    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 ?
