 Graphical passwords for better security

Interesting idea for login security. One thought I had was that if the user can provide the photo, then in many cases the click points may be easily guess-able.

"One solution works by picking 'click points' on an image previously selected by the user. And another one, designed to avoid 'shoulder surfing,' works by clicking on random icons located inside a collection of other icons chosen by the user."
