Abstract or Summary:
The most common approach to authentication involves a password entered on a keyboard with letters, numbers and special symbols. Recently, however, touchscreen devices have become widespread. Text passwords are still most commonly used on these devices even though studies show that users generally perform better with text input using a physical keyboard than a virtual keyboard. In this paper we present a design and evaluation of a new gesture based password scheme for mobile devices, GesturePass. We speculated that gestures would be familiar and make passwords easy to enter without burdensome visual attention.
