Take PINoptic's Braingame challenge

PINoptic : 03 December, 2008  (Technical Article)
Holiday bonus prize and £500 available to winner of PINoptic's braingame demonstrating the company's alternative approach to traditional password systems
The PINoptic Braingame is an exciting online test of your memory skills, requiring you to memorise a series of 4 numbers and pictures before entering them in the quickest time possible. There are 76 levels in total getting more difficult as you progress with three attempts on each level. Who ever correctly reaches level 76 the fastest by December 24th will be walking away with an extra £500 in their pocket.

While the game is a fun free opportunity to challenge your memory skills and potentially win a fantastic prize there is a serious note behind the symbols and numbers. The PINoptic Braingame is based on a new security product challenging the security and safety provided by traditional PINs and passwords solutions.

"Most traditional security solutions are easily compromised leaving most of us extremely exposed," says PINoptic CEO Colin Allison. "For example, when you are entering your PIN it's not difficult for someone to look over your shoulder, also known as shoulder surfing, and witness the code being entered. With a PINoptic solution it statistically would take someone watching you and a good view of the picture code 10 times to figure out what your PIN maybe.

Based on our standard image and symbol set, the Braingame was devised to be a lot of fun but to also highlight how easy a symbol based PIN can be remembered. We want to prove to people that it doesn't have to be complicated to be secure."

PINoptic is an innovative authentication security product that allows the user to 'login' using a picture-based alternative that is up to 98 times more secure than most current products including the chip & PIN solution being used by most financial institutions.
