Jimmy proof deadbolt

What exactly is a Jimmy proof deadbolt?

"A jimmy-proof lock is often located on the inside of a door. A jimmy-proof lock gets its name from the fact that it cannot be accessed from the outer portion of the lock on the front of the door. This prevents someone from prying off the lock. A jimmy-proof lock is also easier to install than a deadbolt."
