    So, I like having the security of requiring a password or pin to unlock my Lumia. The thought of a stranger picking up my phone and immediately having access to all of my contacts, my facebook account, email account, etc. gives me the creeps. I realize that inputting a short pin # to unlock my phone is not a big deal, but I have seen some of my iPhone friends with an app that allows them to use a particular finger swipe to unlock their phone in lieu of a pin #. (An image of this sort of thing is below.) Does anyone know of an equivalent app for WP8?

    I don't know how you can do that on an iPhone besides jailbreaking it.

    But I do hope WP adds more unlock services, like face, pattern, and letters.

    Windows 8 has it. It's called picture password. So theoretically it will be easy to get it on the phone

    Android has this. It's very convenient and, in my opinion, quicker and easier than a PIN. It would be a welcome inclusion in future WP8 updates (but then again, so many other things would be as well <sigh>).

    I don't want the finger swipe for WP8, but they should definitely add picture password support! They already have it, just implement!

    As others have said I think they should just have picture password. Its unique, quick and less predictable that a swipe or pin password.
