If you’re sensing an odd behavior in your iPhone, whether it’s slowing down or stuttering animations, you know something’s not right. It might be difficult for you to know if your iPhone security is at risk due to some reasons. However, there’s a new app on the App Store called System and Security Info that allows you to see a great deal of information about your device.

System And Security Info App Manages iPhone Security And Detects If It Is Jailbroken

Ranging from the iPhone security standpoint to keeping a check on the disk usage status, the app covers all. There’s also another feature that will let you know if your iPhone has been infected with a malware or other such deviating stuff from a standard system, like running processes and more.

Furthermore, the app showcases an extraordinary feature that might not be present on other apps on the App Store. The System and Security Info app can detect if your iPad or iPhone has been jailbroken. Stefan Esser, an ex jailbreak contributor was involved in the project. In a blog post, Esser announced:

As a company known for iOS kernel and jailbreaking research SektionEins is from time to time asked by concerned iPhone user’s if we can determine if their device got hacked or secretly jailbroken to gather information about them. To find this out with a high level of certainty we have to utilize private jailbreak exploits, because Apple locks down iOS devices from both defenders and attackers, which proves to be more often a problem for defenders than for the attackers. This is a costly process. We therefore wanted to provide the public with a low cost solution that allows to find out if someone used one of the public jailbreak or a customized version to hack and backdoor your device. System and Security Info therefore runs a number of tests to determine if it can find artefacts of one of the known jailbreaks and runs further generic tests to determine if e.g. the code signing functionality seems to be still working or not.

So technically speaking, System and Security Info is an app that many of us would love to have on our iPhone. Not only because this app can detect a jailbroken iOS device, but it can also detect malware that might potentially harm your device. The app is priced at $0.99 and can be downloaded for both iPhone and iPad.
