The path - mockup by 0rAX0 The path - mockup by 0rAX0
The path (mockup): a new approach to Android's security lock.

Description:

Hello, this is my approach to the lock/unlock utility found in Android OS, basically you start by selecting a new shape or draw one, then you select the path you take within that shape, for instance, someone would choose to go right-down, another would choose right-down-left...
Anyways, it's just an idea, it needs more work, and more variations(i.e. the ability to select the width for more choices and improved security, because this shapes are easy to crack :) )
I need now to work on developing the idea, unless someone with spare time wants to develop this app, I think it will stay just a picture.

Tools:
This mockup was made on Ubuntu Linux, using Inkscape.
the globe and the light bulb icons are from here [link]

Don't forget to comment/fave :)
Cheers.

One thing though, remove the download more option. Hackers could create modded path codes to act as a backdoor.

Try introducing this idea on a few android dev boards, sourceforge, github and such. I am sure someone somewhere would jump on this idea. Perhaps a root app?

Yeah, I always promise of updating this and forget. I'm currently a little bit distracted but I'll do that in the near future. And I shall consider you suggestion regarding the security. Thanks. :)

Hey!
I love this idea. It's elegant.
If you can somehow make it a bit harder to crack (there's only 3 choices right now), I'd be glad to start developing this with you!

Well, I can't do (for now), and no one is working on it yet, so I don't know!
