Apple Inc. has applied for a patent on the use of images to authenticate a Mac or iDevice user. The patent application, dubbed “Image-Based Authentication,” describes a method by which an image of some sort will be displayed on a Mac or iDevice screen. Aside from that image, options will be displayed asking users to correctly identify what it is. If they answer correctly, they’ll be able to access the respective device. An incorrect answer keeps it locked.
