If you have ever had problems in remembering your password you will know how annoying it can be. PixelPin is an innovative new approach to mobile and web security using pictures instead of alphanumeric passwords. Questions answered : Rather than type in a password you select points (passpoints) on a personal picture. The PixelPin approach makes remembering a lot easier, it's more secure than using a PIN or an alphanumeric password, and eliminates phishing. There are real advantages when you are on a mobile or tablet device that does not have a keyboard. It's a lot quicker and does not suffer from the auto-correct problems you can find on these devices.

Who has never given up on looking for specific information on the internet because it took too long to find out? Even if we know that the information is available somewhere, it's often tough to find it at the very moment we need it, and most of all in a mobility context.

Connecthings NFC software platform is licensed to any customers who want to bridge their physical world - POS, cities, museum, home - to digital contextual services using mobile phones' screen and connectivity. The session presents how transport companies, museums, brands, who seek to deliver contextual and profile-based information to their audience, can make it happen by creating easy access to their services through the implementation of NFC tags.
