    hide the directions during entering the picture password


    Hi,
    I have the Win8 on my laptop and use the picture password for entering to my user.
    its so easy and fun but unfortunately my password is visible all the time I want to enter my account...
    Is there any possible way to hide the directions during entering the password??

    Hello Karimi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    I'm not sure what you mean. You should see something this when signing in with your picture password.



    Could you post a screenshot showing this with your password blacked out of course to see if it may help ID the issue.

    Thanks Brink,
    I mean the path I move my mouse is visible, if some one is sitting beside me can recognize my password by watching my screen.
    lets say it this way, in usual password think every character you enter appear for a second to show you the word you entered. here the default format is the same and every movement of the mouse is visible and it draws the path (circle, dot or points)
    Click image for larger version

    But I found out every time i connect my computer to the projector it hides the clicks and path on the projector screen (still visible on my computer screen)

    Is there any way to hide my picture password when I'm entering it??

    Not that I'm aware of, but they do only show very briefly right after you make each gesture to only show you what you just did.

    About all you can do is do it when no one is watching like your would when typing in a password.

    UUHH, too disappointing...I thought this must have resolved some were in registries or windows security settings...
