Towards a more effective graphical password design for touch screen devices

The objective of this project is to conduct exploratory research into the use of graphical passwords on touch screen devices. Graphical password schemes have been proposed as a possible alternative to text-based password schemes. Humans can remember pictures better than text, thus graphical passwords may contribute to a more positive user experience. We also propose a novel graphical password scheme designed specifically for touch screen devices. Since touch screen devices dominate the mobile world, this project has the potential to influence design of mobile user experiences.
