In many cases, human-selected text passwords are either too easy to guess or too difficult to memorize. Graphical passwords reduce the memory burden of users by replacing the task of recalling the password to that of recognizing the password. In this paper, we present a graphical password scheme based on the images of sports celebrates. Experimental evaluation shows that the retention time of the proposed SportsFaces is greater than alphanumeric password systems.
