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.

Rough around the edges, but getting there I dove in and dropped the $$ for the plus key as I was looking for a WiFi whitelist lock screen app. I have suggestions that I will be emailing the dev, but first impressions are good. However I was hoping this would give me full control over gestures (ie, curlicue) not preset gesture options of point, line or circle. Time & date options are available but VERY basic. I like the rotating images and gestures for the lock screen.

I cant use this app properly because i refuse to pay for a free app [kind of sort of] I got done with all the instructions and just about to start when it says i have to pay for the picture that i put on there. I understand if it was the apps picture but it wasn't. This app is not really free. Its free to download but you must pay to use the app.
