    I found my picture password on my KEY2 LE now allows unlimited trial. After 5 times, I remembered it should require the pin to unlock. Now, it simply allows unlimited trial with no delay. So eventually within a minute, it can be unlocked by random shipping.

    I don't know since when it was broken. Does it happen for you, too?

    Is it still set to wipe after 10 failed attempts?

    Nope. But it shouldn't be related, should it?

    I was expecting it to stop picture password after 5 failed attempts and switched to requesting a PIN.

    Sounds like it's a bug with Picture Password on but set to wipe after 10 failed attempts off then.

    Slightly unrelated. Is picture password available on blackberry launcher or as a downloadable option for non-bb devices?

    Nope. But those 2 settings shouldn't be related.

    It should switch back to pin password after a certain number of trial with picture passport. Also it should slow down the trails after a few incorrect attempts. That no longer happens now.

    Well, it's working as designed - just not according to how you think it "should" work.

    Current behavior is anyone can hack the Picture Password within a minute.

    Why do you think it's as designed?

    Are you saying it's a "feature" so that a person who forgot his picture password can unlock his phone?

    If it's really by design, it needs an improvement. That's what I am saying. I am wondering if it's really the "design".

    It's been the same for 5 years, so clearly it's as intended.

    And since BlackBerry Android has been discontinued and updates ended, it will not be changed.

    op, use a pin. it only allows ten attempts. as I recall the OS recommended a pin when I was originally setting up the phone. I was disappointed as I really liked picture password on my Z30. but the combo of fingerprint and pin seems very secure to me.

    If BlackBerry users had gotten a taste of Face ID.... Picture Password wouldn't even exist anymore.
