re: Windows 8 Picture Passwords Easily Cracked
I tried several times but it not working properly on my computer. When i created the password reset disk, it even can't boot my computer. It is so weird. Luckily, my friend suggested me a tool called UUkeys Windows Password Recovery. It only took me a few minutes to reset the password.

There is no option to remove password if your system is in domain joined.If your PC are in work group you can disable the password option from control panal-->user accounts then you can have only Picture password option.Please let me know if you are not able to do this.I will help you. You can try iseePassword windows password recoery tool to reset your password.

I always thought it'd be easier to crack a picture password in-person anyway because the screen would show a 'trail' of finger swipes.

re: Windows 8 Picture Passwords Easily Cracked
I love the title "Windows 8 Picture Passwords Easily Cracked" as usual I have to read the entire InformationWeek article to discover that the title again is misleading. Not that I'm defending W8 (I actually like it though) but I find InfoWeek has editorials written by folks at Apple or Google I guess.
Please but some comparative data into your articles, stating some figures is fine but put it up against something that means something to all of us and it will be more useful. And correct your attention getting article names, less informed folks are more impressionable that some.

re: Windows 8 Picture Passwords Easily Cracked
I like the idea of a password strength meter because let's face it this is probably still stronger than a 1234 or ABCD password alternative. For a lot of use cases it's probably plenty strong and more likely to be used.
