You may try to restart your computer to see how it’s look like.

When login, you don’t have to be precisely accurate. As long as you draw the gesture around the predetermined area, you should be able to login.


The Picture Password method can be safe if you are using your computer in a closed area where there’s no one behind you that can see the screen.

But I’d like to recommend you to keep the PIN and Password method available in case login with Picture Password isn’t the most feasible option.
