Signing in with a picture password

2 minutes, 39 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Passwords can be complex and hard to remember. With picture passwords, it's easy to use and simple to remember how to sign in to your computer. http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2011/12/16/signing-in-with-a-picture-password.aspx

    I like this feature as a gixmo and am pleased it is a part of the login process.  That said the new pin feature is what gets me in 99% of the time as it is the fastest to execute.

  • What about password recovery ?
    Will this feature support it ?
    I assume it makes a copy of the image it use so you can move the image you chose to a different location without any problems.
    I assume this feature will support mouse too. 

    If for some reason the picture password doesn't work, the touch display stopped responding to touch for example, can you switch to type a normal character password instead with a keyboard ?
