Picture Password Lockscreen allows you to unlock your phone by drawing gestures such as points, lines, and circles on your chosen images. It frees users from the traditional and less secure unlock methods because there are close to an infinite number of combination of gestures. It provides an effective layer of protection against the two most common methods of illegal access gaining to a device- brute-force password hacking and shoulder-surfing.

Forget PIN codes or patterns, you can now draw points, lines, and/or circles to unlock your phone.

To setup, select the background image and draw the gestures. To unlock, draw the saved gestures on the lockscreen.

Will this app work on devices with enterprise accounts that require a pin, etc.? I'm guessing no, but I'm hoping it's yes as there aren't any disclaimers.

There is an option to not override the stock Android lockscreen so Picture Password will display after the stock lockscreen. Android requires Secure lockscreen (PIN, passcode etc.) if you have enterprise or VPN set up
