Mad in Sweden: PassPath

Published on .

MadinSweden, the developers who helped to create unusual apps like Forsman & Bodenfors' Kondis diet aid for Ikea and the Sleep Talk Recorder, just launched Pass Path, a new app that helps you to protect your photo collection not with a pin number or password, but with a special geometric pattern that you recreate on your touchpad. While four digit pin numbers allow for 10,000 different combinatinos, a PassPath pattern allows for 12 billion billion, promising "the security benefits of a long complex password, without the hassle of remembering it." Users can also opt to let PassPath destroy your stored information after 10 failed login attempts.
