Forgotten Passwords: A Thing of the Past?

Most of us have had to request our password again at some time or other. If you think it’s annoying when you forget, imagine what the help desk is going through. Not only is it time-consuming to hand out passwords again, but it also eats up money.

What if you could access a visual graphic instead? Passlogix.com has created software that allows the user’s computer to display a screen containing a drink bar when a password is requested. The user clicks on the correct bottles to create a drink concoction. Add some ice and you’re in.

British company, ID Arts has created similar software that allows the user to click on a series of faces to access sites.

The only thing to figure out now is which is easier: remembering the password or which drink goes with which site.
