Picture Password Lockscreen

Picture Password Lockscreen


Picture Password Lockscreen allows you to unlock your phone by drawing gestures such as points, lines, and circles on your chosen images. It frees users from the traditional and less secure unlock methods because there are close to an infinite number of combination of gestures. It provides an effective layer of protection against the two most common methods of illegal access gaining to a device- brute-force password hacking and shoulder-surfing.

Forget PIN codes or patterns, you can now draw points, lines, and/or circles to unlock your phone.

To setup, select the background image and draw the gestures. To unlock, draw the saved gestures on the lockscreen.

I like the concept but can't see how it is anything useful... I like what you have going here but honestly it just seems a little annoying. Unless someone has the right image and screen size, this is difficult to use. I don't really like having to draw 3 things at once either. I'd much rather have my pattern or pin lock for quicker access. This just does not offer enough efficiency for a user that needs to access their phone quickly.

Immersive Mode This app is fantastic but it really needs immersive mode for phones with on-screen buttons (unless there's an option already, in that case please ignore this).
