    Does the picture password work for non-touchscreen computers. I would never use it, but just for common knowledge. I think I would be hard to do a picture password with a mouse.

    Yep, it works with non touch-screens - although I agree that it may not be as much use with a mouse!

    A picture password, with a mouse? It sounds good, but only with touchscreen

    Using a mouse with Picture Password works just fine. It is easier with clicks and lines, but circles do work and it isn't that difficult. Yes it was designed for touch, but works just as well with mouse.

    It works perfectly -- I tried it today, It is a little bit clunky though, trying to swipe the right patterns.

    It works great. I've been using it for a while.

    It works perfectly for me but I honestly cannot see the point of using this feature if you have non-touchscreen PC. I guess for some, it's fun to click on a picture? I don't know, I don't judge. For now, my favorite mode to protect my PC is through a pin. Simple, yet safe.

    Grandpa Core here. *cough* I know it's old-fashioned, but I still type in my password, with a keyboard, using my hands. *heave*
