BlackBerry 10.2.1 introduces a new unlock screen called Picture Password. BlackBerry took a page right out of Microsoft with building their own version of Picture Password.

However, the Picture Password feature of BlackBerry 10.2.1 does not use swipe gestures. Instead, you select a picture of your choosing and a single digit number.

You then place the number in a desired position. Once set and the phone is unlocked it shows a grid of numbers. You must pull your selected number to the position on the picture you previously designated.

What’s interesting, is each time you unlock your BlackBerry 10 smartphone with Picture Password the grid of numbers refreshes. This adds an added buffer of security as your selected number is always in a random location. See it all in action in the video below:
