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.

E Scarlet Excellent app. You can customize however you want. Only complaint is the Whitelist double tap thing has never worked for me and I have had this for a few months. Also, it sometimes does not work and I just reset my phone (turn it off and on)

Cool app Like the idea but could not stand using the app; it takes away the lock screen clock and date on your phone. It still gives you the notification bar to see the time, but the app gives you a notification whenever you go to the lock screen. It said that disabling the notifications might cause the app to stop functioning.
