    This is just small reminder to change your SSH login and password. With all of the jb iPhones these days it's pretty easy to just grab a laptop, scan for some iPhones and ssh to them without the person knowing. They can steal the info on your iPhone. Regardless if ou keep ssh on or off it's just a smart thing to do just in case. If you frequent crowded places than definitely change it. Even if there's a low
    chance of this happening it's better to spend 2 minutes to do it then not.

    Open MobileTerminal, type 'su', the default password is 'alpine', and then type 'passwd', pick new password, and done!

    Wouldn't the person with the said phone need to enable wifi with the same network connection as the other person with the laptop for snooping to work?
  5. Or, you could not keep SSH and auto connect for wifi on 24/7... It doesn't even make sense to have SSH enabled at all times.

    It's also not smart to do, unless you consistently use SSH.
    Good bye battery life.

    This.

    Saves battery life to keep it off when you don't need it, too.
