Windows 8 Picture Password

For some added security in Windows 8 they have added a new feature called Picture Password, basically it is a password that uses a picture

instead of simply using numbers and letters. On the picture you use a combination of lines, circles and taps to indicate the password.

Here is what you need to do to setup the picture password:

  • Open charms
  • Click settings
  • Click more PC settings
  • Click users
  • Select create a picture password

Picture Password

You can use whatever picture you want to setup your password, so play around with the combinations and find one that will be impossible to crack.

You also need to setup a number/letter password linked to your account in case you forget the lines/taps or something goes wrong with it.
