Windows 8 will be implementing a Picture Password
If you know anything about security, this only smells like trouble. The user selects a personal picture. After a personal picture is selected the user must implement a series of gestures. These gestures are tap, line, and circle.
In my opinion, this is a horrible idea that Microsoft’s Engineers came up with. I sense this will only cause chaos for the user, and a headache for Network Administrators.
A large part of workplace user calls are because they have locked themselves out.
What do you think? Good Idea from Microsoft’s Engineers, or a headache in waiting?
The initial Beta release of Window’s 8 is set for February. The launch is expected late of 2012.
