Pixelock.com :: the unforgettable password
September 23, 2010 - Pixelock.com, an innovative new online security service designed to provide easily remembered, secure and complex passwords to internet users has been launched. The service is available on the website https://www.pixelock.com from anywhere in the world, and is available to try for an unlimited period for free. There is also a simpler, completely free and anonymous version of the system called Pixelock Lite available at https://www.pixelock.com/lite/.

For a long time insecure, easily-guessed and overly reused passwords has been a large component of the online threat against internet users, until now. Pixelock allows even the most forgetful people to remember long complex passwords like "dm8g4Li2us5CA2c" by turning the password into an image based mnemonic. Instead of trying to recall a long, complicated text password, you can remember a series of points in a sequence of images. As an example, your secure and complex password could be: your grandmother's ear in your family photo, your best friends shoelaces in your school team photo, the mailbox of your neighbour in a photo of your street. Pixelock takes these secret and easy to remember points, and turns them into a text password that can be used for any website service or anything that requires a password.

You can also use the exact same series of points on the same series of images to generate different passwords for different services, allowing you to reuse your password without running the risk of a hack in one place endangering other parts of your online presence. Pixelock is also completely safe and confidential, since no passwords are actually saved anywhere. It is just a means to make it easier for you to remember your password, and so even if a breach did occur, your passwords are safely stored in only one place - your own head, where no hacker could access them.

Online security experts have long agreed that one of the biggest threats facing the internet is the insecure behaviour of users when it comes to choosing and protecting their passwords. Eliminate that threat today for free - go to https://www.pixelock.com now and try it out.
