Passwords are human-chosen secrets that are connected to you as a person. When creating a password, people tend to create a password that is an association to something they know or recognize; passwords are more than just words and numbers. The aim of this research is to look further into how different user types select their Android Unlock Patterns. This takes previous research a step further by including the human properties that may impact the user's choice in graphical passwords like demographics and physical properties of the mobile phone. I believe that graphical passwords are more than just pictures and graphical objects. Will I able to predict users choice in Android Pattern Locks based analysing different user types? "Tell me who you are an I will tell you your lock pattern!"
For my master thesis I need to collected data for my analysis of peoples choice in Android Unlock Patterns. The survey is only accessable on smartphones because this is the natural environment for the Android Pattern Lock. The survey is divided in two parts. The first part is asking you to create 3 different Android Unlock Patterns. The second part is 13 easy questions that is easily build up for you to answer on your mobile device. The survey is anonymous. I do not ask for or store data that are trackable back to you. The data that is being collected is only used for the research. The only persons that have access to the data is the research group, consisting of me, my supervisor, and my co-supervisor. The survey is build by me, and is not provided by any third parties.
