 - now supporting ARM64

Hey all, First off, if you don’t know what MEMSCAN is, see the original post. So I’m pretty happy right now, I figured out why MEMSCAN was having some technical issues with certain apps.

Securi-Tay IV

##Securi-Tay IV So it’s that special time of year again when families come together. Well, the Abertay Hackers family does at least.

Small updates to SuccessID

#Touch ID reason text Today I made some small tweaks to SucccessID which some people have been asking for. It was a relatively simple fix, I’m not sure why I didn’t actually put the code in, in the first place. The Alertview shown by successID when Local Authentication API’s are invoked now displays the reason text, which is specified by the application you’re testing. #SuccessID prompts not appearing I experienced an issue the other day where for a specific app I was testing, the SuccessID prompts weren’t appearing. »
