PixelPin "Pictures replace Passwords"

A session at Digital Shoreditch Festival 2012

Thursday 24th May, 2012

10:33am to 10:36am (GMT)

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.
