There is something about alcohol that forces you to contact people. Usually the drunk calls or messages you send will cause you to shrink hard tomorrow morning. But if you have a jailbreak iPhone, you can help prevent this potential embarrassment with a free tweak.
Aptly called ConfirmToSend, CydiaGeek & # 39; s handy tweak provides a pop-up confirmation prompt for Messages, Mail, WhatsApp, and other messaging apps to allow you to edit at the last minute or leave it at all. The tweak can also send you a warning when you call from the Phone app or FaceTime and can be installed with Cydia or Sileo ̵
Step 1: Install ConfirmToSend
As mentioned above, ConfirmToSend is already available in Cydia or Sileo, so all you have to do is open an app and go to the search page. From there, search for "ConfirmToSend" and select it from the list of results, then tap "Install" (Cydia) or "Get" (Sileo) and follow the prompts to continue with the installation.
ConfirmToSend becomes not automatically enabled after your iPhone resprings, so you must visit the settings page to enable the tweak. Once inside, you can enable the tweak for all supported apps by selecting "Enable ConfirmToSend" at the top, or enable the tweak only for specific apps such as Messages, Mail, Phone, FaceTime, WhatsApp, etc. by tapping the corresponding switches.
Once you have made your selections, you do not need to resubmit your device for the changes to take effect – simply kill the apps that you have enabled to use the app switcher and reopen them.
With ConfirmToSend When enabled, a confirmation prompt appears before you record an email or message or before you call. That said, the tweak has some remarkable peculiarities that you should keep paying attention to before you fully trust it.
While the confirmation prompt appears when you make a telephone call with the iPhone phone app keypad, calls are made by tapping a name or number in the app's favorite, recent, or contact page. could not give the prompt. You must keep this limitation in mind when it comes to avoiding unintended calls, because this tweak will not prevent them from happening.
In addition, responding quickly to a message (iMessage, WhatsApp, etc.) or if you tap a missed call from the Reporting Center, ConfirmToSend's confirmation prompt is also not activated. So if you want to display the prompts while chatting with important or sensitive contacts, you must do so in the (supported) messaging app itself.
Hopefully, CydiaGeek will address the problems highlighted above, in addition to support add for other popular messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger and Messenger Lite with future updates to make ConfirmToSend even more useful. We will definitely post an update if something changes, so keep an eye on it.
