Microsoft Windows 8 introduced many revolutionary concepts and new features. For example, two new connection options have been introduced – Picture Password or PIN.

Picture Password allows you to use an image from your library as a password. You must make three gestures on the screen that you want to use as password. For example, you can select a part of the image, draw it and resize it.

Set an image password on Windows 8

Follow these steps :

1 Open Control Panel by clicking the Control Panel option on the standard Metro-style start screen.

2 In the Control Panel window, select User, then click the Create Image Password option.

3. you will be prompted to enter your login password before you can set an image password. Make sure your Windows 8 account has a password. If you do not have one, you cannot create an image

(4. then scroll password for the image you want to use as a password and select it.

5) You will be prompted to perform 3 gestures that can either select, resize, create straight lines or circles. You must redraw the pattern for confirmation.

Bingo! You have successfully configured an image password. You will be asked to redraw the design the next time you log in.

If you think Picture Password is too complicated for you, but you still want to experience a change in connection method, Microsoft Windows 8 has a solution for you in the form of a PIN.

This method is faster than the traditional Login and Picture Password method, but less secure than Picture Password, because it can have a maximum of four digits as password. Nevertheless, it is worth trying if you are using a touch device.
