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.

Almost like Windows 8 I was looking for a photo lockscreen like my PC has, so I installed this. It's a little rough, but on the right track and just needs a few edits.First, I would remove the notification bar stating that it is running. Permanent notifications are annoying. Second, allow curved lines. I gave the dev money for the unlocked version because I like the effort that has been put into this. Most importantly, I use Timely alarm, and I would like the ability to snooze or turn off without having to unlock the screen 1st
