Abstract

Android allows its users to select from several different lock screens: Pattern, Pin and sometimes fingerprint. However, if someone watches you enter your password, by the motions of your fingers, they can easily figure out what the code is. To make it harder for eavesdroppers to access your phone, the input needs to be different every time you unlock your screen. By making the lock screen a game similar to Mastermind, you can have different input every time you unlock your phone.
