How to Enable Windows 8 Picture Password?

Recently Microsoft has launched Windows 8 Operating System with many new and unique features as compared with its earlier version Windows 7. Out of these new and unique features, picture password is one of the features which is very attractive and getting popular as lightening speed. This feature allows its user to prevent unauthorized access by enabling password with the help of picture. In picture password authentication system, user can select any picture (to appear on login screen) and register specific patterns by touching (or dragging) finger on the picture.

If you are Windows 8 user and wanted to enable picture password then you can following these steps as given below.

1. Click "Settings" on the Charms bar.

2. In settings panel click "More PC Settings" -> Click "Users" (on the left side of the screen).

3. On clicking "Users" you will see your account information. From "Sign-in options" click "create a picture password" button.

4. You will see "Picture Password Wizard". In the first screen of wizard you will be asked to select a picture to be used for password.

5. After selecting picture you will need to register (two times) 3 gestures on picture by dragging your finger on the picture. You can draw gestures in any shape like line, circle, triangle etc.

Note : Be careful about the direction in which you draw gestures because they are direction sensitive.

6. If you get success in making same gesture (depending upon some accuracy level) then Windows 8 saves it as picture login password for your account and from next time onwards you need to repeat this gesture to login to your user account in Windows 8.

So, now no need to remember long and complex passwords, login quickly by dragging finger on picture. I am sure you will be very excited to share this great feature with your friends too.
